League of Legends: Wild Rift’s open beta is currently only released in Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand. However, many players outside the beta regions have been using virtual private networks (VPNs) to play the mobile MOBA. This caused the Wild Rift player base to increase rapidly, causing a range of issues from an inconvenience (like language barriers) to outright game-breaking problems (like unplayable lag spikes for everyone—not just the players on VPN). Riot decided to block VPN users as a result to improve the gameplay experience for players in the Open Beta regions. This caused players to encounter an error that says 'Login timed out, please try again.'
What does 'Login timed out, please try again' mean?
This error usually means that the Wild Rift application cannot connect to the Riot servers. There can be many possible reasons for this issue. One of the reasons could be the recent VPN Block. Riot has now prevented VPN access from the highest volume VPN services outside the beta regions effective immediately and continues to evaluate whether additional VPN services need to be added to the list. “It kills us to turn off access to anyone, but we think this is the right move to make sure players in the beta can enjoy Wild Rift the way it was intended to be played,” Riot said.
If players are trying to connect from outside the Wild Rift beta testing regions, they will likely encounter this error. It can also mean Wild Rift is having a network issue. Make sure that your device is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi or a data connection. Players can also check the status of the server via this link.
