League of Legends Officially Returns to Mac

January 23rd, 2013 Leave a comment


On September 6th 2011, after 13 months of development, Riot shut down the Mac Beta client for League of Legends, indefinitely. Unable to cope with the frequency of updates to League of Legends, the Mac team felt they wouldn’t be able to keep up in terms of quality, but Riot promised an eventual solution. On the 9th of February 2012, a team led by senior wrenchman Boompje released their iLoL client. The beta client allowed play on Macs, and although there were issues, they kept the Mac community alive. Since release, the client has been downloaded over 1 million times and launched over 16 million times.

However, Boompje and Riot Games associate producer Steve “Udyr” Mieczkowski made a huge announcement today. League of Legends is making its official cross-platform return!

“In October of 2012, Riot extended a very courteous invitation to 10 of our team members to visit the Season 2 Championships and furthermore, visit Riot’s HQ in Santa Monica, CA to test the partially completed Mac Client.”  – Boompje

The official client is now in beta and available for PBE testing.

    Hey there, my name is Maurice and I’m a fellow blogger out of Arquata Del Tronto, Italia. I like what you guys are up to. Coming upon newsoflegends.com was refreshing and helpful in terms of writing and work. Keep up the good work guys: I’ve put you guys on my blogroll. I think it will improve the value of my own blog.
