League of Asia: Expect extended downtime due to site upgrades. Thank you for your patience.
It's been a while since we've had downtime, yes? With a new League client comes new challenges, but also new opportunities. We are using this time offline to research and rework things behind the scenes. We'll have more news before too long.
First, please accept our apologies for the extended downtime. Recent changes to the TW servers required more research than expected. Please continue to report issues of data errors and downtime.
Many of you have been asking about rank data missing from League of Asia. We are still determining if there is a way to access this information. A little while ago, Garena stopped supplying rank data in ways we can access it. League of Asia is still set up to display this data if Garena ever decides to open it to the world, or if we can rediscover where the data lives. Until then, there is nothing to show.
Also, thank you to those of you that have continued to donate during this time of uncertainty. It's incredibly humbling to see the community supporting this project, even as we all anticipate the upcoming big changes to League of Legends in our regions. So long as League of Asia remains possible, we will continue to keep it running.
Today we made the decision to remove support for the Philippines (PH), Thailand (TH), and Vietnam (VN) regions from League of Asia. We made this decision after thorough review of each region's runtime and financial performance. We simply could no longer afford to run servers in these regions and keeping them running was degrading performance site-wide. We'd like to thank the users in the affected regions for their support. Please accept our apologies, and know that we hope to revisit this decision if we find a way to solve these issues in the future.
Today's update brings a lot of behind-the-scene changes. League of Asia should now load much faster for everyone. It also reduces our server load substantially, which is important so that this site might be able to stay online past the new year. As always, thank you for your bug reports, suggestions and support. If you notice anything wrong, please let us know immediately.
We love your recommendations and we are listening! League of Asia has just been updated to include several features requested by our users through email and twitter.
Here are just a few of the changes we’ve made in this latest update:
We just released the League of Asia app for Android smartphones and tablets! The app is free and available in all languages over at Google Play:
