June 10th EUW Server ProblemsDuring a scheduled downtime for hardware maintenance, the EUW server experienced severe problems that left it down for the better part of a day.
While the server is now up and holding, here's Riot tmx, live services manager for Europe, with more info on the problems:
"I wanted to keep you all informed of how things are going and to give a summary of the whole situation.
The hardware maintenance started at 3am GMT+1 and went relatively smoothly until we re-opened the platform at 11am. At this time you guys and us noticed that there was data missing. In order to find the cause of the problem and fix it, we had to take the platform back down at 12pm GMT+1. After a full investigation we found that 3 days of match history, LP gains/losses, league changes and purchases were missing. As you can imagine, this is quite a lot of information so unfortunately it will be a number of hours before we can repopulate, test and bring the platform back live.
However, once the platform is back online there will likely be a very large login queue, which means impaired experience for what’s likely to be another hour or more. If you want more technical details on the problem, please check Terablo’s update in the official Service Status post here. We will continue to update the service status thread as we progress.
We know this sucks guys and we’re working our hardest to fix this for you as soon as possible. The team have been working constantly on this since the maintenance started and won’t stop until it’s done.
18.40 GMT+1 update: Players, to keep you fully informed, it seems unlikely we will be able to open EUW tonight.
02.57 GMT+1 update: The platform is back up and you can now log in. Be aware of a large login queue while we filter players back into the platform. Some Ranked matches may not appear in your Match History, but the data from these games has been taken into account (i.e. LP/IP/XP changes). Transfers to and from EUW are currently disabled. Ranked queues are also disabled, and estimated time of restoring ranked play is the morning of Wednesday 11th June; we are working to restore this as quickly as possible. Any IP and XP boosts have been extended by 48 hours. Please contact Player Support if you see any discrepancies in your game statistics."
