Community frustrated by League of Legends bugs ruining ARAM games

The League of Legends client houses the popular All Random All Mid mode, which has always been a fan-favorite – but that’s been being ruined lately by some particularly pesky game-breaking bugs.

Riot Games brought the Howling Abyss and ARAM to their LoL ecosystem in 2012 and has since been one of the best mental breaks from the tilting lanes of the Rift.


But more importantly, the mode is a fun way mode to either pass the time with friends or try out a random champion from one of the 146 characters in the massive catalog of the MOBA, as of November 2019.

Although ARAM can generally be a fun environment for many, major disconnect bugs are forcing players to go through multiple matches with an immediate disadvantage. In some cases, before the game even begins.

Riot GamesThere’s been a ton of fun on Howling Abyss, but bugs are starting to ruin more than a few games.

Putting a spotlight on the issues, Reddit user ‘tredli’ explained their frustrations as a bug in ARAM is disconnecting players which are forcing matches to be played with uneven players on each side.

“There is a bug where people dodge the lobby, and the game continues the same,” they said. “You see a message that ‘X has left the lobby,’ but the game goes through the same way.”

“Dodging” is the act of avoiding a matchmade lobby by exiting out of the client, to not commit to the game. While the dodging player usually accrues a penalty for leaving, the rest of the players are taken back to find another set of players.

Riot GamesThe bugs in ARAM can sometimes leave a team with a player-advantage through a whole match.

Unfortunately, the bug isn’t returning players out of the lobby, creating “a completely absurd number of 4v5s” in multiple ARAM matches.

Moreover, another bug is creating a specific instance where instead of players dodging, people’s clients are freezing up before loading into the game.

“What happens to me a lot is that I join the loading screen, and when it hits 100%, my client completely freezes,” user ‘howd-i-do-that’ said. “I never realize what’s happening until a few minutes later, and I have to restart my computer completely.”


By the time the player becomes aware that something isn’t quite right, the game is already well on its way, with them barely loading up in the Abyss.

It seems like there are a couple of bugs ruining the ARAM experience, and many players are hoping the League of Legends devs address them sooner than later.


League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.


However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.


“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.


“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
