Hey guys, hoping someone could help me out with a quick question.

I was curious as to how much a game of LoL would be using (say a 45 minute game) bandwidth wise. Whether it uses a lot of upload/download as we're having difficulties pointing out who in our house is chewing up all our bandwidth

Would just like to eliminate LoL as a suspect

Unless you have extremely limited bandwidth, I don't imagine that League is really eating up too much. There are a bunch of free network monitoring tools you can grab, just google search bandwidth monitor.

I used that program and while nothing else was open (No MSN/Ventrilo etc, just LoL) throughout the game it ranged from 40-130kb/sec. To me that doesn't sound right, but if that is right wouldn't that be a little drastic for a game like this? :S

80kb/sec average X 45 minutes = About 250mb worth of data being sent...

Don't suppose anyone else could check their readings as well?

We share an internet connection and 750mb for 3 of us for one game, on any internet cap (in australia) is a bit much.
