If you have been trying to play the new funny battle royal game Fall Guys, you may see this message getting stuck in the screen for so long: “Looking for players” or “Looking for more players”.

This problem is experienced by many players who are trying to play and join the battle royal with other 59 players, but somehow get stuck and doesn’t show any error message about the problem.

Fall Guys “Looking for players” or “Looking for more players” possible causes

While you have no idea what causes it to get stuck for long like this, there are some possible causes that we can define.

Bad and slow internet connection

If you have a relatively slow internet connection (download and upload), you may experience this problem. Getting stuck like this is mostly caused by your internet connection, with the addition of the server overload because there are too many players in it (and other possible causes mention here), thus leaving players with the slowest connection stuck on “Looking for players” message.

Server overload

Therefore, if you experience this, you may have to be patient and do our suggestion that may fix the problem. It’s not so much, but at least they’re honest advice (I also play the game with a slow connection which is around 5MBps).
