Riots competitive MOBA “League of Legends” has become one of the most played video games in the world and all without being compatible with operating systems other than Windows. But that’s not for a lack of trying. In March Riot has finally made LoL available to play on Mac via an open beta.
Back in January Riot announced that they were working on a Mac client for “League of Legends”. However this wasn't the first such an announcement had been made. Previous promises to get a Mac client up and running were followed up with push backs and months of waiting. To work out all the bugs the Mac client was made available in the PBE, and has already been released in open beta for Mac users.
Mac users have been extremely patient with their exclusion from the Fields of Justice. And although Riot has finally made things right they aren’t without understanding for the inconvenience they caused all Mac gamers. Showing self-awareness for the rather inexcusable time frame for the new clients launch Riot’s Udyr said, “Thanks to the Mac community for your extraordinary patience – and a very special thanks to a particularly astounding group of folks who helped many of you play League via an unofficial client over the past months.”
In promotional material for the release they've even made light of the new clients delay stating, “League of Legends now on Mac . . . Finally.” If the personal apologies aren't enough for Mac enthusiasts than maybe the release video is. A tour of Dr. Mundo’s corporate headquarters is a shiny treat for LoL fans regardless of what platform they play on.
