Although only a fan-art, the FPX costume group designed by Chinese gamers still makes many people confuse that this is Riot’s genuine goods.
As the owner of the 2019 League of Legends World Championship, FunPlus Phoenix will receive a reward from Riot Games with the World skins for all 5 players.
As expected, the genuine FPX costumes from Riot will be released in May, but to the Chinese League of Legends community, they seem to have waited too long to witness the event appearance of the 2nd Worlds skin line in history belongs to the LPL area.
So a Chinese artist with the stage name Mantiscorbis recently designed the World Championship skin for FPX, and it is worth mentioning that, even though it is fanmade, Mantiscorbis’s work is intentional Extremely unique idea with great image quality.
If not for the list of champions in this work is a little different from the official announcement from Riot (Lee Sin, Malphite was replaced by Qiyana and Nautilus), many gamers have mistakenly thought this is a picture photo of formal attire leaked from Riot.
5 skins introduced in the fan-art FPX skin series include: FPX Gangplank, FPX Qiyana, FPX Nautilus, FPX Kai’Sa and FPX Thresh – FPX Skins
