In the past week or so I've noticed that when the game first starts, it will freeze for a few seconds right when everybody is at the shop picking up their initial items. Sometimes it freezes before I hit P to open the shop, sometimes it freezes right after I hit P (but before it draws the shop UI).

I don't have this problem if I boot to windows and play, and I never used to have this problem when the mac client first came out.

Its not gamebreaking, but it does mean I can't really make it to the bushes before a quick enemy.

Like I said, this happens regardless of opening the store or not. It also didn't happen when the Mac client first launched. It happens now roughly 80% of the time.

I'm far from the last to finish loading on the champion loading progress screen. I'd like to think the purpose of this screen is to have all players load in their data and then start the game at the same time, giving nobody an unfair advantage due to computer speed.

If the game is freezing for a few seconds upon first entering the game, this runs counter to this assumption.

My friend who just downloaded mac client to play with me has the same problem. He says its annoying, but not entirely gamebreaking. The invisible chars however are!

I have the same problem and it affects me when I jungle w/Shaco because I like to get 5 jib's down for the golem at the start and the freeze messes with the timing on that. Also, the client in general seems a bit stuttery (that's not a word) it runs completely smooth if I run bootcamp and run it but I get the occasional stutter here and there in every game.
