Earlier today, I uninstalled League of Legends because I was having some problems getting the new patch to work. I downloaded the installer and proceeded to start the installation, but the download during the install is painfully slow. I'm in my college dorm where my internet is usually very fast, but the download peaks at about 15 kb/s and usually stays under 1 kb/s. Usually, I can stream HD videos with little, if any, problems.

I'm having no other problems with my internet connection, and I can do anything else as I normally would. Other people on campus have had problems with a slow install (I've heard people say that it took them a week to finish it), but I have doubts that it's the connection's fault since everything else runs flawlessly.

I tried downloading the link from this thread (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=1474419), and I was able to launch the game and get into PvP.net. However, when I got on, the home page was black. I could click the play button and choose my game type, but when I tried to start a custom game the screen went black again. I tried restarting it a couple of times and had the same results.

If anybody can help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it. I was planning on playing some today, but now I'm not sure if I will be able to play this week
