    Post Garena PH, let's talk about the 2-client problem and how it ended

    Exactly a year ago, nagsimula ako na i-test ang LCU Alpha .01 sa isang internet cafe na may mabilis na net. Dinownload ko sya, and napansin ko na 4.96GB ang download size. This means, ang buong game kasama rin sa installation. Nakakapagtaka nga na buong game ay kasama sa testing suite ng LCU Alpha, while Riot's way is they download the LCU Alpha files alongside the then Legacy client, and may option sila na magpapalit-palit ng client.

    I've said it back then na mali ang ginagawa ng Garena na paghiwalayin ang Legacy sa LCU Alpha/Beta testing, because
    • Waste of space,
    • Waste of data allowance, kasi kailangan mo ring i-patch ang LCU Beta kapag may update na paparating, and
    • Player circumstances, like walang sapat na data allowance pang download ng LCU Beta (basically redownloading the whole game), etc.
    Garena should have done what Riot did when LCU went to Open Beta: ask the player if they want to try out LCU, download +/- 1.5GB of files, then upon client startup boot to LCU. And have the player the option to change back to Legacy.

    But Garena did the hard option, they still continue to split up Legacy and LCU platforms which is basically the same game with different clients. Ang Legacy client bago ang deprecation nito ay kasama na ang LCU files, and kung ginawa ng Garena ang ginawa ng Riot, hindi ito hahantong sa full closure ng LCU Beta launcher.

    Today, Garena officially closed the LCU Beta launcher, and ang mga users na LCU lang ang nakainstall ay hindi makakapaglaro for the meantime, unless idownload nila ulit ang LoL or makapagcopy sa isang computer shop. I was pissed na subukan ko kanina na makapaglaro using the LCU Beta launcher, and unsurprisingly "Server Maintenance" ang nakalagay. For a data-capped user like me and who only installed LCU Beta during its Open Beta cycle, this is a very bad idea. Not only na kailangan mo pang dumayo sa isang computer shop na may kakilala ka, you might shell out some extra money just for copying/redownloading the whole game again.

    I have some questions for Garena PH: What made you guys think that splitting the two clients is a good idea, when at the end you will terminate support with it? What's the reason why you guys didn't allow players to use LCU alongside the Legacy client, and you make users download LCU with the whole game in order to test new features?

    Since Garena didn't listen, some users took the consequences, and I am a part of it.

    P.S.: I did missed the Client Update AMA at Facebook, so parang dito na lang ang gagamitin kong communication channel para matalakay rin ng ibang Garena staff ang issue na ito, hopefully...

    eto rin tingin ko, unlike sa NA . dumadaan tayo sa garena client bago maka access ng lol . tingin ko dito coding limitations since iba ang may gawa ng garena client and lol . eto rin ang reason kung bakit yung ibang feature di agad ma i implement .

    sana mag hire sila ng mas capable staff and programmer para i resolve mga technical difficulties gaya nito. pero malay naten di nmn ako empleyado ng garena para malaman totoong dahilan . pero kahit na wala tayong magagawa mag kusa sana sila ayusin mga problema . dito lang sa forum yung mga mod sasagot lang pag chismisan ang usapan or pag mag close ng thread na tayo tayong mga players na lang nag reresolve ng kanya kanyang problema . yung mg spam thread jjusko hindi ba magawan ng paraan . kala mo walang admin tong forum sara nio na alng.

    When the LCU Alpha was launched last year i found out that the LCU Alpha LoLPH\Game folder is basically the same with the legacy client's LoLPH\Game folder, the legacy client runs from the AIR folder while the LCU runs via the LeagueClient folder.

    Basically i copied the required launcher and games files from the Legacy Client to the LCU Alpha, with a few bugs namely allowing an UNPATCHED LCU Alpha client to play on the newest patch when the legacy client is patched.

    This allowed my friends with mobile data allocation problems to play the game and patching is eased by downloading the patch using offpeak hours time-based promo (e.g. SMARTS giganight).

    This approach lead to a smoother transition to the newer client update...

    May mga features pa ngang hindi na implement dito sa league client ng ph gaya ng Replay System at live patching.

    Di ako mag eexpect ng live patching kasi di sa garena ang League client so sa garena client parin tayo mag papatch.

    Wala parin nga yung ibang animation eh
