My Issues with Alpha Client
I have been testing the alpha client since the closed beta were I was accepted in the final week before the open beta was released. I have a few points i want to discuss in this thread.
1. The first issue I notice is lag/delay.
Often times when I queue up for a game, there is a delay of about 5-9 seconds when the graphics actually appear saying i am in queue. I tested this multiple times, and I use the part where it says the time waited above the estimated wait to see the delay. In champ select, I often experiencing lag when I want to change summoner spells. The animations also seem to cause me to lag when a champ is banned, causing me to dodge a game multiple times. It has gotten slightly better over the past few weeks as I was close to almost banning a champion but timed out due to lag. I searched to ban the champion talon, but buy the time taliyah and talon popped up in the search results i already dodged the game in ban phase. I used the hextech repair tool, and I dont think it helped that much.
2. Disable animations option in setting doesn't seem to work.
I have this checked ever since I received the client. I have no clue what the purpose of this button does, but I don't see any animations disabled. I would rather have an option that returns the fancy animations of the new champ select to an updated look of the legacy client champ select. A simple yet sleek design that could be touched up just a bit. So if there happens to be 10 bans it can fit them.
If i have any more issues that I am reminded of or have I will post a reply to this post. I am a lower end PC user, so the problem may turn out to be the optimization of the alpha client.
