If you keep in touch with news coming out of the UK, you’ll know that Prime Minister David Cameron has spearheaded the introduction of a new, nation-wide anti-pornography filter that ISPs are forced to abide by when delivering content. There’s just one small problem (well actually there are a lot of problems) — League of Legends players are now being blocked from receiving their game updates.
According to a post on the official LoL forums, the problem is that some of the filenames required for the patch actually contain letters which, in sequence, spell out the word “sex”, such as “VarusExpirationTimer.luaobj” and “XerathMageChainsExtended.luaobj”. This is causing them to be flagged by the filter and blocked.
So spare a thought today for your summoner friends in the UK, and take a moment to remember how close we came.
