Riot was a small company (and it still is), back in the early days we do not have the resource to implement a lot of small features like this, we are forced to deal with what we have in terms of engineering resources, what the game design and business requirements are at the moment and prioritize on features and bug fixes that are most important based on set of metrics. So whenever this feature come up and match against other more critical feature/bug fixes, this feature always get de-prioritized. This happened to the First Win of the Day Timer for a long time until we finally addressed the issue:
As Riot Games grows in size, we will have extra engineering resource to deal with kind of issue in the future. One thing I can tell you is that, Riot Engineers are working very hard every day to make this game a better game for you.
