An All-Star Duel Map Revealed, New Splash Art, Skins, Icons, Champion/Skin Sale and Free Week!

 

 

New Freljord Art

 

Here are all the splash arts from the Freljord updates we’ve been receiving over the past few weeks. These include Lissandra, Nunu, Sejuani, Trundle, as well as the Bloodstone Lissandra, Blackfrost Anivia, Ice Drake Shyvana and Runeguard Volibear skins. Click on the captions for my previews of each one:

 New Frost Icons & Lore Quests

 

The Hollowing Abyss is deeply tied to the latest lore pieces released by Riot. The Three Sisters (Ashe, Sejuani and Lissandra) are sworn enemies and whenever they encounter each other on one map, they engage in a hunt quest- sort of like the Kha’Zix/Rengar interaction.

There are special quotes for each of the sisters whenever this event occurs:

 

AsheSquare“Lissandra is an abomination. Ashe must eliminate her to protect her people.” 

“Sejuani cannot be reasoned with. Ashe must defeat her to build a better future for the Freljord.” 

 

LissandraSquare

“Ashe is a powerful symbol to her people. Lissandra must kill her, so they will fall in line.” 

“Sejuani is too reckless and powerful to control. Lissandra must put her down.” 

 

SejuaniFrostIcon

“Ashe’s peaceful alliance must be broken. Sejuani must kill her and rule with strength.” 

“Lissandra is an abomination. Sejuani must crush her to purify the Freljord.”

 

 

Three Frost Icons have also been included on the PBE Client:

As you probably remember, a new Summoner Icon collecting method was recently shown by Rioter BlueFire. These latest icons are most likely tied to the Three Sisters Quest and will be unlocked via this new system.

 

 

Taipei Assassins world champion skins

 

Splash_TPA_Final

 

Reigning world champions Taipei Assassins secured their place in League of Legends history when they defeated Azubu Frost at the Season Two World Finals. Soon, you’ll be able to field TPA’s winning lineup with new skins that commemorate their victory. Get ready to capture the power and ferocity of these titans of Taiwan during the LCS All Star break!

 

Here is the official announcement from Garena (it’s in Chinese):

“Whether we succeed or fail, using the limited resources that we have to work with players’ interests is a must. Even with numerous setbacks, Garena will keep Summoners’ thoughts at first priority, because their interests are our interests.

We still remember the victory of Azubu Taipei Assassins in Season 2, so to commemorate this glorious feat, we had Riot design special Azubu TPA commemoration skins for Ezreal, Mundo, Nunu, Orianna and Shen. After six months of planning, these skins are close to release.

Note: These skins will be available in the Store for all Summoners.

 

 

A 1v1/2v2 duel map leaked!

 

A video on a Chinese website shows what’s apparently a duel map!
Here is a much quicker-loading Youtube version:

 


VP of eSports RedBeard mentioned that this map was designed purely for the All-Star Game:

 

Ziggs_PoolPartyRiotlink Button RedBeard: Hey guys – since this is getting a ton of attention, I thought I’d pop in to share a few details:

This ‘first blood’ map was dreamed up by some Rioters who wanted to make an awesome 1v1/2v2 map JUST for the All-Star game. They brewed it up during the ‘Thunderdome,’ which is a regular all-night hackathon Riot holds to explore cool new stuff.

Wickd vs SoAZ’s 1v1 extravaganza was awesome to watch and got me even more hyped up for this event at the All-Star game.

Because it was created solely with the idea of using it in the All-Star game, it’s not something that we have any concrete plans for besides the event.

    Well people who are smart ignore those people, because chances are they are self-centered baddies/ragers.

    Team fight arena is a good idea. Something Lol should definitely have….
    People don’t bag out a 1v1, 2v2 map… There isn’t one good reason to not have the new map.

    @Alex

    Hey, Alex,

    It’s not just that I’m the only one doing news and announcements, but I can’t be posting articles of every small bit, because I’m paid per article. Generally I wait for several things to come up and merge them into one article.
    I get what you mean, it’s just I’m not really a journalist or a news reporter. I simply maintain a blog and I upload everything I think readers will find interesting, it just can’t be done with small announcements like, say, surr@20.

    “The following and champions will be put on half price for the next three days”
    The following skins?
    Just thought you might want to correct this small error.

    Again, you’re two weeks behind the curve. I understand how difficult it is to keep up with everything when there are other outside factors, but this is your job. Perhaps some additional manpower would help get the news out faster?

    For instance, the TPA skins were announced on the Garena site on the 18th, 5 days ago. Reign of Gaming reported on the event within two hours of the article. I’m not criticizing you, but simply pointing out that it is the very goal of journalism to report the news as quickly and accurately as possible.

    Pls create a new map where is just team fights.
    Just like a arena and you start at max lvl, 5000 gold or something like that and then you have to get 100 kills first than the enemy

    @Kelly
    yeah true but now there is a map specifically for it so more people will start shit just to 1v1 someone and gain some self esteem haha.

    I really like the idea of making a 1v1/2v2 map. I wonder if there will ever be ranked 1v1/2v2.
