Spring Cleaning Coming Up
Riot Games has announced that it is going to carry out a “spring cleaning” in the League of Legends store. Developers will remove unpopular items to make browsing the store faster and easier for beginners to understand. They also want to make room for future innovations.
According to the leading gameplay developer Riot Games Mark Scruffy Jetter, first of all, they will remove items that made individual champions too strong. The unpopular items like Ohmwrecker will also be removed from the store.
Just made a post about some item shop cleanup and future item work:https://t.co/cud1EIJoVO
TLDR – We want to git rid of or rework "dead" items to make room for cooler additions in the future.

According to Yetter, over time, the League of Legends store will change dramatically.
