    Doubt it, unless it includes his VU. Riot has said many times they don't add new Rumble skins because his rig is all fucked up but I'm really hoping for a VU, maybe a little rework and probably a new skin by what this page indicates.

    Its clearly Rumble in the picture. And the picture says Skin Preview. Not sure what else it could be

    I know it's Rumble but I doubt it's a skin (only, at least) cuz they said his rig is fucked up and they needed to update it so it seems counter-intuitive to go put all that effort into making a new skin when they know he needs a VU sometime in the near future.

    So either it's his VU or rework + new skin. They don't usually add these kind of previews for skins unless they're ultimate / legendary skins, right?

    He might be getting the Udyr treatment. Big, new skin that they can base a future rework off of.

    The only person I can see playing Kog in the LCS will be Genja, because Gambit does what Gambit wants. For everyone else, he is still squishy, immobile, and requires a team built around him for protection, which does not work in the current meta.

    It would make sense. This is a skin preview and not a rework/champion preview, which points to a legendary/ultimate skin and not a full rework. Factor in how long people have been asking for a new Rumble skin plus how successful SGU is and it lends further credence to the skin idea. I think Iron Stylus even mentioned it as an option to please the masses until a full rework could be given the necessary resources to complete it.

    EDIT: Also. Heimer just got a visual update and he didn't receive a teaser, but a full announcement page. I don't think any of the VUs so far have had teasers, just announcements.

    Gambit plays a protect the kog comp. By having 4 other threats. Works just fine.

    It works only because someone like Lucian or Sivir can keep the enemy team entertained long enough for the other 4 threats to do work. Kog just explodes.

    I know. They use him as bait. In the meanwhile, Aatrox, Lee Sin, Le Blanc and fed Annie 'support' tear you apart. And for all the flaws Genja may have, his positioning in teamfights is immaculate.

    Noes, what have they done to her! Theyve effectively slashed her jungling potential in half.

    More proof that Riot need to get to the whole map rotation thing. 12.6% win ratio difference (or, you win almost 29% more games) just by lucking into Blueside more than Purpleside isn't really conductive to fair play. It's very slightly better in ranked (10.4% difference or 23.2% better win rate), still pretty terrible.

    Golden data. Right now it lowers MMR rating for red team, so it can be fixed(or already fixed) this way.

    Reading patch notes, that was weird
    I didn't hear what they plan for kass, while he may not be banned as before (or seems, at all with wtf they did to him), that's butchering him
    Buffing annie mage role is not needed at all, she is already strong mage
    Elise nerfed (to the ground baby!) weren't needed
    Thresh got very heavy nerf, now he needs to rush as soon soul pop
    And in the end, the godlike Lee Sin not touched, i see him in 90% of games, now he will be 100%

    8 seconds is still a long time. Calling it a "very heavy" nerf is a bit extreme.

    As for annie, it's only a buff above, what, 300 ap? Before that it's a nerf; one obviously aimed at supp annie, who rarely goes that high. I think I've seen mid annie twice in my ~120 games this season.
