Pyke, the newly-announced League of Legends champion, might have been referenced as many as three years ago. A note in Miss Fortunte's lore update from 2015 might just be a reference to the new support champion.
A Reddit user found a section of Miss Fortune's lore that reads,
Pyke’s shipmates watched him drown. In his eyes, all of Bilgewater is guilty. pic.twitter.com/NeI56pELyp— League of Legends (@LeagueOfLegends) May 10, 2018
This would make sense as Miss Fortune is another member of Bilgewater, and many of the champions from there have ship-like or nautical themes. Perhaps this means we'll see some interesting interactions between the two champions on the Rift. Maybe Pyke will even get a skin with the same theme as Miss Fortune's Gun Goddess skin.
Pyke's supposed aggressive support play style has gotten many excited reactions from fans.
