Hello, I've created a work around for this patching problem for some of you. THis will nto fix everyones problem, but it fixed mine. This is to solve the issue where the downloader just stop dlownloading miway through, not for the people getting an error message.

Do not attempt this if you have no idea what you are doing.

First of all, we open our LoL folder and locate your launcher_config file.

**BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FILE OR YOU WILL NTO BE ABLE TO REPATCH ONCE THE PROBLEM IS FIXED**]

Open the file using Notepad or word.

Look for this section:

<Name>LOL.Patcher</Name>
<PackageName>LOL.Patcher</PackageName>
<Url>http://lolcdn.leagueoflegends.com/h2f4b5v4/cds/patcher/lol/</Url>
<RelativePath></RelativePath>

Once found, delete this line:

<Url>http://lolcdn.leagueoflegends.com/h2f4b5v4/cds/patcher/lol/</Url>

Make sure it's deleted cleanly so it looks like this:

<Name>LOL.Patcher</Name>
<PackageName>LOL.Patcher</PackageName>
<RelativePath></RelativePath>

Save the file and open LoL as normal, and it should run for you.

Thanks

Worked a charm for me.

Patcher is finally doing what its ment to do.
(Was previously just closing itself, wouldn't move past Updating [LOL.Air] 5/6, or something)
Cheers!

I understand that you all really just want to play, but it's not recommended that you edit your laucher_config.xml. What you have done by deleting this line is tell the patcher not to update. While this may work for the time being, in the future, there will be an essential update to the launcher, and you will be forced to reinstall the game.

With that said, enjoy the game.
