Why is the map the way it is? Anyone playing on purple side is at a disadvantage unless they are able to play unlocked camera. I find this very nerveracking. I'm in lane and can't see anything below me. I can only see above me and behind me because of the camera angle.

The only issue is the UI, and it's not that bad unless you're a carry or mage, at which point you unlock the camera. I agree that it does need a little fixing because it is an unnecessary inconvenience, but it really is nothing more than an inconvenience. It is the way it is because that's how they designed it, without foreseeing the problems. Not sure why you'd phrase the question that way.

I dislike being purple team mid, but I can still succeed at doing it, however annoying. I usually only unlock the camera to land a skillshot (such as a nid spear) from a hiding spot.

I just play unlocked if I'm mid. There's no reason to lock it. If I'm top or bot, I generally don't need to and I still play locked.

Technically playing unlocked gives you more awareness in general, whether you can see up to your range or not. But either way this is an annoyance and Riot should fix it.

I just dislike being unlocked. I find it hard to maneuver because I've always played locked.

Learning to play with unlocked camera, learning to use smartcast, these are things you need to do.

They should make a way to switch the camrea around on your screen, so purple is on the bottom.

I hate these threads. Just unlock your camera and get used to it.

I would love it if they did that. Blue side seems so much easier. Not all of us have the time to practice unlocked around work/college/school. I myself am a full time student and work a full time job. I only get to play on my days off.
