As myself and many other players have mentioned; there's something wrong.

When connecting to a game, finishing to choose champions the "League of Legends" Icon comes up, and the game doesn't advance to the Summoner Loading Screen. Instead we are greeted with a warm fuzzy message:

"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?"

Thanks for the advice to refer to my firewall's documentation. I've played a game already before this message, so I know it's not my firewall. My internet is working, hence this post, so it's not that either.

I suggest some advice: Cheer me up, I've been reported by 9 people, and I have a big fat RED NUMBER that now equals 1. That means I've left one game. No, I never connected; because of some technical problem with you guys.

Anyway, less of the ranting and raving; we have a problem, how long until it's fixed and will we get our negative scores altered as it is out of our control?

TL;DR - Firewall error. Not Players, Its Riot. Leaving/Reports on our accounts... when is the problem going to be fixed, what will you do to our negative stats that you caused.

Je rappelle juste que quasiment tout les jeux envoie le même message quand on ne peu pas se connecter au serveur ou qu'il y a eu un problème, il n'y a pas que Riot

Same problem here. My friend got in the game, and that game turns out to be 4v2, since 3 opponents seem to have the same problem.

Wow thank god its not just me then. I hope this gets fixed soon, seems like a pretty random bug.

I don't want to get reported for a bug =/ There are enough flamers that report anything that moves out there without having this too -.-

I have this problem aswell, but my problem is that I pressed "Skip waiting for stats" after my game was finnished. Then I got session closed, and when I start up now again, it says I have to reconnect to the game. I cant do anything, and when I press reconnect that window comes up that I cant connect because of my firewall.... Someone help me please ?
