League of Legends: Wild Rift has had a rocky start, to say the least, as players are having wide problems when trying to log in through their Riot accounts. Though there are no official fixes, these are a few things to try and get the game running again.

Riot Login Failed Wild Rift: How to Fix

Login issues have plagued the Wild Rift servers for some time now and some are even facing issues with their Riot accounts when trying to sign into the game. Although Riot Games has not made any official announcements on how to fix this issue, especially with Riot accounts, it should be on the top of their priorities at the very least.

Depending on what type of phone that a player is using there are some general tips to try in order to help alleviate the login issues:

  • Ensure that the connection between the phone and the internet, whether through Wi-Fi or otherwise, is constant and uninhibited.
  • Close all other background applications on the phone before trying to log in again.
  • Restart the mobile device and try opening it after restarting.
  • Ensure that there are no battery-saving applications or features that are enabled on the device.
  • Clear the cache of data from Wild Rift

A common community fix to this issue is exclusively for those who have a virtual private network, or VPN, services. However, these steps may not necessarily work for everyone:

  1. Enable the VPN service.
  2. Set the location of the country to anything aside from the country the player is playing in.
  3. Open Wild Rift and log in.
  4. After a successful login, either disconnect from the spoofed location or disconnect from the VPN entirely.

Alternatively, people have been suggesting that setting their VPN to spoof a location in the Philippines and following the above steps have worked for them. As to whether or not it does work has varying success from device to device.

Wild Rift's upcoming Patch 2.4 will hit servers on July 28, and if the developers are planning to address the login issues is currently unknown.
