If you are having Problems downloading the Patch, do the following:
load it from the North American Servers

How to do it:
Go to your LoL-Folder/Rads/ and then edit 2 files (make backups!!):

lauchner.cfg to:

gameProject=lol_game_client_sln
airProject=lol_air_client
airConfigProject=lol_air_client_config_na
and
system.cfg to:
DownloadURL=l3cdn.riotgames.com
DownloadPath=/releases/live
Region=NA
just start your launcher and download
after that just delete them and restore your backups and u are back on EUW servers!

at least i got 1 Mb/s and not 20Kb/s :P


Edit:
Little update, don't worry about the percentage staying at 33%, look at MB's dropping

Edit2:
Some users still having problems, which may be solved, turning on or off Peer to Peer. Try to mess around with that

u have to download 4 MB of files, in order to change to EUW.
But at least u don't have to dowload 500 MB and those 4 MB are downloaded in 5 minutes, so just wait.

and if u don't like the solution don't forget: never play on patch day :P
