Last week we told you about Ultra Rapid Fire, the new mode for League of Legends that was originally launched as a April Fools 2014 prank. Now though, it has transformed into something much bigger than that, with players now begging Riot Games to make it an official feature permanently.
For those that are not aware, Ultra Rapid Fire, or LoL’s URF mode changes gameplay in a massive way. This is because when this mode is activated, players will receive infinite mana, but perhaps more importantly – no cooldowns on abilities.
This means that players can effectively keep casting spells over and over again, and nearly every champion can become overpowered as a result. As you can imagine, this has created a divided opinion over the mode but you may be surprised to see that there appears to be a greater number of LoL players who actually want the mode to stay.
Firstly, look at some of the reaction that we have picked out from social media:
Last day of #UltraRapidFire :c crying why can't it be permanent

we all know that ultra rapid fire in league is a rip off of bloodline champions

On top of this, we can also confirm that a petition has been set up, officially asking Riot Games to make Ultra Rapid Fire a permanent game mode on League of Legends.
So far there has been over 2,500 signatures, so this certainly isn’t an April Fools joke any more. It will be interesting to see what Riot Games think about this and whether they will give in to temptation.
After all, is there any harm in adding Ultra Rapid Mode to the game, as a separate pool away from the normal players? If you have been enjoying this mode over the last few days, let us know what you want to happen.
Should it stay or should it go?
