The long list of apps includes all of Riot Games’ titles like League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra, Valorant and TFT. Provider like Discord and StreamLabs are also down, as they too use the CloudFlare Internet services.
Riot Ziegler, the game director for Valorant, has even taken to Twitter to discuss the issues that the servers have actually been facing due to the fact that of CloudFlare.
” There are some significant web problems happening worldwide at the minute causing disconnects and game concerns in VALORANT (and other video games). We’re working with our partners to get the issue solved as fast as possible.”
A lot of the Riot player base, Discord users and people who utilize services like DoorDash, Postmates and Patreon were of the viewpoint that these servers being down was a result of a hack.
Nevertheless, later 17th July, CloudFlare added an update on its website where it went on the say that the concern was not a cyber attack. It’s services decreased because, “a router on [its] global foundation revealed bad paths and triggered some parts of the network to not be readily available.”
And moving forward, it will be “monitoring systems for stability now.”
Since the closed beta, Valorant has had a history of bugs and error codes, and players are typically confused if the fault is at their end each time they face a server downtime in Valorant.
