Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

Here’s a short demo showing that League of Legends works great in Windows 8.1. It demonstrates the technique that a lot of online games have and that is to update their software each time you run the game.

And of course, they would update it to run under each new version of a supported OS. So, if you are a League of Legends person, don’t be afraid to run under Windows 8.

    My pc specs are

  11. I have an Asus Republic of Gamers geforce gtx 660m. I have 40 fps and 40 ping throughout my game. I only play on a wired connection at my home by myself with no one else on the internet. I have an Asus republic of gamers laptop that is only a few months old. I have tried low graphic settings. I don't understand how I'm lagging/freezing during laning phase or team fights with PERFECT connection and PERFECT ping. I'm a NA player. It's really annoying, I'm not enjoying my gaming experience, and strongly considering uninstalling. This is my last attempt at any hope of fixing this issue. I mainly freeze when alot of abilities are used at once in a team fight. Let me be more specific, I am able to MOVE and minions are moving, and all champions are moving, but no damage is being dealt or taken.. THEN, after like 5 seconds the screen fast forwards and you can see any actions we have done in a huge burst. It's like the game catches up to what has been going on 5 seconds ago….

    Do you know of a fix or the problem with this issue? Everything stays up to date with every boot on my gaming laptop.

  12. Can you help me ? I recently got a brand new laptop with windows 8.1 for a month but every time I try to download league the timer goes to 220 hours . What's happening T_T
