The decision for Ramadan's integration into Wild Rift stems from a group of Rioters who personally celebrate the occasion, recognizing the deep impact the representation of varied cultures could have on players.

Spearheaded by Anas Al Hakim, the Ramadan strike team, comprising Rioters from various offices globally, embarked on the mission to embed the essence of Ramadan within the Wild Rift environment.

To ensure an authentic portrayal, Riot Games collaborated closely with the strike team, tapping into their cultural insights and experiences of Ramadan. By engaging Rioters who are well familiar with the tradition of Ramadan across different regions, Riot Games set out to capture the diverse cultural tapestry woven into the celebration of the Islamic holy month.

Anas Al Hakim, serving as a cultural and visual advisor, emphasized the multifaceted nature of Ramadan and the importance of representing its varied manifestations across regions. Drawing upon the collective expertise of Rioters spanning different cultural backgrounds, the Ramadan group embarked on a collaborative journey to boost the game’s environment with authentic Ramadan experiences.

"Together Under the Crescent," the Wild Rift Ramadan event, encapsulates the ideas of unity and togetherness intrinsic to Ramadan. Across cultures, the act of gathering with loved ones during Iftar carries the essence of communal bonds nurtured during the holy month.

In crafting the event, Riot Games sought to incorporate elements unique to each region's Ramadan traditions, recognizing the rich diversity of the global celebrations of the occasion. From the bustling streets of Turkiye, where drummers herald the approach of Sahur, to the communal gatherings in Indonesia and Malaysia just before Iftar, the event wants to reflect the myriad of customs and rituals associated with Ramadan.

The introduction of a new game mode and mini-games serves to boost the celebratory atmosphere, providing players with immersive experiences to enjoy with friends. The inclusion of cultural motifs, emotes, and traditional dishes in the game underscores Riot Games' commitment to honoring players' cultural heritage in Wild Rift.

Looking ahead, Riot Games envisions expanding its repertoire of cultural celebrations within Wild Rift, ensuring that players from diverse backgrounds find resonance and representation within the game. By fostering a sense of inclusivity and cultural appreciation, Riot Games wants to create meaningful experiences that resonate with players worldwide.

As Together Under the Crescent unfolds within Wild Rift, Riot Games embarks on a journey to celebrate the richness and diversity of Ramadan, laying the groundwork for future cultural celebrations within the game.
