In 2018, Riot Games delivered 80 skins. In 2019, they shipped over 100 skins. This season 2020, they’re going for 120 skins.
Details about New Skins in 2020
According to Riot Games’ Product Lead – Johnathan Bellissimoh, Riot Games are going to give those champions who haven’t received skins for a long time.
Here is the list of these champions: Skarner, Xerath, Mordekaiser, Kindred, Rek’Sai, Vel’Koz, Karthus, Sion, Twitch, Taric, Pantheon, Nautilus, Trundle, Bard, Ornn, and Taliyah.
You can also read in the article below; about how those champs haven’t received a skin for a long time: Why Some Champions Haven’t Received A Skin For 1000+ Days?
They also are going to make new skins for the popular champions as well. For example, Lux (of course), Ezreal, Ahri, and Kai’Sa.
Bellissimoh also mentioned, “One of our hopes is that champion mains can count the time since they last got a skin in months instead of years.”
While there are skins set that were successfully promoted and delivered such as PROJECT and Star Guardian, Snow Day Skins seem to be forgotten by the players.
As mentioned in the dev video, Riot will also give players new creative thematics to promote new skins including High-noon, snow day.
Mecha Kingdoms Skins
Normally, Riot usually delivers New Years Skins at the beginning of every year. However, these skins are not “globally used.”
Eastern players seemed to enjoy these skins more than players from the other regions. Therefore, this year, Riot is going for something different that would reach every player in all the servers/ regions.
They want to have this new thematic – Mecha Kingdoms, to create a new take on sci-fi fantasy by bridging Eastern and Western inspirations.
Riot Games come up with the idea of Mecha Kingdoms, a legendary Sci-fi universe. This is where the greatest heroes from Warring Kingdoms unite against a monstrous threat by piloting Giant Mechs.
The coming Mecha Kingdoms Skins will be available with these champions: Garen, Leona, Draven, Sett, and Jax.

Events (Game Modes and Missions)
For some specials events, players shouldn’t be required to sign in for 30 days straights. You can gain all your “win of the day” on days you are available to play
Riot will also improve the Event Passes so then players will have more free stuff and don’t require them to play or pay their life-off for these events’ missions.
