Samsung Galaxy walked away with the Summoner’s Cup and the greatest redemption in League of Legends history this weekend. As part of that victory, the team will be given a series of champion skins. And it looks like the players have already chosen their Worlds skins, according to an interview conducted by PentaQ Esports.

The interview was conducted in Korean, but a Twitter user translated it shortly after for English speakers. According to the translation, all of the players have chosen their skins with the exception of Kang “Ambition” Chan-yong.

  • Lee “CuVee” Seong-jin: Gnar
  • Lee “Crown” Min-ho: Taliyah
  • Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk: Xayah
  • Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in: Rakan

Among those choices, only Ruler’s Xayah and CuVee’s Gnar were played by SSG in the Finals at Worlds. Taliyah, however, has been one of Crown’s most popular champions since the start of the 2017 Summer Split, and CoreJJ played Rakan a few times over the course of the World Championship.

If true, this would mean Xayah and Rakan would get their first skins since release, and it would be another matching skin set just like their Cosmic skins.

SK Telecom T1’s 2016 Worlds skins weren’t released until July, nearly eight months after they claimed the crown on the Worlds stage that year. Assuming SSG’s skins follow the same schedule, it could be a while before we actually see the skins in action.
