- Are you facing a Valorant server outage?
- Well, you are not alone with that error 43.
- Riot servers are having issues.
Valorant players from all over are facing login, matchmaking, chat, and gameplay issues due to server outage. It started popping on August 30, 2020, and seems to be prevalent till the time of writing of this post. The issue is not exclusive to Valorant or just one region. Other Riot's titles like League of Legends are also getting disconnected mid-match and facing similar issues across all regions.
Although the Valorant Service Status page marks both the login and chat issues to be closed, it has not been fixed yet. Players are still having trouble connecting to the Riot's servers. The Downdetector website still reports several issues, the number seems to be getting lowered overtime, however.
Affected by the Valorant server outage?
It is likely that you might be or will have trouble with the game. You might not be able to connect to the server altogether or face minor issues like low server FPS. You might even be disconnected while mid-match. Well, in that case, you can't really do anything except for trying again. Since there was no scheduled server maintenance, the reason for the outage has not been clear, neither Riot have said anything.
So let's wait for the issue to be fixed and hope for the best. And remember, you are not alone!
