When I saw it for the first time I said, like many others, "Hey, something's... not... so cool here.". And that brought me to the forum. As always, before posting something, I started to read if someone else had said something about it.

And they actually did! All these threads are about the Camera Angle issue, don't even bother to read them:

And I tell you not to bother, because I already did. I read each and every post in those URLs, seeking for an explanation, seeing how there are many other fellow complainers that dislike this angle stuff.

Why did I read? Because maybe I was wrong, and the angle was right. Many counter-arguments I found, only one of them worth sharing:

Quote:
ALL PLAYERS HAVE THE SAME CAMERA VIEW. In order to view one area, you sacrifice viewing another. Blue, in mid, would have to sacrifice viewing the area behind his champion to see minions. Purple, also in mid, has to do the same.

You know what the difference is? BLUE HAS TO SACRIFICE OF THE VIEW BEHIND HIS CHAMPION TO VIEW MINIONS, BUT HAS LESS TO SACRIFICE. PURPLE IS LITERALLY THE EXACT INVERSE, MEANING HE HAS TO SACRIFICE MORE THE VIEW BEHIND HIS CHAMPION BUT HAS MORE ROOM BEHIND HIS CHAMPION TO SACRIFICE.

And yes, the amounts are exactly inverse, meaning the tradeoff is even on both sides.

Everyone who has a problem with this falls into one the following two categories:
1: Has never considered that there is a direct inverse relationship to how much a player sacrifices of the view behind his champion to gain view in front of his champion between blue and purple, meaning there is zero disadvantage to either side.

2: Plays with the camera locked. If you do that, that's fine, you can play with whatever training wheels you want, but the game is not designed for a niche of players who don't feel comfortable with the most basic aspect of the game, and it will not sacrifice flavor for them.

There is now a third category:
3: Players who have heard the truth, been given the information that logically disproves their grief and reveals the mistake they've made, but held onto to the problem anyway because they don't want to lose. To you players, you have my sincere pity and I hope you someday learn to think logically.
I liked that one, but the only think I thought was: "Hey, purple team has advantage in fleeing, when blue in advancing. Sweet ._."

In all those links, there are 1,008 posts. Yes, I also counted them. Two of them are polls. All of them have countless views if you sum it all up, and upvotes everywhere. And that's not the funny part! The actual cool stuff is that those are just the first ones. I googled, to find them more easily, and guess what?

They are endless.

I attached a Screenshot, quite funny to look at.

All this made me think, "Why?"... "Why should I complain too?" "Why some people argue against this?"

I know you may bring up your don't lock the camera and learn to play like a pro, you noob or it's perfectly balanced you pitiful *insert insult here*, but don't think it that way. If so many people complain, it's because they, in a way or another, don't like it. Ain't it easier to think "Hey, all these people might play better and make the gamers community even cooler if this, apparently, small thing, is changed? I should support them on this! I don't have anything to lose!! Yaaaay!!!"?

All that aside, as I think Riot is made of many good people *rainbow appears*, any sane person would notice that something so small helps sooo many people (we can't count the thousands that speak other languages, the ones that think "If they haven't changed it, they won't. Mah, I won't say anything about this.", the ones that don't even like forums or don't like to complain, etc etc) to have a Much better game experience, and would add a small change.

In those threads, and the thousands I haven't read, there are many cool suggestions. My intention was just to focus all of them in one big, possible useless-like-all-those, thread, so you see the dimension of it all.

Thanks for reading me, I tried to do it in a constructive way.

P.S.: Excuse my english, not my native language. Notice that I never said Fix, I rather used Change, but I think that Add works better (a "flip" option, or whatever, you'll know).
