I like to play with my camera locked most of the time, and I cant stand playing on purple side (the top one) because your vision seems to be obstructed towards the bottom of the screen usually
What is there that can be done about this?
I have already removed the useless bits of the hud and reduced the size as much as is reasonable but especially when playing with an adjustable length skillshot such as olaf q or shyvana ult going downwards i will not be able to go its full length because the hud or map or something is in the way.
Not only that but also you are unable to see the enemy in lane most of the time especially if you are bot, which makes it hell when facing a nidalee or many other champs.

Does anybody else hate purple side also? I find myself dodging whenever i'm on purple side now

If you play with vision locked and you are past level 10.... you are horrible, think about it. You can see the rest of the battlefield.....................

After playing for awhile, it doesn't even seem like a camera locked only issue. Playing with it unlocked you wind up cutting off the top part of your screen trying to compensate, this leaves you sorely open to ganks if you don't have excellent map awareness. I feel a full 180 degree camera rotation would be the fix. This however would cause mass confusion while people adjusted to top and bot being relative and not set. The only issue I really see is the sheer technical difficulty in adding camera rotation to a game engine that truly wasn't built for it. Maybe in a couple years something like this could be implemented. Until that time comes its a matter of increasing your own map awareness and teamwork to overcome it. Lets face it, it's an issue that can be overcome with skill.

I don't see how you come to this conclusion.
I don't have it focused on me the entire game, you can still look around other points of the map, but then i want it to snap back to me.
when i'm in lane running around, there is no time to be moving the mouse to the edge of the screen when you want to look a bit more, which also gets the cursor away from the enemy in case i need to cast a quick skill

What about adding a preference to let you pick your map side? I would like to be able to always be on blue side.

Just learn to play unlocked like everyone else. Its more effective.

If not, make your interface smaller in the options
