New Champions in League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 2.0 update
5 Yordle champions are arriving in the game in this update. Let’s get into the details of the champions being introduced.
Corki – The Daring BombRider (Marksman)
Corki is much more than just a magnificent mustache, which he looks like. The Daring Bombardier often ventures beyond Bandle City in pursuit of aerospace innovation found only in the inventive city of Piltover. He can help you keep a watchful eye on the sky for enemy bogies as the head of the Screaming Yipsnakes.
Kennen – The Heart Of Tempest (Mage)
Dedicated to preserving the sacred balance that surges through Ionia, Kennen uses his centuries of knowledge to protect the world he’s come to love. But as the Heart of the Tempest, he also possesses the devastating power of the storm, which can be of great advantage for the players.
Lulu – The Fae Sorceress (Support)
Lulu, the Fae Sorceress shapes the world to her whim as she travels Runeterra with her fairy friend, Pix. Through her magic, Lulu enchants and fantastifies everything around her, sometimes with disastrous consequences.
Teemo – The Swift Scout (Marksman)
Anyone who underestimates the power of the Scout’s code in the game must contend with Teemo, one of Bandle City’s most formidable protectors. Though small in stature, the Swift Scout does not shrink in the face of big danger. Instead, he travels the world with boundless optimism and courage, seeking to earn every merit badge.
Tristana – The Yordle Gunner (Marksman)
Few inhabitants of Bandle City are lured by the promise of adventure in Runeterra quite like Tristana. Inspired by tales of epic battles and brave fighters, Tristana knew she was destined for a life of explosive action. With plenty of firepower in tow thanks to her trusty cannon Boomer, the Yordle Gunner seeks to become the stuff of legends.
New Features in League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 2.0 update
This feature will allow the players to create their own team before starting a game. Party owners can make their lobbies public by clicking the option on the top right corner of the lobby screen. Players can even find their desired type of lobby by filtering their search.
A New latency indicator has been included which can be seen in game too. The indicator displays ping along with the type of network the player is using. Earlier, this was on the homepage of the game. But due to accuracy issues, Riot has replaced it with a network indicator to show what kind of network you’re on (WiFi, 4G, etc.).
To make the players familiar with the lay of the land, a new map description feature has been added in the game. Players can get all the information like map structure, jungler monster, epic monsters, etc.
