Today, Friday the 13th, League of Legends fans indulged in the new highly anticipated Fiddlesticks teaser. As the scarecrow champion undergoes an entire overhaul, players have shared their varying opinions on its new updated design. The teaser shows just how terrifying Fiddlesticks is.
The first-person video seemingly named “Terror in Demacia” follows two Demacian soldiers on watch duty as they quietly talk amongst themselves. As one of them mentions how on edge the country’s been since the Fossbarrow terror, a strange noise interrupts them. One of the soldiers then gets up to investigate and suddenly vanishes. His partner then panics and walks further out into the woods, only to discover terror.

In the hazy fog among the dark trees, Fiddlesticks stands with his arms out, holding a swinging lamp. “Help me!” his voice calls out. As a plethora of crows flies away from him, his red eye glows and he assumes a spider-like position. As he crawls toward the viewer, he lets out a haunting screech.
The video ends with the League of Legends logo and a short clip at the end showing a fallen piece of armor on the ground.
