It’s really just not Christmas without your favorite games doing something fancy for the holidays. For years in the office we longingly looked forward to Frostfell in Everquest 2. League of Legends players know the yearly Snowdown Showdown event quite well and that magical time of year is nearly upon us.
This years event is even more exciting than normal. On top of the yearly Christmas themed skins up for sale we also get a brand new 1v1 and 2v2 Howling Abyss game mode.
You’ve shot off five Final Sparks and achieved immortality through constant Chrono Shifts, but now it’s time for a Showdown.
For the next Featured Gameplay Mode, you’ll be able to duel it out with friends and foes alike on an icy battlefield that promises contests of epic proportions.
With three paths to an honorable victory, will you go full ham and draw first blood, wave clear your way to 100 CS or channel your inner Ziggs and demolish the turret before your opponent?
If you queue up with a buddy for the beatdowns, you’ll notice that you need two kills to earn the dubya, or the two of you can combine to hit that century CS mark.
Sharpen your swords and ready your hextech revolvers. The Showdown approaches this Snowdown.
