YMMV, but the TP-Link routers I've used that haven't gotten updates, have always been supported by OpenWRT. Though I agree it's bad when the original manufacturers don't provide acceptable support.
OpenWRT is horrible on Broadcom devices, there are functions not made possible with the openwrt that are possible with the broadcom libraries.
I know it looks cool, and they spit out a bunch of fancy specs........but you would be better off investing in some real wifi instead of an all in one wifi/router combo. The cheaper one is 350 dollars, and that will get you a 3-pack of nice ubiquiti or engenius AP's. All home consumer wifi sucks badly.....and the right gear (and a proper site survey and radio tuning) will beat anything that says "ROG" or "Blackhawk" or "Extreme to the max"........no matter how many antennas it has.
Whoever plays competitive games over Wi-Fi deserve a ban anyway
