Now that League of Legends Wild Rift is available in most countries around the world, it has been taking over as the best mobile MOBA game in the market. If you are one such active player, then you really need to know the details of the Wild Rift Patch Note 2.0 Update.
Today, Riot Games has just revealed details about the Wild Rift Patch Note 2.0, and it is a massive update to the game bringing five new champions and lots of new features alongside balance changes. Let’s dig deep and find out every detail about the Wild Rift Patch Note 2.0 Update.
Not just one or two, but a total of five new champions has been announced to be added to the game in the Wild Rift January Update.
Don’t be fooled by the looks for Corki. This champion is a marksman with a twist, which mostly takes care of the Middle lane. It’s one of the best Pick for the Middle lane and deals mixed damage. However, it’s not quite easy for a beginner to get used to it.
Kennen is a specialist champion that plays in Baron Lane. It’s a mage that usually goes solo. The champion can deal with massive magic damage and has crowd control abilities.
Tristana is one of the most easy to play champions. It’s a Markman that is played in the Dragon Lane as a carry. Though it’s easy to play but that doesn’t mean it’s a weak champion; it deals mostly physical damage and is capable of taking down the entire enemy team..
Lulu is an enchanter champion played as support in the Dragon lane. It’s not a famous champion but can deal a good amount of magic damage. It’s overall a reliable pick.
Teemo is another specialist champion that plays in baron lane. It’s another marksman that likes to play solo. It can deal massive magic damage to the enemies and is relatively easy to play with.
In addition to the new champions, the Wild Rift Patch Note 2.0 Update will bring lots of new features to the game. Riot Games has mentioned these new features in Patch Notes 2.0.
1. PARTY FINDER
Matchmaking is currently a headache in Wild Rift. But Riot Games has now introduced the Party Finder Feature, which means that players can get into premade games. Party owners can make their lobbies and make it available for their friends as well as for the public. On the other hand, other players can look for open lobbies and join them.
2. LATENCY INDICATORS
The earlier latency indication on the homepage of the wild rift wasn’t accurate. Therefore Riot Games has replaced it with a network indicator that shows what kind of network the player is on (Wifi, 4G, etc.), plus a new-in-game indicator of the player’s actual ping gameplay.
3. SOCIAL SHARING
After the new update, players can now share the end-game scoreboard and personal performance directly on social media via simple clicks. The social sharing features also let’s the player share season rank, win streak, new champs, new skins, etc.
4. MAP DESCRIPTION
Players can now get more familiar with the map by exploring the Wild Rift map in detail. Read up on jungle monsters, epic monsters, plants, and structures at your leisure.
5. TUTORIAL OPTIMIZATION
Performance-improving tutorials can now be prompted based on a player’s gameplay. The developers have also made some visual updates to the tutorial, and the first champion unlocks the screen.
6. CHAMPION MASTERY EMOTES
Riot has introduced a way to the ultimate flex. Players will now unlock a mastery emote by reaching master level five with a champ, which can then be equipped to use it like any other emote in-game.
