Nowadays, to download League of Legends or Valorant, you will automatically install Riot Client first where you can find all Riot Games that you have or could download. However, Riot Client doesn’t seem to have a feature that allows users to uninstall their game. You can only install, and if you want to uninstall then you have to do it through other methods.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to play Riot Games without Riot Client. So if you seek to delete Riot Client from your computer, you will not be able to play the games. Nonetheless, Riot Client can be uninstalled through the same methods mentioned above.

League of Legends remains one of the most successful games of all time. You can always find the game in the Top 10 most viewed category on Twitch. There are thousands of daily content creators for LoL. With the game’s success, Riot Studio was able to make an animated series that addresses some of the lore of the game. The series is called “Arcane” and won the Annie Awards.

Unfortunately, the game can be very unforgiving for new players. Alongside the mechanical difficulty for the champions, players also have to take in an immense amount of Intel. There are over 150 champions in the game. The map is also dynamic and changes its terrain every match. Not all players are capable of handling such requirements.

Because of that, many decide to stop playing and uninstall the game. Whether it’s new or veteran players, at some point they will have to let go of the game and uninstall it.
