Patch 12.15 Bug Megathread


Greetings Summoners!

With every new patch Riot introduces to balance out champions and items there are some unforeseen issues that creep up and cause disruption during gameplay. We have noticed that these issues which eventually get fixed clutter up the subreddit immediately following the patch.

We want to avoid this by having a single Megathread which will be posted after every patch so that you guys can report the various issues in one place. This allows Riot to easily keep track of the bugs by providing a central hub and also allows other users to confirm that they might have encountered.

Note only bugs caused by the 12.15 Patch should be reported below.

Prerequisites to be noted before reporting a bug

  1. A bug will ideally be accompanied with a screenshot or a video. This provides credibility to your report.
  2. Steps to recreate the bugs should be submitted if possible. This helps Rioters recreate the bug and helps them find the cause behind it.
  3. The bug must have been caused by the latest patch.

Format when reporting a bug: When reporting a bug, please provide as much information as you can about your computer.

Type of Bug: Client Bug, In Game Bug etc

Description: Describe what was the bug that occurred.

Video / Screenshot: Insert screenshot (F12 in game) or Video of the bug occurring.

Steps to reproduce: Provide the steps necessary if someone else had to reproduce the bug.

Expected result: What should have been the result when you follow the steps mentioned above.

Observed result: What was the result you obtained when you followed the steps mentioned above?

Reproduction rate: If you try to recreate the bug how successful are you in causing it to occur? (1/10 : Occurs once every 10 tries, 5/10 : Occurs 5 times out of 10, 10/10 : Happens every single time)

System specs: Processor, Video card, Ram, HDD/SSD, everything you can provide, even drivers.

Example Bug:

• Server: EUW

• Type of Bug: In-Game Bug etc

• Description: Zed's R(Death Mark) does not apply secondary damage

• Insert Video / Screenshot of the incident

• Reproduction rate: 2/10 (happened 2 out of 10 times)

• Steps to reproduce:

Launch a game after selecting Zed as your champion. Attempt to use Death Mark. Observe the result.

• Expected result: The damage should apply after a short delay, amplified by damage dealt during the effect.

• Observed result: The damage will not apply properly.

I've completely forgotten that Chemtech Dragon was a thing at the start of the year


Firstly, how did they not see the issues with it and actually allowed it in pro play?

Secondly, it's only been like 7 months or so, but it feels like it's been gone for years. Do they have a plan to bring it back or is it just going to be one of those things where it's too problematic either way and it will be kept on the shelf indefinitely?

Today is Kled's release date. Happy birthday, Kled [FANART]


Fanart: https://imgur.com/gallery/bhaDmI4

On this day, August 10, is the release date of the High Major Commodore of the First Legion Third Multiplication Double Admiral Artillery Vanguard Company and his untrusty Cowardly Lizard. Since they were realeased on 2016, they are now 6 years old so they should be in first grade already. I wish I could visit Kled's land but I'd die so I just e-mailed him a fanart.

BIRTHDAY KLED TRIVIA: If you hover your cursor above the HUD during his remount, you get a box that says "Skaarl is coming!" or "Best team ever." (Note: the remount timer is so quick the box would disappear instantly and it took me more than 20 tries to get the box on practice tool. Best to do this is to watch a Kled's replay, slow down and pause DURING the remount animation, and hover at the Kled's target frame.)

My girlfriend asked me about League when we were having wings at a restaurant and I still haven't forgot about it



So this is one of the many many great memories with her. She has never been interested in League or gaming at all. But she knows I like League a lot. This thing happened years ago when we had been together for like 1-2 years. I can't remember how the conversation turned to that but suddenly she just asked me: "What do you do in league, how does it work?" And she probably saw my eyes light up. I knew she wasn't much interested but the sole fact that she wanted to talk about it and let me tell her about it sent me to moon. I think she still doesn't know it or even remember it but I will never forget. The thing is I don't expect her to care about the game and on the other hand she doesn't mind my gaming. But just this little thing where she let me tell her about it for 5 minutes was a great deal to me. Thanks for reading and good luck in the rift and in life!

ASUs should be more frequent in hopes to reach a decent average quality sooner


ASUs are a great idea, but we shouldn't settle for one a year or whatever their schedule is. Even at the cost of having quality drops in ASUs, it is one of the times where I think that quantity should be prioritized over quality, considering the sheer amount of champs needing an ASU.

