Hello everyone,

Here is my problem. When I try to log in, I (most of the time) get into the player queue, where I have to wait for about 10-20 seconds. After that, I get the following failure:

Quote:
Connection Failure: Unable to connect to the PVP.net server.
Information regarding what may have caused this error can be found here.
Service availability can be viewed on the League of Legends Server Status web page.
Sometimes, I don't get into player queue and after a few seconds, the same error appeares. I already tried to connect to the US and the Nordic servers (I have an account on each), but I get the same error.
There's nothing wrong with my internet connections, since everything else works. And also, 1 to 2 hours earlier, a friend of mine actually played with his account at my computer.

I remember a trick, where you would delete a file from the LoL folder, which would get redownloaded, whenyou would start LoL again afterwards. But I can't remember what file that was..
Can someone help?

Thanks in advance

Greetings Summoners,

My name is Nossaj, I am a member of your League of Legends Technical Player Support team and I'm here to tell you about a change in the upcoming patch. In an effort to increase the stability of our servers, we will be making a change to our chat system which may result in some players receiving this error message upon attempting to log in:

In preparation we'd like to proactively help you make some changes that could prevent you from losing any play time. The most common solution is to sync your Windows clock. Double check that the Time, Date and especially year settings are correct.

Other Solutions: An out of date Windows install may generate this error.

Please update Windows here: update.microsoft.com

Your firewall may be blocking the connection. Make sure that you have exceptions set for the League of Legends PVP.Net server in your firewall. Add this executable to your exception list:

C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_air_client\releases\0.0. 0.68\deploy\LolClient.exe

NA: beta.lol.riotgames.com

EUW: prod.eu.lol.riotgames.com

EUNE: prod.eun1.lol.riotgames.com

If none of this resolves your issue feel free to visit our more detailed Knowledge Base article here:

Hey Vuxadin!
I had to deal with some other issues the last days. When I tried to add the Windows Firewall exceptions, I realized, that my Firewall somehow was bugged. So I had to deal with that first.
But now, after fixing this problem, I tried all of your solutions. I even reinstalled LoL, but it didn't help. Is there anything else you could suggest? Otherwise I think I will open a support ticket. The strange thing is tho, (as mentioned above) it stoped working withing hours. My friend played on my computer with his account, 1 - 2 hours later I couldn't connect anymore.. -.-

can't play lol anymore, it's always having this issue: connection fail.
I cannot ping or tracert any *pvp.net servers (tried with 3 ISPs and 3 different computers)...

I had hoped with each patch you would fix your f***ing servers, but alas, that will obviously never happen.

I have one solution for this problem: uninstall lol, cause it's a waste of space and never bother with even thinking about the game.
