League of Legends

It looks like reports of Gangplank's death in the League of Legends storyline were premature.

In what should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, Riot has "revived" Gangplank, who, it turns out, wasn't really dead after all. He just lost a limb (since replaced) and is enjoying a vacation of sorts on the PBE. He's even getting a new skin, Captain Gangplank:

Captain Gangplank reflects a simpler time, when one uncrowned reaver king ruled over Bilgewater with an iron cutlass and a fearsome love of scrimshaw. While base Gangplank has been irrevocably changed by Miss Fortune’s masterful scheme, the Captain Gangplank skin hearkens back to before the pirate’s bloody fall.

To make up for the inconvenience of not being able to use Gangplank for a few days, Riot is giving away the skin to anyone who plays a full game with Gangplank from now until the end of the Bilgewater: Burning Tides event, at 2:00 a.m. PDT on Aug. 10.

So I guess you could say that Gangplank's death was only tempARRRRRRRRRRary... right? Right? C'mon, guys, work with me here...
