No but seriously, its friggin enormous lol . Some people like it for their own reason (readability, and livestreaming). Some of us are used to the size we had before, and find it completly overwhelming.

Since we all have mixed feelings about it ( I personally hate it, but I love the increase in size of the rest of the UI font; such as the champion stats and timer) can we please have it adjustable, or atleast scale with the UI as it did before.

There's no reason that it shouldn't have been optionally scalable in the first place.

The way I see it, is that they somehow changed it so that it no longer scaled with the custom UI size. I only say this because alot of people I talk to say that it hasnt changed for them (they must be using the default massive UI size).

No thanks to RIOT for posting a fix to this major annoyance of a problem here is how I fixed it:

I opened the following file located here with a txt editor...
\Riot Games\League of Legends\game\DATA\Menu\HUD\defaults\Chat.ini

Then changed the following lines

[General]
ShadowStrength=4
ShadowColor= 0 0 0
Transparency=0.25
;ChatX =436
;ChatY =-312
ChatX=825
ChatY=-157


[Input]
Color=255 255 255 255


Size=17 <---- Changed to 10

[Output]
FriendlyColor= 0 255 0
AllChatColor = 255 255 255
EnemyColor= 255 51 51
PingColor= 255 165 0
TeamChatColor= 255 255 255
NetworkColor= 255 165 0
Size=18 <----- Changed to 10

That's how I fixed 1/4 of my game screen taken by bunch of chit chatter

can you please stop writing this nonsense in every thread about big chatbox issue

what you are changing the INPUT text size, and the chat text size that appears inside the chat box, NOT THE SIZE OF THE CHAT BOX, please now stop it.

This is how to fix it:
C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\game\DATA\Menu\HUD\defaults
and
C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\game\DATA\Menu\HUD\defaults

find hudYYYYxZZZZ.ini where that's your resolution

change these values to 1.0 :
[PlayerHudChat]
Scale=1.0
[PlayerHudChatFlipped]
Scale=1.0

edit: nevermind it changes back after the first game
