The holiday event, which will run until January 9th, 2020, introduces a free Winter Game Board and the title of ‘Midwinter Wanderer’. This new board features regular opportunities to win special presents by destroying possessed snowmen who randomly appear across the festive battlefield. Presents include cardbacks, resources, borders, avatars — as well as the chance of an ultra-rare item.
Additionally, until January 2nd, players can also take part in a special Yule Challenge, choosing to support one of two sides: Santa Crach or Wraith of Yule. By completing specific challenges and quests during the event, players will earn reward points — as well as contribute to the total point tally for their side. XP boosts will be given out to participants once the Yule Challenge is over, based on which side emerges victorious.
As part of the festivities, the in-game store will be updated with a number of limited-time offers. These will include packs containing Ultimate Premium Kegs, Mirror Shards, as well as winter-themed ornaments: titles, borders, avatars, and a special Christmas leader skin for Crach an Craite. A winter sale will also run during the event where select expansion-themed items will be available for 30% off, every weekend until January 6th.
