Riot is changing up the skins for the League of Legends World Champions next year with one player receiving a prestige skin according to some reports from Riot. So, this makes us even more curious about the potential champion skins we can receive after this World Championship, right?
DRX have managed to win it all, taking home the prize and thus earning their future League of Legends World Championship skins, which are set to relesase in the second quarter of 2023.
Which Champions Can Get Skins?
First of all let's go over the rules when it comes to skins for champions. So, any champion that has been played by a player on the winning team is allowed. But, the player has to have played in at least two group stage games that mattered for the advancement of the team or they had to participate in at least one knockout stage game.
If a team already has a skin on a specific champion, then Riot can ask the player to change their champion choice. Also, six champions can be chosen for World Championship skins. In 2016 and 2015 SKT T1 had six champion skins made.

Potential DRX World Championship Skins
Going by the criteria mentioned above let's check out the potential skins for each player individually.
Top Lane - Kingen
- Aatrox, Camille, Fiora, Gnar, Gragas, Ornn, Maokai, Sejuani, Sylas
After the League of Legends World Championship finals, Kingen did state that he would want to get an Aatrox skin. After the clinic he put on in the final two games of the tournament we cannot help but agree with him.
Jungle - Pyosik
- Graves, Kindred, Maokai, Poppy, Sejuani, Vi, Viego, Hecarim
This one is a no-brainer. Pyosik started off as a Kindred OTP and his name literally means mark in Korean. Would any champion other than Kindred even be allowed at this point? Of course, the young jungler thought the same thing and has stated that he would make a Kindred the champion for his skin.
Jungle (Sub) - Juhan
- Lee Sin, Maokai
DRX brought a substitute jungler to the event. Juhan only managed to win on Maokai, so this would make sense as a pick for him. He did play three games, winning two of those with Maokai, while his third game was played with Lee Sin, which he lost.
Mid Lane - Zeka
- Ahri, Akali, Azir, Orianna, Galio, Sylas, Yone
Zeka has popped off on both Akali and Sylas, with the latter being his best champion at the tournament. Definitely worth a World Championship skin, right? Either of these champions would make for incredible skins. He has since made a poll on his instagram asking his fans to vote for either Akali or Sylas.
ADC - Deft
- Ashe, Caitlyn, Draven, Ezreal, Kalista, Miss Fortune, Sivir, Tristana, Varus
Deft has played quite a lot of champions. he's known for his Ezreal and Varus, but in the post-game press conference he did explain that he would love to get a Caitlyn skin, another iconic champion of his.
Support - BeryL
- Amumu, Ashe, Braum, Bard, Heimerdinger, Karma, Lulu, Lux, Rell, Renata Glasc, Soraka, Tahm Kench, Yuumi
BeryL has played the most champions at the tournament thus far, able to pick out anything and everything. In 2020 when he won with DAMWON KIA he waifu-fied Leona to look like Saren Sasaki from Princess Connect. This time around he is looking to make Ashe his anime waifu. He has stated that he would like the skin to be inspired by Elysia from Honkai Impact.
Who Will Receive the League of Legends World Championship Prestige Skin?
As previously mentioned, this year one player will also receive a prestige skin of their World Championship champion. Who could receive such honours though? Well, we aren't sure who from the DRX squad will get this skin, but if we have to give it to someone then it should be Deft.
Deft has been a part of the League of Legends sphere for such a long time that either player deserves such an honour. This would be a great skin to cap off such a storied career. Hopefully we see more of Deft in 2023 though. It would be a shame to see DRX disband after such an incredible run at Worlds 2022.
