VALORANT, Riot Games’ first foray into the realm of first-person shooters, has been a huge success. The current active player base ranges from Asia-Pacific to Latin America. People can queue up to play a match with only one click thanks to Riot’s global server availability. However, server issues do occur at times. With this in mind, VALO2ASIA.com has created a guide for checking the status of VALORANT server in real-time.
Riot Games is one of few publishers that offers its own system for checking the status the availability of VALORANT services in every region.
- Visit Riot Games Service Status for VALORANT server.
- Riot Games will inform the current status of their services in the Asia-Pacific region. If there is scheduled routine maintenance, it will have a “SCHEDULED” tag. The time shown will match your system’s time zone.
- You can report a problem by heading to Riot Games Support Centre and submitting a ticket. Ticket submissions can take anywhere from a few hours to a day to get responded to.
- If you are lazy, an easy way to check the server status in real-time is by going to @RiotSupport, as well as the official @PlayVALORANT, on Twitter.
What if VALORANT server is not down, but you are still having trouble with the connection?
Most likely, you are experiencing client-side issues. Make sure to check your connection by visiting a website (like www.VALO2ASIA.com), and try playing other games. If the aforementioned steps work, it is likely that you have a connection problem to the Riot Games server. Try troubleshooting your issues:
1. Restart your router and your PC – a classic solution, but sometimes it works as Riot’s anti-cheat engine can interfere with your system.
2. Run Windows Network Diagnostics (Windows) or Wireless Diagnostics (macOS)

a. Hold down your Option key and click the Wi-Fi icon in the status menu at the top of your screen
b. Click Open Wireless Diagnostics
c. Select “Monitor my Wi-Fi Connection” and then click ‘Continue’
d. The system will try to identify any problem and run you through it on how to fix it.
3. If the problem persists, try reinstalling Riot Vanguard.

c. Select “Uninstall a Program” Option
d. Find “Riot Vanguard” and then right-click to choose Uninstall
