What competitive model for LoL: Wild Rift?

It is still too early to talk about a real competitive scene. However, Riot Games is very good at organising competitions. Whether with League of Legends, Valorant or Teamfight Tactics, it is able to attract investors and spectators. So there is no reason why LoL: Wild Rift, which shares a lot in common with the classic League of Legends game, should be left out.

Two main models exist in the world ofesport. A circuit model (CS:GO) with several independent events and a regular league model (Overwatch). LoL: Wild Rift is still young and has time to reflect. But be sure that Riot Games is already planning its strategy.
