For a year now, there has been a bug in LoL that “turns” root into a stun and prevents from using basic attacks

Old League of Legends bug that bothers players and is still not fixed.


League of Legends is a game that was officially released over 10 years ago. Since then, it has been constantly developed and improved, but it also generates new bugs that are often discovered over time.

After all, it has been known for a long time that the Riot title has not been able to get rid of all kinds of bugs, exploits, or glitches for years. One of them is the bug with basic attacks which cannot be used while being rooted. What is it all about and how to get around this bug?

Stun instead of root

Probably everyone knows that in League of Legends skills that impose CCs are divided into several categories. Some make us lose total control over the character and we are not able to get rid of the effect even with QSS, and the other to some extent limit some functions, such as movement.

A great example of such a CC is Lux’s or Morgana’s Q. While we can’t move around in them, we are able to deal damage to our opponents with basic attacks.

However, there is an option in League of Legends that takes this away from us. It’s about “Click: player attack move”, that is, attacking with a key of character movement pressed if the target is out of range.

It turns out, however, that this option does not work if we want to use it after getting root. Then we have to right-click. How does it look like?

As we can see, a character only starts attacking when he has the ability to move, and if this is limited, he won’t deal any damage even if the target is within range. In such cases we have to use the right mouse button if we want to continue fighting.

ALSO – Another LoL character gets a visual rework after years of silence. Skill effect changes

People in the Reddit entry noted that it occurred for them many times when they were fighting someone. They were losing just because their character couldn’t attack. Some even thought it was their fault and they just got a strange lag.

At the moment, it is difficult to say if and when it will be fixed, because none of Riot Games employees has commented on this topic. On the other hand, the topic on Reddit is so popular that one of the game developers should notice it quickly.
