Windows 10 players will still be able to play with Windows 11 players, unless they want to tier it all up, which would be dumb, so this does nothing for the cheating.

Riot is 100% owned by Tencent. Tencent is controlled by the CCP.
Riot is still allowed to operate as they please. When character designs/other game elements need to be changed to satisfy Chinese laws, they make those changes for China only. League is filled with skulls and ghosts and a lot of other things that aren't allowed in China.
Do you really want a company controlled by the CCP to have kernal-level access to your PC?
They can get your info much easier than via a kernel anti-cheat. All of the whining about this is big main character syndrome. Why do you think the CCP gives a shit about your pizza hut orders and electric bill payments?

They don't care about that, but lets use TikTok as an example. TikTok isn't allowed on any phones that go into places like the Pentagon. Because the company that owns TikTok is controlled by the CCP and installing TikTok on devices with mics, cameras, and GPS instantly becomes a spying device. All TikTok has to do is remotely turn on cameras and mics and they'd have a spy inside the Pentagon. Same thing applies to any PC game that is touched by Tencent. They might not care about your pizza hut orders, but they care about using your hardware.

again you're making claims about spyware, this time about hardware turning themselves on. where is your evidence that this has ever happened?

Why are you defending the CCP so much? Do you work for Riot or something?

I have friends who work in cyber security, in Washington DC, and they've explained that's specifically why TikTok is banned from government facilities.
