Three pentas, only one registers.
I've had a penta on xin zhao ranked where it says "penta kill" Also one on cassiopeia, and one on fiddle that actually registered. Anyone know what? I've heard of a soft penta but I didn't know if that meant it didn't say penta but you got a quadra and cleaned the last person up. Shed some light please! I'd love to know why.

The most likely reason is that you have 10 seconds (8 before this last patch) after a kill to get another kill to count it as a multi-kill (double, triple, quad, penta). Chances are the time had run out and reset your multi kill. The general term for this in the community is an "unofficial pentakill". Hope this helps

Okay thanks. So even though it said "penta kill" on the screen and she said it, it doesn't count?

It makes sense because the fiddle one happened like all in 3 seconds, lol.
