The First Season of Wild Rift Esports Is Here
Last month, Riot Games announced the first official season of Wild Rift Esports during a live stream dedicated to telling all the great news and upgrades that League of Legends is going to go through this upcoming year. After ending season zero, the game's creators decided that this season is going to feature eight regional competitions that are meant to filter out the best competitors and teams who have what it takes to qualify for international events and win the title of world champions.
Leo Faria, the head of Wild Rift Esports, announced this great news during the latest League of Legends premiere. This article is meant to review all the announcements made and the competition calendar for the rest of 2022. Keep reading to find out more about this.
The first competitions consist of regional championships in all continents, which began in late January and are going to continue until May.
The following continents and regions are going to be the ones that get to compete in the next set of tournaments for season one.
- North America
- Latin America
- Europe + Middle East + Africa
- Mainland China
- South Korea
- Southeast Asia + Oceania
The regional competitions are meant for talented teams to prove they have what's needed to qualify for the Wild Rift ICONS Global Championship, which is going to be held in Europe this summer.
This final championship is going to have the most challenging level of gaming ever seen in these types of tournaments, which is meant to challenge the best gamers in the world to prove themselves worthy of winning the title of Wild Rift World Champion.
However, only eight teams are going to qualify from these regional tournaments. Other 16 can fight for their place through the Play-Ins stage.
Riot Games hasn't announced any official awards, but they mentioned a Glorious Tryndamere skin for those exceptional gamers who finish the season ranking Gold or above.
You might get a little reward if you participated in season zero of these games. Those gamers who reached the gold tier and won at least 10 games are going to get rewarded with an emblem for their profile to brag about their fantastic gaming skills.
However, keep in mind that ranks are going to be reset as this new season starts, but it is going to be a "soft rank reset." Nonetheless, gamers aren't going to be able to use the ranked mode for around three or four hours during the transition from season to season.
Whether you decide to participate in this season or watch your favorite teams compete for the big prize, you're sure to have a lot of fun while doing it.
Riot Games isn't going to stop surprising us with important announcements, and 2022 is barely starting, so if you want to always be ahead of every new update on this new Wild Rift season, please keep an eye on the rest of our page. You aren't going to regret it.
