Game-breaking League glitch makes Rek’Sai almost unplayable

A game-breaking glitch in League of Legends has made Rek’Sai almost unplayable after Riot tried to fix a bug with the champion in the patch 10.19.

Riot has released their final set of League of Legends changes ahead of Worlds 2020 with patch 10.19 and it included some significant nerfs to champs like Senna, Lucian, Azir, and more.

There were also some bug fixes included in the latest patch, including one which addressed a glitch that would stop Rek’Sai’s ability cooldowns from working as intended.

The bizarre bug has left many Rek’Sai mains frustrated in recent weeks, after it was discovered that cooldowns for the champion’s ‘unburrowed’ ability set would not tick down when she was in her ‘burrowed’ form.

This resulted in players dealing far less damage with their abilities while switching between forms but, despite Riot’s latest attempts to fix this bug, it now seems to have come back much worse than before.

League of Legends YouTuber Vandiril explained that although a temporary bug fix was added in patch 10.19, after the Rek’Sai is killed once in-game, a new version of the bizarre glitch would appear.

“After Rek’Sai dies once in the game, she is even more broken than before the hotfix,” the YouTuber added. “Not only does the previous bug exist but now it also happens in Burrowed form.”

While it would previously only hurt Rek’Sai’s Unburrowed abilities, it now also has an effect on the Void character’s Burrowed abilities meaning that both ability sets would take longer to cool down.

This glitch alone has seen the champion’s win rate dramatically decrease to 41%, currently making Rek’Sai the worst pick in the Jungle position.

With Worlds 2020 starting on September 25 and Rek’Sai in her current state, it is possible that we could see the Void Burrower removed from the champ pool completely if it does not get fixed in time.

However, this likely won’t have that much of an impact on players’ performances in the 2020 World Championship, as Rek’Sai has fallen out of the meta, following the rise of AP and carry junglers in recent patches.

Esports platform FACEIT is putting together a host of leagues for collegiate North American teams to vie for a $55,000 pot across League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Valorant circuits.

The deadline for college players to sign up will be November 1, after which the TO will move ahead with a two-division system for CSGO & Valorant as well as regional qualifiers for League of Legends.

For the two tactical shooters, FACEIT will have a “Premier league, for top-tier competition, and Contenders league, for more casual competition.”

College players should note that the Premier and Contenders league will have a registration fee of $125 per team and $75 per team, respectively.

CSGO & Valorant leagues

From the $55,000 pot, CSGO will get a $30,000 prize pool, $5,000 of which will supply the Contenders league winnings. Meanwhile, FACEIT is putting $10,000 up for grabs in Valorant.

Both Premier and Contenders will have a 10-week Swiss format regular season that will lead into a single elimination playoff in Spring 2021.

Matches start on November 5-10 with the regular season’s 10th match scheduled for February 18-23, so student teams will have months to plan, prepare, and play out the full season.

The playoffs are planned to take place in March through April in the new year, with the Championship following after.

FACEIT will hold collegiate varsity events for Valorant and CSGO.

League of Legends

FACEIT will produce a three-phase LoL circuit that will eventually decide which team claims the biggest take of the $15,000 prize pool.

State-wide qualifiers, consisting of 16 teams each, are going to take place in the US and Canada. These will decide which teams make it into the Regional Stage. The top four teams that make it out of the Regionals will go on to the Finals for the biggest share of the $15,000 pot.

Every state qualifying tournament will require a $100 registration fee, 50% of which goes to the prize pool. FACEIT gave this example: “if the California tournament has 10 teams, there will be a $500 prize for that.”
