The game currently only supports the Singapore region, but you can download the game’s APK file via the link below this article and use some VPN to access and experience this game early.
Introduce about Legends of Runeterra
As you probably know, besides Dota, League of Legends is one of the most popular MOBA games in the world right now. Riot Games has created a quality game that attracts hundreds of millions of players across many countries. Besides, it also built a large universe revolving around the champions in the game. Each champion has its own biography, legend and they have a special relationship with each other. Players not only care about skills, tactics, ranking matches, but they also care about the stories about their favorite champions. Did you feel excited to read about the battle between Zed and Shen, or be curious about Riven’s biography?
Many people want Riot to develop other games based on the LOL universe, giving them the opportunity to explore the mentioned lands such as Iolia, Demacia, Noxus. However, they still only focus on developing their “biological” game. It was not until the 10th anniversary of the development of League of Legends that they announced a number of projects expanded from this game, including movies, role-playing games, shooting, tactics, cards. Legends of Runeterra is one of those projects, though it is not as interested in players like two games League of Legends: Wild Rift and Teamfight Tactics Mobile.
How to play Legends of Runeterra
In terms of gameplay, Legends of Runeterra has gameplay inspired by Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. At its core, it’s not much different from classic card games on mobile. You and your opponent, in turn, summon cards to destroy the opponent’s Noxus. Each Noxus has a starting HP of 20, if it’s zero, you lose the match.
In turn, you and the opponent have the role of Attack or Defense, who has Attack Token has the right to attack and move before the opponent. When you are the attacker, set up a set of cards with the aim of attacking the opponent’s Noxus. Meanwhile, defensive players will rely on the opponent’s cards to devise reasonable tactics to stop them. Use cards to block the opponent’s cards, do not let them destroy your Noxus.
A round consists of two stages, including the summoning of cards and the use of cards. You summon the cards in the queue. At the end of the Round, place the cards you have summoned on the battlefield. If you don’t have enough cards to block the opponent, they have a chance to attack your Noxus directly.
When both players pass (skip a turn) or run out of mana, the round ends. Your mana is restored and after that, you start a new Round. With a card game, you need to consider the mana in each round of your match. It is a deciding factor on how many cards you can draw and directly affects your strategy. The stronger and rarer the card is, the more mana consumed. Initially, you can skip some low mana cards to find some better cards.
Discover the lands of League of Legends
Legends of Runeterra not only attract players in the exciting card game, through the process of playing and collecting cards, you also have the opportunity to explore the vast lands in League of Legends. The cards are champions from 6 regions, including Piltover & Zaun, Noxus, Freljord, Demacia, Ionia and the Shadow Isles. You will join on an adventure with your favorite champion, discover stories and biographies about their hometowns.
According to the role in the match, the card is divided into three categories including Champion, Spell and Skill. In it, Champion cards are the core to help you win. In fact, Legends of Runeterra originally only gave you some default cards. Over time, you collect new cards, so your tactics become more diverse. Besides, the Champion cards have the ability to level up, helping to increase his stats. For example, Garen, he will level up after attacking twice.
About rarity, the cards are also divided into several categories such as Common, Rare, Epic and Legend. The rarer the card is, the stronger it is and offers many effects to help you win.
Each card displays the information you need to care about, including Card Name, Skill/Effect, Attack, Defense, Mana consumed. Only, Spell cards consume Spell Mana (you have 3 Spell Mana next to the original Mana, displayed by three dots).
The champions appear in this game
Currently, Legends of Runeterra has only 24/148 champions in League of Legends. This is just a Beta version, so it is difficult to ask more than that number. But I think it is enough for you to implement thousands of different tactics. Here is a list of champions that appear in the game:
Certainly, in the next updated versions, Riot will bring you other champions like Sylas, Irelia, Jax, Master Yi, … Don’t miss out!
Like League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra also has two game modes including Normal and Ranking. Catching will start in Iron IV and in turn win to Improve your ranking.
The graphics of Legends of Runeterra really impressed me from the first time I played. Game screens, cards, champions, effects, everything is very well designed. Each time you perform a skill, you experience a series of slow-motion effects. This feature will get you excited, but when you play for a long time, it becomes wordy and redundant.

Overall, Legends of Runeterra is a card game that helps you find new experiences when you feel “tired” with your teammates at Summoner’s Rift. The game can both entertain you and make you feel “headache” with thousands of different tactics. Believe me, you will be addicted to it the same way you are addicted to Teamfight Tactics.
