For some reason, the game is not connecting properly. My profile icon is missing and the play button is greyed out stating "We aren't able to create a lobby right now. Please exit the client and re-open it to try again." And I have done this roughly 8 times now. Even uninstalled and reinstalled League entirely and it did not fix anything. An update was done just before I played the game earlier and since then I have had this issue. Was playing perfectly Last night before whatever updated this morning. Please can someone assist me.
