If you receive a matchmaking error message, then there are a few things you can do;
- Check the server downtime/maintenance schedule – If you’re receiving a matchmaking error, then it could be due to a scheduled maintenance or downtime on behalf of the developers. In which case you should just exit the game, and wait, it should be active again within the next couple of hours or so. I would also suggest following the game’s official page and social media accounts. This is typically where they would post to let you know when the servers are offline.
- Check your internet connection – This one might seem silly but nevertheless important. If the developers haven’t announced a scheduled maintenance or downtime, then there could be an issue with your connection. It’s very easy for errors such as this to pop up if you’ve got a shaky or unstable internet connection.
- Refresh, restart or reinstall Fall Guys – Lastly, If there’s no maintenance scheduled, and your internet connection is solid, then you can always try to refresh, restart or even reinstall Fall Guys. Obviously, to completely reinstall the game should be viewed as a last resort. First, you should try to restart or refresh the game on your system a few times, sometimes simply rebooting it can be enough to fix the matchmaking error. Although, if you absolutely must, then you can try reinstalling the whole game.
