Fall Guys was released earlier this week and the game has reached an immense level of popularity in no time.
But being the latest popular game on the block comes with its own problems, of course. Players often find themselves not being able to jump into a game mainly due to server-side errors. These are perfectly normal for a new game during its launch period and most of it should be resolved over the next few weeks.
While you won’t be able to launch the game if the servers are completely down, sometimes you won’t be able to join a game even though you can launch Fall Guys.
What can you do if you’re stuck on the loading screen in Fall Guys?
Fall Guys is a fast-paced game and players join in and out of games in a matter of seconds. Sometimes, your jelly bean can get stuck in a lobby even if you exited adequately. This can cause you to enter a loop in which you can’t join another game.
If your character’s stuck falling and you haven’t been able to find a game for a few minutes, you should exit out of Fall Guys and re-login. Doing this will remove you from any progressing games you’re a part of, which is usually the source of the problem.
If doing this doesn’t seem to fix the error for you, then it may be a good idea to see whether there’s a server-side problem. Check Fall Guys‘ social media accounts since they often keep the players up-to-date with the latest developments regarding the game.
When everything’s in order but you still can’t find a game, it might be time to take more serious measures. Try exiting Steam or logging out of PlayStation Network and sign into both of them before queueing up for a game of Fall Guys.
Resetting your router, PC, and gaming console can also be the last measure against this issue, in addition to changing your DNS to an alternative server. Contact either Steam or Mediatonic support lines if the issue persists and let them know of all the steps you’ve taken to fix the problem by yourself.
More often than not, you should always be fine with a simple relog. This issue is likely to get fixed by the developer in future updates.
U.S. Department of Commerce Announces Sanctions Against TikTok, WeChat
The U.S. Department of Commerce Friday announced prohibitions on transactions relating to mobile apps WeChat and TikTok. The order is an enforcement of President Donald Trump’s executive orders issued in August.
Beginning Sept. 20, The following transactions will be prohibited:
- Any provision of service to distribute or maintain the WeChat or TikTok mobile applications, constituent code, or application updates through an online mobile application store in the U.S.;
- Any provision of services through the WeChat mobile application for the purpose of transferring funds or processing payments within the U.S.
Additional prohibitions for WeChat (Sept, 20) and TikTok (Nov. 12), according to Commerce:
- Any provision of internet hosting services enabling the functioning or optimization of the mobile application in the U.S.
- Any provision of content delivery network services enabling the functioning or optimization of the mobile application in the U.S..
- Any provision directly contracted or arranged internet transit or peering services enabling the function or optimization of the mobile application within the U.S..
- Any utilization of the mobile application’s constituent code, functions, or services in the functioning of software or services developed and/or accessible within the U.S.
“While the threats posed by WeChat and TikTok are not identical, they are similar,” the order reads. “Each collects vast swaths of data from users, including network activity, location data, and browsing and search histories. Each is an active participant in China’s civil-military fusion and is subject to mandatory cooperation with the intelligence services of the CCP. This combination results in the use of WeChat and TikTok creating unacceptable risks to our national security.”
The notices for these actions have been recorded in the Federal Register this morning.

U.S. Government Takes Aim at Riot Games, Epic Games, and Others Tied to Tencent
The U.S. Treasury’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS) has asked gaming companies including Riot Games and Epic Games to provide information on security protocols, according to a Bloomberg report. The CFIUS sent letters to Epic, Riot, “and other game companies” asking them to provide data on security protocols related to user data to the government because of their deep ties with Tencent Holdings.
Valorant and League of Legends developer Riot Games is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tencent Holdings, while the company holds a 40% stake in Fortnite maker Epic Games. Tencent has ownership stakes of varying sizes in video game developers and publishers around the world.
U.S. politicians have taken aim at Tencent’s WeChat and QQ apps, so this latest move is not surprising. The CFIUS investigates acquisitions of U.S. companies by foreign businesses for national security risks.
The Esports Observer laid out how the Trump administration might use the CFIUS to take down TikTok in July, noting the following:
“What if the government began scrutinizing Tencent’s deep connections in the games industry? Tencent holds a fair percentage of Fortnite maker Epic Games; owns League of Legends and Valorant publisher Riot Games; and develops and/or publishes PUBG, PUBG MOBILE, Honor of Kings, and Call of Duty: Mobile. “
The focus of the CFIUS on Tencent-connected video game companies is the latest move against the Chinese conglomerate by U.S. politicians. On Aug. 7, President Trump issued an executive order prohibiting transactions with the popular WeChat app, to take effect 45 days from the date of the order. On Monday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FLA.) sent a letter to Trump urging him to add Tencent’s social media and messaging app QQ to the previous executive order aimed at WeChat. Rubio and other Republican senators are also asking the administration to scrutinize the ByteDance-Oracle deal for the U.S. operations of TikTok.
Vaynerchuk Explains Why He Saw Esports as an Investment Vehicle Years Ago
Gary Vaynerchuk isn’t just a jack-of-all-trades, he’s the king. The serial entrepreneur and five-time New York Times best-selling author with companies spanning the globe has seen his uncanny intuition, guile, and wit lead him to business success in places others feared to go.
And now, he has his sights set on esports.
This week on Conquering Geek Culture, Vaynerchuk describes to podcast host and CEO of The Esports Observer, Chris Hana, his methodology of evaluating where he will strike next. Vaynerchuk gives an immersive and detailed description of some of his tried and proven strategies in regard to where business opportunities may lie and how he is able to jump on them as quickly as he has.
“I’m always listening,” Vaynerchuk says. “And I am very rarely speaking. It’s just I’m speaking so prolifically on the internet and strategically on the volumes of output it seems like I am always talking, yet the reality is that although I might be talking for 30 minutes a day on a podcast like this, but I’m operating 15 hours a day and in that operation does come a lot of listening and observing social networks for consumer insights.”
The self-described lion says that when he gets a taste of something he likes, it’s time to eat–and esports is on the plate. Vaynerchuk tells Hana that he had decided seven years ago that esports would be “one of the biggest genres of sport” for the rest of his life. And with that decision comes a lifelong commitment to exploring the esports business space and where he fits in.
“Five, six, seven years ago I decided that esports would be one of the biggest genres of sport for the rest of my life, based on pattern recognition, based on being good at history,” Vaynerchuk said. “And once I made that decision, five or six years ago, then it became a game of, I always think of myself as an animal, a hunter. Once I decided that I am a lion and I want to eat elk, I’m going to sit in the bushes until the elk makes a mistake.”
For Vaynerchuk, that analogy manifests itself in the form of opportunity in the esports space which he has pounced on and made one of his passions.
Join Hana and Vaynerchuk for this exploratory journey of what he sees in this world of esports and if the business mogul feels he can fuel an investment engine to take him to new heights.
To hear more about what Vanderchuk believes in terms of what’s next for esports and where it may be headed, listen to the complete podcast now on Conquering Geek Culture with Chris Hana.
