After announcing Gangplank’s death in the Bilgewater: Burning Tides event at the hands on Miss Sarah Fortune, the studio has announced him oh-not-so-dead.
The studio had to face a lot of criticism from the players who spent real money to buy the champion and his skins and were not provided with a refund.
Gangplank has also been updated so that his current Classic Skin is now called as Captain Gangplank. The skin is free to anyone who plays the said champion in a matchmaking game mode before Aug.10, 2015.
Bilgewater: Burning Tides sails away on August 10 at 10:00 BST. You can earn the free Captain Gangplank skin if you own the champion and play a full matchmade game with him (or if you’ve already played at least one) before the event ends.
In addition to this, the studio has also provided a lengthy update detailing all his revamped abilities and more. You will still be able to use ‘W’ to break any snares and slow down effects, but ‘E’ will no longer provide you and your nearby teammates with a speed boost. Instead of it, ‘E’ now drops barrels on the field which when shot; slow down enemies in the area.
Finally, you will be able to see Gangplank returning to the rift with update v.5.15. For more information; head over to the post!
