I have recently set a lot of windows 8 computers up and I always had lol client with me to see how it communicates with windows' metro interface. Windows 8 have a lot of screen-edged mouse "gestures" I'd say that seem to be caught by metro even if the client is running full screen. For example, moving the mouse on the left bottom corner of the screen, and use mouse click (right or left) metro's start menu pops up. The area that affects this is actually where "old" start menu button used to be and got replaced by the metro start spot(?)

I think we should wait for the first official and full win 8 release, then we could start bughunting since a lot of problems are microsoft's instabilities.

Well, I think that we really shoud just stay with our seatbelts on, Windows 8 is not yet released, its beta in my opinion. I think there are other things we shoud fear of, like bugs on this LoL Skin Selector that I tried 1 time and totaly screwed some 5 skins and sometimes loading screens stops -.-.

P.S.: I heard the gaming on Windows 8 is not very bad for a beta, but some ppl do encounter problems, so even if its very soon to say something about Windows 8 bugs Anodoin please leave this thread open

Thanks a lot for the time you selected to read this, EvilDozer

I experienced 1 and 4 on win7 too, but very rarely. thrice at max each, over 2 years, so didn't report..

Hi guys, i also experienced "1. On game start, champion starts going at the top lane without me having the ability to stop it.. To fix it i must alt+tab then go back at lol and then everything is ok.", but also i had a very fatal bug.
I do not have champion select screen. No, really, just black screen, and i have it only on my notebook with windows 8. Just trying to enter any match - black screen. It can be cured only by re-install, and it works for one day ( i tried many things, trust me). It seems like some bug in frameworks, but I'm not sure... Can you fix it? It's really hard to reinstall LoL every day...

P.S. My dxdiag is 67KB, so I can't attach it, but if you link to authorised file sharer, i'll upload to it.
P.P.S. Still works fine on Windows 7 on another computer...

The thing I experienced since getting Windows 8 is I never get the end game screen to show up after a finished match. I can't alt-tab it, and when I launch LoL again it says another instance is runing.
Other then that its fine really.

Haven't tried on any other operating system though
