Trivia

  • This mode is heavily inspired by the Dark Star skin theme and was released concurrently with the 2017 Dark Star skins.
  • This mode is the first game mode not to have a champion select screen before the game.
    • It is the first game mode to have only one playable champion for each player, and to that extent the first game mode to unlock a certain skin for each player while they are playing the champion in the mode.
    • It is the first game mode to primarily have cosmetic items, and to that extent no item shop.
