League of Legends: Wild Rift on PC with BlueStacks Provides a Silky Smooth 120 FPS to Give You the Competitive Edge
When it comes to competitive titles like League of Legends: Wild Rift, your knowledge and experience in the game will be crucial factors to your success. Equip yourself with the best tools possible and play Wild Rift on a big screen with PC controls to crush your opponents, only on BlueStacks.
By installing and playing this title on BlueStacks, you get a number of benefits — completely customisable controls, the ability to use a keyboard and mouse or a controller and leverage your powerful PC hardware to achieve high frame rates. In contrast, you’d need to spend a ton of money on a good phone to get a comparable experience, and even then, you’d still be playing on a small device that can overheat when playing at high frame rates, has a short battery life, and that offers clunky touchscreen controls.
If you’re serious about getting better at League of Legends: Wild Rift, then BlueStacks is definitely the way to go.

Why 120 FPS is Important in Gaming (And Why You Should Care)
While having a high frame rate is often regarded as a stylistic choice or a preference in single-player games, having a good performance and a smooth experience can significantly improve your results in competitive games like Wild Rift. But how does this work? How can a smoother frame rate give you an edge in multiplayer games?
Well, the answer is actually related not only to the frame rate, but also equally to the refresh rate of your screen. In other words, while achieving a high FPS is an achievement in and of itself, you won’t notice the difference unless your screen has an appropriate refresh rate for your target frame rate. Moreover, as phones get faster and stronger, and their screens are able to reach high refresh rates such as 120Hz, having an equally high frame rate is even more important.
The term “refresh rate” refers to the number of times the pixels on any screen update every second. This unit is expressed in Hertz (Hz), with 1Hz meaning that the screen refreshes once per second and 120Hz meaning that it refreshes 120 times per second. Consequently, a display with a higher refresh rate updates more times every second, thus increasing the fluidity of the image, leading to reduced screen lag and increased awareness of the situation at all times.
The benefits of high refresh rate displays for competitive gaming are significant, but it’s something that is quite difficult to explain with words, and instead you must experience it for yourself to notice the difference. However, what we can say is that, if you’ve ever felt like you’ve missed an opportunity in game due to a misclick, or when you mistimed something in the game, and you blame yourself for it afterward, there’s a chance that it’s not entirely your fault, and that it was something that could’ve been prevented by playing with the superior smoothness of a high-end 120Hz display at 120 FPS.
Of course, the caveat of a high refresh rate is that, in order to take advantage of it, your device must be able to reach the target framerate. For example, though you could probably still feel a slight improvement overall, a screen refresh rate of 120Hz is mostly wasted if your device can only output 60 FPS. This is a problem when playing League of Legends: Wild Rift on your phone, which is one of the few mobile games that support frame rates of up to 120 FPS, because not only are there few phones that come with a 120Hz display, but they are also very high-end and a steep investment for many users.
On the flip side, there’s a good chance that, if you’re reading this, you have a decent PC already, though the same probably can’t be said for your mobile phone. In this sense, if you already have a good enough rig, you can easily download and play Wild Rift on PC with BlueStacks, and use your computer’s superior hardware to enjoy this awesome MOBA game at the best possible framerate, without having to drop loads of cash on a high-end mobile device.
