  3. Anyone having issues with FPS or screen flickering this patch?

Basically title. Windows and my drivers are all up to date and I've had zero issues with any other game/device but League and that's not even consistent. Yesterday I had an issue where the screen would constantly flicker on and off in game only. I booted up some other games on Steam and had no issues whatsoever, so I'm pretty confident it's not my GPU on its way out. Today the screen flickering isn't happening but in two of maybe five games my FPS would hover between 18-25 when my PC usually goes to about 140 when uncapped. It's more playable than a screen constantly flickering, but obviously an issue. My only guess is that there's an issue with AMD Radeon. The game is fine in the loading screen until the little icon in the top right corner saying Alt+R for settings comes up. Then that flickers a bunch and my FPS is shot from there. It's almost like the game is running in the background constantly and alt+tab, rebooting the client, etc. all don't work. It's also an isolated per game thing. It's not like it's a string of games and then it resolves. Seemingly random as to when it happens.

Anyone having similar issues or know of what might be the cause? AMD recommendations just say "lower the graphics settings" and I already play with everything set to lowest anyways with a capped frame rate. It's not an issue of the hardware being too weak, so any settings tweaks for visuals won't help.

I have a 1070ti and have had no change this patch. League is more CPU intensive than GPU so there might be something there.

When I have issues I usually change the display from fullscreen to borderless or vice versa and for some reason that almost always does the trick for me.

You can also try the hextech repair tool if you haven't already.

I wish I had the discipline to not be lazy. Then I could verify that I'm bad because I'm bad instead of not playing enough.

I tried this last night and it ended up working for me. I switch from full screen to windowed and it fixes the issue. When I switch back to full screen the frames are fine, too.

I'm not worried about my CPU being able to run league, though. It's this one:

It's definitely much worse than higher end CPUs and even other value CPUs nowadays, but I built this a few years ago and it runs most games I've tried at max settings. Even League up until this week would run at max settings with 140 FPS without issue.

Same here. That tool doesn't ever help.

So it's a tool in both senses of the word :)
