Guide for Rocket League – not connecting to servers.
1: Verify game files on steam.
First of all before the other solutions, try to verify your game files on steam.
- Go to Library on your steam. Right-click on Rocket League and press “Properties”.
- Go to “Local Files” tab on the screen that opened after you pressed on “Properties”
- Press on “Verify Integrity of game files…”
Wait for the verify to load and finish, once it’s finished try running the game.
If didn’t work, go to the other solution.
2: Sync your computer’s clock to automated.
Sometimes when your PC isn’t synced with an automated clock/hour, it makes issues with connections to sites/games and servers. Follow the steps to sync it.
- First go to your computer’s settings then click on “Time & Language”.
- Once you entered Time & Language, head to “Date & Time”.
- Then mark “Set time zone automatically”.
- After you marked the option above, click “Sync now” at Synchronize your clock”
Once you have done all the steps, restart your steam and try to run Rocket League, and check if it is connecting to servers, if not. Move to the next solution.
3: Rester your modem/router.
Most of the time, lagging/connecting issues are because of your modem/router not connecting/not pinging the server. So I’d suggest you to restart your modem/router.
- Take your power supply cable out of your modem/router.
- Wait a few seconds or one minute, then connect your power supply back to your router/modem.
- After your modem/router fully loaded and restarted, restart your PC and try to connect to Rocket League servers.
If didn’t work out, let’s move to the next solution.
4: Delete Rocket League cache file.
Deleting cache files might improve your lagging/connection with Rocket League. (I personally did that once and worked for me). Follow the steps.
- Go to your Documents on your computer.
- Click on “My Games” folder in your documents folder.
- Once you entered “My Games” folder, head to “Rocket League”.
- Then go to “TAGame” folder and look for “Cache”, right-click on Cache and delete it.
Once you delete the cache folder, restart your STEAM and try to run Rocket League again.
If didn’t work out, continue with the guide.
5: Connect your computer/laptop via wired connection.
Most of the time when you’re playing games with WI-FI, it will lag or give you less download/upload and high ping, and connection issues. So I would suggest you to play Rocket League in wired connection and not wi-fi. It’s a small step that might help you.
Move to the next solution if didn’t work.
6: Disconnect other devices from your network.
When connecting too many devices to your internet, it might lag and use too much “power” of your internet and will lag other connections, so I suggest disconnecting a few of your other devices, for example, other phones, computers, consoles.
7: Try to use Google Public DNS.
Google Public DNS helps most of the time with connections between sites/servers and games, follow the steps to do it. (No worries you can always remove it.)
- Go to your Control Panel from the Start menu of your computer.
- Click on “Network and sharing center”.
- Then “Change adapter settings”.
- Find your active adapter network, right-click on it and choose “Properties”.
- Once you have chosen properties, find and choose “Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)”.
- At the second box mark “Use the following DNS server addresses” and fill “Preferred DNS server” with 126.96.36.199.
- Then fill in “Alternate DNS server” with 188.8.131.52. Click ok and both screens.
After you’ve done all the steps, restart your computer and try to play Rocket League.
8: Restart your Internet options.
Restarting your internet options might fix the issues with connections, try it out. Follow the steps.
- Head to Control Panel on your computer.
- Then find Internet options, enter it and go to “Advanced”.
- You will see “Reset” options on advanced, reset it and then apply.
- Now go back to Advanced internet options and click “Restore advanced settings”.
- Restart your computer.
After you have done all these steps and restarted your computer, try running Rocket League.
9: Try quick CMD command.
Run your CMD as administrator.
- Search for CMD at windows, right-click on CMD, and “Run and administrator.”
- After you run the CMD as an administrator, run this command.
- ipconfig /flushdns
Restart your computer then try to run Rocket League and check if it connecting to servers.
