Answer: Yes

Runs Perfectly for me?: No.

I have graphical issues after matches where It won't return to the game lobby so you can talk and honor each other.. the screen goes black.. but you can see the Windows Taskbar..
ALT TAB doesn't seem to help too much as the window is trying to "stay on top". ctrl-alt delete is jsut as hard to end the process as the window tries to stay on top.. and finally right clicking on the lol client on your taskbar and selecting "close" isn't always there.. really random...

so what i did was program a little application that ends the proccess "LolClient". I keep it pinned to my taskbar, so after matches i just hit it and it closes.. not sure when windows will fix these problems.. i tried updating my drivers, no luck..

anyway, if you want a copy of the file email me, joshua@suboxygen.net . I can provide the code as well, it was written in C#.NET. really simple end process call..

cheers!

Hey oReeFeR!

Thank you for bringing your concern and question to the Help and Support Forum!

We have recently been receiving a lot of questions regarding Windows 8. Rest assured, League of Legends will support Windows 8 and we are currently working on existing compatibility issues. Once any outstanding issues are resolved, our Knowledge Base articles will be updated accordingly and you should notice a significant decrease in Operating System related issues with Windows 8.

Keep in mind however, due to how new this Operating System is, many different Software Companies and Hardware Vendors may not have included new software/driver updates for their products just yet. Not having the latest software updates and drivers could therefore cause negative interactions when attempting to play League of Legends. As time moves on however, the vast majority of these will receive their proper updates for Windows 8.

If you download/install Windows 8, and you begin to experience issues with League of Legends, please do not hesitate to let us know by creating a new Support Ticket* so we may work with you to resolve these issues as quickly as possible in a one-on-one setting!

I hope this helps relieve any confusion!

* Keep in mind that this advice was given based upon the information provided. If you would appreciate a further one-on-one interaction to solve this issue, make sure to send us a Support Ticket! You can send one from here: https://support.leagueoflegends.com/tickets/new Also, if you could please provide a link to this forum thread in the new ticket, it would be incredibly helpful!

Hey there Killer5162!

We'll need a bit more information from you to help solve your problem...
Are you running Windows 8 or just posting in this thread.

Anyways, you can try running the League of Legends Launcher as administrator, reset your Internet Explorer settings or reinstall League of Legends.

Happy Holidays!

Yes, I recently got a new laptop with Windows 8 and it runs fine. Just make sure you run League as an administrator.
