League of Legends doesn't load at all

So I got the game to properly install and when I boot it up, all it ever shows is this:

2019-07-21_22-59

This is what my log came up with.

My distro is Debian 10 Buster KDE non-free and I was able to install Wine just fine and install Lutris along with the 32bit Vulkan drivers. I’m unsure what’s causing the issue. I am not entirely well experienced with Linux, but if you guys got any ideas I welcome them. Because I’d love to play League on my Debian distrobution.

Same problem for me on Ubuntu 19.04 :confused:.
I’ve tried to copy the “Riot Games” folder ( with already all files from the patch 9.14 installed ) in ~/.wine-appimage-lol/drive_c/.
And the launcher appears but when I enter my username and my password, it tells me “Unable to connect to the authentication service.”, and when I look in the lutris logs it tells me the same error as you :

“0085:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bd4c040 “loader.c: loader_section” wait timed out in thread 0085, blocked by 007c, retrying (60 sec)”

After many tries, I couldn’t get it to load at all on my Debian 10 Buster KDE distro for my life. After distro jumping for a bit I moved over to Arch Linux and I installed Lutris on it along with League of Legends and I was actually able to get the game to run flawlessly on it.

I don’t know what so different between Debian or any of the Ubuntu veriants but for some odd reason I was able to boot it up just fine on Arch but was having issues with Ubuntu and Debian. If anyone can comment on this issue me and Epiuw are having that would be great.
