Nexus Blitz has made its name in the League of Legends esports circuit as an intriguing gameplay mode. The format is expected to be popular for esports events as it adds a new range of competition to League of Legends. But while it was released by Riot Games a few months earlier, that game was made primarily with experimentation in mind to see how well such a format can work.
Riot Games announced that the Nexus Blitz format is still being perfected. The game setup will return soon as Patch 8.24 is released in the future. The edits to the game will include some dramatic changes that will quickly influence some of the different things that players will expect to enjoy.
About the Format
Nexus Blitz has some similar objectives to the standard gameplay format used in League of Legends. But while there are two teams of five players, two junglers must be included on each side. Also, buffs would be given out as rewards to players who do well in their matches.
Games regularly go on for 15 minutes in this mode, although the last event may cause a game to extend to 18 minutes in length. Also, those who pick the Lane option will choose the summoner spells that they wish to utilize. The Jungle players will have to use the Smite spell. Players cannot get Control Wards in this game mode.
The experimentation for Nexus Blitz took place in August. There was some positive feedback surrounding the mode, thus increasing the chances that it might become a part of future esports competitions.
What Changes Will Come About?
Some changes are being planned to Nexus Blitz to make the game format easier to work with. Among these changes include some new events that focus on smaller competitions between individuals and less on team-based fighting. Some maps will also be reorganized and produced with new features in mind to create a more appealing layout for competition.
The Snowball Fight gameplay option will also be removed. Riot states that the group had more negative responses to the Snowball Fight than other formats.
The rewards that will be offered are also being slightly revised. The new rewards being provided in the Nexus Blitz game include some buffs for general heroes, although Riot has not announced what they would be. Some rewards like Blessing of Caitlyn will be removed due to those not being all that effective for most players.
The physical array of the main Blitz map will also be slightly reorganized. Riot states that the original look of the map made it look like a rough prototype. Some graphical revisions will be made to produce a more attractive map that will add an attractive design.
Details on when Patch 8.24 will be released with the return of the Nexus Blitz are unclear. But even with this, it is believed that Patch 8.24 will be more appealing for players to check out as they enjoy a game format that may potentially grow and become a popular option for esports competitions around the world.
