League of Legends has been the jewel in Riot Games’ crown for the past decade, having amassed millions of players and spectators the game doesn’t disappoint. It also boasts of one of the biggest and most-watched annual world championship events in Esports. However, with the increase in competition and Riot’s new title releases, including Valorant, TFT, Runeterra and Wild Rift, people have started flocking to the other places to search for newer and hopefully better experiences.
In addition to that, League also has had its share of ups and downs. Massive patch updates have incrementally improved the game graphics and also brought major gameplay and feature changes, which has dissuaded a lot of occasional summoners from queueing up for matches.
If you’ve stopped playing League of Legends for any reason whatsoever — other games or maybe the new item update — and would like to get rid of it instead of occupying the precious storage on your machine, here is how you can uninstall League of Legends from your computer.
