: Still having FPS issues? READ THIS!
Im happy for you that it worked out, but most of the users that got FPS issues got another problem than you. They got machines that should be able to run LoL fine in all kind of quality settings without any drops and it does not matter if I play on high or low settings, my FPS-rate does not change. And to add, with those settings League of Legends just looks ugly.

: The problem isn't fixed at all!! Still low fps! Im trying to play with almost everything setup on very low. Before minions spawning - 100-120 fps, after they spawn - 60-80, after laning phase - TOTALLY UNPLAYABLE! 8.7 made it really worse Windows 7 64-Bit Intel Core i7 2670QM CPU @2.20Ghz 2.20GHz 8GB RAM GeForce GT 540M 2GB I know the graphic card is old, but i've played the game before patch 7.22 with everything on very high. After 7.22 things are getting worse!
I can only speculate, but I often read from people with a quadcore with a low clock speed, in your case 2.20 GHz that that is the main reason for a bad perfomance in LoL. I got a Notebook with an I7 6700HQ and a GTX960M there was no way I could push 144FPS constantly on this machine. In the late game I was reaching 80-90FPS. Koalifier from Riot Games pointed out something similiar, I just quote him here: > One thing that could feel weird is that League is generally single threaded, so having a beefy multi-core CPU doesn't help you run league faster (on the other hand, having an old, single or dual core CPU doesn't hurt you). That's the scenario I can think of where upgrading might not improve your performance. Important here is to stress, that this is just something I read on forums often, not officially confirmed of Riot Games or an employee from them. And as you said, you were playing on very high before and it worked, so it also could be really related to some changes in the game itself or the backend services. But thanks for your observations.

: I just played a game and yes, still lagging ALOT. It is so annoying to play adc in teamfights with 20 fps. What should i do with this problem? Should i reinstall the game
Here are some things you can try to at least eliminate some factors that could affect your FPS: * You can try out the Hextech Repair tool and repair your installation with that * The next thing would be to check if your drivers are all up to date. I know that are things you hear every time, but is important to check on that to really be sure they are not the problem. * Another thing would be to check the power settings of windows to be sure nothing is throttled by the power settings there. * If you use Windows 10 it is important to make sure XBOX Game DVR is disabled, a tutorial can be found [here](https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6239-DZCB-8600) * In your graphic card settings check if the power settings are set to max. perfomance * In the task manager you can set the priority of LeagueOfLegends.exe to high, in some cases that seemed to help people * I don't know on which monitor you play, especially with what HZ-rate, but you could try to disable vsync in the graphic cards driver and ingame to check if that gets you more FPS. * Often heard but at least worth a try, if you use an anti virus program, disable it for one game and test if that influences the fps, turn it on again afterwards. * Set all video settings to the lowest possible value, just to check if that influences the FPS at all Let me know if any of that helped at all and what the results of your tests were.

: I think that the patch 8.7 made it worse. My fps has been low for couple of months but the recent patch made it actually unplayable :( idk what to do
Did you play yesterday or friday afternoon-evening? A hotfix was provided and least for me the fps went up again, not much but its stable and playable again without tearing and sloppy images.

Thank you, is your FPS problem related to the release of patch 8.7 or did you have that problems before and can you remember when they first appeared?
: FPS DROP
I created a thread here about the FPS problems some of us seems to have. [FPS Problem: An everlasting story and becomes worse with nearly every Patch, when does Riot react?](https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/help-support-en/2nR1cEXn-fps-problem-an-everlasting-story-and-becomes-worse-with-nearly-every-patch-when-does-riot-react) But in your case, I might ask you some questions, are your ingame video settings, the power settings in windows and the settings of your graphics card driver exactly the same as before? Also make sure under Windows 10, the XBOX Game DVR is disabled, a tutorial how to do that can be found [here](https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6239-DZCB-8600). Let me know if this helped.

Hi, I collected all the information around the FPS-problem and made a huge thread, to provide as much information as possible, please post there so we have one place where Riot Games can respond and deal with us having the problem. Also an riot employee on reddit confirmed that they release a fix in the 1-2 days to fix this. The links to those comments are also in the thread.

