Sounds like you guys have a good idea of what's involved with this. I do have it pinned (bad I know) and it does fail, but only when I have Chrome open. If I quit Chrome, it launches with no issues. Weird.

Public Service Announcement:
Do NOT pin League of Legends to your dock. The game will fail to launch after any patch to the launcher.

Repeat After Me:
I will not pin LoL on the Dock
I will not pin it on my sock
I will not pin the old LoL Launcher
Of this I could not be any stauncher
I will not pin the LoL Client
Heaven forbid I pin the game-game
that would just be lame-lame
If I wish to be compliant
For if I do my LoL will break
Because my shortcut will be a fake


This bug also happens on Windows but we find that very few players run into it there. However, I've noticed Mac users tend to pin things to their dock more often. If you run into problems launching the game after patching make sure you are not running from the app pinned in the dock.

Unfortunately, fixing this bug requires deceptively large amount of work. However, it is on our backlog. I apologize for any inconvenience .

Cheers!

NOTE:
There is only one proper way to pin League of Legends to the dock. To do this open your applications folder. Drag the "League of Legends.app" bundle you see there onto your dock. Hovering over it after your done should read "League of Legends". An unfortunate side effect of this is that you will have two "L" icons(up to 5 if you have 10.6.8) in your dock when the game is running.


I unpinned the LoL from my dock and re-downloaded it and it still isn't working. The launcher starts and it says it is updating jumps to 33% and when i hit play it says it cannot connect to maestro, what am i doing wrong?

EDIT: SO.. interesting note. I am using a different wifi source and it launches just fine. Weird?

So I can enter champion select fine, but when the game gets to loading screen, it just flashes once and then quits itself without even beginning to load me into the game. I've tried reconnecting multiple times but it still does not work. Does the Mac have an issue with the full screen?
