I was just wondering if there were maphackers in LoL because the very few times I played Dota etc, that was one of the things that really just killed the game for me.

I am not aware of any maphacks whatsoever, and I keep a close eye on these things

Most games create fog of war client-side, which means that your computer has all the information already but chooses not to show it to you. Our game on the other hand only sends the information that is absolutely necessary to the client, so there isn't any way to reveal what you shouldn't be able to see (because your computer just plain doesn't know about it).

Well, there's wards. Basically the same thing.


(You hear that, people who get grouped with me? WARDS ARE LIKE MAP HACKS. BUY THEM WITH ME.)
