UPDATE: Kindred has been delayed! In a post on the forums Riot Iniquitee, Associate Product Manager announced the unfortunate news:


"Hey folks,


Despite being in the 5.19 patch notes and just having their champion spotlight released, I have to share the very sad news that Kindred will not be enabled until 5.20.


We found an important, gameplay-impacting issue that we can't release, specifically related to Kindred. Rather than rush a fix out the door, we are going to take due diligence to maintain the integrity of the game and release Kindred (all fixed up) next patch, once it has had adequate coverage. Until that time I hope Worlds can sustain your hype train. We really can't wait to get this champ in your hands and see what you can do with them. They are (still) coming!"




Riot has revealed a new champion Kindred, the Eternal Hunters


This duo functions as a single marksman, meant to roam the jungle and surprise laners with their high damage ganks.

"We’re almost ready to breathe life into League’s next champion, a marksman designed for a life in the jungle. Kindred prowls through camps, marking enemy champions for death and permanently growing in strength if they’re able to carry out the promised sentence. But just as Kindred brings death, so can they delay it. Should their allies meet deadly force, Lamb - one of Kindred’s two spirits - can create a large blessed zone that, for a few valuable seconds, denies the ever-creeping and inevitable clutches of death."









Passive: Mark of the Kindred

Lamb marks an enemy champion - anywhere on the map - for death. After a delay, the mark activates - if Kindred kills them, or assists in their death, they gains a permanent stackable bonus to their basic attacks. In addition to Lamb choosing an enemy champion for the Mark of the Kindred, Wolf automatically hungers for large enemy jungle monsters from time to time. All champions can see targets that are marked for death.



Q: Dance of Arrows

 Kindred dashes in a target direction before firing at up to three nearby enemies.

W: Wolf's Frenzy

  • Passive: Kindred builds stacks of Hunter’s Vigor as they move around. Once fully stacked, Kindred’s next basic attack steals a flat amount of health.
  • Active: Wolf temporarily splits from Lamb, creating a large spirit zone around him and attacking whoever Lamb attacks, or his closest enemy. Lamb can cast Dance of Arrows with a greatly reduced cooldown while inside Wolf's Frenzy.



E: Mounting Dread

Kindred initially slows a targeted enemy. If they’re then able to attack their crippled target three times in quick succession, the target suffers a burst of percent max health damage.



R: Lamb's Respite

Kindred creates a large but temporary zone beneath itself or a targeted ally. While active, Lamb's Respite prevents ALL units within its boundaries from dropping below critical levels of health. Finally, Lamb's Respite applies a flat heal to all champions still inside as it ends.

  • While playing on the blue side of the map teams are currently 16-8.
  • Cloud9 took down ahq e-Sports Club in 23:53, one of the fastest matches of the year.
  • Though it was assisted, Ryu scored his revenge by killing Faker first.
  • EDward Gaming looked to defeat the Bangkok Titans in even less time than C9 over AHQ, but BKT surrendered.
  • Riot itself paused the CLG - Flash Wolves match to inform CLG of a visual bug hiding a ward from true sight. This sets a good precedent for the rest of the tournament.
  • Day 2 was full of upsets including Flash Wolves over the #2 team from China and Origen (#3 of Europe) over China's first seed.
  • China as a whole has failed to show up so far this year, very surprising considering many had them pegged as the deepest region in the world.
  • Balls scored the first pentakill of the year as Darius against Fnatic.
  • The only undefeated teams remaining are SK Telecom T1, Cloud9, and Origen.

Big matches include Fnatic vs. Invictus Gaming, which should give us a preview as to who might come out of the group on top and Cloud9 vs. AHQ, as one of these two might have a shot at stealing second place in their group.


The rest of the schedule can be found on the LoL Esports webpage. Action concludes on Sunday, October 11 at which point the top two teams in each region will advance and be sorted into the Bracket Stage.


For our thoughts on all sixteen teams, check out our news post. If a preview of each group is more of your thing, we also have that.
