Winter is Coming

Winter is Coming… to Summoner’s Rift

Once upon a time, Summoner’s Rift wasn’t held to its current stale state. It had a beautiful three seasons, before the set of updates reviving the map (why no Spring?). But as a result, the weather became forever still in a kind of Summer-theme. But from the depths of Riot’s Turkish Facebook, a long-awaited announcement has arrived: Winter is coming.

Amidst the onslaught of meme-killing from Riot that began a couple of months ago which include a replay system, monetizing the pro scene, and a new client, the company behind League of Legends has also decided to bring back a festive favorite. Beyond the happiness that the sight of snow will bring to the young-hearted, a wave of nostalgia is expected to also hit the jaded community of beta/season 1 veterans.

One of the traditional critiques of the map update is its effect on people’s eyes. The high albedo of the ground can be blinding for the countless cavern-dwelling computer crackpots. Perhaps this change will see the resurrection of the never-fashionable ‘Gunnars’.

GUNNAR – everyone’s favorite pseudo-sunglasses that really scream out “nerd”.

My only hope is that the season’s greetings might take the flaming out of the solo queue ‘Grinches’.
