As the 2020 League of Legends Worlds Championship inches closer, Riot is teasing some new content for the upcoming ranked season. The next Victorious skin has caught the eyes of plenty of fans, but no one knows exactly which champion is set to carry it.
The Tawainese League of Legends page has released some images teasing some details of the new Victorious skin. The first picture teased featured a gold chest plate with detailed design on some armor. While it's pretty hard to tell who's the champion wearing it, some might guess it may be Garen. The following photo features a hand holding a crystalized gun, which may foretell that the champion is Lucian. He's not the only champion in the game to wield a gun, since you have Jhin.

Towards the end of the season, the top-pick champions in pro play usually receive a Victorious skin. Lucian has had a pretty high presence in professional play, such as a 36.2% pick rate in the 2020 Spring Split. He's also been used in mid lane and bot lane, and can be a game-changing champion in pro play once he scales up. Being one of the most popular champions this year can mean that he may be the winner for this year's Victorious skin.
What are Victorious skins and how do I get them?
In 2019, Riot gave the Victorious skin to Aatrox. In previous years, Jarvan IV, Janna, Elise, Morgana, Sivir, Maokai, Graves, and Orianna all received this Legendary skin.
Owning a Victorious skin is a rarity, as these skins are only available to players who rank Gold or higher in League of Legends, and are presented as end-of-season rewards

In order to be eligible for one, you must achieve Gold in any one of the following Ranked queues:
- Ranked Solo/Duo Queue
- 3 vs. 3 Ranked
- 5 vs. 5 Ranked
You must also be an honorable player, meaning that you've had no suspensions in the past.

These skins hold plenty of value since they're one-time exclusives and only available at the end of each Ranked season. Owning one of these skins shows off your skills as well as your sportsmanship.
There's no word as to who will be the next Victorious champion but stay tuned to Ginx Esports TV as we'll keep you updated.
