Riot rocked the Harrowing


Seriously, I don’t know if I can say enough good about the Harrowing event that Riot put together for this Halloween. This event blows everything they’ve done in the past way out of the water, so much so that I can’t wait to see what’s in store this holiday season.

If I have one criticism it’s that the new map doesn’t play often enough. I feel like I’m only seeing it 30-40 percent of the time, and I’d definitely like to see it more. It just has great character – the jack-o-lanterns, the bats, the nightly setting, the crazy saturated orange colors. It’s great. Gimme more.

The skins rock, too. My personal favorite is the Poppy skin. Her lollipop turns into a red/white candy cane pattern when Paragon of Demacia is at max stacks and, c’mon, you’re smacking people with a sucker. I also picked up Nosferatu Vlad and Zombie Ryze in the hopes that someday Ryze will be decent and I’ll have a kickass skin for him. I won’t be going for Mundo Mundo, mostly because I saw it in game and I literally didn’t notice it was different until I heard the sound his cleaver made. It’s funny, but not worth $6 or so. I also passed on the Fiddle skin because I’ve already got spectral Fiddle, and if he ever becomes worthy of a cool skin again, I’ll be going for Bandito. That might change over the next couple days. Pumpkinhead Fiddle is currently my desktop background.

In any case, awesome work, Riot. Events like this make me love you.


New skins for the Harrowing

Riot’s gone all out for Halloween this year, bringing us a boatload of new skins to celebrate the League of Legends equivalent to our spookiest holiday, The Harrowing. Just take a look at these skins compared to, say, the Olympic skins from earlier in the year. Remember Vancouver Amumu? Team Spirit Anivia? Now look at that Poppy skin and tell me you don’t want it. Even the Ryze skin looks badass.

All told, we have the following:
– Nosferatu Vladimir
– Lollipoppy
– Zombie Ryze
– Pumpkinhead Fiddlesticks
– Mundo Mundo

That’s in addition to the Sorceress and Spellthief Lux skins that will be in the store once the servers are up. I’m going to spend a lot of money today.
