Server Issues After January 10 Upgrade

At the time of writing, Central USA is the region that is doing the worst, but at various points, several other regions have also received the “slow” label. The main problem is returning to the lobby once each game is over. Also, Legend’s team has been wiped, despite other players’ complaints about being unable to connect to the servers at all.

It has been confirmed by numerous users that leaving a lobby necessitates a complete game shutdown and “gambling” on a successful connection. As one player put it, “I have to wait roughly 20 seconds just to see this. It says connecting to the servers any time I try to exit (once I die/squad dies).”

Another user said that after a 15-minute wait in line. They were able to get into a game before being disconnected just before the first ring closed. But they also had some difficulty getting back in.

Although Respawn Entertainment has yet to comment on the server issues, players are hoping for a fix to be released soon. Some players are unable to connect to the servers at all, while others are experiencing difficulty returning to the lobby after a game or being wiped. The region that is most affected at the moment is Central USA, but players from other regions are also reporting problems. We will continue to update this page with any information as it becomes available.
