League of Legends' Holiday Mode

First up, Happy Holidays, everyone!

What's been up and happening since I got swallowed by internship's hospital duties? Let's just say I have somehow cured myself of my online gaming addiction - only to move to PSP addiction, particularly Dissidia and NBA Live (Perhaps I will delve into other platforms eventually and rename this blog?). But that's not the point I'm posting here.

Riot Games has unveiled the temporary Snowdown Showdown mode for League of Legends. The Snowdown will be around until January 2nd, during which players will be able to compete in 1 vs. 1 or 2 vs. 2 duels on the Howling Abyss map. In addition, tons of holiday festivities have been added to the free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA).

For those who want to show their Snowdown spirit, champions including Lulu, Singed, and Sivir all get festive holiday skins this year. You can even purchase a few Legacy Snowdown skins from past celebrations. Riot's also spreading the holiday cheer with free seasonal sight and vision wards that look like snowmen and a gingerbread Teemo.

If Snowdown is your favorite holiday, completing various achievements during the event will earn you Snowdown Summoner Icons that you can use all year. Things like participating in a five-man pre-made and purchasing various gifts will unlock the special icons.

Speaking of gifts, since Snowdown is a time for sharing, Riot has implemented a gifting feature to the League of Legends store, allowing folks to send mystery skins and champions.
