Top Esports is the favorite to win the tournament at 13/8. Fans can also pick up odds of 71/ on JD Gaming and/or 28/15 on DAMWON Gaming, while Suning’s at 8/1.
Wild Rift began sending invites for the closed beta on October 8 but some of the players who pre-registered on Android will be added as well. South Korea and Japan were chosen as test regions due to the distance between them and the other countries originally chosen. All countries are pretty close to each other in proximity, which will allow Riot Games to focus their testing on a smaller group of servers.
Getting into the closed beta isn’t very straightforward, however. You’d have to be in one of the above regions and would have had to pre-register for Wild Rift on Google Play. Riot will be selecting players from the list of persons who’ve pre-registered and there’s not much you could do to enhance your chances.
There are also some hardware requirements. It’s hoped that Wild Rift will be playable on multiple devices but, as things stand, you’re going to need a phone or tablet with a 4-core CPU boasting 1.5Ghz or higher, 1.5GB RAM, and a resolution of 1280 x 720.
