MOBAs are nothing new. They aren't even new to me. I've played just about every MOBA there is (mobile or otherwise) with varying amounts of time investment, with my previous favorites being Vainglory and Arena of Valor. But League of Legends: Wild Rift just isn't like those games.

Despite being in the same genre, the pace of play and strategy of this mobile MOBA is unique and deep unto itself. Even after reviewing Wild Rift, I've reached several ephiphanies while playing, and each one has transformed my understanding of the game and how to play it. These breakthroughs are exciting, but they take patience, persistence--and sometimes even research--to realize, especially if you aren't super well-versed in MOBAs in general.
