Before you take your computer and whip it out the window or punch your modem, take a deep breath and read this article. Time to stay calm... deep breaths. Alright so here is why League of Legends isn't working right now: AWS is down. 

What is AWS? 

AWS stands for Amazon Web Services, and while you think Bezos has made a fortune off you buying stuff off his website, then you're only partially right. The big bucks for Amazon come from their web services. 

Basically, Amazon provides servers for games, websites and companies all around the world and well right now those server spaces aren't connecting and working. At least right now while writing this article they aren't working, but you can always check the status of your favorite games right here on downdetector
