Riot Games has revealed the 2021 League of Legends ranked rewards for season 11 – and Blitzcrank is fired up and ready to serve with this year’s victorious skin.
The Blitzcrank victorious skin will be awarded to players who have reached gold elo and above this year, in either solo/due queue or flex queue, and will launch with patch 11.22. You can see images below and a Victorious Blitzcrank PBE animations clip here.
Players have until November 15th at 11.59pm in their local server’s timezone to attain rewards for this season, which will be distributed within four weeks after the season’s end, Riot confirmed in its ranked rewards 2021 post.
Ahead of today’s reveal, Riot initially teased a zoomed-in image of the doll in Blitzcrank’s hand, leading some players to believe the victorious skin would be for Annie this year.
There are also different chroma colours of the Victorious Blitzcrank skin depending on each rank a player reaches. For example, the platinum Victorious Blitzcrank chroma is green and the master chroma is purple.
Also, those who finished their ranked placements this year will receive an Eternals Blitzcrank Series 1 permanent, which unlocks achievements and stats in-game when using Blitzcrank, a ranked profile icon and profile banner trim.
Riot also revealed Clash and Honour rewards in its post linked to above.
Finally, Riot said there will be no rank-specific merchandise available this season. For example, in the past, players have been able to purchase shirts and hoodies with their rank and summoner name on.
