As you know, we're constantly working on ways to improve our patching process for players. We'd like to take this opportunity to have you test some of the recent optimizations we've been working on.
If all goes well, you should be able to patch and play the game without any issues. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, be sure to post in this thread; I'll be watching it like a hawk!
How you can help:
1) Download and extract this set of files.
2) Run lol.launcher.exe to start patching up.
3) If everything goes smoothly, you should be able to patch up and get into a game like normal.
4) If something goes wrong, let me know!
These files will connect you to the PBE, not to NA!
