When you say 'random pings', do you mean lag spikes? I play LoL occasionally and I don't notice a difference between Spotify being open or closed.

 

Try this: before your next match, open up Spotify and create a playlist entirely of local files, and see if you experience lag on LoL during that playlist. This will help us determine if the bandwidth occupied by streaming is causing your issues with LoL.

With random ping i mean, there isn't continuously but sometimes ping goes 1000 for 6 7 second then becomes normal. 

 

I don't have any local song on my computer, can i download them without premium ?

Spotify does use p2p currently on the desktop, which can cause some network irregularities.

Try playing Spotify from the web player when playing games instead (which doesn't use p2p):
play.spotify.com
