That's not what CodeMaster said


He even made it clear that using AIR was something higher-ups decided to cut costs, despite knowing that in the long run a client made from scratch would have been far superior.

^ so much of my points being proven..

Now let's wait for the screenshot or forum quote of the person doing exactly what I said; proving that said staff member is contradicting a statement he/she or another staff member said.

On another note, they kind of used the same kinds of excuses as to why we can't have forum avatars. The reality is that it just isn't a priority to them, so instead of telling us outright or at least considering it, we get random coding excuses.

Inb4 some random user posts a third party program or google chrome app that allows users to use custom avatars and share them in some kind of server.. showing them how easy it was.. oh wait.. it's already been done :/

All I can do is ask for your patience; there's a lot of solid engineering being poured into the AIR client that you'll begin to experience in short order and that's not a 'soon' kind of promise. It's a "next patch, and the patch after that, and the one after that". Hang in there guys.
So what you're saying is that we're stuck with this tumor known as Adobe Air for the rest of eternity. Right?

the problem is that CodeMaster got fired after a hacking incident.

You guys give us no hope on a new client. I'm getting disconnected so many times because you can't invest anytime into making a new one or just fixing the ****ty one you have now.

I'm done spending money on this company. You guy's are so lazy it's not even funny.
Adobe Air has proven itself a boss programming language for writing clients. No way can they spend the the 10ks it would take to replace it.

It's been like this for ages. Patience has dried up.

Listen here Riot punks, when I pay the princely sum of $0.00 to play this game, I expect the Maserati of all clients. It is just selfish of you to pocket that lump of dinero! >;(

Damiya, you're saying fixing the client is like fixing an airplane mid-air. Why not take down the servers for a day, I personally wouldn't mind to have the client fixed.
