Petition for RIOT Games to support League of Legends Linux client
Kallestofeles commented on 29 May 2017 at 1:23 pm UTC

Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen of the awesome GOL community!

In our darkest times, we turn to our most desperate measures in order to survive in this harsh world... umm, no, actually, cut that, that's no good...

*Ahem*
Despite the last petition to RIOT games (3 yrs ago) getting rejected, we must push on. Thanks to MaCroX95, Sterky and me in the tank, we have compiled a response to RIOT's old arguments on the topic why they won't bring their League of Legends client to Linux - and thus would humbly request for your assistance in this endeavor. Below you shall find the Change.org petition which we have created and are hoping to reach even greater numbers upon than last time... score to beat is 4047 signatures! Let's make it happen!

Spread the word if you will and my humble virtual gratitude shall be yours!

Yours failfully,
Kallestofeles

I only played LoL some years ago and I hate MOBAs but I will support this effort every step of the way because of the significance of a big name like League of Legends.

I completely agree I'm not a biggest LoL fan, but I must admit that sometimes I play it with my friends and we have a lot of fun, it's them who can make the game interesting and unfortunately all who are not pro gamers prefer LoL over Dota because of easier entry-level skills.

We just need to show Riot that what they mentioned in that debate as reasons for bringing LoL to linux is a bad business move and disprove it, there are TONS of positives for them supporting linux. And it is a win-win situation because we on the other hand would benefit greatly from such a huge franchise.

Luckily that piece of F2P gambling software from a more than creepy company (Tencent... look it up, they are a big player in all sorts of oppressive stuff going on in China) doesn't run on Linux :p

I'm appreciated with what y'all doing (the petition), but I can't and won't help this petition because no thanks to Garena (hold LoL's publishing right in SEA). They're bunch of "unreasonable" people, that's all I can say without cursing.

I'm free from Garena years ago and I never went back.

Little bit add up:

Tencent have backing up Garena (some share/agreement or something I don't know much details). Yep
