The other day, I was playing an ARAM (they are so much fun!) and decided to change my key bindings. I had made a few modifications to them the game before and wasn’t happy with them: I wanted the defaults back. So anyway, I go into the League of Legends options menu and reset my key bindings, then go back to the game.

Seeing that my team is getting pulverized by the enemy fiddle, I quickly right-click to go help them… But my character (Lux) refuses to move. I try again, and still nothing. I then proceed to frantically smash my right mouse button, yet to no avail.

My team then starts to rage at me, obviously:

-Lux afk?

-Lux, come here!

-OMG Lux noob.

-/all report Lux plz.

Since the chat still works, I try to explain the situation: I’m not afk, I just CAN’T MOVE. Unfortunately, they don’t listen and continue raging, while I sit there, powerless as our Nexus gets destroyed.

After we lost that game, I create a custom game vs bots to see if the problem persists…. and it does. I try disconnecting and reconnecting, restarting my computer, resetting my options to the defaults, yet nothing works.

Finally, in a stroke of genius, my friend (who is a computer nerd just like me), proposes that I delete my LoL configuration files. His reasoning behind this is that, since my problem started after I tried to change my key bindings; it’s probably that the configuration files got corrupt.

How I fixed it:

Taking my friend’s advice, I opened up windows explorer and navigated to C:\Riot Games\League of Legends and deleted the Config folder. Once this is done, I fire up League of Legends and… surprise surprise, it works now!

This pictures shows how I deleted my League of Legends config folder, thus fixing my problem

That’s it for today, I hope this helps out the people out there who can’t move in LoL!

Thanks for reading,

    I was just looking for this information for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.
