Though the 2015 Season just began, we were going to share an exclusive look into the evolution of League of Legends gameplay with the New Ultra Rapid Fire mode, but as you all know, that didn’t quite work out.
A suite of silly skins is available now in celebration of April Fools. Join Nasus, Soraka, Udyr, and Nami at someone’s (no one is sure whose) surprise party with colorful costumes and more than a few in-jokes.
Whatever the surge’s origin, whether through a nefarious or fair mistake, the result is the same. The only existing copies of New Ultra Rapid Fire perished in the flames, and, while only time will tell, it appears that the uploaded version has transformed.
It’s been a little over a year since the release of the Riot Games API, and since then there’s been a lot of great stuff that we’ve seen from the community. We’re continually excited to see all the new creations that you guys put together, so in an effort to have a little fun and strengthen the developer community we’re happy to present our first API Challenge.
Almost one year ago, we debuted a new way to play League of Legends in a silly, fun game mode that turned competitive balance on its head in celebration of the yearly troll-fest known as April Fools. While we were ultimately kidding, many of our designers saw the opportunity to work on a true evolution of League gameplay inspired by URF.
