There’s only a week left to climb the ranked ladder and achieve that coveted League of Legends rank you’ve been aiming for all season. But European players might have to put that dream on hold for a bit.

EU West players are complaining of slow servers and client issues today. To counteract the problem, League devs have temporarily disabled ranked queues while they investigate the issue, according to the Riot Games’ Support Twitter account.

There are several reports of League’s client freezing or blacking out completely, icing players out from lobbies.

Players who had their lobbies or games interrupted were rewarded “loss forgiveness,” while winners of the matches receive the infamously unpopular nine LP.

Riot has promised that the support team is working its magic to try to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

“We’re working as fast as we can to get the games back up,” Riot said. “Hold tight and we appreciate the patience.”

Fans eager to jump into ranked action can check League’s server status, which will be updated as soon as it’s back up.
