No, don't play this garbage. They write all these reviews and articles for themselves, as a result, the system encourages noobs, they put professionals with noobs, which exhausts a sufficiently large number of nerves, you can raise your rank for a month and they put you noobs and you will lose everything in one day. They will wipe their feet on your time and your self-worth. Perhaps they have a problem with the players who play this garbage and therefore they put moderators to play with you, but at the same time they are stingy to spend on advertising to catch up with new traffic. They couldn't even make a referral system with coin rewards for skins. But! They cut Lux's skills, bravo! They don't have money for advertising but they have money to make a slop bucket out of Lux, congratulations! The creators are apparently noobs themselves and hate the professional community of players. Unfortunately, there are no alternatives to this game and I will have to say goodbye to this genre, it’s a pity, it’s a pity that DotA mobile doesn’t exist, it would be possible to tame the losers there that they came from wild rift. You should change the name from league of legends to league of noobs.

Is It Any Good?

The tactics, fast-paced play, and complexity of the classic PC game has miraculously been distilled into a portable experience that's a blast to play and almost impossible to put down. League of Legends: Wild Rift manages to take virtually everything from League of Legends and recreates it on the smaller screen for tablets and phones. Surprisingly, almost nothing feels lost or left out when it comes to the tactics or the gameplay. You'll still build a squad from a roster of characters with hopefully complimentary skills and pit them against either computer controlled or player-controlled opponents, with the goal being to destroy the Nexus at the center of your rival's base. Interestingly, thanks to the smaller, condensed map layouts, gameplay tends to be much faster than its PC older brother. The longest a match will run is around 30 minutes, meaning that while your team can sometimes recover from a mistake and win a round, it'll take a lot of effort and accuracy to make a comeback. This is possible thanks to the incredibly responsive touchscreen controls of Wild Rift, which are amazingly strong considering the PC version of the game is anchored by its mouse and keyboard play. Everything is laid out in a clean, easy to use format that will get even the newest player up and contributing to their team's success within seconds.

Making sure that it's easy to learn is important, because Wild Rift is still incredibly difficult to master. Players have to know the ins and outs of their characters skills, as well as what their opponents might throw at them so they can counter or respond to strikes in the middle of battle. They also have to have rock solid aim, and respond within milliseconds. It's even worse when some of your teammates potentially abandon you in the middle of battle to pursue their own goals, possibly leaving weaker characters at the mercy of enemies that mow through them quickly without support. But thanks to the mobile format, there isn't a lot of space or time for people to complain or give newcomers grief about their mistakes, making it a much easier environment for them to learn and improve. Plus, the shorter nature of each round means that you'll be able to leap into more battles, learning what characters can do, which can help you develop strategies to succeed in future fights. If you've ever wondered what the fuss about League of Legends has been all about, or have been intimidated by these kind of eSports titles, try out Wild Rift – you'll be surprised how you'll want to keep playing round after round of this action-packed game.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
