A post on the popular League of Legends subreddit has apparently revealed the champion teaser for one of the upcoming Yordles - Vex. Riot has previously confirmed that she will be mid lane mage.

The addition of a new champion is probably one of the most exciting events in the League of Legends universe. The most recently released champion Akshan didn't receive too much praise in the last couple of weeks and players were looking forward to the already announced Yordle named Vex

A recent  video  posted on the official League of Legends subreddit has apparently revealed Vex's unusual champion teaser. The video was apparently leaked by the League of Legends Brasil Twitter account.

The design of the character fits the description of the "gloomy" Yordle mentioned in their roadmap back in April. The champion doesn't look like any existing champion in the game, so there is a big chance that it could be the upcoming Yordle mage who will have a part of the Ruination storyline.

In their most recent Ask Riot article , Riot revealed that the new champion named Vex should be coming out in September which seems unusual considering that Sentinels of Light event is already over and we will be heading into the World Championship hype.

This champion was set to be released before Akshan but in their roadmap Riot revealed that she needs some additional time in development. They've also mentioned that she's moved away from being an artillery mage and she's much closer to a classic mage.

Also, her description mentioned that she's "annoyed as hell" with hyperactive champions around her. This means that she could have a mechanic that will punish dashes, similar to Poppy's Steadfast Presence (W).

Even though she might get released on the following two patches, it's safe to say that she won't be a part of the upcoming League of Legends 2021 World Championship since Riot already confirmed that Akshan will be disabled as well.
