The League of Legends community is known to have more than its share of toxic players, and Riot Games made them a special tribute with a cheeky Tilted Fables video.

For a decade, League of Legends has been generating tons of hype as it grows which has paved the way for various players to find themselves on the Rift. But there’s been a lot of complaints throughout the seasons of raging players and teammates with horrible personalities toward allies.

The problem that a lot of people find themselves in is encountering a toxic player who justifies their toxicity by claiming to be correct or more skilled than other players, which just means they missed the point of the complaints aimed toward them.

Riot Games trolls the ragers

As a company that routinely receives a ton of reports, Riot Games knows the recurring problems that their players confront on a daily basis and made a hilarious “lore” video for those troublesome community members.

“In this ancient and mysterious tale recently unearthed by Riot Player Support,” Riot joked in the video. “Or we learn the origins of four mythical figures representing the many aspects of a universal gaming experience: tilt.”

Riot GamesEven when League of Legends players think they’re right, they have no idea how tilting they are being for the rest of the team.

The video highlights four different kinds of tilt as the “hot-headed Barbarian, the scolding Paladin, obsessive Scarred Veteran, and Lord DGAF.”

All represent a different kind of tilt. While not all of them are directly negative toward others, every player might relate to one, especially the cursed “masochists” represented by the Scarred Veteran.

While tilted players represented by the Barbarian are a problem all by themselves, players more in line with the Paladin and Lord DGAF represent a more frustrating kind of toxicity.

Paladins are the players that are so convinced by their abilities or in-game knowledge that they take differing opinions as offensive/personal, resulting in them completely shutting down on their own team.

Lord DGAF is a savant of the game who has been “tilted since champ select” since they have the foresight of knowing when a match is lost, leading to “FF at 15” spam.

League of Legends players are only fooling themselves if they don’t think they align with one of these tilt archetypes, and they can find out by taking Riot Games Support’s Tilt Test.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
