I have posted this in both the bug report forum and the help&support.

There is no excuse for this to happen. It's happening to a lot of people, and the cause seems to be, obviously, the patch.

First, it would crash at random patching intervals and open infinitely spawning internet explorer windows. Someone found a way around it by switching code around to fix ANOTHER RIOT PATCHER ISSUE and then it wont let you join any games. This happens.

I'm considering HoN as I hear they have their own standalone client.

Its been almost 6 hours since I first tried to play a game of LoL and got the firewall error. I was able to play just fine yesterday, then I downloaded the patch earlier today and now I cant play at all. I would have thought 6 hours would be enough time for Riot to give us some information on the situation, but apparently not.

And, yes, I do have the right ports open and I tried disabling my firewall. This did not fix a thing.

Look all you need to do is shut off your firewall, Your firewall does NOTHING to help your computer or stop anything, its a useless tool. Shut it off! And the crashing is most likely because of your firewall...What kind of noob has there firewall on...P.S: HoN sucks!
