There was a time when smartphone gaming was only casual. However, as smartphones started evolving, things changed. With more powerful processors and affordability, smartphone gaming is now being taken seriously. League Of Legends is known as one of the greatest multiplayer online battle arena games for PC. And just this year, the game went official for smartphones with the name League of Legends: Wild Rift. I recently started playing Wild Rift, and I am blown away with its similarity with the original version. If you’re familiar with the original game, you should know that LoL is very competitive. There are tournaments happening every now and then. And now, it’s time Wild Rift gets its first-ever official international tournament.
