Riot Has Delivered – URF Mode Here to Stay (For Now)

What started off as a testament to the beloved manatee Urf has turned into what can only be described as a crazy, normal game phenomenon. Ultra Rapid Fire (URF) mode has taken the League of Legends community by storm, and what was only supposed to be an April Fool’s Joke has left the players begging for more.

URF mode was released on April 1st and was intended to be live until April 7th. However, in light of all the praise URF received and how much the community loved being able to spam abilities and run around Summoner’s Rift aimlessly killing everyone they see, Riot decided to extend the availability of the game mode until April 13th. Even so — as evidenced by the comments section of Riot’s official announcement for the extension — a good number of players want URF to stay around indefinitely.


In addition to the extension, Riot also made a few more of the “overpowered” champions unavailable to play in URF mode. Among these are:

  • Hecarim
  • Soraka
  • Nidalee
  • Alistar
  • Kayle
  • Skarner

Do you think keeping URF around would be a good idea? Or should Riot do away with it just as they did away with Hexakill and One for All? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
