If YOU are unable to reconnect to the game I suggest you to read the following thoroughly and check the thumbnail picture:

Recreated this post since I never got a official response, to make this a Unofficial Quick fix or toolbox, and needed some extras into it, like a poll, and the title was a bit misleading.

Newer RED POST from Jozrael on another post concerning to ghost games, he answered me this:

Sorry for the inconvenience, this bug really sucks to experience .

RED POST from a similar forum post, written byRiot DavieB:
Quote:
It sounds like you experienced what we refer to as a ghost game. It is caused when the game server you were playing on fails to communicate the game-end message to PVP.Net.

Sometimes this issue can be fixed by relogging into League of Legends. Occasionally, restarting your computer may help. These actions force the client to request a new update. However, you may need to wait untl the server refreshes which can take a few hours.

If the issue persists or occurs frequently it may indicate a problem with your connection. Because there are many unique issues that can cause this issue I strongly suggest opening a support ticket so we can trouble shoot this problem and find the cause.

You can make a ticket here: https://support.leagueoflegends.com/tickets/new

I am sorry for the inconvenience and wish you luck in your future matches.

Here is the original Link to the red post: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...62689#31462689

Here is the link to my original forum post 3 weeks ago: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=2704197


My initial reaction: So me and my friends where trying to join a game, one of my friends pressed "accept" on the "Waiting for players" window in just the right time when the game was gonna decline, afterwards it didn't let us start a game because "You and your friend have already been assigned to a different game", we tried re-logging and restarting the computer, the reconnect button screen still pops-up and we don't know what is going on.

Here is a great comment from AvengerXZeroHero in the third page expressing hes concern about the issue and all of the players point of view:

This problem is incredibly annoying and disruptive. Why? Because I play with friends (premade team) in about 99% of the matches I play. Seriously I hate solo queue/ playing alone. This problem effects EVERYONE in the premade which is why it is so troublesome. Each time it happened my friends and I simply waited it out for around 30 minutes-1 hour. Then it went back to normal.

Still this is an annoying problem especially when it is late at night and you're coming from work and just want to get a match or two in with your friends. I also feel bad for the people who seem to be experiencing more severe problems. (Some people can't play a match for hours, or even entire days)

This is becoming a more and more serious problem. Riot you need to look into this.

The client loaded 7/8 confirmed players, froze for roughly 15 seconds, then returned to the home screen and froze.

When I re-opened the client to play, I successfully made my way past the patcher and logged in, but then I'm prompted to reconnect to the game I apparently disconnected from when I first attempted to play. When I click reconnect, the button greys out and nothing happens for a while. I've checked the server status ("online"), restarted my computer multiple times and re-opened the client multiple times after each reboot, but I'm getting the same result and it's been over an hour since I initially attempted to connect (they must be doing well with 5v4? Too bad I'm probably going to get reported for leaving...).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Confirm "Play" on patcher and login
2. Clicked "Play Game" (Summoner's Rift Blind Pick, Auto-matchmaking)
3. Restart client due to client freezing
4. Clicked "Reconnect" and nothing happens after 5-10 minutes
5. Restart computer after a few tries
6. Repeat steps 3 thru 5

LoL is tons of fun at its best, but it's just becoming progressively more and more frustrating to deal with, left a bad taste in my and my friends' mouths after last night's issues online.

I never was sent into the lobby to pick a champion. After, a minute, I close the client, and log back in. Now faced with a "Game Abandoned" [ RECONNECT ], I click reconnect, the button goes grey, and nothing happens.

I assume I can just wait a little til they finish the game. Just wanted to bring this to your attention. I'll update with about how long it takes to be able to join queue again.

SO, i quickly dodged it by alt f4ing. After a while, i came back and i had the reconnect option. I mean, how is this even possible. I dodged it at most 1 minute after i see the freeze. Then i couldn't reconnect. Sooo im stuck here not sure if I'm in a game or not

An error message popped up and said i was already assigned to a game and couldn't join a new one. After this I logged out and when i logged back in it took me to the reconnect to game screen. When i click reconnect nothing happens and after logging in and out about 5 times since over the course of an hour it is still taking me to the reconnect screen. I would really like to play tonight so if someone could help solve this issue i would greatly appreciate it.

I decided to post on this thread as opposed to making my own, because this has way more information than I would ever have. I have the same issue as many, except a little more.

I clicked accept for my ranked solo queue game, I saw 5/10 people accept, then my client froze. I let it sit there for about two-three minutes while doing other things, and I get kicked out of the queue. I try to start up another game, and then receive a dialog box that I can't join a game because I'm already assigned to one (see the screenshot below). I try this a few times with no success, and then close the client, only to get stuck on the reconnect screen after login. I also let this screen sit there for about 7 minutes with no changes, so I restarted my computer and still got the same error when trying to login. Currently it's been about 30 minutes since this problem started, and I am still experiencing the same login issue.

I have also included a dxdiag.txt file in case this will be of use.

Same issue as Avelice, though we got 8/10 people accepting, then it SEEMED as though no one else hit accept. However, this lasted for a full minute before just going back to the home page. When trying to re-queue, it told me I couldn't because I was already committed to a game. Relogging got me to the reconnect screen.
