So I'm downloading and updating my mac client for LoL and its taking a ludicrous amount of time. Its downloading at 8kbs and says 111 hours download remaining even though I'm at 90% finished.

Its not my internet. I checked and my speed was rated at 4.74 megabits which is about 600 kilobytes per second. Why the hell is the game downloading at 8 kilobytes per second? Are the servers THAT taxed? I mean come on. Is anyone else having this issue?

I'm on a Mac so no, its not a firewall or antivirus.

Is this just an issue with the Mac client or something on their server side? Is there anything I can do about it? Thanks

Btw 2011 MacBook Pro OSX 10.7.5

It always took me about 10-15 hours to patch League of Legends.

Riot Games: Please stop patching champions and in-game contents but the Mac Client itself. It is very laggy and it really prevents people from playing League of Legends

We haven't recorded any slower download speeds on the Mac than on the PC. One thing to remember is that you don't have the Pando installer on Mac OSX. This means the first time you patch it has to download a megapatch that installs the entire game. This can take a considerable length of time.

The 8Kbps is inaccurate and something we're looking into fixing. Usually this happens right when you get near the end of the patch.

This happened to my MacBook Air in one of the updates,I don't take full credit for this solution, I don't remember where i got it, but its somewhere around the forums, I recommend opening and closing the client about 3 or more times (open>close x3 times or more) until it doesn't get stuck around 96% of the upload. When it's around -13:-8 or 3453234:45:82 (let's say) time estimated for upload to finish, just simply close the client and re-open it.You may have to do this several times, However, if this process doesn't work i am sorry for any inconvenience i've caused, I am just simply trying to help.

i think this is helping. download is significantly faster. I pray this works!
