Seriously RIOT. Invest money in getting a new client.

Pvp.net is not the client of a competitive game. It shouldn't even be worthy of being the client of Adventure Quest or some other crappy online game.

No one enjoys using your client. It's not a pleasant application to use.

So please do us all a favor and give us a client that doesn't use Adobe AIR. A client that doesn't crash constantly, and maybe, just maybe, a client without a hideous interface.

It would be nice to see the client:

- Not have UI lag on hilariously beefy machines
- Preload the shop so that it doesn't take forever
- Synchronize your masteries the way it does runes (duh?..)
- Have chat without chronic disconnection issues
- Lobbies that work (anyone ever have someone mysteriously not be in queue?)
- Not use Pando Media Booster for the initial download
- Remember multiple usernames
- Smarter lobby defaults (no, I haven't played Dominion in months, stop trying to trick me with your sneaky defaults!)
- Allow you to set options and keybinds out-of-game
- Have a lower memory footprint than 200 MB just to launch (lol?)

As far as I'm aware, these complaints have all been valid for at least a year, some longer.
I suspect several of these could be solved or improved simply by creating a new client not dependent on the Air platform.

I wish I could upvote this more than once.

I'm in the beta, it's nice but not leaps & bounds better, sadly.
