The server doesn't work? LOL!

One of the most entertaining elements of League of Legends is the Ranked mode. Your skills will be tested here as you play with the best players in the world. And not just that, each win will put you higher on the ladder, showing everybody how good of a player you are. That's great until some technical problem gets in the way. When that happens, you'd want to know why is LoL Ranked disabled. Here's how to check the LoL server status so you can continue your ladder campaign as soon as possible.

Why can't I play LoL Ranked?

As League of Legends is a globally popular game with millions of players, many things can go wrong. The most common reason why LoL Ranked mode is disabled is a server problem. Sometimes it can be a technical issue, usually when a new update is implemented. There's also a human error, like when Riot Games was forced to disable ranked mode after they accidently reverted LoL to an older version. In those cases, your LoL username and password are worthless until the server issue is resolved.
