I was sad that i havent got an invitation for beta testing.. but a few days later parallels 6 was released! i can play lol on mid settings, shadows low on win 7 vm with parallels 6 no problem. with parallels 5 there were lags every few secs, but now is ok! im on a macbook pro 13" 2010. try it yourself until mac client comes out!

Ah sweet, I've previously been able to play in P5 with respectable frame rates, I'm interested to see how I'll go with P6!

6 is already out? Wow! Anyway, it shouldn't be TOO long for a Mac client so if people haven't already installed Parallels and Windows, they shouldn't rush to do so.

What are parallels? All I know is that I have VMware Fusion 3.1.1

parallels is a app similar to vmware, but much better performance wise. especially the newest version, 6, it has much improved graphics acceleration. lol is fully playable on a 13" 2010 with parallels 6 on mid settings.

I get a weird model when I set my character details to high on Parallels 6 xD

This is very pleasing to me. I have 2 hours of boring wait time every day with only access to my Mac and WiFi. I will finally be willing to install Windows & Parallels on my machine if this is true. Can I assume that Parallels 6 has a free trial?

Do not use VMWare/Parallels.

I used it for about 3 months, before installing Windows XP on a Bootcamp partition, and it gave me the longest match load times EVER, and was rife with audio bugs.

I cannot recommend doing what you are suggesting. Booting from a bootcamp volume is so much nicer.
