League of Legends, also known as LoL, is a multiplayer online battleground arena (MOBA) that was developed by Riot Games. It is basically a 5v5 team game where players compete to be the first to destroy the opposing team’s base and win the game. League of Legends is free to play and is available on Windows and Mac computers.
Due to the large number of players playing the game at the same time, players are forced to compete with each other for the number of network requests to the servers that are hosting League of Legends. If your internet connection isn’t up to par, then you will most likely experience high ping and in-game lag which severely affects your gameplay and most likely cause you to lose the game.
To help reduce your latency and have a low ping, you need to use a League of Legends proxy. By using a proxy network, you can connect to a faster and more reliable connection and ensure a lag-free experience when playing League of Legends. A League of Legends proxy can also help you stay safe and gain total anonymity when playing the game.
Depending on what you want, the best League of Legends proxies to use would be either datacenter proxies or residential proxies. If you want a faster internet connection and low latency when playing, then datacenter proxies are what’s best for you. You can use residential proxies if you want to sacrifice a bit of speed to protect your privacy and gain total anonymity.
Let’s configure your League of Legends proxy server.
Note: League of Legends will automatically copy your operating system’s proxy settings.
How To Use Proxies With League of Legends
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save

To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
