The Black Mist is here. Featuring seats inspired by Viego, Miss Fortune and Pyke, the Secretlab League of Legends Ruination Collection pays homage to the Ruined King himself and the most iconic defenders of Bilgewater.

London, UK – July 23, 2021 — International gaming seat specialist Secretlab is teaming up again with Riot Games on another collection of designer seats for League of Legends fans. Created specially for fans who love the rich lore of League of Legends, the Secretlab League of Legends Ruination Collection drops as Viego, The Ruined King, and the sinister Black Mist threaten to consume Runeterra.

With an enduring legacy built up over a decade, League of Legends is a global phenomenon that has far surpassed its status as the world’s most-watched esport. With music videos, comic books, short stories and the upcoming Netflix animated series Arcane, the world of Runeterra is continuing to expand and evolve over different media and across platforms to reach and excite players.

The Secretlab League of Legends Ruination Collection marks the latest chapter in the League of Legends universe, allowing players to step into the shoes of Viego, Miss Fortune and Pyke and immerse themselves in one of the darkest chapters of Runeterra’s history.

Secretlab worked closely with designers at Riot Games to combine the distinctive aesthetic of Viego, Miss Fortune and Pyke with the advancements of the brand new Secretlab 2022 Series. Upholstered in the new and upgraded Secretlab NEOTM Hybrid Leatherette, the Secretlab League of Legends Ruination Collection1 draws on unique elements from each champion’s armor, abilities and lore, bringing them to life with intricate embroidered details.

Secretlab League of Legends Viego Edition

The Secretlab League of Legends Viego Edition chair is inspired by one of the most formidable figures in Runeterra. With Viego’s arrival, you’ll be able to command the Black Mist to wreak havoc on your enemies. Wield the full power of the Blade of the Ruined King, embroidered on the backrest — it’ll let you show your opponents who truly reigns sovereign.

Secretlab League of Legends Miss Fortune Edition

Inspired by the famed Bilgewater captain, the Secretlab League of Legends Miss Fortune Edition pays homage to Sarah Fortune’s notoriety as a bounty hunter. Featuring her iconic pistols and upholstered in deep red leatherette, it is the perfect fit for the marksman looking to comfortably decimate their foes in a rain of bullets.

Secretlab League of Legends Pyke Edition

Taking inspiration from the depths of the ocean and the Bloodharbor Ripper himself, the Secretlab League of Legends Pyke Edition features the distinctive scales of a jaull-fish on its side wings. Skewer your opponents and execute them with your ultimate — they’ll never see it coming.

Said Ian Ang, co-founder and CEO of Secretlab:

“We’ve worked closely with Riot Games over the years to keep both pro players and fans comfortable, supporting the biggest regional leagues, global tournaments and each major milestone in the League of Legends universe with custom-designed seats. This meant we couldn’t go without creating chairs to mark the arrival of Viego and the Black Mist. Our designers enjoyed every moment spent immersing themselves in League of Legends’ rich lore once again to perfect even the smallest design elements and ensure our chairs faithfully recreate the spirit and aesthetic of their respective champions.”

Said Ryan Cosby, VP Marketing, Riot Entertainment:

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Secretlab. They have been a fantastic collaborator when it comes to celebrating major events in the League of Legends universe, helping to enhance the player experience and providing opportunities for personalized fandom. We can’t wait to see our community across the globe react to this summer’s new Ruination collection and experience this latest chapter of Runeterra both in and out of the game.”

From chairs designed for global tournaments like the League of Legends World Championship and Mid-Season Invitational to collections inspired by the champions of Ionia, and virtual girl group K/DA and their chart-topping hits, Secretlab and Riot Games have worked together to delight fans at a variety of major milestone for League of Legends. Backed by years of research into performance ergonomics, Secretlab chairs have kept both the world’s best players and millions of League of Legends players around the globe comfortable with their award-winning seats.
