Hello everyone,
I tried to repair League Of Legends from options and i saw this "Allow Peer to Peer Transfer".
If anyone knows please tell me what this means and should I disable it, because its enabled.

When the launcher starts patching if you have the option enabled it will download it from other people who are "seeding" it, if it's off then it will download it from the league of legends servers.
Try it out, on my computer its faster ON some computers its better as OFF

Peer to Peer transfer is one of the biggest wonder that have ever happened to the internet. As I have studied about Routing, Switching and WAN I know that Peer to Peer first came from pirate torrents. However this system is pretty awesome as it saves a lot of server stress for 1 set of servers to distribute all data to every data request.

It only distribute to a few and then they help distribute to the rest, saving the first server the trouble to have to do the same work for everyone. So this make downloading and distributing data go much faster.

Ok for me. When I have ON download jumps like crazy, because of downloading from different ppl. When OFF is set, my download is 4,5 MBs.
