Valorant Error – Chat Room Not Connected

The ‘Chat Room Not Connected’ error message is one that appears frequently in Valorant. Many players will encounter it if they play Valorant enough. But what does it mean and why won’t it go away?

Well, there’s nothing official from Riot Games regarding the issue. But some users online have reported that the error message is linked to connectivity issues. This means that the problem could be occurring from the official Riot Games servers, or you may have a connection issue on your end.

How To Fix Valorant Error

There are a few different way that you can attempt to fix the ‘Chat Room Not Connected’ error message in Valorant. Unfortunately though, none of these fixes are 100% reliable as they do not come officially from Riot Games themselves.

We advise trying the below fixes, but if the problem persists you can contact Valorant Support to open a ticket regarding the issue.

Restart/Reinstall Valorant

Although this may seem like the most obvious option to some, it has been reported that simply logging out of Valorant and back in has fixed the connectivity issue. This may not work, but it’s definitely the first step you want to take.

If your internet connection is quick enough, deleting and reinstalling Valorant may also help.

Update/Restart Your WiFi Router

Considering the error message is related to connectivity, assuming the servers are not down on Riot Games’ end, you may need to update or restart your router.

Restarting your WiFi Router can often fix certain internet connectivity issues and should always be one of your first troubleshooting steps when attempting to fix anything related to connectivity.

Updating the firmware for your router may also be required, head to your ISP website to find out more on doing this.

Run As Administrator

Some users have reported that running Valorant as an administrator has solved the error message in-game. To do this, simply right click on Valorant and select ‘Run As Administrator, then select ‘Yes’ when prompted.

Possible Suspension

Your Valorant account may have been suspended from chatting in-game and this may be the reason for the error message ‘Chat Room Not Connected’. If you think this may be the case, you will need to contact Valorant Support to find out more.

Wait It Out

This isn’t exactly a solution, but it’s important to remember that this error message may mean that Riot Games are having server issues. If this is the case, there’s nothing you can do apart from waiting until the issues are resolved.

You can always check the server status of Valorant at their official website.

Remember, none of these are official fixes from Riot Games. Should the error keep persisting, we advise you to contact Valorant Support about the error. Or, check the troubleshooting section of their website.
