Custom Modes.

LoL Custom Games

Custom games are created by the playerbase, each with their own set of rules. Because they are unofficial variations of the game, following the rules is purely honor based.

All Random All Mid

Oldschool ARAM

The All Random, All Mid (A.R.A.M) is a game mode that was created by players in the Practice Mode. It’s a very interesting game mode since it requires patience and luck to win. Since the game is mostly random, chances of obtaining an amazing team is based on luck. The gameplay consists of tower dives, ganks, and kills/deaths/assists which gives every player the opportunity to succeed.

Fountain Race

Draft Racing, Random Racing, Blind Pick

This mode is very simple from the surface but can be a lot of fun. It's actually not very much like racing, but more like capture the flag or soccer if your champion is the 'ball'.
-Lurathorin

How to play this mode?

In order to score a point, any player must get to enemy team's fountain and die there.
First team to get 10 points wins the game.
Good team consist of Runners, Defenders and Roamers.(See roles below)
Remember that a host may change the rules!

Rules

  • Players can only gain experience by killing enemy champions, no jungling or lane exp.
    This also means, that you cannot stay near the minion fight and leech exp.
  • All summoner spells are allowed except Teleport and Cleanse.
  • No Snowball items ( Mejai's Soulstealer,  Sword of the Occult and  Leviathan).
  • Player does not need to be executed to score a point. (Does not matter if enemy gets the kill or not.)
  • Losing team surrenders.

FAQ: You CAN do these.

  • You can use Flash to get over walls (but it is not necessary).
  • Recall to heal/shop.
  • Anyone can kill anyone, you can even gank.
  • If you are a Runner, you can also kill enemies.
  • Even if you are not Runner, you can also score point. Anyone can.
  • You may defend inhibitors if they get pushed by minions. But not before the turret is destroyed.

Roles

  • Runners

    Runners must get into the enemies fountain at any cost.
    Good runners have any combination of stealth, jumps, flashes, speed, and defense.
    Exemplary build for Runners:

  • Defenders

    Defenders make sure enemy runners don't make it into the fountain. Good defenders usually have a combination of crowd-control and burst damage. Some of the best defenders are Alistar, Blitzcrank, and Poppy because they can physically push or pull enemy runners from range into the nexus turrets before they reach the fountain turret so they don't score a point. Other good defenders have great slows or stuns like Singed, Sion, Nunu and Ashe.
    Exemplary build for Defenders:

  • Roamers

    Roamers are more rare than defenders or runners, and there is usually only one per team max, but sometimes they can make it very hard for the other team to score. A roamer's job is to roam around the jungle, warding and picking off enemy runners before they get to your team's defenders. Even if your roamer doesn't kill the enemy runner, they still made it that much easier for your defenders to kill the runners. Good roamers have mobility, cc, and sustained damage.
    Good roamers include Lee Sin, Wukong, Gangplank, Nidalee (for her traps), and Talon.

Bans

Since this is draft pick and not blind pick, the bans might consist of good runners like Rammus, Teemo, and maybe Gragas and flashers like Ezreal, LeBlanc, Jax. Alternatively, if team camptains are worried that the other team might turtle, they can ban good defenders like Blitzcrank, Nunu, Alistar. Twisted Fate and Pantheon would be good to ban because of their ultimates, but it would take them so long to get to level 6 by only killing champions that they might not be able to win it in time.

`5x5` & `10x` Duplicate pick (suspended)

`One for All`, All same pick

This isn't much of a `mode` itself, but rather just a way of picking champions.
5x5 implies that there are 5 same champions against different set of 5 same champions. 10x is a match, where 10 same champions play normal 5v5 game.

This method of picking champions, when combined with other custom modes, can be EXTREMELY fun. (For example the Dodgeball mode with 10x Nidalee or 10x Ezreal.)

News:

8.11.2013: `One for All` mode soon available!
8.11.2013: Early look at Featured Gameplay Modes.
10.10.2013: Jinx hotfix - duplicate pick disabled until its official release.
8.10.2013: Nobody will be banned. Official Riot statement.
6.10.2013: Astralfoxy comments on reddit.

How to play with all same champions?

To play such a game, simply join a custom game. After joining the lobby, make sure the Pick Type says `**practiceGame_gameMode_GAME_CFG_B...`.

How to create these games?

Hosting these games require modded client or a 3rd party client.
Note: These games can no longer be created since Jinx patch.

Note

  • Don't lock your champion.
    Though it is working whether you lock or not, people believe you can't lock your champion in, otherwise it wouldn't work. Be kind and don't lock.
  • At any cost don't dodge selection! (don't leave)
    This will cause the Lobby to stuck, making people unable to start nor re-create a game. It may also crash the server!
  • Some champions are bugged and their spells won't work properly. For example: Zyra's plant will get all the kills only to one Zyra in each team. You were warned. Don't complain to Riot, otherwise it may get you a ban ;)
  • Hosting these games may get you banned.

 

Playing certain champions in 10x pick mode may require special builds or agreements, otherwise the fun will be ruined.
  • Eg. AP ashe..
  • Teemo pick - no oracle and stealth detecting items
  • Nidalee pick - all cats only
  • Ezreal pick - 2AD 3AP, etc..
