League of Legends – Fix for cannot connect to PVP.NET Oceania region

Got talked into playing LoL by nephew.. went through the process of downloading, creating the account (on the Oceania server), downloaded and installed the client.. upon the first login, encountered certificate errors that seems to first authenticate me through the login, but then pops up a connect to PVP.NET error. The game client then closes. Checked firewall, ports, everything is fine.

Played with internet explorer settings, tried manually adding the certificates.. in the end, this is what worked. Interestingly, I could log into NA (North American) region perfectly fine, just not the Oceania region.

It turns out the DigiCert SSL certificates were invalid. To fix this, go to:


Step 1. Scroll down the page to Intermediate Certificates

Step 2. Download 2 Files and save to your desktop:
— DigiCert Secure Server CA
— DigiCert High Assurance CA-3

Step 3. Double click on both of them, one at a time. Doesn’t matter which one you do first.

Windows should pop up a box giving you the option to install the certificates. On OSX, it should open ‘Keychain’

Step 4.Follow the steps and install both certificates.

When done with both, log into LoL again and hopefully everything works!

Absolute champion, played around with so many settings (as you probably did), with windows time, internet explorer settings, installing certificates etc… Couldn’t fix it until I find your blog, much love my friend :).

does this only work for the oceania server???

I think these certificates were used by the Oceania servers only. However, the same method could work for the European servers if you’re having similar problem..
