How long have you been working on the port? Was there anything with regards to how the game worked that was optimized for PC and therefore hard to translate over? How hard was the task compared to other projects you're been working on?

I realize this isn't an AMA but I have questions. Good work on it all

I am happy to see Riot came through and made a Mac client like they said they would. Now to install it and compare it the the iLoL client.

We've been working on this for over a year and a half.

There were many design decisions made in the code that were very Windows specific. Some of them we rewrote to a more platform agnostic version. Some of them we tried to translate over. For example, the way we handle the mouse input on OSX is somewhat complex because we didn't want to change the way the game dealt with mouse input.

Some parts of this task were very easy. Many of them were some of the hardest things I've done at Riot.

Hello, my name is Viz. I worked on the League of Legends Mac Client. Ask me anything.

Newton support.

I'm so excited for this! Thank you so much! Now if only PBE signups would finally open. :c

Will there also be retina display support in this client?
