Earlier this week, Riot Games revealed that Wild Rift China Server would be released with new content specifically created for Chinese players. The devs promised faster progression in the game, allowing Chinese players to unlock champions much quicker and help them keep up with other servers. Devs have also confirmed the release of Irelia for the global server and Wild Rift China, but have yet to announce the release date for the server. However, it is likely just around the corner considering the fact that the Chinese servers for Wild Rift have been in the works for quite some time now.

Riot Games has released a new dev diary on the Wild Rift China Server. The Alpha Test will be available for only a short period before the server is permanently launched in China.

New Tutorials

The devs will be tweaking the tutorials in the LoL WR to help Chinese players speed up their progress and dive into public games as soon as possible. 

Mini-Community Section

The devs have also added a mini-community section in the game where players can browse through community-made game guides and champion builds.

Player Behavior Rating System

This new system is aimed to minimize toxicity among players. The system will monitor players and rate their behavior in the game. If your rating is too low, you will be locked out of normal and ranked games until you can raise your rating back to normal.

This feature will allow players of the same team to swap their pick sequence or champions during ranked games. This means that if you want to be the last player to pick a champion, you can request a swap with the 5th player and switch order with them without sacrificing your role.

Ranked Games

During the alpha test, the Chinese server of LoL WR will only offer ranked games at specific times, but normal games can be played at any time.

Other Game Modes

The devs are open to suggestions from the community and will look into adding more game modes over the course of the alpha test.

Trial Skins

The devs will also be implementing trial skins in the game. This allows players to temporarily own skins before they can decide if they want to unlock it permanently.

Wild Rift Academy is a special event in Wild Rift geared for newcomers. Players can learn to play the game and earn some rewards by completing simple objectives in the Wild Rift academy. It is usually the first event that new players will encounter in the mobile MOBA.

Similar to the global version, the Chinese version of the game will also have Wild Rift Academy for newcomers.

Wild Rift Global Updates

Riot Games will be posting a separate dev diary at the end of May 2021 regarding the upcoming content for Wild Rift globally.

It is still unclear whether the new features from the Chinese Server will be implemented in other servers of LoL WR. Players will have to keep their eyes peeled for the upcoming Dev Diary for Patch 2.3.
