is there a scale or reference of the distance that is used in game?

Not that ive seen.

Most of us get used to a particular champion to get an idea of distance. I main Sivir, I know Sivirs attack range is 450 (about to go down to 400 ) and so I have a good idea of what ranges are.

I expect the same will happen to you.

However!

It certainly would be a service to the community if someone were to take a screenshot of a tower and map concentric circles around it at 100 distance so everyone can have a better idea of the unit of measure in this game.

So which one of you will be the helpful forum person this time around?

I'm not sure, but I think how it works is that a champion with movement speed x covers a distance of x over one second.

For movespeed, yes. But hes asking for a scale.

All units (range, movespeed, targetting) are based on the same unit. Its all well and good to say that if you have 300 MS you will travel 300 units in 1 second, but that still begs the question, how large a distance is 1 unit?

Of course, considering how small 1 unit is, its probably best to show 100 unit concentric circles.

Yeah, but most people should have an intuitive idea of how far they move at say, 300 movespeed in a single second, so it's a start.

No argument.

That doesnt change the fact that it would be a good resource to have. ESPECIALLY for new players. It takes quite a few games before you get an idea of ranges.

i have decided that i will take several screenshots and overlay the range bubble with each identified by their distance to give some idea to newcomers what the distance in game is. thanks for the feedback.
