League of Legends’ servers have been notorious for crashing due to different issues in the past. Wild Rift likely won’t be an exception to this, either. The servers for the mobile version of League will probably go down occasionally due to unforeseen circumstances.
Riot Games has learned from its mistakes in the past and made it much easier to tell if the issue is on the developer’s end or is something related to your setup. Now, you can easily check the company’s website or social media to see if only you’re affected or the entire Riot infrastructure is having issues.
Here’s how to check the server status for Wild Rift.
The first thing you’ll want to do if you’re experiencing any issues connecting to the Wild Rift server is to go to Riot’s official website. Here, you’ll see the latest messages regarding recent events or reports happening in all of Riot’s games. If there’s no message and you’re still having issues, go to the Wild Rift section. Once there, choose your region and language.
If everything is working correctly, the message should say, “No recent issues or events to report.” In this case, there were some login issues and Riot said it’s working on a fix.
But if you don’t see any message in the above steps and are still having issues, check Riot’s social media pages since the company posts messages frequently there to ensure everyone is aware of any problems.
If you’re out of luck there as well, then create a support ticket and Riot will investigate your issue.
League of Legends: Wild Rift’s open beta is now available for all players in Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand.
Yesterday, Wild Rift’s official Twitter account tweeted a message to mark the occasion. “This is one of the biggest milestones we’ve hit so far, and we’re excited to continue developing Wild Rift with all of you throughout the open beta,” Riot said.
Wild Rift was announced in October 2019 for Android, iOS, and consoles. The game is similar to League on PC with some key differences to make it optimized for mobile. The Summoner’s Rift map is smaller in Wild Rift since Riot wants to keep match times around 15 minutes. While Wild Rift’s champion pool is similar to PC, many of the champs have different abilities and mechanics to work better on the joystick control scheme.
Riot previously said it plans to release the mobile version by the end of 2020 with the console launch set for later in the future. The game has been delayed, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’ll be coming to Europe, Middle East, North Africa, Oceania, Russia, Taiwan, Turkey, and Vietnam in December. For North America, South America, and India, Riot plans to release the game in the spring of 2021.
