Riot Service Status
Riot has a specific server status for Legends of Runeterra via the official page for League of Legends and other games. Even if the games are on separate clients, it is possible that if one is down, the other will be too. Any issues that occurred within the last 24 hours will appear on the Lol service status page.
If the servers are working properly, players will see “No recent issues or events to report” under the LoR tongue. Players can also check other Riot games shown to see if there is a server issue affecting multiple games.
Sometimes the Riot Server Status page lags slightly behind real-time events. Downdetector is specific to Lol and TFT servers, but can give players an idea of recent outages. A table breaks down the times that outages were reported, as well as specific game and connection issues.
Riot Player Support
Players can ask Riot for help in two ways: by creating a ticket with Riot Support or via Riot Support on Twitter. Any major issues that have occurred within the last 24 hours usually have a statement explaining the downtime on the Riot Support Twitter page.
If your internet connection is stable and no other Riot games outages are reported, it is best for a player to submit a ticket directly to Riot Support. And do not forget to specify that the problem comes from Legends of Runeterra and not one of Riot’s other games.