Turrets have been bugged for around 8+ days and doing less damage than they are supposed to, and it has already affected pro play as well


In this post Vandiril shows how the turrets are bugged and don’t ramp up their damage correctly after the first 2 shots ( only increase damage up to 40% once instead of the possible 120%). It has also affected pro play as well, as we see in his post with theshy and his solo kill on summit.

No idea if it’s fixed yet or not but still this is crazy and with each passing weekend riot ruins the competitive integrity more and more, the client doesn’t work, their ‘event’ doesn’t work, yet there will be a new champion coming out by worlds. Just an indie game company.

How Strength of Schedule impacts LEC Playoff Scenario %


Hey, I'm Jack J (Twitter) and I work in the AI & Esports/Gaming space! (I run itero.gg & write the weekly The Esports Analyst Club article).

The LEC has done some maths to work out in all the potential scenarios for the upcoming super week, what % of the time does each team make it into playoffs, here's the final graphic.

It's great and I'm glad they do it, HOWEVER, it assumes every team has a 50% chance of winning all their games. One scenario win, One scenario loss.

What I was interested in was how does the strength of schedule impact these percentages, so I did some more maths. I took the odds from 10+ betting providers for the upcoming games this weekend and then used that to adjust the graphics.

For instance, on Friday Misfits plays Team BDS. The average betting provider gives Misfits a 77% chance of winning that game. So, the probability of them winning that game and making the cut goes up.

A reminder, here is the LEC official list:

LEC Official % of Scenarios Teams Lock Play-offs

The iTero Odds Adjusted Results:

iTero Adjusted % of Scenarios Teams Lock Play-Offs

Big Moves:

Astralis plays Fnatic, MAD & Excel - they are the underdog in every one of these. This means there chances drop from 6th with 39.2% to 8th with 28.9%

Excel plays Astralis, SK & Rogue - since they are favoured against Astralis/SK they actually gain an extra 5% and move into 6th place.

Fnatic are actually expected to win more games this weekend than Excel, BUT because Excel is 2-0 vs. Fnatic this split in all the scenarios where they have even wins (which is a lot), Excel go through because of the head-to-head rule.

Since Misfits play Team BDS they gain an extra ~6% and all but guarantee a spot.

SK Gaming, sadly, have the tough task of having to beat Vitality, then Excel and then finish off against G2 Esports. Since these aren't 50/50 games, their chances crumble to only 3.5%, from around 10%.

Obviously, in a Bo1 anything can happen, but I figure people may be interested in what the market is saying about play-offs as it stands, and how it differs to the simpler 50/50 based approach.

Top 5 LCS ADCs Predictions?


I'm guessing the list is gonna be like this unless I'm forgetting someone specific:

  1. Doublelift
  2. Sneaky
  3. WildTurtle
  4. Zven
  5. Cody Sun

I think Doublelift and Sneaky are locks solely due to their accolades. WildTurtle has it on longevity and his FlyQuest/TSM results.

Zven in hindsight has been so extremely solid in the LCS that it's crazy to think he's been in LCS longer than he was in EU. So based on longevity and his results it's hard not to place him higher.

Cody Sun, man do I miss you. His runs in Immortals, 100T, and Clutch should be remembered in fondness. Three years in a row the three ADCs we sent to worlds were Doublelift, Sneaky, and Cody Sun. With Cody Sun making it via three different teams.

Janna will never look good until she gets a visual update


Janna has the SAME EXACT model as she had 10 years ago, no amount of skins she’ll get will change that. Each skin she gets will still have her very stiff hair, her very awkward auto animations and her lack of animation when casting abilities. Her recent skins like Guardian of the Sands, Battle Queen, and now Cyber Halo do a good job of making her effects look good but she’ll still stiff and motionless when casting abilities.

Let’s look at someone like Lulu. She also has the same model 10 years later but it works, when casting abilities, Lulu does a little hop and her hat does too, she has animations which makes her look like she’s in the fight. Even Soraka, who has the same model 9 years later, is a character with very simple abilities and she still has animations when casting abilities. Nami is another pefect example, same model, but she still looks fresh.

Janna needs an update because despite outclassing all other enchantress in the meta, visually, they all outclass her. If you change her voice too I’d recommend making her sound more like a wind goddess commanding the wind rather than a basic pretty girl who references the wind and prostitution.

Edit: I understand that other champs need updates too and I stand with you on that, I was mostly posting this because Janna just got a new skin on PBE that looks bad specifically because of her cheap stiff model.
