Copy-pasterino of the message:

If your patcher logs show many lines like this:
RADS::Common::HTTPConnection::GetFile: File not found

And that happens with files with a name similar to this:
VarusExpirationTimer.luaobj
XerathMageChainsExtended.luaobj

(note that twice the word "s-e-x" is in the filenames)

The cause is that your provider is blocking any URLs that contain any pornographic content. Apparently that includes cases like this. An other cause are Router protection settings, which may also block the word ***.


If you are experiencing this problem, you can try to get the whole LoL folder zipped from a friend every time you patch, or just call your ISP.

We are allowed to phone up our ISP and opt out of this porn safegaurd thing by the way. To be honest I agree with it even though I do like my copious amounts of weird and wonderful porn, it makes complete sense to have the protection there for kids without asking for it but with the option to remove the block with a simple phone call. they censoring the internet in the OMG THEY TOOK MY RIGHT TO FAP sense. just a soft censorship.

Because it doesn't make sense to have an opt-in service rather than automatic censorship? But of-course, that would be too much effort and good parenting on behalf of those parents who can't even ring up and say "enable the filter" and who'd rather outright ban anything they don't want their child to see rather than making sure the content their child sees in media is not against their wishes. I won't someone think of those poor children who accidentally type '***' into Google!?

Btw anyone could setup settings to stop their child from seeing porn for many years now, but ignorance is bliss. Also Cameron does not give a **** about any child other than his own, it's just politics.

Not talking about s-e-x results in highly increased numbers of unwanted pregnancies. GG, your pensions are safe
