League of Legends: Wild Rift has finally reached the Open Beta Test (OBT). The LoL: Wild Rift OBT starts on October 28th. LoL fans have been anticipating this game since early 2020. Riot uses League of Legends Worlds 2020 and K/DA to boost the launch. Surely, it was a success.
Along with the OBT launch, Riot prepared a cinematic trailer for LoL: Wild Rift. LoL: Wild Rift cinematic trailer features some of the most iconic LoL champions like Jinx, Lux, Yasuo, Blitzcrank, and many more. With Van Halen “You Really Got Me” as background music and some cool animations, the trailer is dope.
Words on Wild Rift Open Beta Testing
For me, LoL: Wild Rift is a good game. I feel like it’s more robust than its competitor for mobile MOBA, Arena of Valor, and Mobile Legends. The reason is that this game focuses on the gameplay more. You don’t need to grind arcana and emblems to boost your early stats. Moreover, skin doesn’t give you stat bonuses. You just need to play and git gud.
Although, sorry to say, the best mobile MOBA for me is still Vainglory. But, sadly the game is dead now. If I were to play mobile MOBA now, I’d choose Wild Rift over the others. However, I’m pretty sad after Riot says that they won’t release tap control for the game. Another good thing is that Wild Rift champions stay true to the original LoL, having 4 skills and 2 spells.
The only issue I’m facing now is connection issue. The game could become very laggy at some point, especially when I play with East Asia player. Some people are also having login issue, but I’ve never experienced it myself. We hope Riot will fix this before the game officially drops.
Next, you need to know that Wild Rift OBT is only available in Southeast and East Asia. Europe and other parts of Asia will get the game in December, meanwhile America, in 2021. Riot says it’s because of the pandemic, so the teams in other regions could not follow the procedure to launch the game earlier.
