Wild Rift‘s lead designer Brian “FeralPony” Feeney will also be on deck for an interview about the mobile MOBA.
FeralPony previously talked about Wild Rift in a dev diary. The design lead mentioned that a large part of the champion roster would receive overhauls to their kits since certain champions won’t translate well to the touchscreen. A large emphasis was placed on making sure that champions retained their style from League on PC despite the transition.
Wild Rift was initially slated for a release in early 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the game to late 2020. Alpha and beta tests are still expected to drop throughout the year, with the first “very limited alpha test” to take place next month in Brazil and the Philippines.

Dot Esports previously had the opportunity to play a beta version of Wild Riftin October 2019. The user interface then was largely non-existent, but the gameplay was smooth and faithful with several familiar mechanics brought over from its parent game. Then, about 40 champions were available for selection, including Ahri, Jinx, and Master Yi.
Wild Rift also drew inspiration from the various mobile MOBAs that have cropped up over the years, such as reducing level caps and having sympathy gold for missed last hits.
The map will also differ significantly from Summoner’s Rift. Each base is going to be more barren than League‘s. Inhibitor turrets and inhibitors themselves have been combined into one building, while the Nexus turrets are missing. The items on offer in the shop have been significantly reduced as well.
The most important thing to note is that Wild Rift is a new game. Aside from honed skills, there’s no crossplay or progress carried over from its parent game. Veteran players will receive some bonus rewards if they use their associated Riot accounts, however.
The Summer Games Fest is a three-month announcement series hosted by Twitch. Aside from Riot’s mobile MOBA, it’s set to feature a variety of game developers such as CD PROJEKT RED, Square Enix, and Blizzard. It’s an online replacement for the tons of video game conventions that have been canceled due to the ongoing pandemic.
The Free Fire All-Stars (FFAA) 2020 event has been introduced by Garena. The tournament will be held on June 12 and 13 and will feature an $80,000 prize pool Riot to reveal gameplay. Top players and influencers from India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam will be participating.
The event has been divided into the “Influencer All-Stars” and the “Pros All-Stars.”
The Influencer All-Stars event will be held on June 12 and will have a $30,000 prize pool. Each of the four regions will be represented by three teams. These teams will have a mixture of influencers and professional players.
The Pros All-Stars event will be played on June 13. Three of the best professional esports teams from each of the four regions will lock horns for a share of the $50,000 prize pool.
The format of the tournament for both events will remain the same. The 12 participating teams will compete over six rounds in all three maps of Free Fire: Bermuda, Purgatory, and Kalahari. Points will be awarded to teams based on their rankings and kills. Winning a match grants 20 points while two points are awarded for each kill. The team with the most points at the end of six matches will be crowned the winner. Garena will also be ranking each of the four regions based on the points their teams secure to determine the best region.
All of the matches will be streamed online in multiple languages. Garena will be releasing more information in the coming weeks through the game’s official Facebook page.
