Good news: The bug is officially fixed, and everything is back to normal!

For some reason, when you lock the camera, then click on the mini map, the camera unlocks and does not snap back once you let go of the mouse.

Why wasn't this in the patch notes anywhere and how the hell do I change it back?

Frankly, pressing a button to move the camera back isn't going to fix the problem; it still will feel as unnatural as clicking the minimap, then clicking the circle when it was always done automatically.

Just make a huge check box that says "Make everything exactly how it ****ing used to be", please.


I know how to move the map around and I know that lots of people play without the screen locked. I look at the minimap and move the camera to other lanes frequently, which is exactly why it feels strange to not have the camera snap back when I let go. Please don't try to convince me to play without the screen locked because I am doing fine without it. There is absolutely no difference in map awareness etc. as I move the camera around with the minimap frequently by holding down the mouse.

Hello Wildleon,

Thank you for submitting this bug report. We have escalated this issue to our development team, and a fix is currently being developed. Unfortunately, I can't provide any estimate for the completion date. We don't want to release an unfinished product, so unexpected delays can force us to change these dates. To avoid confusing or disappointing our players, we try to only announce these dates when we're sure we can meet the arrival schedule.

Thanks again for the report, and I appreciate your understanding!

I play LoL with a locked camera setting. After the Lulu patch though, the camera has been acting differently. Before, you had your camera locked and clicked on the minimap, it would show you where u clicked then when you let go of the left mouse button it would snap back to your champion. It is now unlocking when you click the minimap and you have to relock everytime. it is very frustrating.
EDIT:

YAY

People are gonna crucify you for posting this, like they did to me. But its very annoying.

People will also tell you to press Y or spacebar. Which is a good solution, but I used spacebar to self cast some spells for champs. This minor change kinda messed up my key bindings

Bump. I still don't know why
1) None of these threads have gotten a response
2) Why you didn't tell us about this in the patch notes (which seem to note every insignificant detail such as "Re-timed Starcall's animation to sync better with Soraka's actions")
3) Why it happened in the first place

You should really try to learn to not use screen lock, it will help you overall as a player. I fortunately was introduced to this game without screen lock so I didn't have it as a crutch. It will seriously allow you to see so much more and expect what is coming.

You are gimping your team by playing that way.

People hate camera lockers, despite the fact that i'm a camera locker and I carry almost every single game whether I'm using a support or not won't matter. All they see is, it's a camera locker, he must be a noob. And I'm a person that doesn't feed and when I do, It's because I wanted to, and I usually come back from it. Locking my screen has not effected my map awareness and it has allowed me to evolve another skill: instinct. I am now able to predict and feel things as they are happening as my level of focus increases. By locking my screen i'm not worried about moving my screen constantly and I'm able to focus my attention to what's going on around me and understand what's happening with my allies better. I can only lock when on the blue side though, and I don't play with a locked screen all game when I do use it. I unlock at least once a minute to take a look around but if i need to take a quick peep then I don't need my screen unlocking because that would cause me problems. how many times have I died because I miss clicked because of screen positioning? Several. How many times have I miss clicked with a locked screen? Too far in-between to count. Locked screen may seem like it's for noobs, but it really comes in handy.

Doesn't Dyrus play with a locked cam? He just clicks the map to look around.

But really. My friend was complaining about this. There are quite a few people that just play bot matches. What is having a locked cam on bots hurting? Fix this Riot. It's hurting the player base.
