Season Kickoff 2023 Event Emotes
SkinSpotlights showed us some of the emotes coming from the Season Kickoff 2023 Event. The entire list looks incomplete as there are no VCS emotes, LJL has only 1, PCS has 2, and LLA only has 4. So, hopefully, we will get the full list soon.
As there are different leagues involved, each player on the winning team got to personalize an emote. Here are all the emotes that SkinSpotlights have revealed.
These are the LCK emotes, and they are as follows from left to right (names are not fixed and not announced):
- Renekton Emote (BRO Morgan)
- Gragas Emote (KT Cuzz)
- Alpaca Emote (GEN Chovy)
- Foxy Emote (DK Deft)
- Rakan Emote (NS Peter)
It seems Chovy and Deft decided to do Emotes for each other as the Alpaca makes it in. Meanwhile, Morgan got to put his most played champion in Renekton into the game. All the emotes look nice, and the Alpaca one will be the most popular.
LPL Players selected the following emotes as rewards for Season Kickoff 2023 from left to right (names not confirmed):
- No You Don’t (WBG TheShy)
- Take That (NIP XLB)
- That’s It (BLG Yagao)
- Miss Me (TES JackeyLove)
- Check That Out (IG Wink)
It is like TheShy to put such an emote into the game, as he embodies that aggressive playstyle. The Lee Sin one is quite nice, while the Draven emote is very much in line with JackeyLove’s main. These are some nice emote selections, and players would definitely want them.
Winners have chosen their emotes from the LEC as here are the five they personalized:
- In For A Shock (FNC Rekkles)
- My Job is Done (KOI Trymbi)
- Boba Break (SK Exakick)
- Take That L (TH Evi)
- Not This Time (AST Finn)
These emotes are probably some of the better ones on the list. Especially the Ziggs one, which seems like the perfect time to use when you outplay your opponent and just walk away. They are definitely some of my favorites out of all of them.
Here are all the LCS emotes from left to right.
- Riven Emote (IMT Revenge)
- Bee For Real (FLY Spica)
- Pawdon Me (EG Jojopyun)
- Crab9 (C9 Berserker)
- Gimme Dat (100T Busio)
All of these are pretty personalized in a way. Pawdon Me looks pretty nice, while Blabber has been immortalized in the game with the Crab9 emote. A good selection of emotes worth earning and getting.
Only one emote for the LJL has been revealed, and here it is as follows.
This emote is called Nice Try, and it’s hard to say whether DFM Yutapon or DFM Aria got this emote. It’s a neat emote and looks pretty nice.
Four LLA emotes have been revealed, and here they are as follows (from left to right):
- PFFF (ISG Kaze)
- El Toro Draven (R7 Ceo)
- EL Topo (INF Ackerman)
- Zoe Emote (6K Cody)
The Draven one looks neat, while the rest look pretty nice. The exact names are unknown or translated into English yet, but getting them will be pretty nice.
Five emotes have been revealed from the CBLOL players, and here they are as follows (left to right):
- TY Bro (FX Tay)
- Crying Emote (RED Aegis)
- C’mon People (PNG dyNquedo)
- Hulk Huff (KBM DudsTheBoy)
- The Neigh of a Certain Horse (LBR Cavalo)
These are unique in terms of the different images used. Most of them are not champion related, making them excellent additions to expressing emotions during games. Those are great choices by the CBLOL players.
Only two emotes have been released from the PCS. Here they are as follows (from left to right):
- Show Me Your Love (PSG ubao)
- That’s Just Great (PSG Wako)
They look pretty nice and should be good additions to an emote collection.
How to Get These Emotes
It is currently unknown how everyone can earn these rewards, but many can assume that it will be through esports drops. Also, as mentioned earlier, all the season kickoff emotes have not been revealed, as emotes from the VCS are missing, and more are to come from the PCS, LJL, and LLA.
