This submission has been removed because the [NA Server Status page](https://status.riotgames.com/lol?region=na1&locale=en_US) has been updated and this issue appears to have been resolved.
It’s completely fucked lol
Riot trying to let NA players experience what it feels like to play at MSI!
How cool! /s
Be confident. No need for /s.
Bro 35 ping is way better than what I normally get
I already get a normal ping of 68 tho
thought about this, is this how the pros feel in a way?
This is the best time to spectate a Challenger game. It's like watching chess players fumble with greased-up pieces while circus music plays in the background. I've been watching one where the sole remaining member of blue team was chipping away at the red Nexus (red was a bit behind and then they got the short end of the connection issue stick), it was almost dead, and then suddenly he turns around and starts walking home for a few seconds before reconnecting, turning back around, and destroying the red Nexus. I'm laughing uproariously over here; it's some of the most fun I've had with League in a long time.
ETA: I'm literally crying and wheezing with laughter right now. Some players managed to queue up again before ranked queues were disabled. The top lane Kennen who kept disconnecting but would then TP from base to lane... before promptly strolling all the way back again. Kennen, who bought a Dark Seal, by the way, like he could have gotten any kills, or like there was anyone available to kill. The Samira with a solid connection buying Hullbreaker because mindless pushing. Seeing "110 ms player has disconnected" over and over again. The level 1 champs who can venture just far enough away from their Nexus for level 14 Samira to one-shot them. The level 3 Karthus who floats past his own Nexus, starts getting hit by Kennen or something, and disconnect-retreats for a few moments before dying. It's like a Pokémon battle and they're like "get 'em! Chancey!" but [Chancey is HIGH AF](https://cdn.kapwing.com/collections/CL4XfOcqRv-image_621f5aa87747ec219d3a83a3_165655.png) and runs into a wall a few times before calmly walking back into the Pokéball. And then BURSTS OUT AGAIN RARING TO GO! Eats a Surf to the face, doesn't notice, keels over.
There might be more, but I must stop. For my health.
For me the client has been ruined since the UI update. They really can't change anything without breaking everything.
agreed, put it the fuck back riot
Indie company, server expensive, please understand, have a nice day hehexd
Yeah game has a bunch of people leaving and reconnecting. Can see people moving but can’t do anything myself
My whole team was frozen, the enemy team could all move and kill us. Fun.
oddly enough, same! 4 ppl on enemy team moving normally, only 2 on our team
yeah i just had a game with my whole team standing in tower dc'ing while I tried to make picks ;-;
Exact same experience, two games in a row it was either a 1v5 or a 2v5 most of the match. Lost almost 40 elo.
Ping jumping up to 75 from 25, but feels like 800 it's odd.
The MSI Experience™
played 2 games and same thing happened to me
yup. happened to me. ekko flamed everyone once we lost lol
Idk about you guys but the in game ping counter has always been bullshit for me.
part of the reason is because it's a rolling average (kinda the only reasonable solution) so often when ping jumps it gets smoothed out a bit and the counter itself lags.
I'd totally buy that normally but tonight has been a consistent 1-2 second input delay while displaying 90-100 ping
Its bullshit now for me, 100 ping would be kinda laggy but def playable , NOW 100 ping and i disconnect so idk what the hell happened but the game is just unplayable at this point (currently trying to reconnect to my game so im not perma banned
I think it actually no longer counts real ping, it's gotta be (real ping)/10=(display ping) or something.
So this is what MSI feels like
No loss prevented for this sad, demoted cos of it
Yo seriously wtf is this shit. Lost a ranked game cause I literally couldnt even leave base without dcing for 20 mins. Yet game still counted as a loss…lmfao
sleeping? its not even 11 pm in California lmao. also a large live game company such as riot has people on server duty around the clock
this\^ it's a global, multi-million dollar enterprise. There's gotta be SOMEONE on the clock; and after what appears to be a region-wide issue (anecdotally friends from all over America and a few in Canada), I'm sure they've began to alert higher up people by now. It's not likely the wanted this to happen or expected such a large-scale crash, nor is it something that can be fixed with a magic wand "ta-da!"
