Game-breaking issue still unnoticed by Riot

The AoE/Projectile "bug", "issue", "misrepresentation" whatever you want to call it is ruining this game.

As it stands currently, several character's AoE abilities and Skill shot projectile abilities are able to hit you despite the fact that you are out of the range of the projectile's model.

Whether or not this is a bug or intentional is irrelevant. This problem needs to be fixed. Either the hitboxes of projectiles need to reflect the actual size of the projectile, or the projectile needs to reflect the actual size of the hitbox.


Do not believe me? Check out these two videos.

Notice how Malphite is well outside of even the green part showing where the AoE will hit.

Malzahar is well out of the range of the arrow, yet he is still stunned.

I saw the post. The riot employee said things were working as intended. If this is intended then we have some serious problems.

Twisted Fate is the same way it was before any AOE bug. I demand a buff.

lol you really think that the range of Karthus' Q is working properly? Did you even watch the video?

You could literally fit another Cass in between her and Karthus' Q, that's how broken the range is

If I remember correctly, RIOT says it's better to have the occasional "dodged" projectile hit someone, then having a projectile that "hits" someone miss.

Hit boxes are one of the hardest things to do on networked games. You can never make everyone happy.,

"The difference between being a pro and being a noob is making sure your misses hit."

I understand that, the problem is that it is leading to a serious issue where a large of amount of projectile shots that were clearly misses become hits.

Most annoying example is if you have oracles or a pink ward and you go to kill a teemo shroom as melee it just explodes on you.
