All The Initial Characters Leaked For Project L

From the recent survey from Riot, some of the characters that would be released with Project: L have been leaked.

In late 2019, Riot Games released their 10th-anniversary video, announcing a slew of new games. The most well-known was Project: A, which was later officially named VALORANT. The other game that received a lot of attention was Project: L.

Project: L is a fighting game set in the League of Legends universe, also known as Runeterra. It’s a tag team fighting game, similar to Marvel VS Capcom and Dragon Ball FighterZ, similar to MVC and Dragon Ball FighterZ. But unlike Dragon Ball FighterZ, it’s a 2v2 instead of building a team of 3’s and being able to play 3v3.

As every fighting game needs a unique selection of characters to play with, Project: L won’t be an exception.

Recently, Riot posted a survey. In that survey, they listed various champions, asking questions such as, “What is the most iconic part of this champion?” and “How likely are you interested in playing with this champion in other games?”.

As it is an official Riot survey and the questions are very specific, we can guess that these champions are probably the starting roster of Project: L.

Some Possible Classes For Champions Of Project L

Every fighting game needs a diverse selection of characters to play with. Moreover, every fighting game characters also have its archetypes. Some popular archetypes include all-rounders, zoners, grapplers, rushdowns, charge, etc.

All-rounders are characters who have simple combos, yet they are still very formidable. Some of them might also include projectile moves as well. Some of the best examples of all-rounder characters are Goku, Gohan (Adult), and Goku Black from FighterZ.

From the survey list, Rengar and Riven are the best candidates for all-rounder characters.

Rushdown characters, on the other hand, have high mobility and excellent combo potential, but they lack range. Some well-known rushdown characters are Yamcha from FighterZ and Shiki from Melty Blood.

Ekko is confirmed to be a rushdown champion from the reveal, as his new time mechanic will allow him to extend his combo even further.

Zoners are characters who can control the entire stage by primarily using projectiles. While they might be very annoying to deal with, they often are very frail and have less health than their peers. Android 21 from FighterZ is a prime example of a Zoner.

From the confirmed champion list, Jinx is designed to be a zoner.

Grapplers are the most fundamental yet the most broken characters if not adjusted correctly. Even though they might lack speed and range, they make up for it by having a high health pool and significant damage. They also can grab an opponent and deal a high sum of damage. Some recognizable grapplers are Broly (Both Z and DBS) from FighterZ and Kouma from Melty Blood.

From the Project: L reveal video, we can confirm that Darius will be a grappler champion

As all of the listed champions are extremely diverse, we can safely say that they will be starting the roster for Project: L.
