League community wants a fix to “inexcusable” jungle camp vision bug

A glitch in League of Legends prevents people from getting timely vision of jungle camps and the community are looking to the devs to address the issue.

The bug has been a persistent feature of the MOBA for quite some time and with Riot ramping up production on their 10-year-old title, people want the problem to be addressed sooner rather than later.

Essentially the bug makes it so that monsters in jungle camps appear slightly later than everything else once a champion claims vision of that spot. It’s an interaction that players are reluctantly used to coming across throughout their games, but not something they want to see beyond 2020.

“When is Riot going to fix jungle camps momentarily not showing when entering the fog of war?” user ‘SarcasticGuy20’ said. “This is a huge issue that I don’t see brought up or addressed that often at all.”

SarcasticGuy20’s clip of a replay gave an example of how a high-percentage Baron steal attempt was thwarted by the untimely glitch.

The Baron and other jungle camps come in vision milliseconds after other LoL elements or textures.

After Flashing into the Baron pit, there were various frames where the Ekko was actually in the Baron’s field of view but the game hadn’t loaded the creature fast enough.

The player even managed to get a few steps in before the Epic creature was Smited by the opposing jungler. When SarcasticGuy20 jumped into the pit, the Baron had about 615 health and there was even leeway to last hit it when it dropped to 485 HP.

Although it was a small window, that’s what 50/50 Smite fights come down to, but Ekko couldn’t target the Baron even though he had vision of the river and enemies within it.

When is riot going to fix jungle camps momentarily not showing when entering fog of war? Cost me a late game baron steal which could’ve won my team the game. This is a huge issue that I don’t see brought up or addressed that often at all. from leagueoflegends

Some people noted that this could be Riot’s anti-cheat against scripts and the like at work. While the game had enough time to read, load, and process the opposing players as well as terrain, the Baron still went missing, leading some to call the timing “inexcusable.”

With Riot set for a litany of improvements or additions in the near future, it’ll be interesting to see if the League of Legends devs take a closer look at this type of occurrence.

In her second Twitch stream, AOC hilariously explained how experiencing Elo Hell in League of Legends helped her develop the patience required for being a congresswoman.

U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, affectionally known as AOC, has been open about how much she loves League of Legends in the past. The proud politician even stunned her fans and followers when she revealed she finally made Silver IV.

It might have been her first foray into the minds and hearts of gamers around the world, but it certainly wasn’t the last. In October, AOC made history when hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in to watch her play Among Us on Twitch for the very first time.

AOC was so well-loved among streamers and viewers, they begged her to come back for a second stream. It finally happened on November 27, and it was as wholesome and entertaining as the first.

AOC’s first ever Among Us stream on Twitch was a smash hit.

At one point during the stream, Ryan ‘Northernlion’ Letourneau asked AOC an interesting question about her League of Legends experience and her response was both understandable and hilarious.

“Do you think having to keep your cool in League of Legends chat has helped your political career when it comes to maintaining some decorum in Congress?” asked Northernlion.

“Yeah, I think so,” said AOC. “Getting caught in Elo Hell really requires so much patience. I was playing with 12-year-olds… rage quitting five minutes into a game… so it really builds your patience.”

Elo Hell is a term used to describe situations where players and their rankings are dragged down due to incompetent and toxic teammates. It’s something League of Legends players know all too well, including AOC.

AOC has always managed to come across as down-to-earth. Still, it’s comforting and kind of funny to hear an esteemed congresswoman talk about something so relatable, especially to gamers.

Elo Hell in League of Legends is the absolute pits, but at least we now know it counts for something.