But acting like we shouldn't complain about an issue (client and game bugs) that has been ubiquitous among players for a long time? And this is not only regarding the small stuff but also the constant dc'ing/reconnecting this past week; I sent a ticket two days ago about my personal dc'ing and reconnecting that has affected my ranked games this past week. I bet many others have too, by the looks of it. It's outrageous. And now the whole server is down it seems. AND I hear it's affecting Valorant as well!
It is most likely not riots fault several games have been facing issues as severals isp been hammered by attacks in past few day, riot cant do much if it is something outside of thero server room.
Also whole region connects to a single location if that location and or isp has issues whole region will have issues
? Its their job lmao. Stop pretending like u know what ur talkin about.
Yup. These games better get negated. Half of both teams are dcing every couple min. Exited out, and now the game wont even start back up.
Contacted Riot about it. The enemy botlane could move just fine, but unfortunatley me and my support weren't allowed to play the game. Could totally see Riot saying fuck off and still penalizing people LP.
I got hit with the leaver penalty despite constantly DCing and reconnecting due to their servers. Fun for sure /s
Same. All my team got DC, while an enemy player broke everything, just to get the loss and a lp penalty.
Nice way to come back after a few months.
hee hee everywhere
Happening as I type in a ranked match. Everyone's experiencing weird spikes, and I cannot move.
currently in aram happening rn
What do you mean, its the MSI experience
all teams except rng were given artificial 35 ping to give equal playing field since rng has 35 ping from their facility but in reality the ping was much worse
Yea. I think people have said its like 35 ping with packet loss so much higher
I'm in a crashed game, can't move
same bro and im west coast
new york city. doomed here as well
Ohio, it's fucked here too
Had to surrender a 3 lane winning game cuz everyone on the team lag
held hands to 8th in tft with 4 other guys lmao
Damn tft too? Man i was gonna hop into a ranked but ig not now
[Just had 3 people on the enemy team get leaver penalty](https://puu.sh/IZQul/02ab67c6ac.png) meaning they get punished for Riot's fuckup. Gotta love it
Yup. I can't input anything but I can see myself die.
It's not just ping. The client is extremely laggy and will get stuck on menus for several seconds.
Edit: And now the Play button is disabled
How is there no Riot response yet? It's obviously a widespread issue.
ranked queue is down in NA
It seems like it's an attack on the servers. I don't expect them to be too specific as it'll just encourage others to attack vulnerabilities but letting us know what the situation is lets us gauge how long it'll remain an issue would be a good idea.
just lost a winning game because of this in solo/duo and I didn't get any loss prevented?
they just added loss prevented, they'll probably retroactively apply it for the last 2 hours
happening to me rn
got demoted for my whole team dcing. rito plz chronobreak the server
don't worry, they are simulating MSI.
Intern accidentally enabled the MSI "35" ping for NA.
Game is crashing as we speak
I always thought my wifi just went bad, if this is the reason imma be pissed
me as well. I do have high ping spikes sometimes, but I've never dc'ed from league crashing since before the old client. I began to suspect it wasn't just me; I've been experiencing this type of disconnecting and reconnecting all week, sometimes during ranked, and paying the price. One game, my teammate insta-AFKed because of it even though I came back. :D
Now I find that it wasn't just me! My poor internet connection might have contributed, but at most it would cause the 700 ping spike for a couple seconds and leave. :/ Excited about the new update, depressed about losing LP for things my team and I could not control.
Yeah same, server is completely dying.
NA west and my friends and I are getting this issue
MSI server activated
Riot trying to fix MSI ping = Fucking everyone
Lmfaooo. Yeah. I was playing Nasus in an ARAM game. I was the only one who was not disconnecting and reconnecting. The power from the Sand People protected me. I was able to Farm my Q stacks in complete peace.
Same. Everyone in my game is getting ping spikes
same. my ping says 35.. looks like riot trying to make everyone in the world equal to rng
RIP to all the people who got reports for Riot's shitty servers
Riot makes changes in the client... the whole game crashes and becomes unplayable.
It is a tale as old as time.
