League of Legends players will unfortunately have to wait to play any games today, as a sudden League of Legends RADS error has kept the game from being able to launch. However, it may not be your own computer that’s the problem.

When the issue was first brought to the internet’s attention on Reddit two hours ago, a number of players immediately went through various ways to try and get the game to run again. While many of them were successful, Riot Games, the developers of League of Legends, have put out a statement of their own.

“We are currently seeing issues with DNS resolution to l3cdn.riotgames.com which would result in this error showing – right now I would hold off on further troubleshooting as this issue may not lie on your end. We’re currently in contact with our CDN provider for further information, and will be working towards resolution ASAP.”

Whatever the cause was, it looks like the League of Legends RADS error has taken down League of Legends for most people for the foreseeable future. According to a quick Google search, this isn’t the first time this error has happened either.

Numerous other incidents about a League of Legends RADS error have been popping up from time to time ever since at least 2011. You would think that by this point Riot Games would know how to fix these, unless each error is different.

Plus, if it’s on Riot’s end after all, them telling you to sit and wait until they’ve fixed it is a good idea, considering that if you make a wrong move troubleshooting you might make the situation on your end worse than it was to begin with.

In the meantime, sorry League players. You’ll have to wait until Riot fixes everything before you can play today.
