Greetings fellow Summoners! I'm Faerlina Sin and this is my take on a guide for the League of Legends Custom Game Mode: Hide and Seek. I first discovered League: Hide and Seek at the beginning of Season 3, when I looked into custom gaming. I haven't played since its inception, but I've played more Hide and Seek games than I'd care to admit. Over my extensive time playing this game mode, one common theme emerged: Disagreement on the rules. Everyone had a link to a different forum post, every forum post had a different set of rules, the rules were never updated for the constant changing of League of Legends, and this led to increased frustration in the custom community. This commonly resulted in trolling in about 80% of games. My goal here is to create a set of rules that everyone can respect; a set of rules that's fair to both hiders and seekers while maintaining the fun and excitement that comes with playing League of Legends.

Basics of Hide and Seek

The Basics

Hide and Seek is by far the most popular and easily recognizable custom game mode currently played in League of Legends, claiming its crown after ARAM graduated from Custom to Riot-Endorsed.
    - This is a 5 vs. 2 Game Mode. 5 Hiders on the Blue team and 2 Seekers on the Purple team.

    - Seekers have 40 minutes to kill each Hider 5 times.

    - More often than not, Hide and Seek is played on the Dominion Map in Draft Mode.

Sounds simple, right? Now, the two roles (Hider & Seeker) have their own rule sets, which I will cover in the next section. For now, let's take a look at some shared rules.

General Rules


- No objectives may be captured on the Dominion Map.

- Both sides may take their respective Storm Shield. However, Hiders will immediately lose Grace if they try. Grace is explained in the Hider Specific Rules section.

- Only 2 slowing items are allowed per team, 1 active and 1 passive.
Passive Slowing Items:
Dead Man's Plate
Frozen Mallet
Iceborn Gauntlet
Rylai's Crystal Scepter

Hider / Seeker Rules

Hider Specific Rules

Banned Items for Hiders: Sunfire Cape, Thornmail, Guardian Angel.

- Hiders that have been killed five times must stay on their spawn platform, on the outer ring, or on the storm shield. They may not run around in the jungle or areas obscured by fog of war.
- Hiders that have lost all five lives may not impact the game. For example, Lee Sin may not Safeguard / Iron Will to a hider that has already lost all of his or her respective lives.
- Hiders may use only abilities that apply natural CC (Slow, Stun, Silence, Blind, Snare, Fear, Taunt, Grip, Knock-Up, Knock-Back, Throw, Exhaust, True Sight, Polymorph, Charm, Suppression), dash/leap/blinks, shields, movement speed increases and heals.
- Recently respawned Hiders are given a 0:30 grace period. If attacked or followed in this time, grace is reset and Hiders are allowed to recall to recover any missing health.
- Taking the Storm Shield forfeits grace.
- Items such as Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Iceborn Gauntlet do not convert an ability (i.e. Singed’s Poison Trail, Ezreal’s Mystic Shot) into allowed CC.
- You may not recall at any point during the game, unless you are attacked on grace.
- You may not auto-attack. (Example Exceptions: Udyr's Bear Stance Active and Nautilus’s Staggering Blow.)
- You may not interrupt the recall of a Seeker.
- Hiders must give seekers time to recall upon falling below 300. A seeker cannot recall if they are being damaged (i.e. Zyra's plants, Glacial Storm, etc) or silenced (i.e. Soraka's Infuse).
- There is a maximum of 2 Hiders per bush.
- You may only place 1 trap/warded item per bush ( Noxious Trap, Jack In The Box, Yordle Snap Trap, etc.)
- You may stand on the first step of your base; however, you may not move up any further.
- A Hider cannot return to base to buy; you may only buy after you have been killed.
- Executes count as deaths.
- Hiders may not buy any AP items aside from Wooglet's Witchcap, Archangel's Staff, hextech sweeper, Twin Shadows, Rod of Ages, Moonflair Spellblade, Frost Queen's Claim, Ardent Censer, Athene's Unholy Grail and Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
- Hiders may not use Ignite

Seeker Specific Rules

Banned Item for Seekers: None.

