  • Games start 4v5 without me, cannot connect to matches, get abandons

    Lately I've been having an issue where I cannot connect to games regardless of server. Sometimes it goes through without any problems, but the majority of the time I get stuck on a loading screen.
    I've tried closing the game and reopening it to try to reconnect, I've tried different servers (USW/USE/EUW), opening the game without any launch options and verifying game cache.
    I end up waiting with a loading screen for a while before going back to the main menu (not being prevented from queuing). It has happened a couple times however that I load in in time to see a dark map, no trees, with everyone marked as disconnected and time set to 88:88. When I manually go back to the main menu, it states under my profile that I am in a match playing against bots.

    However it's happened three times before that the game actually starts without me ever having connected to it and I end up getting an abandon, because I can't connect to it after the game is under way. As you can imagine getting low priority for this is really, really annoying.

    Are there any known fixes/things I can try for this?
