While many games do not work on Mac, League of Legends is one of the few that do work on the other operating system. VALORANT, due to their anti-cheat, is one of the popular games players can't enjoy on a Mac. That's why we should be thankful that League is such an old game with outdated client, eh? 

So yes, you can play League of Legends on your MacOS operating system. Since League isn't a very high maintenance game, you won't need to buy the most intense gaming hardware to run it. So, if you've got a Mac and don't mind your precious computer overheating (trust me, my old school Mac hates me when I try to so much as open the LoL client), then these are the steps you should follow to play some fun games with friends.