: **Tried this and it seemed to help stabilize the frames:** _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Firstly, you will need to locate your "League Of Legends" folder that is inside a "Riot Games" folder. Then click the first folder which should say "Config" and you should be able to locate the game.cfg file. Find the file and right-click it. Next, choose "Edit."

Yesterday was having frame lag outs of about 15 fps and just played one that had a solid 60-80 fps the entire game. Either Riot did something overnight or this really did help** (using a laptop)
As I wrote in my update post, they did release a hotfix that should fix the FPS problems that happend since the release of patch 8.4. In my case the FPS and the image quality went to acceptable again, still far away away from what my machine could provide.

: hello men, i have huge fps drops when i "Alt+Tab" game almost crashes, goes from 200 fps to 5, for 30, 40 sec, you can help? i have an i7 6700, 1060 6gb 16ram
Did you try to play on borderless and then switch to another window? If so, does that make any difference?

: SHIT! 😤 This update patch that was suppose to fix some FPS issue - just made things worse on my part. As in: even if the FPS went down to 20 FPS in a team fight - i could still play before (i could still move the champ and do something). After this FIX - i'm back to that old issue - where in team fights the FPS drops so low that all i see is pictures for couple of seconds (as if i'm playing at 3 FPS). The screen/game fezzes when it matters the most. 😩
Can you post your system specifications and the settings for your graphics card and ingame settings?

: i report the problem to riot http://prntscr.com/j24mw5 [](http://prntscr.com/j24mw5) and they fixed if sombody still have fps problem text me
As you can see here in this thread, more than enough people still got FPS issues and most of them had them before 8.7. As Koalifier said, this hotfix fixed problems that were going back around patch 8.4, I had issues before and many others too, they were not fixed with that.
: Funny how no Riot employees have commented on this post yet. Seems the heat is getting to them {{summoner:14}} LoL literally feels unplayable these days {{summoner:3}} {{summoner:3}} {{summoner:3}}
I do not know the exact reason why they aren't commenting on this thread here or others in the forum. But my impression from the support ticket I wrote about it and how Koalifier acts at the reddit thread is that they do care. But I also understand that this seems to be a problem that can't be fixed by simply pressing a button or just turn something off. My hope is that this thread and all of your reactions just put that topic in the focus of Riot Games for the upcoming patches so this problem gets solved and we do not need a thread like this :)

: Issue might be related to playstv and other game recording overlays. It seems that whenever league is active, any recording overlay gets overloaded and slows the computer down. It seems to be the escalation of Discord bug, since apparently Microsoft gaming overlay causes same issues, as well as MSI overlay
Especially under Windows 10 and their XBOX Game DVR your tip can resolve a lot of issues, true! In my case I run League of Legends under Windows 7 and not overlays are used or even installed.

What were your average FPS-values before and do you remember since which patch that changed?

: Wowo getting pissed about having 120 fps. You can play with 60 or a bit more perfectly, the game goes fluid, its the same experience. Ive even played with 30 whitout toomany problems. I thought this post was about that when you die in the game, it freezes by a second.
On a monitor with more than 60HZ that is a serious problem. So your post does not help anyone since you do not even understand the problem.

: You won't be finding any help here without sending a ticket to support. All motherboards have backdoor inactive graphic chips that only can be accessed by certain code. It's there to prevent total lockout on manufacturers side, if the system ever hits the warranty repairs.
But was has this to do with the original problem? It is completely offtopic and I already said that I created a Ticket.

: All machines have integrated graphics chips
Hello, that is not true, in my case my Core I7 2600k has no integrated graphics chip. What you are saying is most of the time true for notebooks but not for all desktop processors, especially older ones.
: The best way they can help you is by sending a ticket to their support, me playing on a laptop i found out that it was my old intel graphics card messing with my frames, althought i have my nvidia card updated. Send them a ticket to try and help them and you in trying to find what is wrong. Posting on the boards doesnt really help anyone sadly , feel free to copy and paste this exact post with all the details so they can even get a better idea of what might be causing these issues
Thank you for your quick reply and your advice for helping out. Since I play on a Desktop with only one card (GTX 1060, 6GB) I can be sure that is not the problem on my machine. Also thank you for your second advice, I created a support ticket and will keep this thread updated if Riot Games provides any information on this.
