I know it is a relatively long post, but I have a lot of information, and this has been bothering me for a long time now
Multiple people have been having a problem with Zed's recall in which none of the particles appear, aside from the blue rings.
This always happens, with his Classic skin as well as his Shockblade skin
But just recently I've been sleuthing around and discovered a couple of things:
When spectating, Zed's recall's effects ALWAYS APPEAR. On both skins. It's only when I actually play a game that causes his recall's particles to not appear.
Think that's weird? It gets even weirder.
When I play a normal game, and I see another Zed, I can see his recall particles. I see all the little red emblems that appear, and then I see a portal appear in his feet, that Zed sinks into.
But when I recall as Zed, nothing shows up. Ever. Only the blue rings that always come up with any champion's recall.
Even if I am playing Zed, and the enemy team has as Zed, I can see their recall particles, but not mine.
I'll link a thread that contains a r3dlog, but it might be outdated (I'm not sure how long these parts of the Zed Recall bug have existed as I have only recently discovered these anomalies relating to it). DxDiag is attached and I'll be working on getting a more recent r3dlog in a game with me and my friend both as Zed.
In that thread you will also see that a Rioter tried to help me to no avail. I was told to create a support ticket, which I did, but got copy-paste responses that did absolute zero in helping me with my problem. This was a couple months ago. The ticket has since been closed.
The forum won't allow me to upload screenshots so I uploaded them to Tinypic.
My settings are all maxed.
I've reinstalled multiple times (including Adobe Air)
I have repaired multiple times
This bug happens ALWAYS when I play Zed. This bug NEVER happens to enemy Zeds even if I am playing Zed. It is only my recall particles that are not appearing and this occurs 100% of the time playing Zed. Other players can see my recall particles, I can't, but I can see enemy Zed recall particles in an actual game and see Zed's recall particles when spectating a game. If I'm not playing Zed, but I have one on my team, I can see his recall particles. I have yet to meet another person with my problem in-game (though I have seen people with this problem on the forums) so I don't know how people with my problem would affect any of the above situations.
And now a little more personal; I feel really hurt by the way the game isn't allowing me to look at Zed's super cool recall when I play him myself, but I get to see OTHER Zeds with their fancy marks appearing as they port to their base in spectator mode as well as when I play normal games.
EDIT: I have included my DxDiag. I will try to set up a game with my friend with both of us playing Zed and get a r3dlog from that.
