LoL: Game-breaking bug forces Riot to disable Kayn

LoL: Game-breaking bug forces Riot to disable Kayn

This weekend, Kayn temporarily disappeared from the Rift — and for good reason, as the Shadow Reaper was seemingly able to strike the whole enemy team without even seeing them...

LoL: Game-breaking bug forces Riot to disable Kayn

Last march, a game-breaking bug appeared in League of Legends: when using Q - Reaping Slash, Kayn was able to strike the entire enemy team as well as jungle monsters, regardless of their or his position on the map.

Riot Games quickly fixed that bug that went rather unnoticed for most players, but it reappeared this weekend — thus forcing developers to temporarily disable the champion.

Although this kind of bug might seem incredible in a game such as League, it's not really the first time that a champion literally becomes broken because of that.

Because of such bugs, we saw Darius grab his enemies under the fountain during a recall, Azir using his Passive without restrictions at all, or even Pyke getting tons of heals thanks to his Q - Bone Skewer.

With two specific runes and only one item, the Bloodharbor Ripper can heal an absurd amount of health thanks to his Bone Skewer (Q).

League of Legends has been around for a decade now — but it's not surprising that in-game bugs of this magnitude still occur as the game continues to expand and evolve. As a consequence, it makes no doubt that we'll see more of them in the future...

New game modes soon?

In "Ask Riot", Riot Games talks about the future game modes of League of Legends, as well as Prestige edition skins and announcer packs.
