TLDR: As part of our ongoing commitment to keep League of Legends fresh, we often update champions both visually and in their gameplay. If you followed along with the Bilgewater: Burning Tides event, you know that with Gangplank’s champion update, we went even further. Catch up on the story here, or if you’re already a Bilgewater veteran, dive into a conversation between the devs behind the update below!
Gangplank was brought down by the machinations of the bounty hunter Miss Fortune. His ship destroyed with all of Bilgewater watching, killing his crew and shattering his aura of invincibility. Despite receiving horrific injuries in the explosion, Gangplank survived.
We’ve updated Gangplank and Miss Fortune as part of the Bilgewater: Burning Tides event, check out their champion reveal pages to learn more about how and why these classic Bilgewater champions got new coats of paint.
Beauty and danger: There are few who can match Miss Fortune in either. One of Bilgewater's most infamous bounty hunters, she built her legend upon a swathe of bullet-riddled corpses and captured ne’er-do-wells. Now she’s getting some light gameplay tweaks and a small-scope visual update.
We’re giving the dread pirate lord of Bilgewater a gameplay overhaul and a fresh coat of paint in time for the upcoming event. Along with a new kit that adds some powder-ful new interactions between his abilities, we’ve spruced up his bio with a look into the man behind the Saltwater Scourge myth.
