FGC agrees 2XKO is an L name—and some fan ideas are already way better

Project L has finally got an official name—2XKO—as Riot Games moves to a more open line of communication around the game’s development. Unfortunately, the new name is being nearly critically panned by the fighting game community (FGC) as it makes its first marks in the scene.

2XKO, which the dev team today said is pronounced exactly as it is spelled for everyone asking, fits the Riot fighter’s focus on two-on-two combat quite well. That does not mean the wider FGC isn’t going to dunk on a name that sounds like a fledgling crypto project and is actually a biological structural basis—whatever that means.
