I've seen many threads started about people having champs not responding and such but, I havent seen anything thats exactly what I've been having trouble with recently.
I've been playing for a very long time with the same mouse and keyboard, but ever since the Lulu patch I've been having my champ simply stop in place with no control. Even after clicking a spot on the other side of the map, it will just stop in place.
I thought it was just lag spikes like the announcement says you guys are working on right now, but I'm getting the arrows when I try clicking to move, and I'm able to talk to everyone and see everyone else as if nothing is wrong. There is also no speeding up like the lag is catching up to real time or anything.
People may say its my mouse but, I've watched myself die a bunch of times spamming the hotkeys on the keyboard and nothing happens.... yet I can still type to my team and they respond instantly as if nothings wrong. I dont instantly die or anything like some people experience with lag where they end up seeing their champ get hit but take no damage, then instantly they are dead. My champ sits there autoattacking until my hp hits zero, then once I'm alive again everything is fine.
I just thought it was really wierd that none of the hotkeys, even summoner spells, would go off at all, yet I can still hit enter and talk to the team. Clicking with the mouse still gives the green arrows at the spot I click on, yet no movement. Also thought it was wierd how I could click across the map, and I would randomly stop in place a few seconds, not being able to use any abilities (but can still talk to the team), everyone else is going about their business no skipping at all, then my champ continues on as if nothing happened.
These episodes dont usually last long, but are extremely annoying since they happen sometimes at horrible times, and again this has only been happening since Lulu came out. Come to think of it, if it matters at all... it seems to be happening mostly when using Leona. Although it does happen with other champs as well.
Sorry for the long post, just didnt want to miss anything.... If this is just that sporadic lag issue in the announcement then sorry for wasting your time, but this doesnt feel like traditional lag. Thanks!
