: Just tested my connection again and it seems everything is in order. Check your league clients and a custom game to see if will connect. Looks like all is sorted.
I was connected to a different ISP and it seems that one was one of the lucky ones. Got home psyched to play only to find this out... Problem is not yet fixed.

I am just curious, what number is your ping on euw? Isn't OCE better platform due to lower ping there?
This is exactly what I thought was the problem, we'll just wait then. Won't take too long I believe, as they fairly quickly fix these problems. Thanks for this StrongW0lf. Consensual clown, we get anywhere between 168 and 220 ms, depending on your isp and quality internet. I have tried OCE, thing ping is actually a bit higher there. Note these are the stable amounts if we get ping spikes it will go even higher.

And you're having the same connection problem, spammaster?

: try enabling low spec mode , still trash but a faster trash
The low spec mode didn't help, thanks for trying to help though.

: Yeah EUW client is a total mess for me too, and you are right, the server status actually says nothing useful anymore, oh and don't forget about the useless League + mobile app {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}
Out of curiosity, where are you from? Trying to figure out if the problem is bound to my country.
