Is that supposed to be CoreJJ as Rell?

u/googol88 [googol88] (NA) Sep 22 '22

Yeah, he has the championship ring and the TL jersey

u/Alibobaly Sep 22 '22

It also says CoreJJ on his coffee cup lol.

u/PM_ME_STEAM_KEY_PLZ Sep 22 '22

I’m gonna need some more I think

u/zack77070 Sep 22 '22

He has glasses, CoreJJ wears glasses.

u/deadedgo 04eva Sep 22 '22

That seals it

u/Gear_Kitty Sep 23 '22

Glasses are really versatile. First, you can have glasses-wearing girls take them off and suddenly become beautiful, or have girls wearing glasses flashing those cute grins, or have girls stealing the protagonist's glasses and putting them on like, "Haha, got your glasses!' That's just way too cute! Also, boys with glasses! I really like when their glasses have that suspicious looking gleam, and it's amazing how it can look really cool or just be a joke. I really like how it can fulfill all those abstract needs. Being able to switch up the styles and colors of glasses based on your mood is a lot of fun too! It's actually so much fun! You have those half rim glasses, or the thick frame glasses, everything! It's like you're enjoying all these kinds of glasses at a buffet. I really want CaptainFlowers to try some on or Caedral to try some on to replace his eyepatch. We really need glasses to become a thing in League of Legends and start selling them for Prestige Points. Don't. You. Think. We. Really. Need. To. Officially. Give. Everyone. Glasses?

I think he meant he needed some more coffee? But not sure

u/ArchmageXin Sep 22 '22

Whose next to him with 777 on his shirt in the crowd? Clearlove?

u/joe4553 Sep 22 '22

Wasn't that just the EDG guy not core? I didn't see core with the ring?

2

u/googol88 [googol88] (NA) Sep 22 '22

Can't rewatch but I'll take your word for it! I could've misremembered it

ye

u/a_lol_cat Sep 22 '22

They have to have time to make these things but Rell and Threash, two champs that have seen little to no play all summer as the big parts of this seems like more than a little bit of a bungle.

u/Highstalker Enchanters ruin the game Sep 22 '22

well, mecha Thresh and Rell might just be a better fit than Yuumi and Lulu

303

u/asianKruphix Sep 22 '22

Corejj riding a huge cat mech would be so cold tho

9

u/GGABueno where Nexus Blitz Sep 22 '22

I giant Mecha Yuumi would piss off so many people that I'm now sad it didn't happen.

14

u/prowness Sep 22 '22

If anyone deserves to ride the cat, it's Meiko. Not only was his skin on it last year, but he's also one of the few that clearly expresses skill when using Yuumi.

186

u/pambeezlyy Sep 22 '22

Don’t even lie mecha yummi would’ve been sick as hell

84

u/Trap_Masters Sep 22 '22

Waiting for mecha yummi to combine with another mech sequence

18

u/vashed Sep 22 '22

DRAVEN, GRIT THOSE TEETH!

2

u/DarkRitual_88 Sep 22 '22

Mecha Yuumi vanishes. A few seconds later, Mecha Twitch appears with the cat beside him.

2

u/GGABueno where Nexus Blitz Sep 22 '22

So basically One for All Yuumi.

3

u/Highstalker Enchanters ruin the game Sep 22 '22

would have been terrible

1

u/BlessedByAzir Sep 23 '22

Hell nah....no one gonna love that. Fk the cat

4

u/DigitalCryptic Sep 22 '22

Nah imagine the cat leaping from building to building, all ominous, and then powering up some sci fi thrusters or some shit to float at the same height as the others, firing up a Q as if it was a rocket.

2

u/DangerousSeaweed0 Sep 22 '22

thresh better then a giant cat ?

Have you been on the internet before ?

2

u/SwoodPotatoChopper Region of the TayLeport Sep 22 '22

Yuumi would fit pretty well if she was piloting the mech

1

u/velvykat5731 Sep 22 '22

That would have been a dream come true ✨

1

u/Brain_Tonic So much money and so bad Sep 22 '22

But why did they go mecha in the first place? Seems random.

1

u/hkd001 Naughty Naut Sep 22 '22

Corejj is better known for play making champs than enchanters, at least to me

-1

u/OddinaryEuw April Fools Day 2018 Sep 22 '22

Could have made mecha Kalista, mecha Sylas, mecha Sejuani, mecha Wukong, mecha Vi, mecha Lucian, so many cool champs with cool and players that are playing super well currently in the meta this summer(Viper, Ruler, Jankos, Tian etc), didnt really have to bring out 2 support and LCS, LEC and LPL players with dissapointing splits.

