It was not too long ago that Riot decided to share a little teaser for what will happen to League of Legends in this coming holiday season, where among them include a comprehensive list of confirmed vintage skins which will be making their way back to the market. Apart from that, there was also a teaser for the new featured Snowdown mode, which would most probably point gamers in the direction of a certain degree of objective-based gameplay.
While certain League of Legends matches do happen to require the completion of objectives, the main one lies in destroying the enemy Nexus. In the 1v1/2v2 Snowdown mode, which so happens to be a variant of the Howling Abyss map, players are able to achieve victory simply by mopping up a certain objective. Considering how arriving at a victory is a road that has many paths, which particular one will you take? Decisions, decisions! Well, nobody said that being a dedicated gamer is an easy thing to do in the first place, what more when you need to make split second decisions on the spot, or to work out a particular game strategy before the match actually starts. At the very least, gaming will hone your decision making process.
Gamers can be a pretty passionate bunch of people, especially when it comes to the games that they love. There are also times when gamers will sign petitions in order to get a particular game onto a certain platform. Nintendo certainly has their fair share of passionate fans, many of whom have taken part in Operation Rainfall, in which many gamers signed a petition to get Nintendo to bring Japanese titles, such as the Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora’s Tower to North America where it was localized. This particular petition was successful which undoubtedly made many gamers happy, but it seems that if you’re hoping that future petitions will sway Nintendo’s decisions, don’t count on it.
