League of Legends Nexus Blitz mode is coming back soon with the game mode expected to re-release in Patch 8.24.
Introduced as an experimental game mode with plans to make it permanent, Riot Games released Nexus Blitz weeks ago to give players another non-traditional League experience. Though its still planned to be a permanent game mode, Riot Games took it down for a while to work on it more, but its coming back soon.
Over the last few weeks, weve been poring through all your feedback and analyzing data from every region with playrate graphs that look like abstract impressionism, Riot Spacenorth said in an update on the League of Legends Nexus page. Were no art critics, but the interpretation is pretty clear: Nexus Blitz showed some promise, so were bringing it back for a second test run, targeted for patch 8.24!
Regarding the reasoning behind taking down the game mode, the Rioter said that while Nexus Blitz was enjoyed by many players, there were some clear shortcomings with the game mode that would prevent it from being a permanent fixture. After identifying some of those issues based on players feedback, the second test will come with some fixes for the problems to see if round two resonates better with players.
