That was when i found out my friend was actualy a ******ed monkey so i punched him in the face.
you cant say ******.ed? silly censoring
why don't you try playing a skillshot champion on purple team and see how hard it is to dodge my Rocket Grab while repositioning your camera to Dark Binding me around the minions in the chaos of a raging teamfight... the long range champions are absolutely crippled on purple team, no matter whether you're playing with a locked camera or not.
the fact is that purple team has to spend more time wrestling with the stupid ****ing camera than blue team does -- this is a needless disadvantage which could be fixed with less than an hour's worth of effort by a programming intern.
the camera is the first major reason why i will never give Riot a single penny.
and now it's story time, gather 'round, children.
there once was a fansite which gathered statistics about LoL matches. this site was useful for all manner of interesting discoveries beyond just K
ratios and champion popularity (Ashe was most-popular champion by a huge margin for a very long time). one of the things discovered from gathering all this data was that Purple Team lost matches more often than Blue. by a large margin. and that margin never shrank. now, this could be caused by the match maker adjudicating teams with lower Elo to Purple, but allegedly the match maker tries it darndest to make an even match...
edit: dodged it!
