So A New Champion Has Come Out and Riot Is doing a better and better Job of Promoting the Hype for new Characters unveiling a new CG Cutscene as well as a preview of his abilities too keep our arms and legs safely aboard the hype train. So what is in store for league of legends. . . only time will tell. ^i'll try to keep the time puns to a minimum but tbh I really can't help it First I'll Give My Thoughts on the Animation that they have released Here is a Link to It If you haven't Seen It Yet The cel shaded art style they decided to go with reminds me of the way the walking dead/ boarderlands was done with strong inking lines its a good style imo. It seems like they compositied traditionally 2d animated smoke and particle effects which gives a great over the top anime feel to it. Riot Continues to amaze me with the large amount of skill and talent they have making their CG cut-scenes and as always they do an amazing job of making the champions we know and love. . . or get to know come to life. This short combines fantastic pacing, art style, and sound design while focusing on what makes this champion unique. There Has Been Speculation That Vi, Jinx, and Ekko were all part of the same Gang and this could be where their hangout was the blue haired girl on this Wall Resembles Jinx. Who Ekko Had a Crush On The beginning of the video starts off showing a wall of memories/graffiti with Ekko giving a monologue about time which is his unique game play dynamic. . . When he talks about wanting more time as in days, months, and years it really showcases how much actual time, no pun intended, was put into his character design, because to me everything Ekko says in the introduction, helped by fantastic voice-acting, really carries a deeper meaning. He eventually talks about seconds which is the title of the short and holds a big emphasis both in the video and in league of legends where in high level play seconds are sometimes the deciding factor in team-fights. A Battle Of Strength Vs. Speed, Agility, and Wits The fight in the short showcases both Ekko's nimble, scrappy, and smart fighting/play style, but his ultimate as well which might be the coolest part about the character. Ekko smartly picks apart at this excuse my language "mechanized bane looking mother fucker" by cutting at his opponents weaknesses while at the same time using his rewind feature every time he ends up injured due to making a mistake. It's important to highlight that in game and in the video he is only partially healed for the damage he takes in fights. At the end we see into more of who Ekko is, because although he lives in Zaun he's not much of a punk as he rewinds time to preserve the wall . . . perhaps the wall is not only a physical representation of Ekko but a symbol to the time he has been alive and his memories as well. "Yuh Dun Fucked it Up"- Angry Joe Once Again Ekko says something deep to wrap up the video "if you can't make the most out of any given moment. . . you don't deserve an extra scond". . . which is true in everyday life and is something I'm trying to live by because you never know what day might be your last. Now onto the in game preview and leaked PBE info I've gathered I'll start of With the Character Design Being A Fan Of Mohawks, and Having One Myself Ekko Gets Bonus Points In My book Ekko's visual design reminds me a lot of the bastion and transistor series and shares the same designer who created Jinx, Gnar, and Vi. His unique hair style and some what cyberpunk/steampunk design really matches his character's attitude,his pride for Zaun, and his disgust with authority and Piltover. Riot did a great job of making sure even his reveal page tell's you something about the character Being one of the newer champions in the league there is a lot of lore which Ekko must fit into and they do a better job than most champions making sure that he fits into the established world for instance this character is so detailed that his idle animations, particle effects, and even his interactions with other champions have allusions to the in game lore. . . He the most well voice acted lines I've seen in a champion yet and makes me hope riot will update some of the older . . . and not that old champions to have to have the same amount of voice acted lines. I mean his taunts are actually taunts making fun of certain champions. . . and similar to jinx has special interactions with piltover and zaun champions. Ekko has something to say about everything and is the first champion that I'm aware of that says things when buying certain items the attention to detail astounds me. Ekko's Dance Actually Has Him Emulating Guitar Noises Ekko's personality is that of a young punk rock loving adult who is rebelling against society and vies for individualism . . . while he dislikes authority and society and razes hell every now and then he doesn't seem evil like the likes of urgot and some of the other notorious Zaunites its seems he is more of an anti-hero. Which makes me really like him. . . because I'm a weird person who likes back stories and lore in even MOBA games. Mind You these are speculations and opinions of what Ekko Could be like and I will Make another article after fiddling with him Shifting onto the game play aspect. . . Ekko is a melee ranged AP Utility Assassin who makes use of both his passive slow and speed boost in combination with his active slows. . . stuns basic attacks and spells in order to make an impact in fights. Ekko's Passive, Z-Drive Resonance, is similar to Gnar's W Passive, but ekkos passive slows as well, this utility can be used offensively to stick to targets or defensively to peel back keep in mind that Ekko's damaging spells proc this so all it takes is 1 spell rotation to proc it without auto attacks Ekko's Q , Timewinder, will be the standard bread and butter for harassing enemies similar to Ahri this skillshot does more damage on its return trip. . . while reading the Ekko design notes they said that before he could chose when the q came back which is sad to hear because I would have enjoyed that mechanic Ekko's W Parallel Convergence has a strong passive effect which makes it dangerous to stay around ekko when having low health and the active packs monsterous range and an aoe slow/stun that also give ekko a Big shield. . . characters with shields make some nasty outplays. . . that is some riven level shielding with the large ap ratio what ekko is going to be building anyways Ekko's E is a combination of both a dash and a blink that deals bonus damage and obviously since its an auto proc on hit effects if ekko builds enough cdr he could be a tough man to get away from or to catch because It is possible to auto attack minions and jungle creeps with the empowered auto Ekko's R is what is going to make or break most players. . . the heal, untargetability and damage are great and have good scaling but a well timed ultimate could catch enemies of guard if he ults into a parallel convergence stunning the enemies inside What I'm interested in seeing is where Ekko is capable of going and what builds he is capable of pulling of successfully. I'd like to try him in all lanes and in the jungle and try him with different builds AP bruiser, tanky, glass cannon, hybrid builds perhaps? You never know. . . they built fizz ad time will tell. . . How would you build Ekko?? Leave Your Comments Below Image Taken From http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Ekko http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/page/champion-reveal/ekko-boy-who-shattered-time
