However, this news has attracted criticism from fans world-over. Some fans had thought that their personal computers were not performing up-to-mark. Subsequently, other fans were infuriated with the constant issue that resulted in temporary bans since they were forced out of matches. Although, the developers have offered a sound solution that fans can use to prevent the issue.

The existence of horrible bugs, broken strategies, and so on has already caused a lot of problems. Naturally, this news was not going to get a positive response from the fanbase either. The Twitter thread attracted a lot of flak from the community.

Fans shared their frustration with the game on the thread, as the title continues to stumble with updates. It was not long ago when Omen and Sage’s glitches were causing frustration in the community, while the Killjoy turret bug made Haven unplayable.

This fan’s suggestion seems on point, as it is quite possible for people to assume the worst. Tech upgrades and services usually come attached with a hefty price that can cause problems.

Riot Games needs to take the problems of other regions that do not enjoy the same facilities as the first-world nations.

The stringent step against AFK players and toxic members has certainly worked out. This fan shared his experience post-patch, and how he suffered a ban because of his ill deeds.

Some fans continue to report the performance lag, despite following the instructions. It looks like Riot Games has a lot of work on its plate, and it must figure out a proper solution soon.
