Sites to Whitelist

Whitelisting these sites on your club site's network will allow the game to function properly.


Is your game still lagging?

If your game is still lagging, download Riot's MinConfig Settings file here.

What is the MinConfig Settings file? Following these steps will just take your game settings down to the bare minimum configuration. This is helpful when your current game settings are too high for your computer to currently load into a game.

  1. Download the file. Click Here to download the file.
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. Log into your League of Legends account.
  4. Go to your "Config" folder (default location: C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Config)
  5. Highlight, drag, and drop the following files into your "Config" folder: game.cfg and PersistedSettings.json
  6. If a "Copy File" window pops up, click "Copy and Replace" for both conflicts. If not, skip to the next step.
  7. Start a Custom Game by yourself. You should have the minimum configuration settings.
