Riot Games continues to work on fixing numerous bugs related to the League of Legends client, and a new update suggests that a significant optimization could be coming soon.
The LoL client is still a problem for many players on a daily basis, and Riot continues to roll out updates aimed at fixing it. In the most recent update, Riot shared some new information around the current company’s biggest priorities. These priorities include an update to the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF), which will further reduce crashes, increase compatibility, and improve the overall user experience.
Currently, Riot is looking to roll out the new CEF update on the Public Beta Environment (PBE) in early August, possibly with a few patches rolling out after that. Riot’s other top priorities will be revisiting the end of the series, which seems to still have some bugs to work out despite recent improvements in that area. Riot will also look into client stability, especially in cases where a player has returned to the client from a PC in sleep mode.
There is still the question from the player side whether these updates will actually fix bugs for customers or if this is again a case of empty promises from Riot Games.
Should fans believe Riot can fix the LoL client?
For years, the biggest complaint against Riot was about the LoL client. Despite being the largest online multiplayer game available, the game’s client is full of bugs and slow loading times. Riot has been working on solving these problems for a long time, starting with first customer cleanup update last year.
In these updates, Riot shared the thoughts behind the client and the improvements being made to it. Increased transparency is great for players watching, but there still seems to be a long way to go. Even after eight of these updates, players from around the world are still reporting bugs that should have been addressed in some previous updates.
This has led a large part of the community to take a critical stance towards any new promises made in relation to customers. A general trend is that players want to see improvements in the action before they believe in them, which is what Riot needs to deliver. The customer optimization updates sound great so far, but Riot will likely need to deliver these optimizations in practice for players to be convinced.
If Riot manages to deliver on the most recent promises, then players should see improvements for customers in the latter part of the year.
