Many League of Legends players have long awaited improvements to the game’s client, and Riot Games, the developer behind the popular MOBA title, promised just that with their Client Cleanup Project in 2019. However, players are now expressing their disappointment as the project seems to have gone stagnant, with little to no updates and no communication from the developers.
A Reddit thread on September 18th highlighted players’ frustrations, with one user stating, “It’s safe to say that the project is pretty much dead at this point.” This sentiment was echoed by numerous upvotes and comments from players who shared their own experiences of bugs and crashes in the client that have persisted for months.
The League client has been a subject of criticism for years, but August 2021 brought hope as Riot Games implemented major changes as part of the Client Cleanup Project. An official blog post promised more frequent updates to improve the reliability and performance of the client. However, since Patch 11.17, there have been no significant changes or mention of the project from Riot Games.
Speculation among players suggests that the team working on the Client Cleanup Project may have disbanded, leaving the future of the project uncertain. Some players are holding onto the hope that a significant update will be released in the future, potentially coinciding with the end of Season 13 and the upcoming 2023 World Championship.
It is clear that players are desperate for improvements to the League client, but Riot Games’ silence and lack of updates have left them feeling disillusioned. The fate of the Client Cleanup Project remains unknown, leaving players to wonder if their concerns will ever be addressed.
