    I have a 2016 MBP now and it runs League very clunky, but my old Iris Pro MBP ran it smooth as butter. Was curious if it's just how High Sierra runs games or if it's just the 2016 model, or is there a chance I just have a bad card in some way?

    Some have reported poor gaming performances under High Sierra for recent laptops after waking from sleep. Try restarting and see if performance is improved.
    A bad card is unlikely, and should manifest in graphics corruption. Any performance issue should lie in software.

    Well I do have a list of other issues going lol

    Flashing black bars during full screen movies

    Red boxes in FCPX

    FCPX UI lagging behind when swiping

    Timeline isn’t loaded in FCPX

    Teal screen when shutting down sometimes

    Brown/multicolored boxes when shutting down

    Safari in full screen leads to black screen sometimes

    Some scrollable sites glitchy (Facebook)

    Youtube/twitch feeds flash/glitchy behavior

    Seems to drop frames after screencapping lots of 1080p 30fps footage

    At this stage I'd reinstall the OS and/or take the machine to an Apple Store.

    Yeah I've reinstalled the OS about 10x trying different things, I guess it may be time for a G-Bar visit.
