League of Legends Snowdown: Everything you need to know
Snowdown Showdown is a winter themed annual event hosted by Riot Games. The event brings a variety of festivities, from event skins to a snow covered map. Most notable is the Snowdown Showdown game mode, where players can compete on an icy battlefield. This mode has three ways to win: either by getting first blood, taking a turret, or achieving 100 CS.
Nexus Blitz will also be returning to League of Legends the same day as Snowdown Showdown. Nexus Blitz is a fast paced, two lane game mode that lasts around 15-20 minutes. Nexus Blitz offers a ton of crazy events, including a giant Teemo, and this time it's coming back with updated art and a few new changes.
