Regardless, the shapes and animations are appealing and fluid. The blue glow on the eyes, back and forearms give the armour an unsuitable futuristic air; though they look great. This bundle contained all 5 of the skins, including: Championship Riven, Championship Shyvana, Championship Thresh, Championship Kalista, and Championship Zed. Since then it hasn't returned to the store. Splash Art: The dark and foreboding feel of the piece is evident at a glance. The best ones might be Riven and Shyvana due to how they stand apart from their other skins. Model: New model and blue particles for Thresh.
The upper half is a completely different matter. The model is great in both skins but the particles are better developed though less solid and more misty in the new incarnation. In consequence, this is a piece with great potential and many hints at possibilities that are never developed with more elements; even subtly. Sounds: New sounds for each recall. Particles: New particles for his abilities, auto-attack and death plus blue souls. Truth be told, the particles are rather dull with an homogeneous, pale blue largely lacking in contrast of tones. There are some sellers that sell which contain rare skins, but unless Riot bring back the skin in the future Which they have expressed they will not then this skin will remain a legacy.
The original Championship Riven skin was one of the most sought after skins and people have been begging Riot to bring it back for years. The armour is detailed with several dents and nice use of reflections. Animations: New recall animations for both her forms. Still, for an armoured Riven the skin works despite its peculiar aspect; practically the same can be said about her hairstyle. Only one player successfully managed this which made him the proud owner of one of the rarest League of Legends skins out there. Everything works towards specifically defined goals and it all seems effective.
Additionally, the glowing spear she wields, more than the ones on her back, has a pleasant supernatural glow; faintly echoed by her eyes. The model is good and so is the blue smoke. Originally the skin was planned to be released as just a normal skin under a different name. They manage to make the skin cohesive and allow the models to shine with their own light. To summarise, there are now 2 versions of the skin; The first is the original version named Championship Riven and was obtained back in 2012 as the end of Season 2 reward.
Eventually Riot disabled skin codes which brought an end to trading them online. Dragon: the dragon form is even more overt about the cartoon style. In order to celebrate the original owners of the skin, Riot made some visual updates to the legacy skin. She still looks dangerous but far from a fearsome monster of destruction. Will Championship Riven Ever come Back? The broken blade has a very interesting, ornamented design but when complete it surely stands out from the norm with its blunt end. Still, it manages to stand apart from her other skins with a regal, armoured style. Championship Riven is better in that regard.
The models have specific styles and so do the particles; which enable the skins to feel unique. Viewers who physically attended the finals and bought tickets received championship riven with their ticket purchase which they could redeem later. Something similar happens to her arms but her left one makes sensible use of the effect to display distance. The new model is quite good for an armoured ninja but the overall result is too straightforward. Vintage Championship Riven has a crown on her head and a new glow on the sword when Blade of the Exile is active. Are the results always convincing and attractive? New blue glow for Kalista and her spears. Nevertheless, the design is sleek and stands out with appeal.
Unlike them the result fails at being more than the sum of its parts. Besides abundant vapours, the shading seems a tad too saturated and homogeneous despite being effective. Thresh strikes a dynamic pose but that also prevents a good look at his appearance. There are some dents here and there, to add some depth, but the portrayal is straightforward and too centred on his lantern. Championship Riven 2016 vs Legacy In 2016 Riot celebrated the release of the new Championship Zed skin by making the Championship bundle. The only thing that disrupts the monotony is the souls attacking soldiers.
Shyvana stands in direct contrast in a vivid and eye-catching depiction.

The Championship Riven 2016 skin allows players who don't own the original to buy an almost identical version from the store. New blue flames for her gauntlet and dragon maw. Splash Art: The background is three things: diffuse, straightforward and a complement to the foreground. After the finals the skin became available for all players to purchase in the store from the 14th - 22nd October before it was removed.
