My friend who had the same problem could not find any solution other than BootCamp on his Mac. However, the problem with iLol has now been changed to say that it should be fixed soon.

Guys guys guys, you are talking about the wrong issue here, the correct one is... why do you own a mac? :p
I see no reason why the creators of LoL wouldnt make a mac client when they obviously have the resources to do so... thats a good 13% of the computer user's markert that they havent tapped

If they made a Mac client, I'd totally buy RP (I caved and bought one for college)

Boot Camp seems to be the only way, but it's not so bad -- you can pick up a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit license for $100.

you know what i meant, i mean, you can get a hacked version for free on the interwebs, but to get a legit version you have to pay 100$ and almost every game worth playing (LoL being one of the exceptions) is playable on mac

Oh right. LoL was working on an OS X client but they stopped for some reason. I know a lot of games worth playing through that aren't available on OS X.

The engine they work on doesn't cross over so well, and so the client they had made to work on Mac's was constantly glitching & required too much maintenance to upkeep.

Ah yeah, I see. Well they should use a better engine then... :eek:, it'd be cool if Mac users could play it.

    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
