League of Legends: Wild Rift provides players with different map formations and a smaller array of playable characters!
Riding the Waves with Wild Rift!
League of Legends (LoL) has been considered to be one of the most prominent and leading online games out there by gamers all around the world. The gaming community has been following this MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) since its release back in October 2009.
Just 11 years after the online video game’s debut, Riot Games (video game developer of League of Legends and Valorant) released the mobile version of League of Legends: League of Legends: Wild Rift!
League of Legends old-timers and newbies have dabbled in its mobile variant (Wild Rift), instantly loving this version for its portability. The idea of allowing gamers to play in just about any place that they are in evokes an automatic thumbs-up from them.
Wild Rift exhibits an akin aesthetic and concept to its mother game, with the familiar Summoner’s Rift and Howling Abyss maps and the incorporation of the same characters such as Jinx, Yasuo, Lux, Ahri, Garen, and many more.
However, there is that difference between the two versions of the MOBA game that allows the mobile version to have its own twists and turns to it!
Wild Rift and League of Legends: The Contrast
In reference to an article by Screen Rant, League of Legends: Wild Rift is a mobile MOBA game that delves into the concept of co-op gaming. Two teams of five players fight and clash with each other to achieve their ultimate goal: to destroy the enemy’s nexus. This makes it just as comparable to its predecessor, League of Legends!
A major difference between the two, though, is the usage of mobile controls for Wild Rift. League of Legends being an online PC game, in the obvious sense, utilizes a keyboard that’s connected to a desktop. Wild Rift makes use of the touch screens of mobile phones, incorporating in-game buttons for players to maneuver around the Wild Rift maps.
Because of the compression of the LoL game into its mobile version, the gameplay time has also shortened from a standard rate of 30-40 minutes to 15-20 minutes. Wild Rift players are able to select from a wide array of champions (albeit, not as much as the amount of champions in the PC version); however, these champions have all been tweaked to better suit mobile gameplay.
League of Legends’s standard maps, Summoner’s Rift and Howling Abyss, have two turrets surrounding a team’s nexus and three turrets on the outer rims of a team’s base for protection against the enemy team.
Wild Rift, on the other hand, doesn’t surround its nexuses with turrets and leaves it as is with only the three turrets on the outer rims as a team’s only protective layer in its base. This essentially cuts down on the longer playtime players have when playing the PC version.
