Here's how you can check if League of Legends is down.

League of Legends is Riot Games' flagship title and it is played by millions of players worldwide. However, this game is not without problems. Just like any other online game, League of Legends servers are also subject to issues every now and then. The Riot Games servers sometimes tend to malfunction and they can even randomly kick players out of matches or completely prevent them from joining games.

League of Legends servers are prone to many different issues and they become temporarily unavailable at times. Here's how you can check if League of Legends is down.


Possible Reasons for League of Legends Login Issues

Some of the common symptoms for League of Legends login issues are:

  • You receive an error on the login screen that is not related to your credentials.

  • Your connection times out during the login process.

You can do the following checks to solve the issue at hand:

Select the Correct Region on the Client

Right after clicking on the League of Legends icon, before hitting the 'Play' button, check the region that you are logging. You can do so by glancing at the top right corner of the window. Make sure to login into the region where you currently have your account.

Sync Your Clock

If your Windows OS Clock is out of sync with real time, it will not provide Riot servers with correctly timestamped certificates. As a result, this could affect connectivity to the League of Legends servers, store or matches. You can sync your clock manually. Here's how you do it:

  • Right-click on your computer's clock and choose 'Adjust Date/Time'.

  • Select the 'Internet Time' tab, and click the 'Change Settings' button.

  • At this point you may receive a UAC prompt. After this prompt, click the 'Update Now' button to resync.

Check Riot Servers

Usually, before performing any of the above-mentioned troubleshooting steps, it is worth checking the current status of the League of Legends server that you are trying to connect to.


The third-party website called Downdetector is an excellent alternative for checking if League of Legends servers are down. This website monitors server outages in real time and hence is reliable. You should also keep an eye on Riot Games' social media handles such as Twitter and Instagram where it discusses issues pertaining to servers and outages.
