Riot prepares for Pride with new League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 2.2c



Pride Month is just around the corner, even in League of Legends.

What you need to know

  • League of Legends: Wild Rift is the popular MOBA, but on mobile.
  • Riot Games is getting into the spirit of Pride Month with Patch 2.2c
  • New colors, emotes, icons, and two new events are hitting the game in June.

Riot Games’ latest release, League of Legends: Wild Rift, takes the popular competitive MOBA and turns it into one of the best Android games out there. During this open beta phase, updates to the game come along regularly, tweaking the game play as the developers get used to the new mobile format differences from PC and take in community feedback The latest changes have come through in League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 2.2c.

While full information has not yet been released on the upcoming events, they have announced Pride and Jubilant Colors both coming on May 24. To prepare for Pride Month in June, they also have released Pride 2021 emotes, the Rainbows For All Homeguard Trails, and a Rainbow Poro icon.

The company is still working to even out the playing field amongst its champions with some attack and stats changes to the versus modes as well as to ARAM mode. This is to be expected since developers are still learning how champions end up playing in real games through the beta period. The usual free-to-play champion rotations for the month have also been announced.

This is an experimental change and may be changed again in the future if it doesn’t provide the desired results.
