How do people play with locked camera?

#1Rookie_JetPosted 2/20/2014 7:05:43 AM
I had a match last night as Teemo vs a top Mumu (yeah, wtf?). For some weird glitchy reason, my camera was locked from the start of the match. I hit 'y', I clicked the icon above the minimap, I tried to find it in the options menu, but it wouldn't stop locking (15 min in, after my first death, I finally restarted my client and it fixed it). Anyway, I could only see the caster creeps around me and had to get REALLY close to see the enemy creeps I wanted to CS. Even still, I was doing pretty well vs Mu and helped jungle Mundo get FB when he came up to gank. But later on, I couldn't see a bandage toss or J4 flag coming at all.

It's also hard to cs/place shrooms/do anything because my screen keeps freakin moving. A couple times I had to stop moving so I could be more precise with where I wanted to click.

I don't know how people play this way by choice. Maybe if you're Tryndamere or something, but even then, you wouldn't be able to see what you're spinning into.

Dunno. Works for replays and spectating, sure. But PLAYING by forcing your screen to move with you... That's silly.

I play locked because I'm used to it.


Why do people want to constantly manually move their screen?

Because preferences

I unlock to look at other places on the map, sure. But normally I keep it locked if I'm focusing on myself.

I play unlocked so I can see as much as possible. I don't need to see behind me if I know there's nothing important there. I would rather have my character at one edge of the screen so I can actually see the enemy on the other edge of the screen.

Holding space is too hard.

You can fix that by moving the screen with the minimap a few times.

I can't remember if I tried that or not. I'm pretty sure I did, but I'll try again if it happens again. It was a really weird glitch that's never happened to me before. I even tried alt+tab as that has fixed a mouse glitch I've had before where I can't move my mouse past a certain part of the screen. This one, I just had to completely reconnect to the game. It was lame.

It's happened to me a lot of times, you have to be alive and it usually takes a few times to work.

I played with a locked screen for more than over a year. Then I got a new computer and new mouse and figured I'd try out unlocked screen, and I've never went back since.