-You may not leave base until 2:00
- Oracle's Extract, Hextech Sweeper, The Lightbringer and Grez's Spectral Lantern are not allowed until 15:00.
- When your health falls below 300, you must recall immediately. If you do not, Hiders are allowed to kill you.
- A Seeker may recall at any time. They may not, however, cancel the recall if there are Hiders in view. If the seeker chooses to interrupt their recall with hiders in view, the hiders may kill the seeker.
- Seekers may not use Clairvoyance

Universal Ban Suggestions

Universal Ban Suggestions

These are NOT Perma-Bans. Merely suggestions.

Hecarim - Known for her incredible speed and mobility, Sarah Jessica Parker is one formidable champion. The massive speed steroid from Devastating Charge can cause her to seemingly vanish from the map, and if she happens to crash into a hider, they'll be lighting a single candle for half their missing health. Onslaught of Shadows can also navigate over nearly every structure.

Kassadin - Kassadin's Force Pulse applies a mean slow whilst sporting an incredibly short cooldown and I don't think I really need to explain why Riftwalk is amazing in both roles... But I will anyway. The health relics found around the map make subsequent Riftwalks a lot less painful, even with their devastating mana cost. This allows Space-Squid to stick to the vast majority of hiders, or elude the vast majority of seekers.

HIDER Kha'Zix - Robo-Bug's triple invis from evolved Void Assault combined with the range and low cooldown of evolved Leap means trouble if you're a seeker without hard CC or an instant gap closer. By the time you reach the other side of the wall he Leaped over, he'll be halfway across the map.. And that's assuming you actually saw which way he flew.

SEEKER Kha'Zix - Another snowball assassin, Kha'Zix can one shot most squishies with minimal effort. Thanks to the isolation damage from Taste Their Fear, coupled with it's missing health % damage, this ability can easily take out over 50% of a hider's health. Void Spike applies a slow while Leap makes Kha'Zix very sticky. And since that clearly isn't enough, he has his Void Assault to sneak up and devour you. Good luck with that.

Udyr - Thanks to his passive, Monkey's Agility, coupled with his Bear Stance speed steroid, Udyr is a VERY difficult champion to catch without some form of hard CC. His stun from Bear Stance may only be 1 second, but that's really all he needs to disappear back into the fog of war. Conversely, as a seeker, Tiger Stance can rip you to shreds if Udyr has built any form of Attack Damage or Critical Strike. Bear Stance's stun will last for days and the increased move speed will make him very difficult to outrun. Udyr is scurry.

Suggested Hider Bans

Suggested Hider Bans

Evelynn - Shadow Walk. Does anything else need to be mentioned? The only way to find Ms. Evelynn is with an ability like Twisted Fate's Destiny or Rengar's Thrill of the Hunt, barring she doesn't walk over a turret with true sight or run into a seeker. Dark Frenzy is also an incredible move speed steroid that breaks any current slowing effects, not to mention her Hate Spike procs the passive.

LeBlanc - The Deceiver is one slippery witch! Her Distortion not only gives her the ability to blink over most walls, but she can also teleport back to her original location. LeBlanc also has her Ethereal Chains for the root. She can, of course, Mimic these spells as well for additional CC and escapes.

Rammus - Essentially this cute little armourdillo boils down to Powerball and Puncturing Taunt. The former just makes him a speed demon who can outrun pretty much any seeker and the latter can be used to assist your fellow hiders if they're being harassed.

Shaco - Whether he wants to Deceive around to juke, Two-Shiv Poison a seeker to assist his fellow hiders, or use his Hallucinate to mess with your mind, Shaco is a very slippery hider. Not to mention a strategically placed Jack In The Box can completely ruin a seeker's pursuit.

Teemo - His passive, Camouflage, makes him annoying to locate before Oracle's Extract and like-items become available at the 15 minute mark. The slow from his Noxious Traps, coupled with Move Quick, can also make him incredibly evasive when Camouflage isn't enough.

