Gamescom 2012 came and went with no information on Supremacy, but with League of Legends Season 3 fast approaching, could we finally see Supremacy unveiled?
Back in August, CEO and Co-Founder of Riot Games Brandon Beck talked to Forbes.com about League of Legends Season 3, cash and prizes, broadcasts, the creation of a new international pro league called “League of Legends Championship Series”, and Thunderdome.
Missing from the interview was any mention of Supremacy. John Gaudiosi, the Forbes journalist who interviewed Beck, didn’t ask the “Supremacy” question.
While the Forbes interview provided no details on Supremacy, the interview was published at the same time Riot Games announced the League of Legends Championship Series.
A video that went along with the announcement promised, “SEASON 3 WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING”, as shown in the screenshot below.
Does “WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING” mean we can possibly expect Supremacy?
Season 3 even has one LoL Community forum member asking the question, “At Season 2 we got Dominion , At Season 3 we get ?“
Another member, IkarusX, replied with:
Nah, i don’t think they will make ARAM official with a queue. The custom games work.
Think they will drop something completely different to suprise everyone.
What is possible: Riot registered some URLs months ago and there is still no information about it.
Called : “League of Legends: Supremacy”
I’m excited what this can be.
Of course, it’s just speculation until Riot Games officially announces its launch.
After the Season Two World Champions are crowned in Los Angeles on October 13, 2012, Riot Games has told fans more details about “League of Legends Championship Series” and Season 3 will be announced.
Here’s a recap of the “League of Legends Championship Series” taken from the Riot announcement.
- The League of Legends Championship Series: the top eight teams from the US and EU, plus top teams from the Asian regions
- The top three teams from Gamescom and PAX immediately qualify
- Weekly regional pro League of Legends matches live, for free, in HD
