I just downloaded the game the other day because my friends got to play LoL, but today I came home to a patching error and have no idea how to fix :c

It stays at 33% then says "Failed to download or extract all update files"

I'll give you a bad new, i already tried everything, even when i thought i had fixed the problem, it came again. Just start downloading your game again. :/

I have this issue as well. Is there any fix other than downloading ALL of league again?

Fixed now!

Apparently my dad had a back-up firewall connected to our internet all-together, I just had him turn that off while I patched and it worked.

Hey there!

Sorry to hear you guys are having problems with this. Luckily, this is usually just a failed self-patcher issue that is fixed up rather easily.

The first and most common solution is to force the patcher to repatch itself. You can do this by deleting this folder:
C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_launcher

Many players also fixed this problem by disabling the UAC(Windows Vista and Win7 Only)

If that doesn't work, try doing the following:

Manually Updating/Installing the .Net Framework 3.5

Making sure you are running the game as an administrator.
a) Right-Click on the short-cut
b) Select the properties tab
c) Check the box labeled "Run as administrator"

Failing all of that, i would suggest sending in a support ticket to our Technical Team Here and they will be able to help you better in a one-on-one basis

None of these solutions worked, but I got it working by uninstalling league and reinstalling it from scratch.
It's a shame these issues happen, but that's life. Thanks for trying typhon
