[Updated] League of Legends 'challenges bugged' or 'tracking not accurate'? Here's the official word

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on May 13, 2022) follows:

League of Legends (also known simply as ‘LoL’) is a successful MOBA game developed by Riot Games.

The game developed over the years a huge community of players on PC. Later, Riot Games made the leap to mobile devices and tablets with the release of League of Legends: Wild Rift.

Returning to the PC game, League of Legends receives new content constantly. The company usually sends new skins, champions, items, maps and challenges from time to time.

However, League of Legends players are facing issues with current challenges as tracking and champion recognition is not working properly (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

League of Legends not recognizing all the player’s champions

The current League of Legends challenges are unlocked according to the number of champions the player has. So, the more champions available, the more challenges to complete.

But, League of Legends game is not correctly recognizing all champions unlocked by players. This causes multiple challenges not yet to be available to them (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).


Why are challenges so scuffed?

I can understand having everybody start fresh for gameplay stuff but the collection tree is just messed up, I own all champions and the Indomitable. Incandescent, and Invisible tree aren’t completed for me, not to mention I have every emote unlocked and that one isnt completed either so if riot doesnt fix it ill never be able to finish the challenge lmfao

League of Legends challenges tracking not accurate

Another of the elements that participate in the current challenges of the game are the mastery points. These are used to unlock more items and keep progressing.

But, according to multiple reports, League of Legends mastery tracking is not working properly during challenges.


The challenges completed by the player are also not being registered correctly by the game.

1- The challenges aren’t tracked well,
on top of the fact sometimes they aren’t detected, it’s hard to assess what challenge you did complete in game.

2- Some challenges are totally bugged,
i’m thinking specifically about the collection challenges, that tends to not be tracked well,
i have all champions in the game how come i only have 30% of all ADC ?

3- you should put some way to track and target certain challenges,
Completionists tend to prefer to target one goal at a time, not 80 at the same time.

Official acknowledgment, hotfix for the champions issue

The Riot Games team is aware of both issues. Regarding the issue where tracking doesn’t work properly, they reveal that it should be resolved automatically after a few games.

Hey! Currently, our teams are aware that some of the challenges have not been properly updated. This should be solved after a few games are played on the account. If playing games doesn’t solve the issue, please submit a ticket here:https://riot.com/3b4O2iy. ❤️~Paranoic

There is also news regarding the issue where the game does not recognize all the player’s champions. A fix for this problem has been deployed, so they recommend the following:

We have a fix being deployed worldwide for Challenges not correctly recognizing your champion collection. Wait 15 minutes, try to relog into the client, and all should be well.

We will update this story as events unfold.

Update 1 (May 16)
