* different biomes as they appear in League (ex. deserts of Shurima)
** With weather effects like a rainy spring or windy desert (note: im aware of some graphics issues with weather particles)
*** on that tangent differnt seasons of Summoners Rift that differentiates from the holiday versions.
* The Glade

I think the best choices would be those thematically tied to Runeterra. Not only could they be cool, but they'd be useable for any future events, like another Noxus vs Ionia, played on an Ionian themed map. This makes them interesting and gives them longevity. After that would be seasonal variants, allowing for maps to be cycled every few months. After that would be things for fun, like the underwater or void variants.

BUT. If I could only ask for one change. One anything. One thing to make me eternally happy. All I would ask is that poros be able to migrate from the Howling Abyss to Summoners Rift. That is all.

Building off of the post that I see RIGHT above me...not just different biomes overall...but different biomes ON THE SAME MAP. Top lane could be deserty (cuz, yaknow, top lane) and bot lane could be snowy etc. Wouldn't make sense, necessarily, but could be very cool.

Definitely a winter theme that porofies the jungle camps.

Arcade Skin (with a sort of 'Rainbow Road' feel from Mario Kart)

...actually never mind... my eyes would hurt too much from that...

Demacia / Noxus themed.
Void theme (Can have space elements)
Arcade theme (lots of cool lights!)
New Years themed (depending on the year, could be Zodiac influenced for Chinese New Year)
Up in Heaven Theme (clouds instead of bushes?)
Oriental Themed (or something to do with ninjas)
Raining / Snowing effects would be cool additions too. I also enjoyed interactables like the Urf ghost during the Harrowing.

I also think that it would be cool if you changed the appearance of the jungle camps for the map skins ! Even if it's something as simple as giving Baron a Santa hat or a mask for halloween.

I would love a rift that is located in the mountain peaks, up in the clouds. Mt. Targon feeling to it.
An example would be all the trees in the rift would be replaced with an open gap that looks like you will fall to you death

Beach summoners rift. It would be epic once we get 10 Pool Party skins.

Summoners rift at night. Like the color scheme of TT.

Really just want the winter one though.

Noxus: I imagine Noxus as being like Kazas from the Legend of Dragoon

882665

where it is a very dark and foreboding local that one doesnt wish to return to as it leaves a lingering feeling of dread.

Will Update with more soon.
