MOBA games have been successful on mobile devices for several years. And their popularity is off the charts there. It's amazing that big games like LoL and Dota still don't get ports and have to bite into huge chunks of the money pie.

 

But in LoL's case, the situation will soon change. Wild Rift, a sort of ported and optimized version of League of Legends for smartphones and tablets, is in the closed test. The official announcement was made in 2019, the release was scheduled for the end of October this year. But they didn't have time and were postponed to 2021.

 

True, there is a hint of good news. Open tests will be available for some European countries and possibly Russian players. In December it will be known whether or not a miracle will happen. But since OBT is sure to take place in Southeast Asia and has probably already started, you can search Google VPN Life Hacks and temporarily "move" to Asian servers to be among the first to hear about Riot Games' new creation.

 

What's new in Wild Rift? The control elements have changed, the surface is sharpened for the functions of the touchscreens. Some of the champion's abilities will be tweaked to make the game faster. The playing time is reduced to 15-20 minutes, which is quite logical: very few people want to sit with a smartphone in their hand for a full hour without being able to undress for at least a minute. There will also be new skins, animations and perhaps a special donation system. There won't be a cross-platform version, but the original LoL and Wild Rift are regularly updated and even receive appropriate events.
