I also have the same problems stated in the OP.
Although, the long loading screen seems to be more recent. I used to have no problem loading very fast, but as of the last few months, I load extraordinarily slow compared to others in game.
I have noticed looking at my activity monitor that the long loading may have something to do with the userkernal going unresponsive for periods of time.

I have a couple updates to the 4 problems we talked about, but I have no idea if they plan to get outta beta at any time.

3. Right Before Death, Screen Freezes:
This issue was improved a tiny bit in the 4.4 patch. I went from freezing 100% of the time on my first death to freezing about 80% of the time, which still sucks but they are working on it, and their communication about the issue has gotten a lot better. I notice that if I play a custom game with just 1 enemy bot, I probably won't freeze, but in a normal game I still usually freeze. The main thread for this issue now is here:

4. After Game Lag/Bug Splat:
According to a post from Riot in this thread:
http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com...45112#46045112
This issue has also been happening to some people on the Windows client. And they also expect to have it fixed when patch 4.5 comes out.

I'm having all of the same issues:

1. Extremely slow load (always last)
2. Extremely low fps for first few seconds of the game (<5 for ~20 seconds)
3. Occasional lag during/after first death (.5 seconds, both my death and other's)
4. Infrequent lag after death (just mine, every death, still .5 seconds)
5. Big lag spike during end game shopping (eg buying pots, ~1-2 sec.)
6. Occasional bug splat at end of games (around 30% of time)

Usually, my game can run at a stable 120fps on medium settings, and changing settings to low do not appear to solve any of the issues. I recently repaired the client and repaired permissions, and problems still persist.

My specs:

OS 10.9.2
2.3 GHz Intel i7
8GB DDR3 1333 MHz
AMD Radeon HD 6750M
Automatic Graphics Switching: Off

Yeah, I now have freezes when other people die near me, its most noticeable on ARAM, but like you said its not 100% consistent. Also similar things happens when I place a ward in a bush for the first time. The scary part for me is that your computer specs are sooooo much better than mine. All of these problems are still happening on new Macs, so even my thoughts about getting a new computer would not help me. I just don't know if they can ever fix these problems when people on new Macs are starting to have them. I just might go to the dark side and use bootcamp at this rate.

Hi guys,
I was playing LOL yesterday (Mac Client) and after i queued up for a match the game crashed just before the 5v5 splash art screen,
So then I tried reconnecting back in and then it just went Black, couldn't tab out, it wouldn't load anymore.
I tried shutting my Mac down then re-loging back into the game, champion select went fine then when the game was supposed to start the same thing happened no splash art 5v5 screen just total blackness from the abyss.
I even tried uninstalling it reinstalling it but guess what?! the same problem... is there a way to fix this or am i doomed ?

Same thing happening to me, Riot support said it had something to do with my router, but It can't be , because I am not the only one with this problem. You may be doomed. let me know if you get it fixed.

I feel your pain. I was in a 5v5 game then my screen froze. I log back in to reconnect, nothing but a black screen. After waiting about an hour, I log back in, team select went smooth but when the loading screen came up, nothing but a black screen. I tried multiple times and same thing still happened, I tried everything on league of legends support like uninstall, reinstall, forcing re-patch, changing display/resolution, turning off firewall, etc.. Still no results so I'm waiting for them to email me back with a solution.
