Prestige in the Second Half of 2020

Here's Riot KenAdamsNSA with the newest list of Prestige skins for 2020 - "We've got the list of champs getting Prestige skins through the end of 2020!"
"You should feel confident using Prestige Points and event tokens on the skin you want most. Here's the complete lineup of 2020 prestige skins. No spoilers on unrevealed thematics! 
2020 Prestige Point skins:
  • True Damage Senna (available now)
  • Coven Zyra (available now)
  • Arcanist Zoe (releasing in 10.14)
  • Yasuo
  • Soraka*
*We're trying something different with Soraka: This'll be our first Prestige Edition of a previously-released skin, as a test to gauge interest in Prestiges for older content. 
2020 Event Prestige skins:
  • Mecha Kingdoms Garen (event ended)
  • Dark Star Malphite (event ended)
  • Pulsefire Lucian (event ended)
  • Teemo
  • Ezreal
  • Sett
  • Kai'Sa*
  • Diana
*During Worlds 2018, we released K/DA Kai'Sa Prestige Edition as a one-off before fully defining Prestige as a skin type. It was much harder to unlock than today's Event Prestige skins, and there wasn't yet clarity around what Prestige was or how Prestige and Event Passes worked. We hope Kai'Sa mains who missed the skin back in 2018 (whether due to difficulty or confusion over availability) enjoy the new option. 
All 2020 Event Prestige skins will return in the end of the year Prestige Shop for purchase with Prestige Points. Unlocking a 2020 Prestige skin via loot drop or skin shard reroll will only grant the border and icon if the skin is still obtainable via 2020 Prestige Points (for Prestige Point skins) or Event Tokens (for Event Prestige skins). 
Border and icon cutoff dates:
  • Prestige Point skins: January 28th 2021, 13:00 PT
  • Event Prestige skins: When tokens expire from your inventory
    • When event token skins return at the end of the year for purchase with Prestige Points, those purchases won't grant borders or icons (aside from Diana for the period she's available for purchase via Event Tokens).
2020 Prestige Point expiration 
2020 Prestige Points will expire January 28th 2021, 13:00 PT. At that point, 2020's Prestige Point skins will become unobtainable outside of Hextech Crafting drops."

He added:
"To be ultra clear - the Kai’Sa prestige this year is a NEW Prestige. Not a re-release."

Universe Update

The Universe was updated with a new story and updated biographies for Xayah and Rakan!
"Xayah jumped upward into the trees’ foliage, dodging the gunfire that exploded from the temple’s walls. The humans called their weapons “Kashuri rifles”. They were deadly, and the town’s guards were obviously trained warriors. But they were too late. Too late to hit her. Too late to stop the tribesmen she commanded, who had already climbed the ancient temple and reached what it guarded: a quinlon. 
It was a circle of five massive rocks, orbiting around each other, floating in the sky. A great ward, it contained ancient enchantments, which held back and limited the natural magic of this land. 
From the quinlon’s gray stone hung a dozen ropes, attached to spikes that the vastayan tribesmen had cast and hammered into it. The tribesmen were the Kepthalla vastaya. Their bodies were feathered, like Xayah’s own tribe, but their heads were long, and from their crown grew great horns. 
Hanging from some of those lines, with ropes tied to their waists, were the bodies of the slain. And on the ground far below were more dead bodies. A dozen comrades who had died trying to reach the stone—killed by the humans’ cruel missiles. But their sacrifice had, at least, secured the line Xayah needed. 
She nodded to Rakan, her lover and partner. He stole a kiss from her as he took the bundle she held. Then Rakan bounded into the treetops."

Other Games

"The Season of Fortune continues with Patch 1.5 and the introduction of Labs, a new game mode that’s all about variety, experimentation, and maybe a little chaos. We’ve also got a few quality-of-life improvements and even a few balance changes!"
"Easier reading this go around; the first patch of Rated queue is looking fairly stable thus far, so we’ve opted to keep our balance changes light in order to let the meta evolve naturally. 
Invest in Guardian stocks, as the weapon is beginning to find itself! These updates should help the weapon better carve its own gameplay niche as a heavy-hitting and affordable precision rifle. Also, Spike Rush lovers continue to get spoiled with yet another new orb. 
The recently added Surrender option gets a dedicated button to help cast your vote. And the vote threshold is changing for Unrated to require only a majority vote, whereas Competitive will still require a unanimous Yes to surrender. 
You can also surrender sooner now, for when it feels like your opponent has a 141 2/3% chance of winning."
