I get the same problem sorta. I played it perfectly fine for a month, but I got busy and hadnt played it and now when I try to play it it says server connection unavailable and then i get the assert pointer is null. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I've tried administrator mode, I've tried turning firewalls on and off etc. It's funny though, because my brother is playing it in the room beside me on the same internet connection.

Ok i too have had this problem, one time i'll be playing for 4-5 hours then take a break. Then i come back load it up and it gives me the "Assert pointer is null" didnt change anything on my comp...

Few ways i have gotten it to work is by logging off then relogging(not restart, "log off") back in and then moving the folders into another drive 'e' drive and it works and another time it gave me that error i actually deleted everything of riot games and installed it directly on the 'c' drive...

The client just has glitches and bugs, it just breaks down and stops recognizing you as admin when you are using admin so it doesnt load it up properly or something. Hope this helps and if anyone else has any other solutions feel free to add.

Me and my friend cant start the game, we wont even get to the loggin screen, it stops working at the patcher client 'thing', we are getting the same error over and over again after a few mins of unfunctionallity, while my brother who is able to play the game back home just continues without problems. Though BOTH me and my friend uses Windows 7, my brother does not.

I had the same problem, the funny thing is.. i fixed it by doing the following;

1. right clicking play league of legends shortcut.
2. going to its properties
3. you have 6 tabs up the top, choose shortcut.
4. then Advanced.. check Run as Administrator.
- This option allows you to run this shortcut as administrator, while protecting your computer from unauthorized activity.

i thought my LoL was already doing this.. but it only worked when i did it to the shortcut.. no further problems.

You could just change the access permissions of your current profile to allow running of programs
