Game-breaking League of Legends bug lets players walk through walls

An insane bug has been discovered in League of Legends, allowing players to ignore certain walls on the map and simply walk through them.

As with any game, League of Legends has seen its fair share of bugs. Most of the time, they are minor and hardly affect gameplay, and even some of the biggest bugs have simply required Riot to disable one or two champions for a short time. 

However, a new bug has been discovered that lets players walk through walls, and if used, changes the game completely. It’s unlike any other bug before it, and may even force the developers to briefly shut down the game’s iconic map.

Riot GamesSummoner’s Rift was updated for LoL’s new season, and players have already discovered a massive bug.

The bug was first noticed at the start of December, when a Fiddlesticks clip went viral, with many thinking it was impossible to recreate. This was not the case, however, as YouTuber Vandiril released a video only a few days later, showing just how easy it was to do.

Although, only certain walls seem to be affected by this issue, with the key areas being the raptors camp, dragon and baron pits, blue buffs, as well as the top and bottom of the river.

Still, being able to walk through the walls in these areas is a massive bug in the game, getting into the dragon or baron pit is a lot easier, and there are many new angles for invades, making the jungle a much scarier place.

Luckily for fans and players alike, the game is currently in its off-season, meaning that professional play is on hold, and season 10 of the ranked system won’t start until January 8. So, while the bug is game-breaking, it at least didn’t appear in the middle of the competitive grind.

Riot have yet to comment on the issue, but they are undoubtedly aware of the bug and are no doubt already working on a fix.

Amumu has risen up as the dominant jungler after the League of Legends Season 11 item rework. He was targeted in League patch 10.24, but the changes didn’t go far enough, with Riot shipping out a big hotfix on November 26.

Amumu was the big winner of the League of Legends Season 11 changes. While his winrate shot up on the Patch 10.22 thanks to a change to his ultimate, the new items on Patch 10.23 only cemented his place at the top of the jungler power rankings.

In the space of a month, he jumped from 48.88% win rate to 57.08%, according to stats site op.gg. His pick rate also went up tenfold, from 1.12% to 17.98%.

Amumu has run away as the top jungler in League Season 11, but Riot are reining him in.

Given his outdated kit, it’s a small miracle the Sad Mummy has found his way back into the meta after years of being obsolete. Between Sunfire Aegis, Demonic Embrace, and Abyssal Mask though, it’s given Amumu a new lease on life.

However, Riot believes they’ve given him a bit too much of a leash to work with. After a small set of nerfs to begin with on League patch 10.24, they’ve gone one step further with an even bigger set of changes in a November 26 hotfix.

The hotfix includes a nerf to Amumu’s mana per level, the base damage on his E, as well as his ultimate stun duration. The three changes in tandem are designed to make Amumu less of a kill threat, having to conserve his resources for when the time is right.

“Amumu is still looking like a big outlier after the patch, overperforming other tanks and everyone else,” lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter said on Twitter.

Riot are hoping the changes bring Amumu in line with other tanks, who were nerfed hard via Sunfire Aegis, Frostfire Gauntlet, and Turbo Chemtank.

They’ll be keeping their eyes on the Sad Mummy until the next update, League patch 10.25, which is expected to drop on December 9.

The final update of the Season 10 cycle is currently set to include a bunch of new cosmetics, overhauls to Pantheon and Anivia, and more.
