Meet Rumble, the Mechanized Menace

Riot Games would like to introduce you to the newest champion to take the field in its game, League of Legends.

Rumble is a tough melee caster whose abilities draw from the new "heat" mechanic.  Every ability Rumble casts generates heat. As heat goes up, Rumble's abilities get more powerful; however, if Rumble overheats, he can no longer cast abilities until "heat" cools down, but his basic attacks become more powerful.



Riot Games, developer and publisher of the acclaimed PC game League of Legends, today released the latest champion to fight on the Fields of Justice – Rumble, the Mechanized Menace.

Rumble is a beefy melee caster using a brand-new mechanic called “heat.” All of Rumble’s abilities generate heat, which “cools down” if he stops using skills for a short period. The more he heats up, the more powerful his abilities are – but a bold Rumble player runs the risk of overheating, silencing rumble but dramatically increasing his base attack damage.