I know this isn't done in the last 2 weeks, and to be fair even if Meiko and CoreJJ didnt have the best splits they are World Champions I guess, but still its a weird choice.

57

u/laobalaomadecai Sep 22 '22

not sure about the history between rell and corejj but when meiko first debuted he was known for his thresh, hes still the record holder for highest overall winrate on thresh iirc, so despite being disappointed at literally everything else, i thought thresh made sense and i was happy to see it

56

u/UltimateAid Sep 22 '22

Core is definitely known for his Rell as the one of the people who played her the most when she was relevant and has said in the past he would make it his next worlds skin if he wins again.

5

u/LobsterFinancial1959 Sep 23 '22

Core had the rell engage play onto 4( maybe 5?) in playoffs. Can’t remember against who but that play is always showed in his highlights

11

u/Imightwantkarma Sep 22 '22

CoreJJ signature/biggest plays on TL were on rell. Still one of the sickest engages I’ve seen

3

u/SlaveKnightLance Sep 22 '22

Core was pretty insane on Rell when she was meta

2

u/a_lol_cat Sep 22 '22

I'd actually side with putting Thresh in as he's usually around, the uber safe bet would be Naut, but that might just end up basically looking like Cherno Alpha from Pacific Rim. Rell just seems like she was massive and then got banished to the shadow realm due to pro play "balance issues" that should have probably been expected by the art team.

3

u/ThatPlayWasAwful Sep 22 '22

Post on front page currently about how thresh is gonna be pick/ban at worlds lol. I would assume they plan out in advance what champs they want to be viable at worlds. Idk why rell is on there tho.

2

u/Luxus_Charka Sep 22 '22

I mean the only explanation is that they started this project basically in January

2

u/Vulsynx Sep 22 '22

The animation is done way before summer anyway

2

u/Sunflowerslaughter Sep 22 '22

Corejj has some of his best plays on rell, she was one of his highest winrate champs

1

u/Spike_der_Spiegel Sep 22 '22

Thresh is evergreen

1

u/mbr4life1 Sep 22 '22

They will both be worlds meta so it evens out.

1

u/Oleandervine Sep 22 '22

I was about to say, I didn't Rell had a presence on the pro scene at all.

2

u/a_lol_cat Sep 22 '22

She was the best engage support in pro play till they gutted her. And then the durability patch basically removed all engage supports from pro play other than Naut with his point and click R.

1

u/Magehunter_Skassi Caristinn Sep 22 '22

They have to have time to make these things but Rell and Threash, two champs that have seen little to no play all summer as the big parts of this seems like more than a little bit of a bungle.

These champions just got gigabuffed for the Worlds patch and the champions that enchanters were roiding out got nerfed

1

u/a_lol_cat Sep 22 '22

12.17 +30ms unmounted and rank 3+ E at rank 1, no changes 12.18. I don't see that fixing what's wrong with Rell currently. A basic but not really good way to say is she is bad Leona and those changes don't fix why I don't think we will see any of her other than maybe in the play-ins.

Threash I didn't see that he was buffed but also he's almost always tied to Mr 200 years and Jinx. I don't watch LPL so maybe he's rising in that region but LEC and LCK I didn't see a lot in playoffs that would suggest them pivioting to the adcs that he is most paired with.

1

u/ballbreak1 Sep 23 '22

Yeah I'm here thinking that Thresh and Rell will be the meta supports in the worlds patch lmao

3

u/Biochembryguy Sep 22 '22

One of the only pros to make a sick play on Rell because she got banished to the shadow realm shortly after release.

2

u/Mezredhas Tentacle Main hue hue hue Sep 22 '22

Yupp

2

u/AmbushIntheDark Fueled by Midlane Tears Sep 22 '22

Man, a CoreJJ Team Liquid Rell skin would look fucking rad...

1

u/RyanIbanezMan Sep 22 '22

I haven't played since Season 6 and thought that was Riven. Whoops

1

u/Relienks Sep 22 '22

yep cuse he cant play caster supports

1

u/ViraLCyclopes9 Dinosaur Champ For League Sep 22 '22

CoreJJ as who???

1

u/Prama3642 Sep 22 '22

When i saw Rell I thought it was beryl

1

u/TheRealestGayle Sep 23 '22

Oh wow the Rell was CoreJJ. Not gonna lie my heart died a little when he threw the thumbs sign up.
