It's happened several times to me in game now where if I'm launched into the air by Cho'gath's Rupture or Malphite's Unstoppable Force my character will fly into the air with such force that they are literally off the screen for up to five to six seconds until they come flying back down. It has happened on both Twisted Treeline and Summoner's Rift and I was playing as Twitch on both games. This hasn't really caused to many problems for me (in fact the Malphite player died to my turret waiting for me to come down), other than a few good laughs on both sides, but I figured I would bring it to your attention.

This also happens with Alistar's Ground Pound, Janna's Howling Gale, and Blitz's Power Fist. A friend and I were rolling Janna/Cho this week and had "making people fly off the screen" down to an art... But I doubt that was working as intended.

Same. Two weeks ago saw it happen when Blitz punched a Twitch onto the moon. Twitch was almost dead and we lost the kill as a consequence. Heart = broken.

Care to elaborate on "down to an art"?

i found out that it doesnt just happen on chance usually, with one air launching move, but if 2 or 3 happen at the same time, like if blitz punched you right as chogaths rupture pounded you, you would go flying... it used to happen a lot but i think there was a patch a while back that caused it to "stop". or something, but i guess it still happens.

It doesn't always take 2 attacks at the same time to launch them up, friend and I were playing a 1 v 1 match when we first found this out. He went up for about 4 or 5 seconds and came back down and was stunned for a bit (Don't know exactly how long, killed him prior to him running again).

I was running away when "Rupture" hit him.

Just had an Ezreal next to the brush at the bottom tower go flying thanks to Janna. I don't believe he was near the wall.

e: By bottom tower I mean the bottom right one for blue.

Ive found that the best way to trigger it is to flash while mid air from Rupture, Ground slam, or any other move that puts you in the air like that. it was fun to play with for a while but now im bored of it. but its nice way to buy time when waiting for backup since it makes you untselectable for a second or two. and you have full ability access while flying like that

We just got pretty good at placing Cho's rupture at a point that would overlap Janna's tornado, causing either a double-bounce in most cases or a rocket to the moon in some. Prior to the bug, we'd done similar things with Ali/Blitz just for Chain CC.
