We've released a fix that should be applied when you start up League. Let me know if anyone is still having issues!
**UPDATE @ 1400 AEST**
Fix incoming around 1600 AEST if all goes to plan. [More info here](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/xAWysx0u-2016-08-24-loading-patching-issues?comment=0005)
As of the 6.17 patch this morning, we're seeing a number of reports of issues loading the client and patching. We're aware of an issue at the moment with our patching service, and we're working to fix it. Stay tuned for updates in this thread.
Hopefully we'll get it fixed up nice and quickly so you can get back into game :)