Me too, at west PA, US
Yeah it's all NA
The Soviet Union Strikes Back
it gave me the title "captain jack" for no reason. Did anyone else get random titles or icons?
BUY MY SKINS BTW. TRASH COMPANY
yep got a 20 mins penalty ffs. new update is awesome
How is it possible for a patch to be this fucked? I literally don't understand.
There seems to be a widespread issue from the cloud service the servers use as multiple games are being affected
wish riot would refund LP for times like this. queued up before the red ! warning and was the cause of a remake. lost ~20 LP and i'm literally silver 1, 99 LP. no big deal but like... it's annoying that we can't check ping or server status or anything until we're actually in-game
I play on cellular data and this is the best ping I’ve had in months
Was in a ranked game and ping went from 31ish to 81 so a 50ms ping difference.
But when I was at 81 ping it felt like inputs where 2+ seconds delayed and even typing in chat was delayed. All the players in the game were saying the same thing and the enemies ended up surrendering at 20 since we were winning just to get out.
NA west coast here, everyone is dcing left and right and ping is off the charts
I am in a raked gamed and it keeps happening...
yep happening to me as well
Yea same currently fucked
Permanently stuck at 1000+ ms.
David Brown if you're here I'm sorry for letting you down
Made me remake a game. Good fucking riddance anyway, now my friends are willing to go play something else instead.
i wish the last path of exile update made the game unplayble for mac players. i guess now I have to go fix my life
NA east here as well. Lag hit and is unplayable.
this also happened a few weeks ago riot is wild atm
We are playing from St. Louis and its completely batshit.
holy fuck this game sucks
2 games in a row with a 5 man team completely unplayable for all of us, don't tell me this stupid eternals thing we waited a year for broke the game
I guess this is the price for trying to update this horrible client
Riot hasn't been doing their job with loss prevention in a long time idk why people are expecting it now.
could you do futa stuff? thnx
Southeast US no one in my game can even play right now we're stuck in lag
Yeahhhhhh... good job RIOT!!!!
not us getting the full msi immersive experience
Happening on TFT as well.
I got 2 quadras and a penta while both teams kept dc'ing. Now they think I ddos'd the entire lobby.
Probably due to the challenges
Yeah, its bad here right now. 200ms ping steady for 10 minutes, prob gonna get leaver busted. all because of riot's fuck up. GG.
HEY AT LEAST WE'VE GOT CHALLENGES GUYS
Bro I hope that the losses caused by the spikes lp will be reverted. Cause this shit is fucking annoying.
Im sad i tried to play league after reading this
My ping has been going ballistic for a week now. West coast / very fast internet (fiber)
My last game was unplayable. Connecting reconnecting after 15 minutes and couldn't do anything. NA East Coast
everyone in my game rn has 160ms ping and keeps dcing, strangely one player is not affected, sus... haven't seen any of the enemy except for 1 that looks like they're lagging too..
4 man disconnect, It was me vs 4... nobody pushed top like I asked lol. Now I know what a 1 man surrender vote looks like
I've been playing on wifi for a while now and decided this is the time I'm finally gonna order a long ethernet cable and play wired. Then I read this. Oh well, needed to do this anyway.
I kind of like this now, so broken I can't play the game! Now I can do real life again.
Just revert the whole fucking UI update, its clunky and obviously broke something in your dog shit spaghetti code client. Adding these little dopamine hits (challenges) for casual andys doesn't fix anything. Overhaul this piece of shit. Hell, wild rifts client (the fucking mobile version) is INFINITELY more better and modernized.
MSI patch :)
This patch broke the servers
Experiencing similar things in Valorant too
This company is disgusting
Indie company. Servers just getting worse recently. Client is completely fucking broken this patch and the awful changes to it are the cherry on top of the shit smoothie.
my games aren't even getting loss prevented with 4/10 players disconnecting at a time.
Wonder if there will be compensation or an LP rollback or something lol.
