First of all, if you don’t know what League of Legends is, we refer you to our article on this famous title by Riot Games. Read that first, and then come back here! Because in this new piece from Gameplify, we explore the innovative 2v2v2v2 Arena game mode! With a vast roster of champions and new ones always on the way, becoming an expert on each of them may seem like a titanic challenge. But thanks to this unique training ground mode, you can quickly master them, making the most of their abilities. The following lines will help you become a champion and enjoy an exciting gaming experience!
That’s right! According to Forbes, this game has created so many champions with vast abilities and tactics that it makes new players quite reluctant to learn the mechanics of the game. With a total of 164 champions, and many more to come, there is a lot to learn before becoming an expert with each of them. Not to mention that unlocking all of them can cost quite a bit, unless you have Xbox Game Pass!
That sounds like a fantastic solution to unveil the secrets of each champion: the new 2v2v2v2 game mode. It’s simply the answer to your prayers!
Well, okay, maybe it won’t solve the problem of unlocking champions, but the Arena is the ultimate training ground to master the skills of every hero. If you’ve just unlocked a new champion, avoid ruining matches on Summoner’s Rift by causing chaos for your poor team just because you don’t know what each ability does. Instead, dive into the Arena! Here, in just a few minutes, you’ll become an expert in every ability of your hero.
At the beginning, your opponents might let you try only a couple of abilities. However, after a few rounds in the fun “auto-battle” style format, you’ll be at the peak of your abilities and always ready for the fight. In no time, you’ll discover how to unleash winning combos, and soon enough, you’ll feel comfortable and ready to try out the craziest strategies in battles.
As the game progresses, you will be able to experience all the different stages of hero empowerment. It won’t be like playing a traditional game of League of Legends, but it comes pretty close. Nevertheless, having the opportunity to practice for the final battles with a time commitment of just 15 minutes is a godsend!
In my first game, I picked up a champion that I hadn’t played in years, and after just a few rounds, I felt as confident as if I had never stopped using them. Then, thanks to Xbox Game Pass, I tried a hero I knew very little about, and it took me half of the Arena to really figure out how to use them effectively. But in the end, I sailed smoothly and secured the second place! Arena is the ultimate training ground.
Ok, obviously I can’t boast of having tried all the champions, and I fear that junglers might not have an easy time since the jungle farming phase is not replicated. But let’s face it, it’s definitely much better than jumping into a ranked match (matches organized in a competitive gaming system that ranks players based on their performance) and feeling panicked for the first 10 minutes because you don’t know what to do.
And, lo and behold, it’s also incredibly fun! No surprise there, as constantly battling other players is the most enjoyable part of League of Legends. However, there’s something special about the 2v2v2v2 format that works wonders. The ability to change your abilities and the small touch of randomness in the power-ups make each match a unique experience, even when using the same champion over and over again.
It must be said that, trying the game, as a die-hard fan, it wasn’t all roses and flowers. In my opinion, there are some flaws to be fixed. To help new players integrate, some simple solutions could be adopted, in my opinion. For example:
In conclusion, I’m sure many will try out this game mode. Because, despite the flaws listed, it has potential. Anyway, these matches are very dynamic, full of clashes, and low commitment, as a tournament lasts about 15 minutes (relatively short compared to the 30-40-60 minutes of a regular game in Summoner’s Rift!).

In my opinion, for those who are not experts in LoL, the Arena mode is the perfect way to learn everything there is to know about the game’s champions and have a great time. Meanwhile, let’s keep our fingers crossed that it stays forever! If that’s the case, I’ll never have to enter a match again hoping to figure out how to play with a hero I know little or nothing about!
