hello i have been having this problem for about 3 - 4 months now and i have done everything i can think of including re-installing the game, but nothing seams to fix the issue i am having with your chat system. every time i get a tell in game i am unable to respond to it i hit /r and type my message but it says that player is not on my friend list but i know they are there. ( i have also tried to remove them and then re-add them a few times) if i try and do a straight tell where i type out the name i get a error sayin that again they are not on my friend list. it is only happening with about 3 - 4 out of 40 + people on my friend list but any time im playing a game and they send me a tell there is nothing i can do to not have them feel like im ignoring them for no reason for 30 - 45 mins at a time.

Just curious but did those friends get a name change around the time you started to have this problem?
Also, are you able to view their profiles by right clicking their name in the friends list and choosing View Profile?

The easiest way to make sure when you're in game that you can message to friends correctly (without getting the /r missing friend bug) is to temporarily run LoL in windowed mode. Then, open your shrinked tab taskbar in the lower right hand corner of windows, by clicking the small arrow button. A symbol that is the Riot symbol will be there. Clicking it will bring up the Air Client, which still has functionality to talk in chats. Talk to your friend there, get a response, and his name should be loaded up in game and you should be able to go back to /r replies.
