Is there going to be any kind of patch or is it just hardware issues?

Most of the assets for the game are held on Riots end to prevent cheating ect. Dues to that you need to be able to access Riots servers to play and get the other half of the information to play.

This patch is the iceberg that is sinking the LoL ship.

I have been banned due to leaving a 3v3 late game because the service was so horrible at the time - glitchy, yesterday, just after the "BUSY" state had ended and they were allowing players into the game... keep up the good work. Sarcasm.

Sturm, you say this is a database issue at its heart.

That doesn't surprise me. You're using MySql, which costs what? Free. Any of you there ever hear ye old "You get what you pay for" axiom? MySql is great for kiddies, students on a budget, and novice programmers getting their feet wet, but if you went into this thing thinking you had an enterprise-class computing stack, you got sold a bill of goods.

I could help you migrate to a better, more robust, powerful, scalable solution, with massive uptime improvements to boot, but it would cost you. I guarantee you, though, that my fees ($120K a year, + hardware + software + 120,000 RP a year) are CHEAP compared to the amount of money you lost *this week alone.*

Contact me @ clary dot david at gmail. Let's talk. If you're ready for a real database that gives you the kind of power, reliability and performance you've actually promised your customers, you're ready to get the hell away from MySql.

Oh, and everyone else not working at riot? Go read my webcomic. It's hilarious. My mom totally says so.

There is a huge queue because everyone is trying to log in at once.

Imagine the pathway from the internet to the login server is like a pipe, and a couple million people are all trying to jam marbles in that pipe at the same time. Obviously, none would get through and it would just sit there with a bunch of marbles stuck in it.

The queue is like a guy standing there, letting one person at a time, drop a marble into the pipe, to make sure nothing gets stuck and no one can log in. After all, it's better that everyone gets to play eventually, than a few people get to play right now and then no one else does, right?

I appreciate what Riot is doing, but I very much appreciate this more specific public announcement. I hope all goes well, you guys will make the best decision.

Why patch at all...the last patch hardly changed anything significant to the gameplay. Besides introducing new champions or balancing them, would it be possible to just avoid unnecessary patches?
