    So I received my 15in 2.7 512 460 on the 15th and it has been a blast to use. Before this I used a 2012 rMBP as my daily machine.

    The problem I have been experiencing with LoL is after loading into a game, the screen will freeze but the game continues to run in the background. Shop can be bought from, items moved, etc.

    This issue doesn't happen on my 2012. I play in fullscreen and have tried resetting and using different graphical settings to no avail. The screen unfreezes after minimizing and reopening the game client a random number of times. Sometimes it doesn't freeze at all and other times it will take 10 or more min+max to unfreeze.

    This is extremely frustrating because of my having to be afk to fix this.

    Is anyone else experiencing this on their new Macs? I feel like it has to be an issue with the new ones because of the lack of it happening on my 2012.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Yeah mine does that too. At first I thought it was maybe the beta client. But now I think it's probably something to do with the new MacBook

    Does LoL have a full-screen windowed mode? This is often more reliable (if a bit slower) than full-screen mode.

    it does have a windowed mode but the game window can't be moved. when I drag it to center it, the window snaps back to where it was offscreen. that's why I have to fullscreen it.

    Lol if this is an AMD driver issue, this could take a while to fix since Apple doesn't really focus that much on updates for graphic drivers in macOS.

    But since the macbook pro 2016 are new, maybe they will fix these buggy drivers in the next Sierra iteration?

    LoL in ARAM is crazy bad late in the game on my 13" tMBP. Which has to be a software issue since I play plenty of other games on high settings smoothly and without issue. I'm hoping they fix the bugs SOON.

    I installed the latest beta of sierra and the game is still broken as far as I can tell.

    have you try to change the resolution to the 1440x900 ?
    in the system pref --> displays ---> select scaled and choose "looks like 1440x900" and try launch the game again

    I'm not a LoL player, I mean rarely play this game, very rare, but when I try just now, everything is running smooth no glitch. Playing just about 18 minutes.
    Radeon pro 455 here

    When you get in game, try minimizing and reopening the game window a bunch of times. Lately I've been noticing it won't freeze immediately upon entering a game but doing that should replicate the issue.
