when i start the client, i get to the login screen and submit my info. then for 30 seconds it says "retrieving data from server... logging in"

then after about 30 seconds i get this error:

Connection Error
Connection Failure: Unable to connect to the League of Legends platform server.

i can't tell if maybe the servers aren't up all the time so this is not an error, or if there is actually something wrong and i should be able to play.

Servers are actually down when you get these error.
When you are in the next Minutes/hours getting an error that your Beta Key isn't active our Beta Keys aren't active, only the developer ones so theres so mistake @ you, its just because the servers are offline or our keys are locked.

Servers were brought down because they accidentally forgot to deactivate the new keys, heh

any idea when they will be back up? I just received my key tonight so I'm assuming I'll have 1 week to play until my key gets locked. Is that correct? sorry for these questions but I couldn't find answers to them anywhere else.

You will be able to play when the servers are up- potentially up until launching time.

And if you do try to login and it says your beta key is inactive, don't panic. That just means the system is still down.

Well done by the way with the new login animation.

"Swoosh... unlocking... glowing doors slide open to unveil........... Key Inactive" =)
