My guess is it's mostly a lag/fps issue. I'm normally at a little over 100 ping and get it about 30% of the time, and my friends ping is fine but his fps is awful and he gets it a ton as well. Also it seems to happen more often when I'm in combat, which would point to an fps issue.
Not sure why it got 10x worse with the new HUD though. It's definitely a problem though, especially when you need your ult right when you get it.
Would love to hear from some others, especially if it's happening to people who do use the keyboard shortcut. A response from boourns would be super too.
fps/lag doesn't really make sense for this.
Several patches ago, Riot actually did change those buttons so that they register on mouse release rather than mouse press, and the result of that was the same. (The goal was to allow players to move the mouse off the button while holding the click to let them cancel the selection) It hit me pretty hard as well back then, as well as enough other people that Riot actually changed it back.
I would guess that the issue is something similar here, after the UI change. Granted, it feels a little better than before for me (I don't find myself missing a skill-level nearly as often). But I do notice that I still occasionally miss then. It's not as frustrating as before, and I'm getting used to it as it is now. But I still never felt like it was quite as extreme as it was last time they messed it up.
