I've only started having this issue recently, but sometimes I lose control of my character. The game doesn't lag and I can chat and watch the rest of the team play but I can't cast any spells including summoners and I can't move my character. It's almost like being perma CC, except your spells are still highlighted.

Sometimes this issue last only a few seconds but once it kept happening over and over for ~15-30 seconds and I had to restart the client to fix it.

Are you sure this is not a problem with your internet/firewalls?

If you could give me any more details (ie: what champions you were playing, what was happening before this freeze up) that would be great.

Also upload your logs if possible.

Nothing unusual was happening before the freeze up. In one game I was playing Malphite a day after the patch that buffed him went live and I was standing at the middle outer tower when all of a sudden I couldn't give him orders. The game didn't freeze like it does when I disconnect; I could still chat and see team battles going on. Then after ~15 seconds of clicking he finally started walking to a place I clicked and I couldn't cancel the order. Only once I restarted the game could I regain control.

Another time was with anivia today. I caught a warwick alone at dragon and stunned/slowed him. But then I couldn't chase him, she just sat there for ~4s while he was running away.

I also had the issue where it seemed like some of anivias spells weren't firing that game, but I think that was due to them becoming invisible as some have noted in another thread.

I generally don't experience any serious network issues besides occasional lag spikes where it seems that everyone has stopped moving and have all the necessary ports forwarded. This is a new issue that I have not encountered prior to the patch that buffed Malphite.

Edit: I've attached the logs from the game

I've had this problem before i just restart when it happens but its so rare that i didn't bother to report it, thinking it was something on my end that was wrong.
(that is, not being able to move or have the champion respond to anything i press, BUT i can chat and watch the rest of the game happening)

hey i get it too while playing for the past few days i would just stand there and cant move... while other enemy champs attack me i cant retaliate... or even when i try to chase sometimes it would go to the last place i clicked and would not let me run back and because it locks up like this it gets me killed.

I have experienced the same problem last night playing Udyr. I played one game perfectly fine as galio, and then about 10 minutes into the game with udyr, he would stop responding every 10 seconds or so. I would click and he wouldnt move until 10 seconds later.

I've had this happen a couple times recently. Definitely something in the last patch or maybe last couple that has started this happening.

No changes to my firewall setup or anything.

I had this happen at the WORST time possible playing Amumu, I was hitting a tower and was trying to back away when it had killed all but the last couple creeps and BAM can't control, can't move away, tower kills me and I look like a complete noob for sitting there and continuing to bash it.

I've had this happen recently, WHILE my latency stayed at 90, while chat worked and everyone else were still moving around and using abilities

happens to me at least once every game, depending on how long the game lasts. every lag spike lasts for about half a minute. i usually manage to reach my tower safely if i spam click to move to it, my hero usually moves after spamming for abt 5 secs. the first lag spike usually strikes during early game within the first 5 minutes when the action isnt as intense.

to my research this is a very common problem for ppl n has existed since the friggin beta, n apparently this annoying problem has yet to b addressed.
