Will Windows 10 and League of Legends be friends?

The answer is yes! We have been been extensively testing Windows 10 here at Riot, and we will be fully supporting Windows 10. If you haven’t heard already, you will be able to freely upgrade to Windows 10 as long as you have Windows 7 or 8.1 (8 users need to update to 8.1) already installed. If you do decide to upgrade, here is what you need to know:

  • Make sure to check whether your computer meets the requirements for Windows 10

  • If you do update, Windows 10 should download all the necessary updates or latest drivers for your hardware automatically. If you do have problems afterwards, you may need to contact your computer manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc) or your hardware manufacturer (MSI, Gigabyte, Nvidia, AMD, etc) to manually download the latest updates or drivers. Since it was just released, some manufacturers may not have updated drivers/updates ready

NOTE: Older hardware not directly supported by its own manufacturers anymore may not have new drivers for Windows 10.

  • Make sure to play a Custom Game first after updating to make sure everything works normally! You don’t want to be in a Ranked Game if suddenly your mouse stops working

  • If you encounter any problems with League of Legends immediately after upgrading to Windows 10, try completing a full and clean re-installation if it resolves the problem.

  • If all else fails, make sure to submit a ticket! This way we can easily track any compatibility issues that may occur with Windows 10. Make sure to include the following in your ticket as well:

    • Operating System: Windows 10

    • Graphics Card:

    • CPU:
