League of Legends will shut down its Mac client Tuesday

Riot games have announced they have officially canceled support for League of Legends after 13 months of work with TransGaming and Mac beta-testing. The Mac beta client will be “indefinitely” shut down at 12 a.m. on September 6th, this Tuesday. LoL Mac users have some hope, while Riot hasn’t eliminated the possibility of a Mac version in the future; it will not be any time soon.

“We realize our current approach regarding the Mac platform won’t guarantee the quality and frequent updates we deliver today on the PC and are expected by our player community. We will continue to investigate the opportunity to provide player access on the Mac Platform in the future that aligns with our service and content update standards. We are committed to building a solution that will work on the Mac in the long run, but it will take some time.”

Mac beta testers who used the store can continue playing on the PC client, or receive a full refund on their purchases, which would close those accounts entirely. As consolation, Riot will give all Mac testers a code to unlock the Champions Pack, which can be redeemed only if a majority of your logins come from the Mac client and you enter the Store before service is shut down Tuesday.
