Today I started a game on rift as usual, but after champion selection when the game loads, there was a black screen, and eventually an error box that said "Unable to connect to server", and then some other text about how it may be a firewall issue. I don't think that's it, as I've allowed all instances of League in my normal firewall (Although there doesn't seem to be anything about League in the Windows Firewall), and I've even tried disabling the firewalls.

I personally have been playing League at my current location for 3 months now, and there haven't been any problems. I cannot personally open ports in my server (I have considered opening ports 5000-5500 but I cannot actually do it myself), and I don't see how that would be the problem considering how long League has been working before this.

This topic seemed to be posted before(?) but had very little reponse, I am also reposting in case someone else is having the same problem.

Thank you for your time, and I apologize to whatever players I abandoned in the game that was unable to enter.

I just got this issue, and it's so frustrating, I turned off all my firewalls, and I don't have access to the router (I'm in college). It's even more annoying because my roommates behind me are playing there own game right now.

Same.. I cant join a game. I left it for 1.5 hours came back and it still trying to connect to a game that doesn't exist..

I even had a game on my smurf account and the came back to main account and it still wanted to connect to a game that doesnt exist.

Riot fix pleae ASAP.

Soo many people complaining about the same thing.. must be a client/sever bug issue. And I only really get these issues from bad programming. Not internet issues.

This issue just happened to me aswell and I'm pretty sure firewall has nothing to do with it because I had just played a game before.

Also suffering from this, unable to reconnect each time you press it hangs at a black screen, same error message comes up.
