obviously you live in an area with no bridges sir


Rivers have to flow from somewhere; to somewhere. Regardless if mid lane is a bridge or not.

It's like saying that pond in your garden is a river, it's just seperated from the sea by 30 miles of bridge.

"a natural stream of water of fairly large size flowing in a definite course or channel or series of diverging and converging channels"

From Dictionary.com.

The 'river' is neither large, nor flowing. Nor is it a single body of water for that matter.

Yea, bridges that are made up of land and not only split, but isolate two bodies of water.


two bodies of water of similar, if not exact, length facing the same direction and separated by a small stretch of land that allows people to cross. the argument can be made that, similar to the bering straight, the river is simply in low tide during season 1 of League of Legends and will soon overflow, connecting the two bodies to flow once more. an alternate possibility is that it is a combination landfill, bridge, and possibly sewer system, which would lead to the optical illusion of summoner's rift having two distinct bodies of water.


or you could just get over it and let it go. its a video game dude

So then the two ponds are connected to make a larger pond. Summoner's Rift is surrounded by mountains if I recall, so it would take quite a bit of flooding to cause the water to overflow to the point of connecting to some sort of outlet that would cause it to flow, so much in fact, that Summoner's Rift would resemble Atlantis.

Because we can walk on it. So it's a river.
