The “Chat Room Not Connected” error often tends to come back to the game with new updates/patches and is essentially something most people ignore but it may be an implication to a greater problem.
As the name suggests, the “Chat Room Not Connected” prevents users from using the chat room to communicate; though most players can get by without paying much attention, errors like this can indicate a connection error between them and the Riot servers.
Most connection errors can be tackled domestically that would naturally reduce the risk of major connectivity failures going forward. Players with any kind of network problems might try their hand at these remedies.
How To Fix The Chat Room Not Connected Error In VALORANT
The age-old fix of most software, a simple restart of the game may fix any temporary issue that may just have popped up just as you worked your way to the game. Restarting the game/pc will essentially cut off all ties between the local client and the game servers ensuring the reestablishment of connectivity. A quick restart will fix the issue on rare occasions so it’s worth a try.
Yet again, another widely accepted domestic remedy of network problems. That little box that sits on the desk may get too stressed at times to deliver your packets thereby causing a wide array of network failures across all your devices. Pulling the plug and keeping it off for 30 secs until the residual charge has left it and plugging it back in may do the trick. Though it is strongly advised that players should use wired internet to ensure the best possible connection.
Run VALORANT as administrator
Running Valorant as an administrator would give complete control of the layers of network in the local client which may help the game bypass any unnecessary security settings. Windows firewall often blocks harmless software that it deems of being potentially harmful, hence running the game with admin access solves most Windows security-related problems.
Change your DNS address
The default DNS may fail to deliver at times which may often slow down your internet speeds or shut it down altogether. Using the Google or Cloudflare DNS can never go wrong, arguably two of the most popular DNSs, Google and Cloudflare are very potent with it like any of their other services and they are more reliable than whatever your ISP has suggested at any given day. Changing the DNS to either one of the two can help with the connectivity issues.
Check for sever issues
Riot is punctual with their server maintenance to prevent any avoidable problems which may well be the reason you are not able to connect. Look for any news on maintenance on their socials and if everything checks out, head over to the Down Detector to check for a faulty server which Riot will indefinitely fix.
