Black Market Brawlers is a seasonal game mode that first appeared during the Bilgewater Burning Tides lore event. A Summoner's Rift 5v5 variant, it includes new items and special minions for hire using Krakens, a unique in-game currency. Its initial run went from July 30th, 2015 to August 10th, 2015, and enabled players to team up and earn rewards during the event. It also sparked a broadcasted showmatch including NA LCS casters and crew.
