League of Legends, hands down the most popular MOBA ever created, is also having issues with macOS Catalina.

According to Riot Games, the game’s developer, macOS Catalina is possibly preventing new players to install the game. If you already have League of Legends for Mac installed on your machine, you should be fine.

Catalina is the latest version of Apple’s operating system for Mac. Released on October 7, it was supposed to be a great addition for Mac gamers, namely thanks to the introduction of Apple Arcade. Instead, Catalina ended up being a nightmare, especially for users dependent on 32-bit apps.

Another Catalina victim

League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena video game. League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena where teams of players compete for dominance, selecting from a growing cast of over 90 uniquely powerful champions.

The list of games suffering from Catalina’s mandatory transition to 64-bit continues to grow. In most cases, the root cause is straightforward: A game is still 32-bit and hence will stop working on Catalina.

However, in the case of League of Legends for Mac (LoL), the problem is vague and unclear:

At this time and with what we know, people will not be able to install League of Legends on their Mac devices on Catalina. So in the meantime, if you know someone who is interested in installing League of Legends, they should do so before Catalina debuts in October OR not update their macOS to Catalina until they do.

Strangely though, if you already have the game installed, you should be fine:

Existing players with League of Legends on their Macs will not have any problems or changes with League of Legends when Catalina rolls out. The game will patch normally and players will be able to play as they have been!

Regarding a potential solution, Riot Games is still investigating the issue:

We do not currently have an estimated timeline for when Catalina will be able to support League of Legends, but we will update players as we get a clearer look at its release date.

In conclusion, if you’re an avid League of Legends gamer on Mac, you better stay away from Catalina for the time being.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Mac League of Legends users have suffered from a lack of support from Riot Games. For example, Mac users have been suffering from a mic bug that prevented players from using the League voice chat. And that’s only one example.

League of Legends Mac requirements

In any case, if you want to give LoL a shot, make sure your machine meets the game’s official minimum requirements:

League of legends for mac air
  • 3 GHz processor (supporting SSE2 instruction set or higher)
  • 2 GB RAM (4 GB is strongly recommended)
  • 5 GB available hard disk space
  • NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT / ATI Radeon HD 2600 or better
  • Screen resolutions up to 1920×1200

Like most MOBAs, LoL isn’t particularly demanding and should run on most modern Macs.

Best alternatives

Finally, if you’d rather try a MOBA with slightly better macOS support, both Dota 2 and Heroes of the Storm are excellent choices.

If you’re looking for the same type of experience LoL provides, Dota 2 would be a better choice. It’s also famous for its competitive scene, complexity, and harsh community.

On the other hand, Heroes of the Storm may not have a strong competitive presence, but it remains the best MOBA for casual gamers.

What you need to know

  • League of Legends may not work with macOS Catalina on release.
  • Riot is unsure of compatibility due to broad release date.
  • The issue will not affect users who have the game already installed, only new downloads.

Riot games has announced that users may not be able to install League of Legends on macOS Catalina upon its release. Riot has said that due to the 'broad release date' of Catalina they are unsure as to whether the game will be supported. In a post yesterday it said:

Due to the broad release date, we don't know if Catalina will support League of Legends and TFT on Mac devices. If you know a Mac user who might be interested in League of Legends or TFT, get them to install it as soon as possible to be safe!

Existing players with League of Legends on their Macs will not have any problems or changes with League of Legends when Catalina rolls out. The game will patch normally and players will be able to play as they have been!

At this time and with what we know, people will not be able to install League of Legends on their Mac devices on Catalina. So in the meantime, if you know someone who is interested in installing League of Legends, they should do so before Catalina debuts in October OR not update their macOS to Catalina until they do.

We do not currently have an estimated timeline for when Catalina will be able to support League of Legends, but we will update players as we get a clearer look at its release date.

It's important to note that this could affect both League of Legends and spinoff Teamfight Tactics, which requires the LoL client in order to play. To recap, the issue will not affect any players who already have the game installed. So, if you are a LoL player with the game installed, there's nothing to worry about. If you're about to jump into the game for the first time on Mac, Riot strongly recommends that you should download the game before you install macOS Catalina (whenever that is released).

As noted by Riot, it is unclear at this stage whether this is going to be an issue when Catalina is released. It is also unclear at this stage how long the problem might persist if indeed it does take effect. Most recent reports suggest Catalina could be released Friday, October 4, however Apple is yet to confirm a release date.
