The people that make these threads and upvote them really have no idea how much of a pain in the ass it is to change work that has already been implemented.

Is it a problem with LoL? Yes. Is it easily fixed? HELL NO. The client hooks into much of the architecture of various systems. What you think is a small change is actually a VERY LARGE CHANGE. Consequently, it's one of the things about LoL that is least likely to change in the short OR long term.

Always bothered me why battlefield would just chill but LoL client would act like an autistic monkey every time I clicked a button

Have they known about the crappy client for literally years? Yes.

Have they done anything to it other than aesthetic changes? No.

Every so often when I try to open the client, I get an error message and need to retry.
Most every time I try to login, I get an error message and need to retry.
Occasionally once I do get in, all I get in a black screen and need to reset the client.

Guh!

- 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.
