Recommendations on reinstalling?

So over the past few weeks I noticed my load times increasing and an increase in lag until it became nearly unplayable a few days ago. My ping and fps all looked about normal. I finally decided to uninstall and reinstall, and all of a sudden I'm no longer the guy with the wooden computer in the load screen and I have no more lag.

I was wondering if this was a unique case or if there is any recommendation on how frequently to uninstall and reinstall? I remember the ilol client used to tell you to reinstall every now and then because the client was too old to update though it may have had completely different reasons.

I've never seen any issues not re-installing, however this can be a good step in seeing if this resolves your issue.

I really don't know about that reinstalling issue, although I've noticed that while I used to be the first to load the game (1 year ago), it could take me sometimes now.


About the iLoL thing, it is totally unrelated. In fact, we didn't have to reinstall it (but doing so did work too), but to refresh the Wineskin engine (which meant going into the application bundle, and such). As the Riot Mac client isn't using Wineskin, we no longer have this issue. Totally unrelated stuff.
