League of Legends : Black Market Brawlers, new game mode !
It’s that time again. :D We’ve been hard at work on this one and can’t wait for you guys to get crackin’ in the next featured game mode, “Black Market Brawlers”. This is one of our most complex FGMs to date, with multiple mechanics and a treasure trove of new content to absorb. So buckle in and let’s break it down.

“Black Market Brawlers” featured game mode live soon on PBE (Source)

Black Market Brawlers

TL;DR: Purchase illegal Black Market items and use golden Krakens to recruit new brawler minions as you vie for dominance on Summoner’s Rift!

Players: 5v5
Map: Summoner’s Rift
Pick type: Blind Draft



Golden Krakens are a new currency you’ll earn to spend on hiring and upgrading your brawler minion.

Earn and spend Krakens to hire the brawler minion of your choice, then upgrade them however you want.

Krakens are acquired by:

  • Every 60sec = 1 Kraken
  • 1 kill = 2 Krakens
  • 1 assist = 1 Kraken
  • Baron/Dragon = 1 Kraken per team member (5 total)
  • Counter jungling a large monster = 1 Kraken

Destroying an inhibitor won’t summon a Siege Minion but instead, dramatically buff all the Brawlers in that lane.

The Brawlers:

There are four types of brawler minions. Each game you will spend Krakens you’ve earned to hire one brawler minion type of your choice, then upgrade him as you see fit throughout the game. Once hired, your brawler will replace a regular minion and spawn in every wave of all 3 lanes for the rest of the game. Each brawler minion has 3 upgrade paths (Abilities, Attack & Defense) you can pursue to customise them how you want. Upgrades can be purchased from the new “Brawlers” tab in the item shop at fountain using Krakens.

Known issues:

  • Some placeholder SFX
  • Some Trickster's Glass particles still buggy. Working on it!

We’re looking forward to seeing the outcomes of a mode as deep as this one. Do you hire brawler minions that enhance your team’s strengths ("Let’s get some Ironbacks so we can siege down towers!") or exploit the enemy team’s weaknesses ("they have terrible wave clear.. Razorfin rush!"). The Black Market items will also completely change champ viability for multiple roles. I’m sure you guys will find crazy new combos/synergy that we haven’t even thought of! o.O

Please report any bugs you find in here. As always, thanks for helping us test PBE guys. ^_^
