Could somebody please explain range better how far 50, 100, 200, 300, 500, 750, 1000 range is. How to range is used in abilities with a radius. And how far the range of a melee champions is (100 right?).

I would especially appreciate image and videos, because it's easier to understand since we're talking about ranges.

Thanks in advance for the effort of reading this and possibly helping me.

I don't know ranges exactly... I know the most common range for a melee champion is 100 or 125. That's literally right next to your model. I'm still wondering what the unit for measurement is.

The unit measurement is just called "game distance unit", so it's hard to say how much it is.
You'd probably need a game mechanics guy from Riot.

Try setting your "range indicator" for the old one (the circle). You cant tell exactly how far is 100 and 500 range. It is just something you learn from expirience.

Base ranges can vary from 100 - 175 for melee units and 400 - 650 for ranged units.

The highest base range for a champion is held by Caitlyn at 650.

Sometimes I feel "eh" about this. Wouldn't it balance champions more fully to make all range characters have the same base attack range? People love their range in this game, mainly because you can harass so much better with range moves, I think it shirks a lot of people from playing melee.

Not really, if you are ranged you have a different purpose and playing style than melee, if you have a high range like Cait and Trist you generally want to abuse it and harass with it, you base how you build off of your auto attack; but with lower range, such as Ryze, etc., their actual abilities are more useful for damage output (aka casters)

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

Place the mouse over the skills... it'll show the range indicator (circle)
