So, I have been playing way too many games where I used WASD keybindings [who doesn't?] and I am just not a fan of moving the screen with my mouse/arrow keys so I rebound camera movements to WASD and skills to 1234 and summoner skills and item activations around my fingers, which works extremely nicely. I am glad to see this works, but I have had a problem.

The problem is when I start typing, the camera moves whenever I use WASD, of course. I don't really mind this, but it can get my character off-screen if I am trying to type to a team mate. This has actually lead to my death a few times early game. [Sitting in the brush and trying to type while watching out for a gank is nearly impossible.]

I realize that not many people may unbind the keys from their original positions and rebind to what I have, but I was wondering if there was any way/any plans to implement a lock on the camera when you have pressed enter and have the chatbox up.

Any thoughts/comments are appreciated, aside from the derogatory ones, of course.

Hit Y before you start typing.

Although I agree that's problematic.

I appreciate this... I assume you mean before opening up the chatbox, right? Yeah... I guess beyond that it's just a matter of being American [lazy.]

Why arent the keys bound to ASDF and why don't people change their bindings to those keys?
