Check Riot Games Server Status

The servers may be down which may be causing the game to not let you log in to your access account. Check the Riot Games server status to ensure servers are not down or having problems. Click here to go to the Riot Games server status website. After opening the link to find League of Legends select it and then select the region to scroll down to see if servers are down or having a problem.

If the server is down or having a problem, you can do nothing, but wait until the servers are up.

Change the DNS Server Address

Changing your DNS server can help you to resolve the error. Changing your DNS server address can help If the websites for new games, modifications, or clans were blocked by your previous DNS, switching DNS servers can also grant you access to those content.

Reset Network Settings 

Network Reset can resolve issues with shared network drives or connectivity issues that may arise following version upgrades. You can try to reset the network setting as it may help you to fix the error.

To do that, follow the steps given below:

Reset network settings

  4. Select network reset. Click the reset button next to network reset.
  5. Click yes to confirm the network reset.
  6. Restart your PC after that.

Launch your game after doing this and see if the error still exists.

Disable Internet Protocol Version 6 

The lack of the newer version is mostly the reason behind this error. The IPv6 is not compatible with old games mostly. As it is also the cause of errors in other games. If it is disabled, it may help you to solve the issue.

So to disable IPv6 make sure to follow the steps below:

Disabling IPv6

  3. In the left-hand sidebar, select status and scroll down to click on network reset.
  4. Now click on the network reset screen.
  5. Click yes to continue when a warning message appears.
  6. Once you have followed the steps, Internet Protocol Version 6 will be disabled.

Turn Off Firewall Settings

I recommend turning off your Firewall for a bit to see if the game works this way. Oftentimes firewalls can block specific ports that the game needs for communication. If those ports are blocked you may face these types of errors.

So you can turn it off and launch your game to see if the issue still exists. To disable firewall settings, follow this guide.

Disable Antivirus Temporarily 

Antivirus software can cause conflicts with the game files, and lead to errors like this one. 

  • Mistaking game files for malware leads to deletion or quarantine.
  • Hogging resources during real-time scanning causes game lag or crashes.

You may want to disable your antivirus temporarily. But make sure not to do it for a long time or permanently, as by doing this, your system may face malware threats.

Instead, if disabling helps resolve your issue, I recommend re-enabling the antivirus and whitelist your game folder instead.

Contact Riot Customer Service

If none of the methods above helped you to fix the error, even though they did help me, you can always try contacting Riot customer service, as they may help you resolve the issue. To contact Riot customer care, follow the methods given below:

Submitting a ticket

  4. Tell them about the issue you are facing.

Hopefully, they will guide you soon to resolve the error.

I too have faced many issues playing this game but thankfully League of Legends developers have started to work to fix the error as has been reported by the devs on Twitter
