For those of you Mac users (like me) suffering from the black screen after champion select, I have found a fix (sort of)! The fix is to turn on a VPN service provider when playing League of Legends (ex: Astrill).

HOWEVER, the problem now is that I am constantly getting 400+ ping and have to reconnect 3 or 4 times every match. In simple words, it's pretty much unplayable. I'm not really good with tech stuff, but I am going to conclude that the problem is not within Riot, but within us (our internet to be more specific).

As a tech koala, and I don't know what my VPN is doing that allows me to bypass the Black Screen of DEATH. Any tech genius or Riot support staff knows what's up?

Just press enter after the black screen comes. I know this sounds weird and I don't know why but it'll solve this latest issue!

Hey i got the fix!! All you have to do is press [enter]. Its that simple. Go through champion select, wait for the black screen to pop up, wait a couple seconds, then press [enter]. And the loading screen pops up and you are in game! (I recommend trying this on a custom game first to prevent AFK, and bans to follow, just incase it doesn't happen to be the fix for you)
