League of Legends news » Nexus Blitz, Neeko, Snowdown, and All-Star
December’s bringing flurries of stuff to keep track of. Here are all the links you should need to close your year out right.
Nexus Blitz returns until January 22, 2019, at 07:59 GMT!
Skirmish across a compact, 2-lane map with constant action and map-wide events in this fast-paced (15-20 minutes) experimental mode.
Nexus Blitz features mayhem-inducing events like:
- Bardle Royale: Both teams battle it out in an ever-shrinking circle of death until only one is left standing.
- Loot Teemo: Chase a giant Teemo around the map and hit him to take his gold!
- (NEW) Prize Fight: Teams face off in a gauntlet of 1v1s and 2v2s. Strongest vs strongest, down to... less-strongest vs less-strongest.
- (NEW) URF Deathmatch: Everyone is URF’ed (with massively reduced cooldowns, attack speed, no mana, and more). Everyone has three lives. Fight until one team runs out!
Winning an event grants one of several wild rewards, including:
- Catapult of Champions: Click the giant cannon next to your fountain to launch yourself across the map!
- Blessing of Blitzcrank: Gives your turrets and cannon minions Blitzcrank’s Rocket Grab.
- (NEW) Battle Sled: The whole team can pile into this vehicle, with the first player to click acting as driver. Take a leisurely cruise around the map until you hit something and the sled explodes, damaging and knocking up nearby enemies.
Why be one champion when you can be all of them? Neeko, the Curious Chameleon, arrives in Patch 8.24 with a Winter Wonder skin that’s a perfect fit for the season.

Snowdown brings new skins for Neeko, Master Yi, Soraka, Dr. Mundo, and Twitch, gold chromas for past Snowdown skins, new icons/emotes/wards, and the K/DA Akali Prestige Edition skin.
