Valorant players frustrated after servers crash
Problems began for players across the globe a couple of days ago
The last couple of days have been overly frustrating for Valorant players who experienced all kinds of connection problems, with some of them not being able to log in at all. There was a definite server crash but, on top of that, Riot Games accidentally – or so it seemed – leaked its next operator’s abilities; shortly after, Valorant players were abruptly disconnected from their games.
Riot admitted the disconnection problems in the Latin American region, which was posted at the publisher site at 6:38 PM CT.
“We are aware of a problem causing players to disconnect from their games and experiencing high latency. We are investigating the problem,” wrote Riot. Besides the disconnections, some players are claiming that they are still unable to log back into their accounts. Everything started on July 26, but yesterday, the game’s official Twitter account recognized the server disconnection issues that extended all throughout the North American, Latin American and Brazilian regions. At least in response to the login issues some players experienced, Rio updated its status site with a notice about the “Login Issues” that were marked as critical.
“We’re aware of service outages affecting games of VALORANT (among other things). We’re working with partners to resolve as soon as possible,” wrote the game’s account in a tweet. Regardless of the explanations, nobody wants to be disconnected from their game, and this frustrating situation caused a lot of players to vent on Twitter.
Apparently, Riot Games was not the only company affected by the server problems. Discord, the platform for gaming messaging, was under the spotlight yesterday because of the same problems. “Users are currently having trouble disconnecting to Discord due to an upstream internet issue. We’ve got all engineers on deck investigating the issue,” Discord tweeted.
