More info on Shopkeeper and Holiday Nashor icons

Posted on at 10:39 AM by Moobeat
Over on reddit, Hippalus dropped off some info regarding when the next ( and final ) batch of Holiday Nashor icons will be distributed and finally revealing how players can earn the Shopkeeper icon!
"The Snowdown behavior data is being analyzed by the Player Behavior team and the final batch of Santa Baron icons will be granted when that is complete (next week at the latest). They are more concerned with identifying the right players than with getting them out quickly.

The Shopkeeper icon will then be granted to anyone who earned at least 4 of the other icons (for playing a premade, gifting RP, gifting a champion, gifting a skin, and/or behavior).

Thank you for asking politely!"
While the 2012 Snowdown Showdown event is now OVER ( meaning the rest of the icons are no longer obtainable ), you can check out this post for more info on how each icon was obtained.

  6. Got my santa Baron right off the bat when they release it. maybe you need to have 0 warnings/bans?

  7. Yep, the way they are handing those out does not make any sense. I have an acquaintance who is a fairly toxic player who somehow managed to get one, I, on the other hand have played as sportsmanlike as I think possible and have yet to earn the icon.

  8. I always try to help, honour those who truly deserve it and always try
    to keep everything cheerfull. A friend of mine is a bit egostruck. He
    keeps calling everybody a noob and always reports his team for " failing
    at games".

    He got the Icon and I didnt :P

  9. Maybe the system doesn't like kiss-asses? Or maybe it dislikes the belittling of the word "love"?


    ... in all seriousness, he said they haven't released the final batch yet.

  11. I also got three, but fortunately I don't like the shopkeeper one =)

    ReplyDelete
  12. When will shopkeeper be given out? i got 4 icons but no shopkeeper so far
    later this week or next patch?

    ReplyDelete
  13. No sorry maybe next time.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Maybe you get a lot of ''fake'' reports, like intentionally feeding and assisting enemy team when you play badly which leads your total number of reports to be higher than the toxic player? Even though you've never been banned/warned. Just speculating though.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I´ve never been banned or warned and i got nothing. My friend who have been banned three times and rages in every game got it. SRSLY?

    ReplyDelete
  16. you smell terrible

    ReplyDelete
  17. same with me, a friend of mine, who leaves game often just because I has to eat (I mean dont even start a match when you know you have to eat in half an hour) got the icon, while I am someone who's always very soprtman like, I honer people when they do, I tell people what they can do better (even the enemy) and still I dont have one...

    this is just weird, but I gues I can live with out :(

  18. I felt the same way after getting Yellow Honor.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm honored and I never got Santa Baron's icon :/

    ReplyDelete
  20. They have not been given out yet I am guessing. Probably will come out during the last wave of Nashor icons.


    I shall be obtaining it, as I already have the rest of them.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have 0 warnings/bans, no icon.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hah got like same situation - lol.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah me too. Heck, even friends that ragequit and curse at ANYTHING have it >.>

    ReplyDelete
  24. You sir, should be ashamed to even post that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. i was a dandy ass cheery merry christmasy spreading son of a bitch, if i dont get the baron ill be sad cuz that's the one i need for the shop keeper.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't really think it's about honoring people who honor you. That's not the point of honor at all.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well, I try my hardest to be nice in games but you never know with riot. Maybe by being so nice, I'm actually being rude by not telling people how bad they are and letting live in the fantasy that they are a good player no matter how fast they lose their lane or bait the entire team to their deaths.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's mostly like the honor banners. You probably play very few games and mostly with your friends.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've never been banned or warned, and I have the honourable opponent ribbon. But no icon yet.. I'll be really confused if that's not good enough, because I have some friends who don't even have ribbons and are jerks and they've got it.

  30. I got banned once and reported and still got the Santa baron :l

    ReplyDelete
  31. So if we get the Santa Baron Icon AFTER the week's end, and we have 3 Icons now (making the newest santa baron a 4th) Will we get the Shopkeeper Icon then?

    ReplyDelete
  32. The biggest a-hole i have ever met had a friendly badge. Honor means nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Seems like everyone has that friend who rages constantly, got the icon. I really wanna know what formula they used to give the icon out.

    ReplyDelete
  34. yup same here my friend that's an ass flame almost every game (yea I'm avoiding playing with him, but that's not always easy as he's my good friend, but in game he's an asshole :P) and he got Baron icon first day :P ehh :P

    ReplyDelete
  35. Was wondering about this. Like others, I'm a little confused at how I don't have the Baron one while my delinquent friends do, but, hopefully I get it during this wave.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't understand I didn't even get a single icon at all yet? :(. Does anyone know why?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was kind of kidding, but I did get it the day of the patch no idea why.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am at ban lvl4 (because of AFK and D/C) but still got it first batch lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. I played 5 man premade during Xmas and still don't have an icon :(

    ReplyDelete
  40. Well, Shopkeeper < Urf??

    ReplyDelete
  41. This baron icon is so lame, ive seen so many idiots with it that i dont want to have it. Its not unique at all. Im sure shopkeeper icon will be more rare that baron icon. If flamers or players who dont play at all are rewarded with this so gj riot.

    ReplyDelete
  42. That's probably the case for myself as well. Hopefully the last batch of Xmas Barons will be sorted out in a fairer and smarter way than the first.

    ReplyDelete
  43. F: one sportsmanlike friend + calling people names in-game = icon (?)

    ReplyDelete
  44. You know I'm your number one fan sir? (ActuallyNotSarcasm)
