Quick Play

  • We’re testing out Quick Play as a replacement for Blind Pick in select regions (for now)
  • Quick Play lets you choose role and champion combinations when you queue. You’ll skip Champ Select and get straight into the game

League of Legends Support

  • Starting April 4th, League will no longer be supported by 32-bit operating systems, which will affect less than 0.01% of players globally. If this does impact you, you’ll get a message in the client starting patch 13.6
  • Moving League over to 64-bit OS lets us improve features such as our security and anti-cheat and bot detection
