How To Check League Of Legends Server Status

If you’re ready to jump onto this exciting MOBA, but can’t get signed in, there may be some issues going on in the backend. If you’re looking to check to see if you are alone in this situation, or if others are having the same issue, there are plenty of different ways that you’ll be able to do that. One of the most reliable methods of securing your information would be checking websites like Down Detector, which allows players to let each other know if they are having a hard time accessing the game, as well.

You’ll also be able to keep your eyes peeled on Riot Games Services, which will give you information and updates in regards to all of their titles, so you can check your other favorite Riot titles in one spot, like Valorant. Making sure that servers are up and working before you try to sign into one of these titles is key, especially with all of the recent updates that have been coming through for all of your favorite games.

Other Ways to Fix Non-Server-Related Connection Issues for League of Legends

If you’re still running into issues, there is a chance that there could be something going on with your connection, so you’ll need to try a few different things. First, give your PC a restart to see if that clears up any bugs that are residing within your computer. If that doesn’t work, you could always try restarting your router, which may clear up your issues quickly. As a final resort, you could try uninstalling and reinstalling the game, but make sure that you’ve got your credentials in the right spot so you don’t run into any issues when trying to log back in!

Now after you finally get back in you can play through matches with others once again no matter what experience you are looking for and you may be learning even more about how the ranking system works as you are playing through the game.

Why Do Server Issues Happen in League of Legends?

Server issues aren’t anyone’s cup of tea and having to deal with them isn’t the best experience, especially so when they’re stopping you for a long time from accessing the game. Since League of Legends is a heavily based online game it is natural that there would be extra server issues that arise. Whenever a server error does occur, you can rest assured that there will likely be many staff members/developers working on fixing the issue as soon as possible.

Sometimes fixes to the server errors take longer than usual but that’s why checking places such as the Riot Games Services page can be extremely important for getting up-to-date information about the League of Legends server status.

League Of Legends is available now on PC.
