League of Legends’ newest champion Aphelios has a few tricks up his sleeve and some complex moves to master. Developer Riot introduced him as “a champion with one of the highest skill ceilings in the game.” It looks like that complexity is reflected in the time it took to create him – Riot has said it took more than a year. As spotted by The Loadout, Riot has said in a blog post the journey of League of Legends’ Aphelios – otherwise known as ‘The Big Brain, Sad Moon Boi’ – “from early concept to creation was a long one. Well over a year, in fact.” Given Aphelios’ playstyle, however, it’s perhaps not too surprising that the mystical marksman took a while to develop. The champion uses five weapons, and three buttons – Q, W, and R – using W to swap between his main and off-hand weapons. He cycles through the weapons, which each have their own Q ability, as ammo drains, rather than just selecting them. His setup is significantly different to the game’s near 150 champions, which means that he even gets his own custom HUD.
