I wish I had time to make one asking all my technical questions, but I'm at work.

Maybe later tonight I'll make a new thread for you. Thanks for the answers you've already given though!

The training process for mac users requires plenty of patience. Proceed with caution and enjoy

I'll be up on the forums until late, so if you post it, I'll likely see it.

I used to play on the iLoL client (Boompjie has been amazing!) but I installed bootcamp after there was an error in one of the patches that prevented us from playing for like a month.

I guess my questions are, if we enjoy bootcamp, while it be as smooth on the new client? Will there be similar issues that cause the Mac Client to become unplayable again / no longer supported?

When I played on the iLoL client, I noticed a good amount of skipping and less traction when moving around. Bootcamp was much, much more smooth. But if this client should be as smooth as playing on bootcamp is, I'd LOVE to switch over. It's no fun having to relog all the time to play League :C !

This Mac is now an officially supported Riot platform. It will not be yanked. We hope it's as smooth an experience under Mac as it is under Windows. If it's not, let us know, and we'll do our best to fix it.

Consistently? Or just your first time loading?

Awesome =) I'm excited to try it out. I'll be downloading the PBE client for my mac tonight, so I'll post a full review later.

Is their an ETA for when the client will be official for the main servers? Or is it just dependent on if any major bugs are found.
