Only a few weeks have passed after the last new Champion, Seraphine, arrived at the League of Legends live servers, but time doesn’t stop and Riot Games is determined to present us the sixth new champion of the year (as they promised) before 2020 ends.

As mentioned before, there is no official confirmation, but it looks like we won’t have to wait too much to see what is going to happen!
