KNOWN ISSUES

Here’s a list of the biggest issues and bugs we know about in this patch. There's no need to submit a bug report if you run into these:

CHAMP SELECT

  • When transitioning to a Normal Draft from finishing a Ranked Draft game, players may see the wrong screen instead of the role selection screen.
  • After banning and locking your champ, the background music stops playing.
  • Error message appears if the ban/lock button is clicked repeatedly.

PROFILE

  • Mastery levels five and six still shows the mastery experience bar despite it always being full
  • Icons may disappear when dragging the client window.

COLLECTION

  • The tooltip that shows Highest Grade and Chests earned is missing
  • On the champion details page, players are unable to see the second QWE abilities of champions with multiple forms

SOCIAL STUFF

  • Long club names may sometimes appear incorrectly.
  • When players shift places in the club member list, their icon doesn't move with them
  • An invite that was sent from a club that has been disbanded will persist even after being accepted or declined.
  • “Help” feature of Clubs is not implemented yet.
  • Funky text appears when promoting or demoting a member.
  • Occasionally club chats will refuse to close within the chat window.

GENERAL

  • Players with lower-end machines may experience more than acceptable performance issues on draft pick. We're still working on this!
  • Patcher scanning may take longer than intended on lower-end machines
  • Various champion splash art isn't centered when viewing the champion mastery portrait in the end-of-game screen
  • Players are not able to initiate a full repair until after they log in
