In the past year, out of 18 possible temporary game mode, Riot have only used two. Is this the effect of boosting player numbers, or just the others being far inferior?
One of the mistakes they made was overusing the Ultimate Spellbook game mode, which has even continued with the Steel Valkyries event.
The next, though minor, event Riot Games are bringing to League of Legends is the return of Spirit Blossom, the last event that was a major success for the game.
And it seems that with it, Ultra-Rapid-Fire game mode, aka URF, is also making a comeback:
"Heads up that Pick URF will be heading to PBE this week for testing! If you have any bugs or things: please hit up the League subreddit", said Riot Maxw3ll.
Seeing as the most recent change to League of Legends was the announcement trailer of new Spirit Blossom skins, and Sett's journey to find his father, we can surmise that Spirit Blossom and URF are intertwined in some way.
Unfortunately, this means that this season Riot are content with scavenging their previous successes into what may pass as an event in League of Legends, with a temporary game mode enabled and a whole lot of skins to sell.
Here is hoping that next year is going to be better!
