Mid-Season changes are here and apparently it comes in Cool Mint, Lime, and Maple flavors! So hopefully a little something for everyone?
If you're itching to try out the Mid-Season changes or looking forward to how Ms. Rift Herald might shake up the meta but patching issues are keeping you down, check out the steps below which should get you into the client!
>#***Why does the End of Game Stats screen take FOREVER to freakin' load?!***
This might be due to the "Close Client During Game" option in the client. This option makes the client close out when you enter a game, which means after the game it has to completely reboot to start. Low Spec Mode should be enough to keep things running smoothly, so disable this option by entering the client, clicking the gear in the upper right hand corner, a[nd unchecking the box.](http://i.imgur.com/smwR8be.png)
>#***“I’ve tried the Updated Client before, and it was sooooo laggy”***
We've made some massive changes to the Updated Client make it run as smoothly as possible, even on the proudest of potatoes. Enable Low Spec Mode if it isn’t on already. You can find out by clicking the gear in the upper right hand corner of the Updated Client and then [click "Enable Low Spec Mode"](http://i.imgur.com/rPGRnYW.png)
>#***"Patching Failed and we're not sure why Error: 004"***
This error usually occurs when Operating System Permissions isn't set properly. Essentially, the patcher is trying to access files found on your hard drive, but it is being denied from doing so.

>#***"Something's up with our servers and it's preventing you from patching" Error: 003***
Occurs when the patcher isn't able to maintain a stable connection with our Patcher Servers. If the patcher loses connection to the server to get the necessary files, it will simply stop working.
