Hello everyone! We are back online after a long absence.
So what happened? Well, first up the previous site got hacked. Ok, that was my bad. Turns out ignoring constant nags to update the site with security updates for several years is really not a good idea. Who woulda thunk? Yeah that was lazy. At the time when I found out that the site was offline I was just ending the final stretch of my Master’s degree and simply didn’t have the time to invest in fixing the site.
Then Riot went ahead and removed all the item data from the database that comes with the game, so now I had to figure out a new way to get item data or else the recommended item editor would be completely useless. That meant more time invested.
Now I’ve finished my Master’s so I have a little time to invest back into this project. A fix for getting the item data is also complete, so LoLTool should be working with all the previous functionality. It should be up on the site shortly.
As to future updates… I will try to keep everything working when Riot breaks things, and I may add some more functionality at some point but the amount of time I can invest in this is rather limited, especially given that it costs me far more to host the site than it makes in advertising revenue, let alone being in way profitable. So I’ll only be working on it in my spare time and when I feel like it.
