Wild Rift open beta launching in North America
As mentioned earlier, Wild Rift open beta is finally launching in North American on March 29.

The testing of a new feature known as Position Preference is currently underway, where you can queue up for all five roles. It will allow you to select your position in order of Preference. However, the position is not guaranteed.
New Items and Adjustments

- Thornmail: It can apply Grievous Wounds when you Immobilize your target.
- Winter’s Approach: Armor and turning it into the go-to item for when you want Ability Haste.
- Force of Nature: Force of Nature will be replacing Adaptive Helm.
- Frozen Heart: Use its aura to reduce nearby enemies’ Attack Speed and defend your team.
