Wild Rift: Things you NEED to know
LoL Wild Rift is well underway, with
Philippines and Brazil being the very first to playtest LoL on mobile,
how crazy is that? For the rest of us, we'll need to wait a while longer. For now, let's answer some of those burning questions you have
about the game.
Riot Games is well underway to publish another app on the mobile stores, with League of Legends Wild Rift coming very soon to a Google Play Store near you! So, you have questions and we have answers. Let's discuss some frequently asked questions and the things you NEED to know about Wild Rift before it launches.
LoL Wild Rift when?
Good question! Riot Games provided a Q&A style blog post on their decision making behind Wild Rift, so you can expect Wild Rift to only have a handful of Summoner's on the Rift during testing times and phases.
"The test will be pretty small this time around, but we’re going to be randomly selecting from players who have pre-registered for Wild Rift on Google Play! On June 6-8, servers will only be available from 6pm - 10pm each day as we confirm the game's stability."
If you need to see some Alpha footage of Wild Rift, we've got a great video just for you!

What champions will be on Wild Rift?
So far, there are 36 champions confirmed, a dramatic difference from its bigger brother League of Legends, who has over 148 champions, and there is a good reason for this.
Wild Rift was build from the ground up with mobile in mind. Therefore, the original champions themselves needed to be completely reworked for mobile, with some dramatic changes in champion abilities. And no, Riot Games has no plans to port these mobile reworks to the League of Legends server, sorry folks.
An important note here is that there are no other ways to get into this current Alpha and Beta without an invite, with Riot Games making an official statement on the matter:
Why Wild Rift on mobile?
Now, I know what you're thinking, why on earth would Riot Games want to develop LoL for mobile? Well, if you've been living under a rock, Riot Games have expanded dramatically in several months. They're not only known for League of Legends anymore, oh no, there's also something even bigger, you know, that little game called Valorant? Yeah, that one.
League of Legends is heading to mobile because it has an untapped potential of, well, just heading to mobile. Not only that, but Riot Games is owned by Tencent, who has an absolutely incredible amount of games in China and the rest of the world, so it seems only natural to capitalize on revenue while also offering a unique experience for new and existing players.
And that about does it for things you need to know! and some FAQ's we've seen floating around the League of Legends community. If you need even more information on Wild Rift, we've got you covered!
