Riot can’t fix LoL’s infamous elevation issue because it’s way too much work

The infamous League of Legends elevation issue isn’t going anywhere, Riot Games has confirmed, despite the Summoner’s Rift map undergoing a series of huge, game-altering changes heading into the 2024 preseason.

The elevation issue revolves around how League’s river was designed; it secretly sits lower than the terrain around it. This means any abilities fired into or out of the river area may actually be aimed in the wrong spot because of the misaligned levels, and fans have campaigned for its removal for years.
