Game-breaking League of Legends bug turns Seraphine’s ultimate invisible

Seraphine might be the newest champion in League of Legends, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t come with a few bugs of her own, including one that apparently makes her ultimate invisible.

The newest member of K/DA finally arrived with League Patch 10.22 on October 28, and it didn’t take long at all for players to discover a serious bug that can happen when using her ultimate.

Her Encore ultimate sends out a wave that damages enemies in a straight line ahead of the champion, but a glitch is causing the damage to travel separate from the animations, which can make things very confusing.

As you can see in the clip above when Seraphine uses Flash along with her ultimate, the animation doesn’t follow the same path as the damaging effect apparently does.

According to the user who discovered this bug, it only seems to happen when you’re using the summoner spell, but considering everyone takes Flash, that makes it fairly likely to pop up.

This is problematic for multiple reasons. It makes it very tough to try and dodge, since where the game is showing the damage will go isn’t actually where it is.

It didn’t take long at all for players to discover bugs for Seraphine.

Interestingly enough, another champion Ezreal’s R ability actually works in almost the same way, in that it always fires from the original cast location.

It’s a bit of a head-scratcher how Riot overlooked this glitch when they have another champion who works in almost the same way, but hopefully, that means it will be getting fixed quickly.

Until it does get patched, however long that ends up taking, we would suggest keeping an eye on Seraphine and trying to dodge her ultimate based on where she is, rather than where the ability animations appear if you happen to be the unlucky laner who has to go up against her.

New Smash Ultimate fighter theory rules out fan-favorites as next DLC

A new theory in the Super Smash Bros Ultimate community suggests that the next DLC character won’t be one of the popular favorites for Fighters Pass Volume 2.

The theory has to do with the latest tournament event announced by Nintendo. As revealed on November 24, the upcoming tournament will only feature fighters who have a form of headwear such as a hat or helmet.

Normally these events come and go with fans not really reading too much into them, but there is a good chance that Nintendo would want a new fighter to partake in an event such as this.

Basically, if the next DLC fighter was going to be a character such as Doom Slayer, Geno or Ryu Hayabusa, they would have qualified for this event. As such, it would have made more sense to save this tournament until after they released.

Over on the popular forum Smashboards, fans started speculating what this could mean for future DLC.

“The tourney suggests that the next fighter does NOT have a hat, since they cannot be included,” wrote user Aerospherology.

“Considering Mega Man is also there, this includes helmets too,” another pointed out.

The headgear event includes helmets such as Megaman’s.

User pupNapoleon further noted that this would rule out Master Chief, Doom Guy, Excite Biker, Balloon Fighter and Mach Rider.

Furthermore, when considering full hoods, Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion and Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa get deconfirmed.

There are still four more DLC spots left.

While the odds seem to definitely be against Geno for now, on the bright side, this could be a good sign for a fighter such as Crash Bandicoot who has long been rumored for Smash DLC.

Of course, this is still just a theory and it’s more than possible that the next fighter ends up coming with a hat or helmet. Nonetheless, it’s something to consider when thinking about just who the eighth DLC character to join the Smash Ultimate roster will actually be.
