Summoners!

As you know, we're constantly working on ways to improve our patching process for players. We'd like to take this opportunity to have you test some of the recent optimizations we've been working on.

If all goes well, you should be able to patch and play the game without any issues. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, be sure to post in this thread; I'll be watching it like a hawk!

How you can help:
1) Download and extract this set of files.
2) Run lol.launcher.exe to start patching up.
3) If everything goes smoothly, you should be able to patch up and get into a game like normal.
4) If something goes wrong, let me know!

These files will connect you to the PBE, not to NA!

Thanks!

doin it


....my chat features and friend list button on the bottom of the launcher on the right hand side are missing...

Extracted the core files from the .rar into my pbe client (the lol.exe etc etc) launched the game after copying those files over, gave me a 2 minute long patch, logged into the game.....no friends list or public chat buttons >_>...

Nothing happened. Did I do something wrong?

Can you be more specific?

I was under the impression that the game would start patching after I ran the file. But after clicking "Run" nothing happens.

EDIT: Woops, I didn't extract the files. Sorry.

Downloaded and patching. There was a fairly bulky start-up time (I had the League of Legends logo on my screen for about 60 seconds before the launcher opened and the patch began) but I'm not sure if that's a result of a first-load scenario or if it's legitimately slow. My computer is rather fast, you see. But it's also rather unreliable as well, you understand.

Patch timer is marking me at about an hour with ~100kbps, so it'll be a looooong time before I can give any other input >_>;

I solved it myself. I'm a dummy that didn't extract the files first. It's patching
