The splash art for this season’s Championship Ashe skin was added this week to the League of Legends Public Beta Environment.
Revealed last month, Championship Ashe (the splash art for which can be viewed above) is part of a yearly series of skins released during the League of Legends World Championship. Each year, Riot chooses one champion to get the championship skin treatment, which becomes available for purchase around the time frame of worlds. So far there have been five other championship skins: Riven for Season 2, Thresh for Season 3, Shyvana for Season 4, Kalista for Season 5, and Zed for Season 6.
Starting last year, 25 percent of the revenue generated by championship skins was added to the worlds prize pool. As a result, the prize pool more than doubled to more than $5 million.
A golden chroma of the skin will also become unlockable during worlds for 320 “tokens” that players can earn. Players with enough tokens will be able to craft the golden chroma variation of Championship Ashe in the crafting menu, and it will be removed from the crafting system at the end of the event. How players can earn tokens is not yet known.
Along with the splash art, a special loading screen for the skin has also been added to the PBE, which adds some decoration around the frame of the champion when loading into a game.
