Wild Rift Not Working? Here’s What To Do
Here are the potential fixes and troubleshooting tips to help you if Wild Rift is not working at the moment.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is a popular mobile game that’s still getting some awesome new content, but occasionally (like most online games), players face issues related to connections or login – sometimes even after updates. If you can’t play Wild Rift right now, it could be not working due to multiple reasons. Here’s everything you need to check from your end to potentially resolve the problem.
Why is Wild Rift Not Working?
First and foremost, check if LoL: Wild Rift is down right now due to server maintenance or outage. You can do so by heading to downdetector and checking the graph of reports in the last 24 hours. If there’s a spike and the comments also reflect the same, then all you can do is wait until the servers are back up online.
Can’t Log in to Wild Rift
If restarting the app doesn’t work and your internet connection is not the problem, it could be an issue from the game’s end. Head over to the Riot Games status page to know if there are any current messages related to recent issues.
Here’s an example from December 12, 2023.
Stuck on Loading Screen
Restart your device and see if any technical issues (such as this one) fix themselves. Also, check if your app is up-to-date because there’s a chance this bug has already been fixed in a recent update.
Connection Timed Out
For some, signing out and signing back in worked out. If not, this could be an error from the developers’ end, so wait for a patch or hotfix that will allow you to play the game without any hiccups. Before uninstalling, make sure to check social media (r/wildrift) for comments by other players and if they are experiencing the same errors, hold on until an update arrives.
Wild Rift Troubleshooting Tips
In general, here are some more troubleshooting tips to keep in mind:
Give the App the Required Permissions
If you have declined access to the storage pop-up that appears during an update or after you launch the app, you can go to your phone’s Settings > Apps > find Wild Rift > Permissions > give the Storage permission.
Clear the App Cache
Go to your Android phone’s Settings > Apps and Notifications > Tap on Wild Rift > select Storage & Cache and then, Clear Cache.
Clear App Data
Keep in mind that you have to upgrade your Google Play Account to a Riot Account to ensure that your content and save progress are not permanently lost. If it’s a non-Riot account, you won’t get your progress back and your lost data won’t be recovered.
How to upgrade to a Riot Account?
If you’ve already logged into your device-based account, go to the Game Settings and you should see an option to create a Riot account. Once you have linked your device-based account and Riot account, whenever you sign in via Google Play or the Game Center, it will be the Riot account that will be used.
Once you have done that, you can clear your app data if you wish.
- Open your Phone’s Settings.
- Tap Apps & Notifications.
- Tap on Wild Rift. If you don’t see it, tap on See All Apps.
- Tap Storage & Cache, and then tap Clear Storage or Clear Data.
Uninstalling the App
Remember that any saved data in the app will be gone if you have not upgraded to a Riot account. So, switch to a Riot account before uninstalling a Riot game.
Wild Rift Audio Not Working?
- In case the sound isn’t working properly, first, check your media volume and whether the phone is currently set to silent or not.
- Make sure that the Audio is turned on in the App settings.
- Check if another music player app is causing the sound for Wild Rift to be drowned out. For example, apps like Google Play Music and SoundCloud can pause or mute the sound of other apps whenever they’re playing a song.
If nothing works out, but Wild Rift is not working only for you, submit a ticket, and support will address the issue.
