Please make sure that there are no known service outages that may be impacting your ability to play Rocket League online. Check the Xbox Live Status for potential outages or limited access provided.
First of all you should double check that you’re playing in the correct region. That will both improve your ping and make sure that the data doesn’t have to travel so far and get lost on the way.
Because of agreements with our online service provider, there are certain regions that are unable to connect to Rocket League’s online multiplayer component. As a result, server access is restricted in the following regions:
- North Korea
A step that solves the majority of issues with disconnections (Also helps if you are experiencing lag!) is to simply disconnect your modem/router from the power. Leave them off for 1 minute and then plug them back on.
Make sure that your Xbox One is on a wired connection. WiFi is obviously a more comfortable solution, but connecting with a wire is much more reliable and is therefore the better option of the two as WiFi can receive interference from many sources.
Remember that streaming videos and movies, or downloading files while gaming at the same time can have a negative impact on your gaming experience, even if it's other devices using your connection. This can range from lag & rubberbanding issues to getting disconnected from matches.
Please note that opening ports may pose a security threat to your network and should be done at your own discretion. Port forwarding will not improve the quality of your connection to the game servers, it will only help in cases where you are unable to contact the Rocket League servers while you are online.
- Open your web browser (ex. Chrome, Firefox, etc.)
- Type your Default Gateway into the URL Address bar to access the router
- Here you may be prompted with a popup window requesting your username and password
- Once you have entered your router’s configuration page, look for a page called Port Forwarding
- Once you’ve reached the correct page, you can add entries for Rocket League using the following port ranges:
- 7000 – 9000 UDP (For Game Servers)
- 80 TCP (HTTP Connections)
- 443 TCP (HTTPS Connections)
This is an optional step, but worth trying. You can configure your network to use Google Public DNS, check out the instructions here.
