Players can't connect to the game after champ select and it ends up causing a surrender vote after taking 5-10 mins to get into the game (depending on dodges). So I end up playing for just as long as it takes to get into the game, and this feels really bad. The connecting issue happened to me about a week ago but I myself haven't had any problems since then, but it seems many players are now having this issue.
Basically the issue is: After champ select the full screen client opens up to start loading, but the screen stays black and says something along the lines of "failed to connect, please check your internet and try again." Whether you then press cancel and reconnect or just retry you will get the same black screen again.
