I have mentioned this to a few people, but here is the official post.

The LoL client is complicated and gets messy after a lot of patches. If you are having random fps issues, or client crashes, or if you want to save as much space as possible, reinstall league. Make sure you delete any Riot games or LoL folders before reinstalling.

Do not forget to uninstall pando media booster asap.

I think I've only had to uninstall/install once because of an update.

It isn't about strictly needing to reinstall. My fresh install of league is a 3.3 gig folder with 8k files, go look at yours and see how much old **** is in there.
