Well, i've just joined a game and champion selection went off without a hitch.
The league of Legends logo pops up as normal, and it's just stuck there.
After awhile, an error box pops up, stating:
Failed to Connect
Unable to connect to the server. If you have a firewall, it may be blocking the connection. Please refer to your firewall's documentation. Would you like to retry the connection?

Tried pressing retry several times, all ending with the aforementioned problem. Pressing cancel and then retrying to reconnect from the launcher yields the same problem again. I don't want to be labeled with a leave, i've had internet connection problems before but this is the first time of this exact problem.

My firewall has 4 exceptions for the game client, 25 for the launcher and 4 for the lobby. There are 3 exceptions for the Pando Media Booster too. I really doubt this is a problem with the firewall. Help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

After Champion Select, the game crashes
1. Did you copy someone else's install? You need to reinstall LoL
2. Double check your Firewall, Ports and Anti-Virus settings with the tips listed above.
3. Make sure your DirectX is fully updated.
4. Use this Microsoft Fix for DirectX
5. Did you recently use System Restore? Try this:
-Go to your League of Legends Folder (Default- C:\Riot Games\League of Legends)
-Open lol.game.version using a text editor like notepad
-Where the file reads <version>x</version>, lower the number in between the version tags by one, save the file and then start the launcher to try to re-patch.
Try updating/reinstalling your Adobe Air also and if it doesnt help go here.
