|The Great Snowball Fight of the Gods|
This is the area where the battles between two teams of 4 players take place; it uses an altered version of Anvil Rock. During this quest you will be under the effect of Godly Yuletide, and dead players are resurrected at a shrine every 30 seconds. The mission's objective is to kill the opposing team's beacons, and protect yours. When you kill a Champion or a General you will receive a Morale Boost. You can teleport between your beacons, but you will suffer from the Portal Sickness effect. At the 16th minute mark everyone receives the Haste of the Gods effect and at 6th minute mark Fury of the Gods comes into effect. If no team manages to destroy both enemy beacons after 30 minutes, the team with the most points wins; you get 1 point for each enemy champion and 5 points for each beacon killed.
