Hall of Fame
Welcome everyone to the Hall of Fame page for Mapskins, where you will find all the great creators who have helped us getting the site to the place it is today. Here your name will be cemented into legacy where we honor the greatest of the great creators. So get your coffee and grab some biscuits while looking through the page.
Mapskins, formerly known as Yurixyworks, was founded in 2010 by Yurixy. Back then the site was providing Heroes of Newerth (HoN) custom skins. After a while the site converted to League of Legends skin. Yurixy had a great interest in creating Map Skins and thus the site mainly consisted of them. But then somewhere along the way all the maps broke because of a patch in Season 3. Luckily Chewy found a way to fix the maps. After this happened, Chewy had joined Yurixyworks to create map skins. Fast forward a year, Chewy and Yurixy decided to create their own LoL Custom skin installer with great help from LGG. This app would later become the successor of Skin Installer Ultimate (SIU). It was named after Chewy (the Wookie) and Yurixy which then became Wooxy. Around the same time, the name of the site was changed to Mapskins since the team was growing and Yurixy didn’t find it fair that the site was named after him even though it’s a site based on a team. Since the site was specialized in Map Skins back then, the name mapskins.com was decided. More Creators started to join mapskins including the likes of Existor, PentaKing & YoloHagrid. The small team became a family of creators. After a good 6 months, more creators got the opportunity to join mapskins. We switched from a small skype team to a discord server with multiple roles to divide contributors, authors and editors with possibilities to get a higher rank.
And now here we are as one of the biggest Custom Skin sites for League of legends with over a 200 registered creators and daily creations. We announced a new Rank named “Legends”. These members will be engraved on this Hall of Fame page where they shall be remembered forever. Continue on this page to find out more about our great Creators.
