This issue seems to pop up a lot lately. You can click the 'Play' button, but then LoL shuts down and nothing happens thereafter.

First, you must backup two files. These two files are your account settings (Chat configurations and Masteries Pages) and your game.cfg (contains your graphics/audio settings).

Go to:

  • League of Legends\Transgaming\c_drive\RADS\solutions\lol_gam e_client_sln\releases\0.0.0.XX\deploy\DATA\CFG\
    Copy your Game.cfg to a save location (for example to a folder on your desktop). Make sure it copies the file and does NOT create an alias.
  • League of Legends\Transgaming\c_drive\RADS\projects\lol_air_ client\releases\0.0.0.XX\deploy\
    Copy your 'Preferences' folder to a save location (for example to a folder on your desktop). Make sure it copies the folder and does NOT create an alias.

Now you've back-upped those files, do the next step:

Delete:
  • Everything inside League of Legends\Transgaming\c_drive\RADS\downloads
  • lol_air_client and all of your lol_air_client_config_XX folders inside League of Legends\Transgaming\c_drive\RADS\projects
  • Everything inside League of Legends\Transgaming\c_drive\RADS\solutions

Now Relaunch your League of Legends application.

It should go patching, which might take a while.

When the patching is done:
  • Close League of Legends again
  • Place your file and folder back into their old position.
  • Launch LoL again, it should now work.

PS: Ediwir was the guy who tested it and noticed that it works.

*edit: i meant something like "this issue is not mac-related and may be caused by different reasons, this solution is not guaranteed to work on every case", but... hey, thanks :P

This happens to me *SOMETIMES* after I've played a few league of legends games, but because we all know that the mac client is slightly buggy, sometimes the game doesn't launch or it unexpectedly crashes or whatever and then this problem arises. I've found that restarting your computer fixes it, just thought I'd try help.
