(PST)
7:38pm - Organizing Rioter stream to entertain you all during the downtime.
7:28pm - One of our internal systems ran out of memory. The servers will be down for a minimum of 2 hours.
7:18pm - Patcher set to Unavailable while we diagnose.
7:13pm - Button pressed.
7:07pm - Reports of massive game lag.
7:03pm - Games not starting. Login failures. Unknown errors. Investigating.
6:44pm - Bear brought me a box of chocolate covered rice crispy treats. Awesome.
6:18pm - Everything still running smooth. Button disabled.
6:04pm - Everything still looking good so far. Everyone who was stuck in champion select will need to restart their clients in order to play again.
5:45pm - All systems are back online. Monitoring as we funnel players back in. Login queue time around 20 minutes.
5:31pm - One of the new boxes that was added to our server cluster failed and promptly removed. Queue time is currently 25 while we filter players back in.
5:01pm - We are currently having login and game start issues.
4:51pm - Chat, platform, and server issues presumably resolved.
4:47pm - Website back online.
4:36pm - Web issue identified as an issue with the firewall.
4:33pm - Chat issues, platform issues, website issues, and server issues all simultaneously being triaged.
4:30pm - Button pressed for North America.
4:23pm - Confirmed reports of platform issues. Summoner disconnects, crashes, and login failures. Began triaging live issues. Website back up.
4:10pm - Still working to remedy web issue. Players are able to login to the North American platform fine. Web issues not affecting PvP.Net.
3:55pm - Site extremely slammed. Put up the maintenance page to alleviate the server workload while we continued triaging.
3:47pm - Still triaging. Cause still elusive as the forums are serving intermittently, but most of the time inaccessible. Apache server began choking up.
3:38pm - Triaging of web servers in progress. Many boxes are responding while some are not. (Which made this very difficult to pinpoint and is also why some people were able to visit the website while others were not.)
3:30pm - North American forums and website went down. Investigation proceeded.

12:30pm - Audit complete. Corrupt data found in several locations. Downtime extended to 2p.m.
9:35am - Patch deploy took much longer than expected. Began patch audit.
3:04am - European servers explode (not literally). Not going to go into too much detail here but the issues that affected EU resulted in a considerable amount of our operations and production staff (the same staff that has been triaging NA all morning as well) were called in to address the issues. I'm going to bring them cookies tomorrow.
3:04am - All users out of games.
1:34am - Autoshutdown initiated for scheduled downtime.

Can you guys post the "Live streaming" in announcements for people to see. It gets tiring when useful threads gets lost, overlooked, or opened late. I know a lot of players from my buddy list that missed the stream because it wasn't on the homepage.

Brand looks awesome! I love the A.o.E champions, currently i'm playing Nasus and LOVE him. But i'm going to save up 6,300 IP and buy Brand to try him out. Im only at like 500 now but still, I can't wait!!

As i was playing Brand last night, I cast my ult on Sivir, somehow she dodge the spell? Is this like a one time random happening? I have 2 witnesses to this as well.

Did she perhaps just cast her spell shield at the last second?
