While I do somewhat agree with this statement, the fact of the matter is, there's still tons of players who can't multitask as well as others. LoL is the first RTS I've ever played, and all of the other games I've played have the camera locked on your character, with your character looking forward, not at you. My fiancé plays Starcraft so she's used to the constant mouse flicking to the edges of the screen to move the camera around. I am not. I've tried, and it literally annoys the h3ll out of me. It's a miserable experience when I see I'm on purple side in champ select, because I know I can't play the champions I want.
I'd hate to call the inability to use an unlocked camera a handicap, but that's the way I feel sometimes. I also don't like to be belittled and made fun of for doing so. Almost every forum thread related to unlocked vs locked camera usage has at least one person that feels the need to say: "lol noobs, use unlocked camera" or "ITT baddies using locked cameras". Of course, they get away with it, because there is no report function on the forums, but that's a whole other topic.
Basically, I think there's enough evidence to say that this *is* a problem, and we deserve a change.
I've read all the posts that people have made and I'm not satisfied with band-aid solutions like flipping the UI to the top or changing the camera (which only hides the problem by making it less obvious during the laning phase). There is still a huge situational awareness penalty and problems with using long rage abilities. The purple/blue side view distance just makes it more obvious on purple side. How can we solve these problems and still preserve the things that people like about locked camera mode?
