I am a big fan of Hazluff's League of Legends keyset. I wanted to make a set to match the legends but that would also stand well on its own—and to allow a second run of the LoL set for people who didn't have them (and to fix the fact that the originals didn't have a homing bump on the F key). Hence this set. :)

Many thanks to Hazeluff and Sherryton for their kind permission to include a new round of the LoL keyset as part of this.

Here is what my set, which I'm calling "Legends for League" will look like with the LoL keyset installed, but I'm also going to make a full set in the black and yellow scheme for people who don't want the LoL colored keys.
85006-0

It's a pretty slick simple set of dark keys with yellow legends in DCS profile. An excellent and elegant set for anybody.

I'm likely to do this as a group buy through PimpMyKeyboard, since that went smoothly with my Galaxy Class group buy.

The SP colors are GQM and YY. And for the LoL sub-set: RA and BDH.


So......anybody interested? :D

i just bought 2 sets of these keys from you a couple of weeks ago but i'm definitely interested for more to give my buddies. are you no longer adding the "GG" key on the Esc position or did you just forget it? we could also add more options for other keys like maybe the number 3 for trinket use.

Getting those out is actually what made me remember I wanted to do this project. I have been planning on doing it for months but just got distracted by the Galaxy Class GB. Excited to get rolling on this one. :)

Just forgot. I'll update the illustration above now.

You'd better add an option for non Legends for League aficionados with standard legends.

Sadly, Signature Plastics doesn't have molds for Topre stems.

Yes, that is the plan, as mentioned in the opening post. I just haven't made the mockup for that yet.

i really hope this goes through, bro. i'm pretty sure there's a huge demand for this as there's alot of league players who use a mechanical keyboard but are not enthusiasts. the biggest problem is reaching out to them.

I'm actually not a LoL player myself. This is for several friends of mine who are. So I'm very open to any specific suggestions you may have on how to make the LoL add-on better than it already is. :)

Oh, yes. I forgot to put that in mockup. Just remind me when I post the final ones if I forget again. ;)

Not a LOL player but I have a few family members who are like hardcore LOL players and some play it here and there. I think this will be a great gift for them.

P.S.
When I first heard them said "LOL" out-loud I always thought they were referring to "laugh out loud" so I always look at them with a "wtf" face.  :p

I haven't played LOL enough to warrant buying these for myself, I know some people who would enjoy them but those who are wont be wanting to shell out the money for them.

Good luck, they look good  :thumb:

Trinket is always on 4, not 3.

The only other keys that I use a ton are A (attack-move), S (stop), and left shift.  But I think the limited keys here are enough, and I like them, and the overall color set.  I'll be in for a set + LoL mods.

I did this for a pad printed set I had made:

[ Specified attachment is not available ]

It won't work as is for double-shots, but if it sounds cool, I can modify it to meet SP's specs for DS legends.  I could also make a dragon for the right side.  Let me know if you think it would be worth my time.

Interesting. I think your image could be rendered in doubleshot, actually, with only a few mods. I would need the source vectors to be able to say for sure. Is it your rendering of the NPC from the game, or is it a copyrighted image? We should not directly use any artwork that is copyrighted.

I don't play League, but if you had an option without the qwer colors, I am interested.

It's original artwork.  I worked with a screenshot on one screen, and inkscape open on the other.  I'll dig up the vector... I think it's on another computer.

I thing there might be more than just a little bit of work needed to make it happen double shot.  Facetsesame's wild duck keys couldn't be done in 1x, and just fit in 1.25x.  It leads me to believe that the duck is about the limit of detail available.  So totally doable, but many of the details that I have on the vector graphic would need to go.

That sounds about right. I'd have to ask SP what the radius of their router is. That would be the minimum detail would could render. If you have the vector (or even better would like to take a stab at a simplified version), I'd be happy to send it to them to check. It would make a nice optional addition to the set.
