I've been playing with locked camera for a while now (Well, I've been only playing LoL for about a week.)
It is quite comfortable, but it has an obvious problem. So my question would be should I play with locked or should I start getting used to that horribly uncomfortable unlocked camera?
Unlock ASAP. I've been there, too, playing Jax and thinking 'man I don't need to unlock this I'm melee anyway and I can check the map' WRONG.
Unlock it, it takes maybe 2 games of getting used to it (I promise this!!!) and after that you'll have way better map awareness and stuff like that.
The moment you are in a teamfight it's better to lock. But outside that, unlock.
Have it unlocked and practise this camera view in bot games to get accustomed to it.
In teamfights, its better to press/hold the space bar to centre upon your character..
Unlock it, or you'll have serious performance issues as Purple (team at top).
when iam running around i usually press down f1, it will lock the camera onto your champ as long as you are pressing the button.
you cant play without a free view around you, you wont see whats coming :d
i lock and i play good. i dont find any problems.
With a locked camera you cant watch other lanes or even further than you screen. This you need to play well.
