Fix Fall Guys Problem Finding Match issue
If you see Problem Finding Match message in Fall Guys, try the following solutions.
- Restart your computer
- Restart your Router
- Check Server Status
- Check your Internet Connection
- Try Google DNS
Let us talk about them in detail.
1] Restart your computer
Let us start by restarting your computer. In some cases, just restarting the system has worked as it flushes out any glitch that may stop the game from finding a match. So, go ahead and shut down your system. Now, reopen it and see if the issue persists. Hopefully, this will do the job for you.
2] Restart your Router
If restarting the system doesn’t work, you can try restarting the router as well. Since the issue is related to your network, there is a high chance that restarting the network device will do the trick. Follow the prescribed steps to restart your router.
- Turn off your router.
- Detach all the cables and wait for a minute.
- Attach all the cables and turn the device back on.
Finally, connect your computer to the network, open the game and see if the issue persists.
3] Check Server Status
Next up, let us check the server status of Fall Guys to make sure that it is not down. You can go to twitter.com to know the status of the server or join the Discord server of Fall Guys to know how to stay connected with the team and the community. Another option is to use a free down detector to know the server status of any website or online service. In case the server is down, you need to wait for the issue to be resolved as there is nothing you can do about it. Once the issue is resolved, go back to your game and try playing. Hopefully, this will do the job for you.
4] Check your Internet Connection
As you may already know, Fall Guys need a good Internet connection to run. That is why it is recommended to play the game with an ethernet connection. Now, we are not asking you to have an ethernet connection, what we are saying is to use a free Internet Speed tester to know your bandwidth. In case, the bandwidth is low, restart your router (check the second solution) and if that doesn’t work, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and ask them to resolve the issue.
In case, yours is the only device with low bandwidth, check this post on how to fix the slow Internet speed.
5] Try Google Public DNS
Using Google Public DNS as opposed to the default DNS settings on a Windows laptop can help in fixing a lot of network issues. We are going to switch to Google DNS and see if it helps. It’s quite easy to do the same, just follow the prescribed steps and you will be good to go.
- Open Control Panel.
- Click on Network and Internet.
- Go to Network & Sharing Center and then click on Change adapter settings.
- Right-click on WiFi on Ethernet (the one you are using) and select Properties.
- Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/TPv4).
- Preferred DNS server: 188.8.131.52 and Alternate DNS server: 184.108.40.206
If you use IPv6, set the following.
- Preferred DNS server: 2001:4860:4860::8888
- Alternate DNS server: 2001:4860:4860::8844
Now, open your game and see if it connects and find a match for you. Hopefully, this will do the job for you.
We hope that these solutions will do the job for you.
