LoL season 8 launcher and game.
Beta client usage logs also accepted - please mark them as "BETA CLIENT" explicitly in the test results' description.
Have fun playing LoL!
Everything... Sometimes (see below). Once in game everything is fine.
As of current state of the game and wine, it seems almost impossible to play standard games (at least on my machine !).
What does not
Game crashes very often on both client startup and before game start. While this was an issue before, game was still playable by clicking the "reconnect" button and trying several times.
After a recent patch, the reconnect button no longer appears, it is hidden by the news due to a bug. So the only way to reconnect is to restart the client... which also randomly crashes most of the time. If you are lucky you can reconnect to a game after a few minutes but a lot of games are wasted.
The client itself is also highly unstable, sometimes causing entire graphical session to hang.
I needed to write 0 in /proc/sys/abi/vsyscall32, e.g. sudo nano /proc/sys/abi/vsyscall32 then change the value from 0 to 1.
This only allows entering a game but does NOT prevent crashes.
What was not tested
-using the store
-the new game mode
