Summoners!

This past February we began soliciting applicants to help us begin testing on our new PvP.net patcher (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=115812). Since then, many players have stepped up to help test the new software in preparation for a broader release.

After this first round of testing, we’re ready for primetime. Very soon, the new PvP.net patcher will become the default patcher distributed to players just beginning their career as League of Legends Summoners.

Now, if you’re not ready to adopt the new PvP.net patcher just yet, don’t worry! Your old patcher will still work! If, on the other hand, you’re ready to join the revolution, here’s how you can upgrade your current patcher to the new one!
1. Before you get started, make sure to download a recent copy of the League of Legends installer, to use as a backup in case anything goes wrong. You can find this by going here (http://l3cdn.riotgames.com/Installer/EU_Installer/LeagueofLegends.exe).
2. Make sure your League of Legends installation is fully patched up, and you can login/start a game.
3. Download (http://l3cdn.riotgames.com/Patcher/lol.launcher.zip) the Migrator (lol.launcher.zip file)
4. Extract the lol.launcher.exe file and place it into your League of Legends installation directory.
5. Run League of Legends from the Start Menu or from the shortcut on your Desktop, which will begin the migration.

If you’re set on hanging on to your current patcher for the time being, bear in mind that within the next few weeks we will be transitioning everyone over to the new system. If you haven’t installed the new PvP.net patcher yourself by then, you’ll automatically be updated! So just sit back and enjoy the ride!

The new PvP.net patcher is almost here, summoners! Be ready!

Dear Riot Games,

Please do not include Pando Media Booster in every update of the installer. And if you do, please alert your players properly about what it is and why they should or should not install it.

To those unaware, Pando is a software installed alongside League of Legends which turns your machine in to a hub for others to patch. A peer-to-peer network in other words. That said, it runs in the background and is considered by many as malware.

tl;dr ITD BE SUPER AWEOSME IF U DIDNT FORCE US TO PANDO!

You might want to make a fix on the recent bug with the latest patch.
But mayby I'm the only one who want to be able to log in to League Of Legends.
