Doublelift is no stranger to being pull down, or vice versa-but there’s very little even the famous ADC can do when League of Legends itself decides to quit on him.

After beginning his stream last night with a dominant Miss Fortune win, Doublelift was up for a promo series to Master and quickly began queueing. The League client, nevertheless, had other prepare for him.

After accepting a match, the customer was stuck on the same screen for more than a minute before crashing. Upon restarting, Doublelift discovered himself in a champ select screen with no other gamers, prior to being booted out and dealt a queue restriction to his visible disappointment.

While match losses caused by server problems are apparently discounted for promotion matches, the bug triggered by this customer crash might have superseded all sorts of preventive safeguards.

League’s last significant customer overhaul came more than four years earlier, before the start of the 2017 season. While the visual enhancements were apparent, players have actually regularly grumbled about the client’s bugs, unreliableness, and loss of specific functions. Designer Riot even admitted as much in a post almost one year back.

“The customer is not in terrific shape. It’s got a lot of bugs, too much lag (particularly in champ select), and an entire host of concerns like memory leaks, crashes, freezes, and on and on,” Riot wrote.

Riot has actually pressed out constant bi-monthly behind-the-scenes post about its ongoing customer cleanup project, with the current, 5th post in the series released 3 months earlier. What was expected to be a six-month project has changed into an almost year-long marathon, and there looks to be a lot more work ahead.

League stays among the most popular computer game in the world, and is still king of the MOBA world. Long-time fans have learned to endure its inadequately implemented client-but sometimes, an unexpected crash can kill the state of mind for a planned night of satisfaction.

Unfortunately, Doublelift was unable to reverse the unfair deficit and stopped working to complete his promo series. North America’s greatest retired ADC will need to come back another day to continue his grind back to the top.
