A little bit ago, Riot dropped a teaser for this year's League of Legends holiday activities, including a full list of confirmed vintage skins returning to the market. Well, earlier today, the company also teased the new featured Snowdown mode again, hinting at some objective-based gameplay.
Sure, League matches do revolve around completing objectives, and the ultimate one is destroying the enemy Nexus. Well, in the 1v1/2v2 Snowdown mode, which is a variant of the Howling Abyss map, players can win by completing a certain objective. At least, that's what the recent blog post seems to suggest.
With three paths to an honorable victory, will you go full ham and draw first blood, waveclear 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.
Could be those objectives are just one aspect of Snowdown, but given the 1v1/2v2 setup, objective-based victory does make sense. After all, it would take a really long time for such tiny teams to reach the Nexus.
