Using 13" MBP 2009, Nvidia 9400m.

My FPS went from 30-40 to 15-25 if nothing is happening. It's going to below 15-10 in team fights. Practically unplayable.

Also getting many severe freezes. Everytime I die I freeze for about 2s. If someone else on my screen dies it's regularly a freeze of 1s, but not always. I also had a few freezes already with skill shots coming from invisible terrain.

Also my keybindings were partially reset, but I had a double keybinding on '4' now. (trinket + level up on R).

Even before this patch I've had freezing on kills/deaths. When I do notice this. I check to see if my system is paging out on memory and when it is doing this I reboot and problem goes away. I'm on a 15 MBP with Nvidia 8600gt. You can check page outs via activity monitor.

Macbook Pro 13 " using NVIDIA GeForce 320M
Been having the freeze on death problem since before 3.14 (maybe like two patches back). (A non mac user friend of mine also gets this problem on his Windows 7 sometimes)

Ever since after 3.14 I get a long freeze in game (not on death, but at any time), usually after 20 minutes in. Freeze tends to last a very long time, say 20 seconds to a whopping 3 minutes. FPS mostly the same as before but this game is still unplayable for any mode other than Co-op (easy enough to die in and still win).
The second time I played, I crashed on entering from the loading screen and having to jungle with no leash at level 1 at 3 minutes in totally set me behind that entire game. It's rather depressing and I hope these problems get attention.

I'm having the same problem (same computer as Boompje but in 15").

The freezes near/on death make it incredibly difficult (if not impossible) to do anything remotely clutch; I can't Flash, I can't use activated items, etc. I also have extended "loading" times after a match ends. I get a black screen for about 30-60 seconds before the post-game screen shows up.

The black screen is annoying, but I can deal with it. The death freezing, however, is game-breaking.

I hope this gets fixed ASAP because I'm really enjoying the preseason changes.

Yes, also have this problem.

Playing on MBRP 15" using Nvidia 650m

Problems are:

- Screen and game freezes near death regularly: Check
- FPS fluctuating and lag spikes near other players (enemies/allies) and during teamfights: Check
- Delay/black screens during loading start and after game vic/def screen: Check
- Weird/clunky/laggy mouse and keyboard abilities during clicking: Check

Riot Please!

We've seen some reports where Mac User's memory has been paging more than usual due to have several other applications open. Can you check Activity monitor for your memory allocation?

I can confirm this problem exists with no other application open, checked Safari, mail, etc. Only league is running yet this problem pertains.
Again, this is only happening since 1.14 patch, so it has to be something to do with patch..

it really is impressive how adamant they'll be about the "no.. no.. is just coincidence.." thing as far as new patches messing stuff up lol

I too have these issues on the 3.14 patch. I had these problems playing ARAM.

Had no problems on windows yesterday. But I am away from my gaming rig for this week as I'm on break and the main rig is at school.
