The secret to success in League of Legends is communication and teamwork. Use these chat commands to connect with your fellow summoners.
Pressing Enter opens the chat console. By typing in this window, you can send messages to the other summoners in your game. Clicking Send Team lets you talk to your allied players without letting the enemy see. Clicking Send All shares your thoughts to everyone in the game who has enabled All Chat in the Options menu. By default, pressing Enter again sends your message to your team. If the chat console is empty, Enter simply closes it instead.
Private messages, or whispers, are messages only a specific summoner will receive. Type /whisper or /w, followed by the player’s summoner name, followed by the message to send.
/whisper SteveMcQueen The nine-tailed fox jumped over the lazy yordle.
Typing /reply or /r into the chat console will automatically send a message to the summoner who last whispered you. A summoner must be on your friends list to receive private messages from you.
For a number of reasons, there may come a time when you want to stop receiving messages from a fellow summoner. To do this, hold Tab to open the scoreboard and click on the mute button next to the summoner you’d like to silence.
Alternately, type /mute followed by the offending player’s summoner name into the chat console. Repeating this process will unmute them.
For those times when words aren’t enough, every champion has a full complement of emotes to help you express yourself on the Fields of Justice. Typing /joke, /dance, /taunt, and /laugh in the chat window will all cause your champion to perform the associated action in game. These emotes can also be bound to hotkeys in the Options menu for use at just the right time during a game.
The Summoner’s Code serves a blueprint for positive behavior on and off the Fields of Justice. The tenets of the code encourage you to play as a team, provide constructive feedback, build relationships and help new players. Read the Code
