The Wild Rift Icons Global Championship 2022 was one of the most dominating exhibitions in Esports history at the grand finals. When Nova Esports defeated J Team 4-0, they had already eliminated top seed FunPlus Phoenix. The team's outstanding jungler An "Long" Xulong's exquisite rotations and objectives stole the show. Despite J Team's best efforts, Nova Esports was always one step ahead regarding the drafting and team battles. Nova Esports has now won seven global mobile Esports titles in as many different titles as they have competed. This triumph has bolstered the organization's "Powerhouse Organization" status in mobile esports.

Before the Wild Rift Icons Global Championship, Riot stated in a live media conference that the victors would get their skin line. Having in-game skins implies that Nova will be the first Wild Rift team. They will create an in-game skin to commemorate the accomplishments of Icon (Icons 2022) winners. For their victory, the team's five members will each get to make their skin, selecting whatever champions they want to represent them.

In addition, the Nova gamers made it clear that they favor the Wild Rift Icon skins. The following are the choices made by the players:

The Riven or Camille of Zhang "Y1ze" Yize, An "Long"  Xulong Lee Sin Wei, "Nian" The "Remake" of Haojin-Lucan or Corki Ma The "Yami" of Zhengyue-Senna Tang Zarathustra or Xenophon.

By the year 2023, all players in Wild Rift will have access to the new skins. Fifty-three thousand three hundred ninety-three people tuned in to watch the Icons Global Championship, with Rex Regum Qeon and Donuts Unsold Stuff Gaming proving to be the most popular matchups. The Esports chart record shows that Riot must find methods to enhance the mobile game's audience in the forthcoming season 2, even though the Chinese Huya broadcast is not included.
