But, the Hextech dragon – along with the Hexgate portals that define the unique Dragon Soul still remain in the game.
A clip posted on February 14 by League of Legends player SSBM_DangGan went viral and made its way to the top of the LoL subreddit – and for a good reason.
In the short clip, the SSBM_DangGan completely outplays the enemy team. The player placed Xayah’s ultimate in the drake pit, and then quickly took the new Hextech gates to travel across the other side of the river.
Before you know, SSBM_DangGan recalls the Xayah’s ultimate which completely obliterated their opponent, which definitely left them puzzled as to what happened.
With over 8.5k upvotes, the League of Legends absolutely loved the clip, and many fans took to the comments to praise the player for their impressive skills.
“That was so dumb, I love it,” commented one player. Others praised how smart it was to try and pull this trick off: “I don’t have enough IQ to view this content,” another said.
“That wasn’t even needed,” said npri0r. “You just wanted to expend everything to utterly style on them and break their mental. Nice. And it was so satisfying too.”
With Riot Games continuously shaking up League of Legends year after year, the skill ceiling continues to get higher with more opportunities for outplays like this possible.
