5 reasons Mobile Legends players are switching to League of Legends Wild Rift

As we already know, Mobile Legends has grown rapidly since 2021. Moonton, as the developer of the Mobile Legends game, has made various developments to reach the MOBA market in Indonesia. Project NEXT Mobile Legends Bang Bang has become an example of the success of this game.

Some time ago, Riot Games surprised the League of Legends (LoL) community in Indonesia with the release of its mobile version League of Legends: Wild Rift. This is sure to be tough competition for Mobile Legends considering how big Riot Games is in the world of gaming and esports.

Because of the same genre, many Indonesian Mobile Legends players have started moving to Wild Rift. Although it’s still in beta, several esports teams have also started forming a Wild Rift division, starting with BOOM Esports, Bigetron Esports, and ending with the Morph Team.

League of Legends is considered the most popular MOBA game with the most players in the world. This game itself has been running for about 11 years and its popularity hasn’t diminished either.

Based on 2021 data, League of Legends is reported to have 8 million simultaneous players playing every day.

What made League of Legends so popular? Of course, there are many elements that influence this. But of course the gameplay and features are designed to always meet the needs of the fans. Riot Games is known as one of the developers who care about their community.

While Mobile Legends itself is only popular in Asia. No wonder players are looking to switch to Wild Rift, which has the potential to grab the attention of the whole world.

As proof, the 2021 World Championship League of Legends managed to break the record with a total audience of 99.6 million people. Not to mention that LoL is known as a tournament with a huge prize pool.

Because of this, many esports organizations have started looking for new players to prepare a mature Wild Rift team. It is natural for Mobile Legends players who haven’t had a chance to shine yet for the chance to become a Wild Rift pro gamer.

5. New challenges

Wild Rift is a copy of League of Legends, indirectly this mobile version of the game doesn’t have many changes in terms of skills and gameplay.

Leauge of Legends itself is known for its in-game mechanism, which is much more difficult than Mobile Legends. Fall gets more complicated as there are four skills for each champion, the protection system and the last hit system, buying items to equip them with, and others.

All of these things are sure to be a new challenge for Mobile Legends players.
