Cmon Riot! Seriously, this is such a simple, yet so big problem for many players, including me - and all you guys do lately is add new champs every week and buff/nerf champs if people cry about that.
It seriously cannot be so hard to program a free rotating camera, I mean I even saw that was possible in the past? The game is 3D, the engine 3D too (at least mostly) so it cannot be a problem can it?
You even got shiney effects like light bending implemented into the engine, so a free rotatable camera isnt much to ask for.
If you are not a RTS veteran who is used to free camera scrolling its really friggin hard to keep focus on your character and all distances when you are not the center of attention, especially on long range-ability champs.
Soooo many threads about this, apparently the people DO WANT THIS TO HAPPEN! Its a "free" game yea, but you guys are ambitious to make it great still dont you? That would definiteley be a step in the right direction, cuz honestly apart from a few imbalances in champs this is really the only REAL flaw I see in this game.
There are so many solutions too to this problem if programming a rotating camera is too hard:
1. (my favorite still): Completely free camera rotation (pan, angle towards the ground etc..) - heck you could even play this game in a RPG 3rd person kinda view then if you like to... (people should just be able to set the camera how they want...)
2. just "mirror" the map for the other team. Flip the coordinates internally and this should work out im pretty sure.. (havent thought this through fully.. but well you could also just rotate the camera 180°)
3. Let you chose how you want the camera to be locked... like.. make it possible that you lock tha camera with ur champ not beeing in full center (so you can view further down etc.. but that would still give an advantage to the bottom team)
So many good suggestions people gave you.. now please use some of that time you spent on creating new champs and skins etc on this simple issue..
I love this game, but this thing bugs me sooo hard.
And while you are at it.. although I also use that and its currently part of the game but its a bit silly that people can jump through walls with the right abilities (flash and abilities like that could do that.. but not a dash n stuff like that.. really weird and probably also not really intended like that)
