Glad they posted up about her, I watched a leak vid from early before this was posted and wondered what would happen. It is cool that we now know the next two champs.

sounds like a mix of Zyra's seeds and Orianna's sphere management. Not very original Riot.

does anyone other than me think that this may be Kassadin's daughter?

What I hope she is
The embodiment of destruction. No sad backstory, no ulterior motives, no passion. She comes from the void to crush all existence into a perfect absence. An alien force of unimaginable power, bereft of compassion, pride, or any sort of motivation aside from her goal of bringing everything to an end. She joins the League in order to kill everyone in it.

What she'll probably be
A magical prodigy whose careless attitude caused her to inadvertently open the void, granting her super darkness powers with which she accidentally her whole family. She joins the League to learn to control her powers so that she can make the world a better place.


PS: Her generic ultimate name ranks below "Infinite Light" on the creativity scale. Since you're obviously going for the whole black hole theme, call it something cool and relevant, like "Singularity" or "Quantum Collapse"

She looks simple yet complex at the same time. I look forward to seeing some cool combos using her kit.

It feels like they're trying to milk every ounce of this formula as much as they can before the well runs dry.

actually I would be really exited to be a new player in LoL this year.. over 100 champs to try and learn.. the new aram (and the high chances of a new 5v5 type map for ''soon'') the new arts all the old champ remakes... Way more complet than when I joined... As for syndra.. Look cool but I will choose Rengar (skillset seem more fun to me)

Looks to me like she'll play a lot differently than ori to tell you the truth... it'll be more like playing pool, or a combination of pool and bowling or something... knocking the balls and stuff around, running around, repositioning them for good shots, etc. Actually I know the best analogy... AIR HOCKEY! (even cooler if her orbs bounce off of obstacles like walls... then you can make bank shots...)
