There are recent reports from players getting the same error message: “Did not receive a response from the server” on League of Legends. While it can be a server error, there’s a chance that it’s on your end. So our tech team provides this quick guide to help you resolve this issue.
Fix #1: Disable Offline Mode on Your Browser
To avoid log-in issues, you can try disabling the offline mode on your browser. If you’re using the Chrome browser, here’s how to do it:
- Open your Google Chrome.
- Type in “chrome://flags/” on the address bar.
- Click the “Show Saved Copy” button to expand the dropdown menu.
- Select “Disable” and choose “Relaunch Now.”
Fix #2: Disable or Enable Peer-to-Peer Transfer
Another solution is disabling or enabling Peer to Peer transfer on LoL. Make sure that “Enable Peer-to-Peer Transfer” and “Enable” are both deselected.
The steps are simple:
- Start up the LoL launcher.
- Return to the gears icon in the top right of the screen by selecting the “Options” button.
- Keep “Allow Peer to Peer Transfer” unchecked.
- Then, click “Save” to keep this setting.
Fix #3: Use Mobile Data or Another Internet Provider
Lastly, if you still can’t connect to the LoL server, there might be an issue with your internet connection.
If you’re using your smartphone to play, you can try using mobile data as your internet source. On the other hand, PC users can try switching or connecting to another network connection to test the issue.
As with any other issue, prevention is still better than cure. Checking your internet connection before launching the game will help you prevent this issue or LoL PBE error “Unable to Connect to the Server” from occurring.
The League of Legends “Did not receive a response from the server” error can be due to incorrect system or game settings, poor network connection, or a server error.
