The 2021 edition of League of Legends’ One for All game mode is returning with the Space Groove event. Here’s everything you need to know.
One For All is a limited-time 5v5 game mode in League of Legends where all the players from each team pick the same champion and go against each other in the Summoner’s Rift.
Ever since its release back in 2013, One for All game mode quickly grabbed players’ attention and became one of the most beloved game modes in League of Legends. Last season, One for All returned as a rotating mode after a two-year break with a pre-champion balance like ARAM and URF.
Now, One for All is again making its return as the next rotating game mode in LoL after the ARURF, with new entries like Viego, Seraphine, Rell, and Samira.
One for All 2021 Start and End Date
One for All is going to return on the Summoner’s Rift with the Coven 2021 event and it will start from LoL patch 11.16, August 12, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. PT.
One for All game mode will be available throughout the whole event and it will end on September 13, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. PT.
How it works
One for All has both the ban phase and vote phase. During the ban phase, all the players will have the chance to ban the champions they hate to face. However, the voting phase is a bit different.
Starting from 2020, the majority pick (3 votes) no longer automatically determines the champion. Currently, if 4 players vote for the same champion only then it will automatically win the vote. Meaning if three players pick the same champion, the other two players who voted different champion will now have a chance to have their champions on the game.
Furthermore, if there’s no clear majority in the voting phase, one random champion will be assigned from the votes.
Last year, Karthus and Teemo were disabled from the One for All game mode, so, it is very likely that they will remain disabled in 2021 as well.
