I submitted a ticket which was as follows:

"I cannot find in any of the forums, patch notes, etc as to why the live spectator mode was removed from the main screen. I found a brief thread about it but it had received no response from Riot or someone more knowledgable on the situation. With that having been said, I was curious if the live spectator mode which generally shows in the top left of my home screen had been disabled? Did I miss an announcement on it? If not, is there a way I can re-enable it myself? I really enjoyed that aspect as I'm not a very good player but do enjoy spectating people and becoming more familiar with spectator mode in general and better player's gameplay and tactics.
Any update you can share with me would be much appreciated...I know I'm not the only one wondering this so I intend to reply to the thread once I receive a response.
Best regards,
--------"

The response was the following:
"Greetings Summoner,
Thank you for submitting this bug report. We are aware of the issue and are working hard to get it fixed. Unfortunately, I cannot provide any estimate for the completion date at this time. To avoid confusing or disappointing our players we try to only announce these dates when we are sure we can meet the arrival schedule.
I appreciate your patience and understanding regarding this issue, and thank you again for taking time out of your day to send us this report. Please let me know if you have any questions.
from the ashes,
PhoenixKing
Riot Games Player Support"

I'd like to believe he hand-wrote this in specific response to my ticket but combine the fact that his response stated that what I was asking for was actually bug report (not my intention although I might not have been specific enough) and also how generic the response was, I doubt it.

Oh well, it is what it is. I do believe that if they could have it up without bugs, they would.

Best,

I doubt this is a bug. Looks like it's been disabled for some people, though why it is is beyond me.
Keep this thread up guys! We'll get some support eventually!

The team is working on it. We think we have a fix for the issue but it still needs to go through testing on the PBE. It also requires a client patch so it's not something that we can just push live at any point.

In other words: it wasn't intentionally removed, and we want to bring it back!


Let's just sit tight and wait! =)

Bump.

Posted in a different thread before I noticed this one:

I've been getting this all day, too. This problem used to pop up occasionally when I was streaming or downloading or doing something in the background, but was always easily fixed by closing the client and opening it again. This workaround is not working at the moment (even with all background activity stopped).

An alternate method to watch featured games, say through a menu that ALWAYS loads, would be a welcome addition. I'm getting tired of closing my client and reopening it, hoping the problem has fixed itself.
