Ahoy there, Phinn fans! We’ve been blown away by the response to the Summer Party Phinn skin. While we intended for this skin to make Summer Live Championships that much more exciting, people have felt left out of the giveaway.

Summer Party Phinn Alternate Fate: ‘The Lifesaver’
“Was me who saved the pretty girl from the shark, even though Muscles and Zombie over there want the credit. I saw the shadow of that toothy beauty from the deck of my boat and did what any good captain would do: threw the lifesaver out. Of course the boat was way off in the deep water, but I can throw pretty far when I put my mind to it. Was a nice change, saving a pretty girl instead of stealing her for once.” —Phinn
MORE SUMMER LORE
Note: Summer Party Phinn is NOT the third mystery summer skin! This is an extra bonus skin.
