League of Legends: Wild Rift, also popular in Romania
League of Legends is a MOBA game, a subgenre of strategy video games, in which each player controls a single character with a unique skill set that improves during a game and contributes to the overall strategy of the team. Two teams, each with five players each, fight to reach the final goal and destroy the opponent’s base, located in the opposite corner of the battlefield. Wild Rift is a LoL experience rebuilt from scratch and optimized for mobile devices. The game comes with a set of dual-stick touch controls and a new map called Wild Rift.
The competitive Wild Rift scene in Romania is in full swing, with competitions held locally by Samsung and Digital Crusade, in partnership with Riot Games. Teams like One Tap, number 1 in Romania and 150 worldwide, also stood out at European level in the Origin Series and Wild Rift Championship tournaments organized by ESL.
