Esports News – Many will think that it was long overdue but Riot Games has finally announced the newest addition to League of Legends’ list of champions: Pyke, The Bloodharbor Ripper. Get ready to cross names off his death list and start counting down for the next patch update.
“Let the water drag you under. There’s plenty of room for everyone at the bottom of the sea.”
On a teaser Youtube video posted by Riot Games for LoL Patch 8.11, it seems like Pyke will be one of the aggressive support champions that we might soon see in LoL tournaments. Deep down a dark past reveal, Pyke was murdered by a ship crew he believed betrayed him. As a result, his character was driven by the thirst for revenge. He now stays in the Slaughter Docks as an undead to cross names off his death list.
As Pyke, you’ll be getting inside the head of a serial murderer. You’ll can basically kill, cripple, and torture all enemy champions coming your way. Pyke loves to kill so you need to quench his thirst all throughout the game and help him finish the homicides. Injuring opponents by trading and poking while dragging the victim underwater is one of the best techniques to maximize Pyke’s abilities. Before killing, capturing and stabbing the targets need to be done to hit them close to home. Not finishing a kill can cost Pyke a portion of his life since his mobility affects his viability. Therefore, as Pyke, be sure to always get the job done.
When Pyke is hidden from enemies, he can swiftly use the Gifts of the Drowned Ones and regenerate some of the health lost to enemy champions—like some sort of self-healing. On top of that, he can also convert his bonus health into bonus attack damage when necessary.
Following Pyke’s lore and aquatic theme, he uses harpoons, blades, and fishing rods as weapons to execute the following:
Ghostwater Dive – Pyke’s ability to dive into the water while in camouflage. Underwater, he gains a large movement increase for a few seconds. Champions who attack or cast spells at him can immediately end the camouflage.
Bone Skewer – Pyke’s ability and probably willingness to butcher multiple enemies at a point-blank range. He can stab and impale all enemies near him by throwing his harpoon.
Phantom Undertow – Pyke’s ability to leave opponents paralyzed with fear to help his team rush into the enemy’s’ lair. He leaves a drowned phantom behind to make the scare tactic effective.
Death from Below – The deadliest of Pyke’s abilities. He can blink to champions kill enemies in an X-shaped area. All the champions killed by Death from Below will lose their full kill gold to Pyke and his last ally.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
