I am unable to connect to the game after the Champion select, the game acts as though it is about to load, but never gets to the screen where I can see the champions on both sides. the game shows the screen stating "In Game: Game is still in progress..." If I close my Game Client and reopen it, it opens to the "Game Abandoned: Reconnect" screen, and when I click "Reconnect," the game still doesn't launch.
Steps to Reproduce:
Logged into the Game Client
Clicked on "Play Game."
Joined the queue for a 5v5 Summoners Rift game
Entered Champion Selection Page
Selected Champion "Vladimir"
Game never loaded
At this moment, I am in the process of a re-install to see if that fixes the problem.
Edit (11/19/11): Re-install fixes the problem, but the re-install process takes longer than the game will to finish (for both times I've had this issue). The issue can also occur on Vs-AI games.
This issue also apparently causes your First Win of the Day bonus to reset. I am uncertain if it is because the rest of my team won without me or not.
Edit (11/20/11): Re-install apparently only sometimes fixes the problem and it occurs on Windows XP/7 (unknown if occurs on Vista).
Edit (11/21/11): Issue appears to be occurring regardless to graphics card as 5+ different graphics cards have had the same issue.
Also, another reported fix is to close the game client with the task manager.
Edit (11/25/11): Issue appears to be the non-volatile version of another issue which can be found here:
Still keeping this as a separate thread as the issues are similar enough to probably be linked, but still dissimilar.