Twitch - This disgusting sewer rat can be obnoxious due to his AoE super slow from Venom Cask and speed steroid / low CD invis from Ambush. With full CDR and max rank, Ambush can be almost as annoying as Shadow Walk WITHOUT the benefit of proximity-based vision.

Zilean - With the right amount of Cooldown Reduction, Zilean can have 100% uptime on his Time Warp, thanks to Rewind. He can also use his Time Warp to slow a hider by a massive amount for an obscenely long time. His ultimate, Chronoshift, may look incredibly overpowered as well at first glance, but don't purposely die to proc it. Zilean's strength is speed, and since Chronoshift forces him to stand still to resurrect, the seekers will likely one shot up upon revival.

Suggested Seeker Bans

Suggested Seeker Bans

Akali - Mortal Kombat's Jade has always had a certain finesse for slaughtering those unlucky enough to meet her kamas, and this game mode is no exception. The three charges of Shadow Dance make her stickier than honey while Twilight Shroud slows you down, speeds her up, and just in general ruins your day.

Ashe - Frost Shot is a built in permaslow. Volley procs her Frost Shot permaslow. Hawkshot is free vision. Enchanted Crystal Arrow is global hard CC, provided you can land it. These, my friends, are the reasons you see the Frost Archer banned in nearly every Hide and Seek game.

Lee Sin - Definitely Not Bruce Lee has made a name for himself as the most mobile Ionian man of all time. The deceptive width of Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike makes sidestepping... shall we say "difficult." Once he's on top of you, Tempest / Cripple makes sure he stays there; finish up with a nice Dragon's Rage to the face, and you're dead. RIP.

Master Yi - You had to know this was coming. Alpha Strike is a targetted blink ability that deals massive damage with the ability to crit. Wuju Style deals bonus true damage, so have fun with that armour. Highlander makes Master Yi pretty much impossible to outrun. Yes, I am bitter. I hate Master Yi.

Nidalee - Nid, Nih-Dolly, the Bestial Huntress.. Call her what you want, it matters little.. She's going to Spear. Your. Bum. Then eat your face. Human Javelin Toss / Takedown will easily do over half your health if you're squishy, followed up with a hunted cougar Bushwhack / Pounce and cougar Javelin Toss / Takedown. Missed the spear? That's okay. The field is littered with Bushwhack / Pounce traps. All she has to do is wait for some helpless Teemo to step on one. Dinner time.

Rengar - Notoriously hard hitting, Rengar can usually rip a target to shreds the moment he finds one. His Unseen Predator makes running through the brush to escape him... Problematic. Bola Strike allows him to stick to most targets with ease. Thrill of the Hunt reveals all champions within a wide radius while simultaneously stealthing the Pridestalker. Did you hear that?! No, probably not. Because he one shot you.

Twisted Fate - I'm only adding Twisted Fate to this list as I see him being banned quite frequently. Destiny is very annoying for the true sight component, but the teleport from Destiny is easily spottable and avoidable. His Pick A Card gold card stun can be rather troublesome, but if you can just stay out of his range while he has it active, you'll be fine. Twisted Fate can destroy careless hiders, but shouldn't be much of a problem for someone on alert.

Warwick - Another one hit wonder, Infinite Duress will lock you down while this puppy gnaws off your face. Hungering Strike has a deceptively long range with a pretty sizable heal. Round this out with Blood Scent constantly granting a heavy movespeed steroid and vision of injured hiders and you've got one beast of a seeker.

Suggested Hider Masteries

Suggested Hider Masteries

Always take 4/4 Sorcery in Offense and 3/3 Fleet of Foot in Utility.

sp M

Defense Tree Options

Tier 1 // Block since all champions basic attack. Recovery isn't all that useful due to the abundance of health relics around the map, instead allocate your points to Swiftness .

Tier 2 // Unyielding for the same reason as Block , Veteran's Scars for the bonus health.

Tier 3 // Tenacious It's tenacity. Less time on enemy CC means easier escapes. Juggernaut always for the scaling health. Hardiness or Resistance depending on what type of damage the seekers are dealing.

