How to uninstall League of Legends for good


Players who want to finally get rid of League of Legends have only one legitimate way to uninstall the ultimate time sink.

League of Legends is a relatively smaller sized game, especially when compared to Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto. It doesn’t take a lot of space but uninstalling the popular MOBA can yield some extra storage on the hard drive or SSD. Players spend a significant amount of time on the addictive MOBA and many choose to spend real money for cosmetics.

Whether it’s the time requirement to master the game or bad financial decisions, uninstalling League of Legends can help with both.
