Can't Access League Of Legends NA - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as na.leagueoflegends.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

You can't connect people Trolls have already spread the word of the "thereisnouflevel" This is causing the game to crash and Riot is going to eventually just shut the game down until they can recode it because of hackers. You guys are doing so much harm playing while it is down and updateing. Riot is being attacked and you are helping..

If you have this problem: PVP.net Patcher Kernel has stopped working. You need to right click the icon and click run as administer. It will then let you play.

Daniel Ward · 17 March 2014 - 15:28

If you type "thereisnourflevel", then you have a chance to lose your account. Just a headsup.

when you lanch it just type on your keyboard "thereisnourflevel" and it will allow you to hit play

If the play button is black and your server says "UNDeFIned" just type "thereisnourflevel" and that should resolve it. Don't ask why, but it works.

I think it's worth noting that there's a possible ddos situation going on right now. So there's nothing Riot can do other than try and get white hats on it; furthermore, the problem would still persist until the ddos stopped. Don't give the ddosers attention. That's what they crave.

Update: First attempt states Server is Busy. Exited client, and was able to hop into a log-in queue. The queue started around 1:45, with 9000+. Riot has also posted an update: forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=4238902, and is therefore looking into the problem with connectivity.

Logged in. Ranked's are disabled. Checking blind pick 5's... it's available. Checking if game connects... I'm in.

P.S. Don't compare Riot to Blizzard, you moron. Riot's original group approached Blizzard with the concept of League of Legends, and were TURNED DOWN. Riot is now #1 in terms of connecting with their community, #1 in user-friendly service and customer support. Where is Blizzard? Twiddling their thumbs wishing they had jumped on the bandwagon.

Sammie Lupo · 30 January 2014 - 20:24
United States · Charter Communications

People who are complaining about the game going down clearly have not played any Nexon games. Riot actually fixes their shit, and promptly.. learn to appreciate the fact that they're on top of what's going on, because in comparison to most gaming companies, this one is by far the fastest to respond. So sit down, shut up, and browse Youtube to kill some time, f#!king cry-babies.

Well I think this may be related to your ISPs, my friend is having issues but I'm not having any at all. I doubt it's Riot cause then it'd me a mass problem, not just a select few. What ISPs do you all have, I think that's more likely the cause.

Edit: crazy thought here, but i had heard on the new year "DERP" had hacked a bunch of video games. etc. could it be a possibility that league was just wiped out? very nervous over here, want to cry...
