champ 600


Some great amps spotted at Capsule Music, Toronto.  Up top we have a 1953 Fender Champion 600 and what I believe is a late 50s Princeton behind it.  Note the refinished black 1963 Jaguar too!

Below we have something that really intrigues me.  It’s a 1972 Marshall 2061 Bass 20, according to the the shop it is among the last of the hand-wired Marshalls.  I’d love to use it for guitar like a Bassman, but you can get an actual Bassman for less money than this one!  :D

Champion Mastery Levels 6 and 7 live now!

Show off your skill with your favorite champs along with your dedication to them with new Champion Mastery Levels 6 and 7. When we launched Champion Mastery, our goal was to recognize you for playing the champs you love, and give you feedback on how well you play them. The new levels go further, requiring high-skill performances in addition to time spent playing.

As you rank up, you’ll unlock champ mastery rewards:

  • New mastery badge emotes
  • New loading screen border flags
  • Announcement banner upgrade

But first, here’s how you hit the new levels using the Hextech Crafting system: 

Champion Mastery Level 6

  • Reach Mastery Level 5 on a champ
  • Earn an S- or higher with that champion, unlocking a Mastery token for that champion
  • Combine 2 Mastery tokens with a champ shard of the same champ, OR the champ permanent of the same champ, OR 500 blue essence, to unlock Level 6

Champion Mastery Level 7

  • Reach Mastery Level 6 on a champ
  • You can no longer earn Mastery 6 tokens for that champ with S- grades, but…
  • Earn an S or higher in a champ mastery-enabled queue with that champ, unlocking a newMastery token for that specific champ
  • Combine 3 Mastery tokens with a champ shard of the same champ, OR the champ permanent of the same champ, OR 600 blue essence, to unlock Level 7

We’re emphasizing a performance requirement alongside a dedication component (the time needed to unlock free chests or earn IP for the champ shards or permanent loot) to build on the original system’s blend of skill and participation.

Because loot has some RNG elements to finding champ shards and permanents, we’re working on a way to pick up only champ shards for IP or RP. We’re aiming to have it up within the next patch or two. We’ll continue to tweak and update loot and Mastery, and we’re still looking for your feedback–especially about the new additions to champ mastery. Leave us your comments and questions below, and we’ll see you on the Rift!