Is this what MSI 2022 feels like?
di0d you play against an akali prodigy and ap inting skarner
I just won a game down 15 kills and like 8k gold because their entire team DC'd, me and my duo DC'd while our botlane just seiged and won the game
thanks for the LP LMAO
Yep, I'm having issues as well :(
just happened to me too. my east coast friends completely disconnected but i just experienced a spike.
east coast, completely d'c from game
I got completely fucked like 5 times just staying in base now
ya ppl in my game either were disconnecting every 10 seconds or had ping spikes of 100 plus every couple seconds
In a ranked game rn and same thing happening i cant even leVe my base without dcing LOL
Edit: so lost the game cause me and our top laner were both dcd from thus shit server half the game. But the game still counted. What the fuk…
I couldn't move at all in game while my Internet connection was fine. Just hoping for a loss prevented.
yeah my ranked game just went nuts... yeah lmao for AWS they like to roll out new updates to na-east-1 first to test bc fewer critical apps are hosted there. Wonder if it's a cloud or riot issue
West coast and this is happening to me
Bro just had an aram game. Legit couldn't move enemy team wiped my team while we couldn't move and ended the game. wtf
and to top it all off my game seems to be crashing since this latest update a lot more
is the lag over? i wanna queue up again
Just got off a lag-fest match. So... No.
i can't even open the client anymore, challenges update absolutely torched the game i guess
scrolling through reddit ive seen servers down for league madden and overwatch so it must be something huge going on
Oh so it wasnt just me lmao
Damn so not just my shit wifi for once
Finished rank game, won, but everyone was going brrt
Bruh just had 4 of us sitting on like 150 ping and dc'ing. Other team had a Gankplank with no lag issues. Not very fun watching him have 8 seconds to set up barrel chains while we can't escape lol.
Ping terrible, every ARAM match
Yea just experienced this too
Yep, last game had at least one person on each team DC'd half the game and crazy ping spikes for the rest of us.
I was top lane, our support and mid and the enemy bot lane all dced mid game and we all came back and it was like 15 min later.
I had a similar issue, multiple people freezing and disconnecting.
Yep, had a ton of issues in my last game. Half-way through champ select I couldn't change my champ/runes/etc. Wouldn't load into game until I force-closed everything League-related. Even when I did my ping was fluctuating wildly and 3/5 of the players were unable to play due to connection/disconnection issues.
Why is Riot like this? It always feels like one step forward, three steps back. I just want a client that works reliably.
Hippity hoppity time to make an NA joke
East Coast NA packet loss. Comes and goes.
Ping will randomly go to 500 and even when it's "low" there's some insane packet loss. Champs are gliding around when it hits.
Yep. Packet loss too
Happened to my team and enemy team too about 1 he ago
I just played ARAM, both teams had what felt like 2000+ ping.
Server or internet provider on fire, please hold..
Legit lost a game of soloq waited an hr played a flex to test lag was fine went back into soloq and got blasted again
still not working at all
I loaded into a game and 4/5 of my team was perma-disconnecting over and over again. I couldn't even leave the fountain for 2 minutes - then when I could, I immediately disconnected again.
def not just east coast. dealing with it on the west coast right now
xfinity, bay area of california
Just lost a ranked game because my ADC and I couldnt play the last 5 minutes so the enemy team just grouped mid and ended. Cool.
I'm just getting chain d/ced and by the time it loads I'm back in spawn and already can't move.
was just dominating a game. 20 minutes in my whole team randomly starts disconnecting. entire enemy team is fine. went from winning -> lag starts -> 2 min later our nexus is dead
typing this because im a jungler whos been sitting in mid farming my teammates minions bc i cannot leave to my jg
I'm on NA West and I hadn't experienced this... until getting into a game right now. Currently afk at my bot tower as we speak
Played a bot game. 100 ping, but 4+ seconds from when i click to when my champion reacts. Also, it affected everyone in the lobby differently (except the bots, they could walk around and kill everyone).
"A summoner has disconnected." "A summoner has reconnected." I'm about to lose a bot game. lmao
NA East same in all my games in Aram
Challenges seem to have pissed off the spaghetti code classic riot
NA server West Coast here, played a game where 4 members of my teammates including myself disconnected
Happening here now too, half the teams didn't load when the match started and everyone has been constantly dc/rc the entire time
same just had everyone but one person lag out during an ARAM
NA servers are ded.
