Dev Doodles: Clash | League of Legends

Betas went smoothly. Players were hyped. And then Clash fell over.

This is the story of a night where nothing went according to plan, as told by the devs who were there.

The only unrealistic part of the video was League players being positive.

"We weren't sure if the problem was the Philippines or Clash..."

It's the Philippines. Problem's always the Philippines.

I think that it wasn't riot's fault...

Devs: “We all felt terrible. It was kind of a breaking point for many of us.”

My 5 man: “you guys just want to play norms?”

Riot: clash failed because of us....

Filipinos: nope. "PHILIPPINES IS THE PROBLEM"

I really love these cinematics. They are simple, but make me remember, that there are real people behind LoL who try their best to make game better and less bugged/balanced and if something goes wrong, i (like all players should) support them instead of writing shitposts on social media.

Hey, *Riot* 's, just for you to know, despite the _toxicity_ of some part of the community, in your adress,
I want you to know, that we ( _adequate part of the community_ ) are love you, your games, and what you are doing :)
Maybe, we are not always posting a comments, but we are here, with you. <3
We are all _cked up, sometimes, just *TAKE OVER* and keep it up. ^_~

Thats cool and all, but this was acceptable when clash was first launched, not a year later. Does this mean that league will always crash when u organize clash at the start of a new season ?

Pls pull it out from Garena. We want to use Riot accounts instead :<.

As a software developer myself, this video took me through a roller-coaster of emotions because we've all been there at one point in our careers and will do so many times in the future. It was a good reminder that even big companies like Riot are composed of people who also deal with these emotions/problems.

Can we have clash here now on the SEA servers? Or better yet cancel your partnership with Garena as they make lol client more buggy that already it is. This one time I tried to play league but the garena laucher is having a moment and wouldn't even let me click the "play" button to launch League, tried some fixes several times it did not work and I just gave up playing for that day.

can you maby now that you sorted out clash, work on a server for south africa or try and get the ping less than 300ms because its unfair that we have to play like that against the rest of the world with a 18 to 50 ms ping. it feels like i HAVE the same problem with everyday play you HAD with clash
