Bizarre League of Legends bug has broken Yuumi’s core gameplay mechanic

League of Legends players are starting to warm up to Yuumi’s unique gameplay mechanic of attaching to another character, but small cracks in the code are starting to show.

Riot Games released the Magical Cat to the Rift on May 15, and while she was pretty weak in her debut, a quick update was all it took to make her a viable component for a lot of team compositions.

One of the biggest draws for picking Yuumi is obviously her ability to leap from ally to ally to dish out huge crowd control or buffs at a moment’s notice.

Riot GamesYuumi is generally safe when Attached to an ally, but a bug is preventing her from sticking to her teammate.

In a Reddit thread, user ‘pxry1’ showed a clip of that showed Yuumi’s You and Me! ability not working at all as intended after the ally Jhin decided to teleport into the fray.

The video shows the red side sieging the enemy base before an engagement started to break out. After seeing their team was about to get wiped, Jhin used his teleport on a minion advancing in the mid lane.

Pxry1 hitched a ride on their Jhin to take advantage of the cat’s passive, and while it did teleport both of the players, Yuumi didn’t exactly stick with her ADC all the way through.

While Jhin made it to his destination without a problem, Yuumi got Unattached after the teleport finished and was also dropped considerably further away. Somehow Yuumi ended between the Inner and Inhibitor turrets in the top lane.

It looks as if the Jhin TP came in a little too late to save their team from being wiped, but a bug like this could definitely have drastic effects if it popped up in a closer scenario or even a pro game.

Riot GamesHopefully Riot Games finds a fix for the Yuumi bug soon.

Yuumi is being updated in patch 9.12

The Riot Games developers recently gave a look into how Yuumi and other problematic champs have been doing since their big buffs, and it looks like the Magical Cat has been over-performing after getting some help.

As it stands, Yuumi is going to be getting nerfs when the 9.12 update rolls around that will hopefully leave her in a more balanced state.

Along with those nerfs, Yuumi players will anxiously await to see if Riot Games can see this bug and find a fix for it in time for League of Legends’ next big patch.

Popular content creator Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has revealed one of his biggest goals in life, explaining that he would like to own a professional League of Legends team in the future.

Mr Beast has built a massive following of over 45 million YouTube subscribers for his entertaining challenge videos and has also been incredibly charitable, giving away thousands of dollars to fans during his vlog series.

While he is not typically associated with making gaming content, Mr Beast has recently created a YouTube gaming channel, coming out with some unique videos such as filling 100 players into a single Among Us lobby.

However, despite having achieved and experienced so much at an early age, Donaldson revealed that there was one gaming-related goal in life that he was still chasing.

Mr Beast reveals plan to own League of Legends team

On October 28, the YouTube star simply claimed that Riot Games’ hit MOBA, League of Legends, was the “best game ever created.”

While he has been seen to cheer on LCS teams and G2 Esports at past events, he followed up by revealing that he would, eventually, love to have a team of his own to root for.

“One of my goals in life is to own a league team one day,” he added, sharing his plans to take on an ownership role in an esports organization.

As most of the major leagues are currently franchised, or moving or into the franchise model in the next years, it is likely that Mr Beast will have to find a team with an existing slot, depending on the level of team he would like to own.

However, Mr Beast’s post has already piqued the interest of multiple organizations in the LCS and LEC, with many of the top League personalities and owners already reaching out to the content creator.

Fnatic CEO Sam Matthews was among the first few the respond, offering MrBeast the chance to “own a piece of Fnatic” but MrBeast quickly denied, before joking that Fnatic could be a threat to his plans.

The likes of G2 Esports’ CEO Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriquez, as well as staff from TSM, Excel, 100 Thieves, have all hinted at the possibility of working with the star, giving him plenty of choice on how he would like to fulfill his life goal.

As of now, it is unclear just how soon Mr Beast plans on investing in a League of Legends team, or which team he will opt for, but we’ll just have to wait and see what he decides.
