League of Legends: Wild Rift

League of Legends Wild Rift has received its first-ever update of 2021, which brought new champions, plenty of new features, and skins. Since the game is still under the closed beta testing phase, only a few regions can access the game servers.

From the content perspective, Wild Rift’s first official ranked season has begun, and players can grab Glorious Tryndamere upon reaching the Gold tier as a reward. In addition to this, Riot has also added some handy features like the Party Finder, a new latency indicator, and a slew of other gameplay improvements.

Here’s a look at the complete patch notes of Wild Rift Patch 2.0 update.

Game Systems

Ping Replies

Now you can let your teammates know you heard them with ping replies.

Dragon/Baron Respawn Timers

Spawn timers for epic monsters (Dragon and Baron Nashor) now display on the scoreboard. We’ve also made some minimap UI improvements.

Scoreboard Logic

No screen peeking! Enemy information on the scoreboard now updates only after players gain vision of enemies instead of in constant real-time.

New Emotes Wheel

You can now open the emotes wheel by holding down on your champ instead of clicking into the communications panel.

System Message UI

System messages no longer block players’ view of their own champion (i.e. failed surrender vote messages won’t obstruct vision during gameplay). Phew!

Detailed Stats

In the stats tab of the scoreboard, players can now see a more detailed breakdown of key stats, including exactly how much damage reduction (in percentage) their armor and magic resistance items provide, as well as the conversion from ability haste to cooldown reduction.

Tower Prioritization

Towers now prioritize targeting super minions over siege minions. Gotta take down those supers first.
