League of Legends' servers are down for more than three hours now and counting, according to players on Twitter.
League of Legends Not Opening
Riot Games and League of Legends are having a major downtime on its servers and players are complaining that they cannot log-in to the client, much less play the game. Players who have logged in to the game now have the "spinning circle" icon that either indicates loss of internet connection or shut down servers.
However, several gamers are already complaining about the inability to enter and play the game, highly suggesting that League of Legends' servers are experiencing a shutdown or crash. Currently, Riot Games or Riot Support has not yet issued any news about the server shutdown.

League of Legends: Patch 10.22
Speculations include that the shutting down of servers may be linked to the upcoming minor update for the League of Legends. Patch 10.22 will be released on the North American region by October 28, more than a week from now. This update is a minor patch for the League, as part of the routine improvements and bug fixes of the game. According to Riot's Server Status website, there are no recent issues in the developer's servers that we reported or detected by the systems. However, when going down on more specific games, toggling League of Legends will show "Account Transfers Disabled," with Riot fixing up the problems in the game. This notification and report were issued last September 15 but is still an on-going case for Riot Games. Patch 10.22's connection may be a hint that League of Legends is preparing its servers for the rework of certain bug fixes and champions such as Zed, LeBlanc, Nasus, and more.
Patch 10.22-Champion Adjustments
According to Riot employee, Mark Yetter (@MarkYetter), the League is focusing on major buffs and nerfs for the game's favorite champions. The Riot Games employee is also a popular insider for all news about League of Legends. Apart from bug fixes, the League is seeing major champion adjustments for fan favorites such as Annie, Ashe, and Jinx. Patch 10.22 will be big for all ranged gamers, as mentioned by Yetter. See the full list of Champion Nerfs and Buffs for Patch 10.22 on the League below: Nerfs:

League Server Down: In Prep for New Patch?
Riot Games and other developers are usually shutting down servers temporarily when new updates or patches are coming. However, League of Legends' nearest scheduled patch is more than eight days away. October 28 is the schedule for the next patch that will bring the newest line of Champions that will have adjustments, according to Yetter and Riot. The servers for League of Legends' North American region shut down is another thing up in Riot's sleeves but is not yet revealed by the game's developer.
