ARAM Rules, Standard Rules ARAM
================================================== ================================================== ================================================= =================================================

ARAM Rules DISCLAIMER: ARAM Rules are a set of Rules set by the majority of the community. That being said this guide / set of rules is to help you understand what the majority of the ARAM community is expecting you to know and abide by when you join a ARAM game and the host does not state any specific rules / variations.

To avoid any confusion and to keep this game type fun this thread is made to unite the ARAM Rules and its gaming community. As the community changes ARAM Rules it will be reflected here. I will do my best to not include my personal bios or personal rules as part of the standards but will express my opinions outside of the main standards.

These rules are to help summoners understand what the host means when they say "Standard Rules ARAM" or "Normal ARAM" Before a game starts.

These rules are to help everyone have a foundation of what is expected in the majority of games without the need to explain every single different rule in chat. This gives a host and summoners a chance to have read and understand a collective of rules which are currently commonly used and in which host add variations to.
================================================== ================================================== ================================================= =================================================
What is ARAM?

ARAM means All Random All Mid. When ARAM was created it was designed to be a single lane fight, basically ignoring nearly all interaction or activity in any other lane except mid lane just like if no other lanes existed. MId lane is the path in which minions follow from one summoner circle across the map to the other summoner circle.
It is a Custom Game Random Champion Pick, in which all 5 players from both teams meet in the middle of the map, not allowed to enter Jungle and not allowed to leave MID LANE, blue pill, and or back to base unless you die. Certain Items are not allowed which will be explained as will certain actions.

This Guide or Set of rules is to let you know what to expect when you join a ARAM game and the host does not set a specific rule variation and or states "Standard Rules" / "Normal Rules".

ARAM Rules Standards Simple version:
All Mid, no backing / blue pill
No Side Lanes,
No Jungle
No Snowball Items
No GA
No Teleport, No Revive

Since people do NOT like to lose and we find people doing what ever they can to push the limits and test how far they can go before people will call them cheaters. Or until people are forced to define and expound on the rules to make sure everyone knows the limits to play within and be fair.
================================================== ================================================== ================================================= =================================================
ARAM Rules explained:

All MID, No Backing, and No Blue pill:
Players must stay in Mid Lane from the beginning of the game until the end.

Nobody is allowed to return to summoner circle to heal or purchase items unless you are dead.

You are never allowed to B back to base. This is why Teleport summoner spell is banned to make sure this isn't abused.

No Side Lanes:
Everything outside the MID lane is supposed to be completely ignored.
Top and Bottom Towers in base are to be completely ignored.
Top and Bottom Inhibitors do not attack like the Towers do so they do not provide extra defense. This is why it has been commonly allowed to defend these from Minions.
It is not allowed to attack enemy Top or Bottom tower or inhibitor. By killing these it gives extra gold that did not originate with MID LANE.

No Jungle:
Not allowed to go into Jungle / Grass / out of the MID lane to far into fog of war.
Not allowed to kill Jungle Creeps, even if you do it from mid lane it is still NOT ALLOWED...

No Snowball Items or Guardian Angel:
Not allowed to use items that have a stacking ability such as Mejai's Soulstealer, Sword of the Occult and Leviathan.
Guardian Angel is NOT allowed

No Teleport, No Revive:
These two summoner spells are not allowed

Suicide
NA Servers Allow Execution to Minions / Towers
EU West servers do NOT allow intentional Execution to Minions / Towers, if you do get executed you are NOT allowed to purchase items.
Global Suicides Are NOT allowed, such as Twisted Fate or Pantheon teleporting to Towers past live enemy Towers.

In ARAM, once you're in the base, I'm pretty sure you can stray from mid lane. You can also defend inhib towers, not just inhibs, from the games I've played. Interfering with other lanes while you're harassing their base is a pretty common strategy, and it's definitely allowed.

** Everything I've stated above is things that I've noticed in nearly 95% of ALL the Standard Rule ARAM games I've played in the past year* They may not be how Every single person has ran them but nearly all of the ones I have played have been the above.

Since I have continued to see new people questioning what the Standard Rules are I figured I'd come on here and give an updated version of the said Rules which I've seen to be some what Standard when individuals state "Standard Rules" before a game starts.

I've not played ONE game in months where it was allowed to defend Towers in base of top or bottom lane just the inhib once the tower is down infact everyone throws a rage fit if you do defend a TOWER unless its MID only... Inhibs are the only thing that can be defended period Unless the host stated pre game that it is different.
In fact it has NEVER been allowed to defend a tower in base of another lane excluding once towers have been destroyed. Even in the rules that were written over a year ago stated it wasn't allowed.

Free roam in base is debatable but usually frowned upon because of the above not allowed to defend upper or lower TOWER or pull from upper and lower minion lanes to farm intentionally which is definitely NOT allowed which is why people usually complain every game in which it happens.

I've been seeing more frequently a OBD = Open Base Defense but that hasn't been part of "Standard Rules" more of an addition to said Standard Rules but not common.

If intentionally pulling minions from top and bottom lane was allowed in base then why not go ahead and play a normal game and play all lanes.. that's not the point of ARAM. Yes there are times when getting close to the nexus towers not intentionally pulling minions from other lanes but doing it intentionally is bad form just like pulling jungle mobs from lane is.

But that has just been Standard rule games I've played for the last ooooh 6 months or more.

Any problem with smite, I just got banned from a game for picking it, but I have never seen any rule against it.

personally I've never heard any thing saying it is Not allowed but I can figure a few reasons why some people would not like to see it.

they might think whom ever grabs it would sneak into the jungle and use it.

to me if its not abused then why not?

"Suicide: Global suicide should not be allowed since everyone cannot do it"

Add a "not" before "everyone." Also, Fortify doesn't need to be mentioned.

Ye, Fortify should be mentioned as NEVER USE.
Why you may ask?
Because it was removed from the game.
It's kind of impossible to use it if Riot removed it.

Once your inihib has fallen you may return to base when needed.

Assaulting in base: Staying in lane not intentionally pulling top or bottom minion waves, not attacking top or bottom tower or inhibs.
Straight up wrong I'm afraid. Not sure how it came about that you can't defend your towers. Not doing so hinders the fact that it is an ARAM. With towers down your sides get pushed which shouldn't burden you in an ALL MID game. Defending inside base only is allowed. Very rare do I see otherwise.


*Also I have rarely seen Teleport to be banned. That is a Host option.
