Do you want to play a game of League of Legends on your Mac but can’t do it because the game won’t open? We will show you how to fix that!
League of Legends is one of the most played video games of all time and is available for both Mac and Windows.
Unfortunately, some Mac users have reported an error that makes the game crash upon launch, making it impossible to play.
How To Fix The Problem
There are many reasons why a game can’t or won’t start. Your Mac might be faulty, or the LoL app or servers might be to blame. There is no simple way of telling right away.
There are several things you can try:
First, check your internet connection. It might sound simple, but you might get frustrated at your Mac for no good reason.
If the game still doesn’t work, run it in RiotMacContainer. To do that, open Finder and look for League of Legends and then find and click the Show package contents option. Then, select macOS and then click on RiotMacContainer and then close the game.
If that still didn’t solve your problem, there is hope:
You can remove the game’s Lockfile by doing the following steps:
Go to Finder -> Applications -> League of Legends. Right-click the folder and locate the “lock file.” Remove the lock file and relaunch the game.
That should fix the problem and let you launch the game usually.
If neither of those methods succeeded in fixing your game, the problem is most likely on your system, which might require a diagnose/troubleshot procedure.
There is a chance that you might need to upgrade your computer / Mac if you are trying to run the game on dated hardware.
