Riot’s “Tilted Fables” troll video pays tribute to toxic LoL players

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.

TFT Patch 10.22 hotfix nerfs Morgana after “accidental” buff

First it was Warwick, now it’s Morgana. Riot have had to tone back the Enlightened-Dazzler’s power in an October 30 hotfix after TFT Patch 10.22 gave her some “accidental” buffs.

Morgana reigned supreme after TFT Patch 10.22 as one of the best champions in the game. The Dazzler changes, as well as buffs to her spell damage, made the four-cost unit near unstoppable.

It was by pure accident though. TFT lead developer Stephen ‘Mortdog’ Mortimer revealed the Morgana changes weren’t meant to be shipped. However, Riot were keeping an eye on it instead of instantly reverting it.

“We accidentally shipped the [Morgana] change [in TFT Patch 10.22]. This was not intended and due to an error, but we’re going to leave it for now. Will keep an eye on things and undo via a B-Patch next week if necessary,” Mortdog told players on October 28.

However, the buff was too broken. The Morgana changes didn’t even make the weekend after the patch. Riot pulled the changes almost immediately, shipping a hotfix on October 30 ⁠— two days after the update launched.

It was a total revert of the spell damage buff Morgana received on TFT Patch 10.22, back to 250/400/2000 from 325/525/2000.

Morgana wasn’t the only thing touched in the October 30 TFT hotfix. AP items Chalice of Harmony, Jeweled Gauntlet, and Rabadon’s Deathcap were also changed.

Chalice of Harmony and Jeweled Gauntlet stacking has been a popular choice for Ahri compositions, as well as general Mage builds. However, nerfs to Jeweled Gauntlet’s bonus crit damage and Chalice’s bonus spell power should make them a little less appealing.

The big winner of this is the double-rod Rabadon’s Deathcap. It’s receiving a buff to its total spell power, which might make it a bit more appetizing to players.

There’s still potential for a further TFT Patch 10.22 update next week as part of a b-patch. However, it’s likely there won’t be any changes until November 4’s TFT Patch 10.23.

You can find the full TFT Patch 10.22 hotfix notes below.
