League of Legends is an online MOBA and like any online service, can suffer from server connection failures and other issues. If you have trouble logging into your game client or have high ping (ms) during your match, check League of Legends server status, as server outages can be one of the reasons. While previously there was no way of knowing about server outages from Riot’s side, independent websites like the Downdetector could help players check League of Legends server status. Eventually, Riot decided to set up a dedicated page (https://status.riotgames.com/) which players can go to and check League of Legends server status and report any issues.
Using Riot Games website to check League of Legends server status
Players can visit the Riot Games service status page and check the status of all Riot’s games including Legends of Runeterra, VALORANT, Wild Rift, and of course, League of Legends.
If there are no issues, the page will show ‘No recent issues or events to report.’ Players can also check recently closed messages and can bring an issue to Riot’s notice by clicking on ‘REPORT AN ISSUE’. Select individual games to go to their specific service status pages. Riot also posts updates on Riot Games Support and their official League of Legends Twitter accounts about any issues with specific servers. For example:
