My friend & I are having issues logging into the game for the last week or so where the client does not move past the authentication screen and shows that there is some issue in the server, but the connection as well as the service status are fine.
***Welcome to Technical Support!***
Need tech support? Look no further! Our technical wizards such as the [Wrenchmen](http://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/help-support-en/EXtUdIss-the-wrenchmen-helping-solve-issues-one-post-at-a-time) and other community members, are here to help!
We've got the handy [Wrenchmen's Toolbox](https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/help-support-en/hlYp1Qn8-common-fixes-answers-the-wrenchmens-toolbox) with a plethora of guides and fixes that may already answer your question, but if not - post away!
Keep in mind the boards are for player interactions - if you need further support, or it requires Riot investigation, you’ll still want to [Submit a Ticket](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) to Player Support the old-fashioned way:
- Billing issues
- Suspension appeals
- [Account Recovery](https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/help-support-en/hPvMFBIN-how-to-recover-your-account-keep-it-safe)
- Advanced tech support (no answer on boards? No problem!)
