League of Legends Bug: Recall to the Moon

LoL's most recent patch introduced a game-breaking bug that could slingshot champions across the Rift.

It's never a shock when a League of Legends champion is disabled because of an in-game bug. Usually it's something minor, such as "anything this champion does will instakill the enemy nexus." However, ranked queues were disabled yesterday due to a bug that very well may have affected the entire roster.

Let's get ready to recall!

Skarner's a terrific host, inviting Jax over for a cup of hot laser to the face.

The bug essentially allowed a champion to cancel their recall, though the results differed from champ to champ. Fortunately, not all of them has a skill that immobilizes and drags their enemies behind them; though the bug was still pretty ridiculous across the board.

Riot did fix the bug as quickly as they could, putting an end to the hilarity. It is a bit of a shame though; I'm sure Forecast Janna would have loved reporting the chances of assassin Braum falling from the sky.

    Yeah, apparently a ton of random champs could pull it off. It's such a weird bug.

    Oh my. So many hearts haha. You're welcome, but I don't know; I would have loved to be a part of this madness.

    I wonder what sort of coding error had to be made in order to cause this madness... I've never seen anything like this in Heroes of the Storm or DotA 2.

    I was also confused by this, particularly because no changes were slated for the recall mechanic.