Tier 4 // Perseverance can help to top you off after a daring escape. Adaptive Armor if the seekers are one AP and on AD of equal threat. Reinforced Armor if they commonly crit. Evasive if they're AP.

Tier 5 // Second Wind on champions with self heals like Vladimir, Soraka, and Dr. Mundo. Enchanted Armor is free bonus armor/MR after items. Oppression if the seekers will be CC'd.

Tier 6 // Legendary Guardian A cool +3 armor / magic resist if one seeker is killing you and +6 if they're both trying to slaughter your face.

Notes: I've been less than impressed with the changes to the defensive tree when it comes to this game mode. The defensive option is still viable but speed has seen some nice buffs recently which lead me to recommend the Speed route unless you know you're going to out-tank seeker damage.

Always take 4/4 Sorcery in Offense.

Utility Tree Explained

Tier 1 // Fleet of Foot is required, more movespeed means faster getaways. Expanded Mind for the base mana, but it's mostly just a point sink.

Tier 2 // Summoner's Insight is great, more Flashes and Ghosts!

Tier 3 // Greed king here. Mo Money, Mo Items. Runic Affinity will extend the duration of the Speed Shrines located around the map and Vampirism can be a lifesaver if you're someone like Janna who is constantly using her spells. That extra +15 health just might save you!

Tier 4 // Wealth is okay, you'll get your enchanted boots a little sooner and leave the base a bit earlier. Meditation could be a viable option for champions who constantly sit at low mana ( Kassadin), but the health relics also restore mana, so consider that before using your mastery points here.

Tier 5 // Bandit is decent as it will provide you some gold income when you harass the seekers. Intelligence gives some nice CDR and reduces the cooldown on your active items, like Talisman of Ascension.

Tier 6 // Wanderer is why you go for utility, the movespeed increase. Remember that this is just like Boots of Mobility; if you take or deal damage, it goes away.

sp M

Notes: The full utility tree option is better implemented by champions that rely exclusively on speed and will likely be one shot if caught (think Miss Fortune). I might use this tree if I was feeling audacious but I personally don't think Wanderer is worth sacrificing the tankiness you get from going the defensive route if you're a champion with a lot of escapes (think Kassadin).

Suggested Seeker Masteries

Suggested Seeker Masteries

Always get 3/3 Fleet of Foot in Utility.

sp M
// Seeker masteries are incredibly more simplistic than Hider masteries. Basically, you grab 3/3 Fleet of Foot in utility and dump the rest of your points into Offense. Assuming you've used the mastery system prior to reading this guide, I think it's pretty safe to say you can do your own masteries. Above is an example build for an AD Seeker. I use that exact page whenever I seek as Vi or Riven. Warlord and Archmage really don't impact you as much as you'd think, so if you find yourself needing points, try taking them from those slots before any others.

Q: If I don't have any points in Defense, won't I just get killed?
// The short answer is no, it really won't impact you that much. Assuming you want 21 points in offense for Havoc , the best you can hope for in the defense tree is Juggernaut . Since you're seeking, and likely building glass cannon, it won't scale off very much and have very little impact. Block and Unyielding are also inconsequential since hiders shouldn't be basic attacking.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked


Q: Which Summoner Spells are the best? // Flash is a necessity on all characters, and Ghost is usually going to be your go to secondary spell. Cleanse can be decent on hiders and seekers to get around that nasty CC, Exhaust is also great for slowing someone down for the kill or halving the damage someone deals.

Q: What do I do if someone is capping bases? // First, try to explain to them that capping bases is against the rules. Have a player on the opposing team neutralize the base. If bases continue to be capped, unfortunately that game is over. Surrender at 15:00, or cap all 5 bases after conveying your intent is to end the game so you can move onto the next. Put the player who was capping on your ignore list, and try to find a game without trolls.

Q: Aren't there prebans? // No. Certain rooms may ban certain champions prior to the actual draft bans, but that's on a case by case basis. Hide and Seek as a game mode does not have any prebans.

Q: Can I use X Ability / Build Item X? // Every champion has been updated and all items permitted have been listed in the above categories.
