This is completely correct. How can you argue with a fact? The screen locked is a disadvantage for every hero. There are plenty of times when your chasing someone to finish them off and they are just far enough ahead of you to where having a locked screen cuts them off but w/ an unlocked screen you can see both your hero and the hero you are chasing. Therefore you can better determine if you can flash for the kill or possibly see if an enemy comes out from the side to save his teammate. With a locked camera you cant accurately determine how far/ close they really are. I'm sure there are more examples too.
Best thing RIOT could do is remove the lock camera option. That way you learn the game w/o it.[/QUOTE]
yea... what reynmaker said...
the camera is Not directly over head it points to purple even if you are on purple team.
It is also cut off if you are purple team right at your feet and you can't see Anything.
It is such a disadvantage that I know 5 players in person and 3 of them quit playing because "the game sucks you can't see ****"
even with screen unlocked you have to move the screen much lower to see as much as you would on purple which limits control if you need to retreat.
Bottom Line; The game is not fair and instead of fixing it they rigged the system to make it less noticable for win/lose %.
