Nexus Blitz, Neeko, Snowdown, and All-Star 

Here's Bilby with some details on upcoming event and gamemodes coming soon:
"December’s bringing flurries of stuff to keep track of. Here are all the links you should need to close your year out right.

Nexus Blitz 
Nexus Blitz returns until January 21, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. PT! 
Skirmish across a compact, 2-lane map with constant action and map-wide events in this fast-paced (15-20 minutes) experimental mode. 
Nexus Blitz features mayhem-inducing events like:
  • Bardle Royale: Both teams battle it out in an ever-shrinking circle of death until only one is left standing.
  • Loot Teemo: Chase a giant Teemo around the map and hit him to take his gold!
  • (NEW) Prize Fight: Teams face off in a gauntlet of 1v1s and 2v2s. Strongest vs strongest, down to... less-strongest vs less-strongest.
  • (NEW) URF Deathmatch: Everyone is URF’ed (with massively reduced cooldowns, attack speed, no mana, and more). Everyone has three lives. Fight until one team runs out! 
Winning an event grants one of several wild rewards, including: 
  • Catapult of Champions: Click the giant cannon next to your fountain to launch yourself across the map!
  • Blessing of Blitzcrank: Gives your turrets and cannon minions Blitzcrank’s Rocket Grab.
  • (NEW) Battle Sled: The whole team can pile into this vehicle, with the first player to click acting as driver. Take a leisurely cruise around the map until you hit something and the sled explodes, damaging and knocking up nearby enemies.
Neeko
Why be one champion when you can be all of them? Neeko, the Curious Chameleon, arrives in Patch 8.24 with a Winter Wonder skin that’s a perfect fit for the season. 
Learn more about Neeko here.

Snowdown & K/DA Akali Prestige Edition 
Snowdown brings new skins for Neeko, Master Yi, Soraka, Dr. Mundo, and Twitch, gold chromas for past Snowdown skins, new icons/emotes/wards, and the K/DA Akali Prestige Edition skin. 
All-Star 2018 
See it all in action at the 2018 All-Star Event. On December 6 – 8 we’ll see 70 of the top pros and League Partners from around the world come together in Las Vegas to celebrate the end of the 2018 season. See what kind of trickery the pros can pull off with Neeko and watch the new snowdown skins in action. Learn more about what (and who) to expect here."

Snowdown Merch Store Update

The Riot Games Merch store was updated with a new Snowdown themed selection of holiday items, new figures, plush, and more!

Here's more from the Riot Games Merch FB:

Check out the list of new items:


"We have a whole new lineup of K/DA Merch coming next year but thought we would end this year with a sneak peak at one of the most asked for items - Akali's black light mask with UV ink."

Miscellaneous

"Wanted to share a (very unscientific) reference of what to expect for Ranked until season start. Is this helpful for folks? How could we improve on this if we kept updating it through the first split?"
