I want to play League of Legends (LOL) on my laptop which runs Ubuntu 12.04. Is there any way to play that game on my Ubuntu laptop?

Yes. If your laptop is powerful enough, just run it in a Windows VM. –  fredley Jan 15 '13 at 12:06
    
Think LoL requires DirectX effects that are not available using Windows in a VM... –  Bruno Pereira Jan 15 '13 at 12:23
    
If you really want it to run on ubuntu natively. Please sign a petition for this at change.org/en-GB/petitions/… –  Miro Dec 8 '13 at 13:56

It seems this is possible. There's too much to post here, but there's a lenghty tutorial, with videos on the LoL forums. This method uses Wine to run the game.

It is easy to play LoL through the latest version of PlayOnLinux. Here's a guide that explains how to set it up.

Summary: Install PlayOnLinux from their site (not through the Ubuntu repos, they are out of date), enable Testing in PlayOnLinux, then search for and install LoL through PoL. For more details, check the link above.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  Oyibo Feb 28 '13 at 16:57
