Another /poke for even more zoom out. On a 24" monitor at 1920 x 1080, I still feel like I'm constantly scrolling to cover all my angles.

The view is fine, anyone who's played dota will agree.

The reason why zooming out will cause problems is because it will be much harder to gank someone if they see it coming from a mile away, everyone's movespeed will need to be adjusted and the entire mechanics reworked.

If you leave the fog/line of sight the same, it will feel clunky when a hero disappears into fog when you SHOULD be able to see him given the wide viewing angle...

It's fine, this isn't an RTS, get used to it imo

Actually, it is a realtime strategy game, but I doubt they'll increase the zoom level to a comfortable level anyway so yeah we'll have no choice but to get used to it.

It's not an RTS where u control multiple units where u need to see them all is what i mean, not a traditional RTS.

This.
The current zoom is fine, thank you.

Yeah I knew that. Just being pedantic.

Well I didn't really think of the tiny viewfinder mechanic being important to certain people's playstyle but since LoL is supposed to be an advancement over DoTA maybe the zoom distance could become an advancement too.

Like I said, I don't expect it to change but I know the game would be a lot more fun for me if i didn't have to constantly shove my view up and down during an engagement to know what's going on.

+1 here.

Being able to zoom out more is so much nicer and easier on the eyes.

actually upon further inspection, a slighty larger view area would be an improvement. Today i was getting owned by an ashe who was lighting me up while having half his body off the screen.
