In addition to the permanent game modes, Summoner’s Rift and ARAM, League of Legends offers a variety of rotating game modes, with one of them being All Random Ultra Rapid Fire (ARURF).
All Random Ultra Rapid Fire, or ARURF, stands as a Featured Game Mode within the League of Legends framework. Unlike the conventional URF mode where players can select their preferred champions, ARURF takes a different approach by randomly assigning champions to each player, much like how champions are assigned in League’s ARAM mode.
The Winter event left players without a new game mode, which disappointed many. However, Riot Games has now officially announced that ARURF will be the next rotating game mode to grace the League of Legends arena.
The commencement and conclusion dates for ARURF in 2023 are as follows
ARURF is presently available on the PBE and is slated to kick off with League of Legends patch 13.1 on January 12, 2023. The duration of ARURF will coincide with the Lunar 2023 event, concluding when the event wraps up.
Here are the specifics of ARURF gameplay
ARURF matches take place on the Summoner’s Rift map, with champions randomly assigned to players. However, a stroke of luck might allow players to secure some of the top-tier champions available in ARURF.
Noteworthy is the fact that there won’t be any significant alterations to the champion lineup compared to previous instances. Nevertheless, adjustments implemented in response to the preseason item rework will likely carry over to this year’s ARURF mode.
Some of these adjustments include:
- A +300 boost in ability haste, summoner spell haste, and item haste.
- A 25% increase in tenacity.
- A 60-point surge in movement speed.
- A doubling of bonus attack speed for ranged champions, and a 1.5x increment for melee champions.
- For mana-based champions: Conversion of bonus mana to HP at a 40% rate, and conversion of bonus mana regen to HP at a 100% rate.
Additional particulars to bear in mind:
- Complete elimination of mana and energy consumption.
- Alterations to Smite, including a reduction in charge rate from 75 seconds to 30 seconds, and a decrease in the cooldown between charges from 15 seconds to 10 seconds.
- Deactivation of the Teleport ability.
- Adjustment of Baron Nashor’s initial spawn time to 10 minutes.
- Dragon’s initial spawn time set at 4 minutes.
- In ARURF, the maximum level achievable is level 30.
- Implementation of changes to the Early Surrender mechanism.
This year’s ARURF mode promises an exciting and dynamic experience for League of Legends players, offering a unique twist on the usual gameplay through its random champion assignments and the incorporation of several notable gameplay adjustments.
