Fixing the Network Issues/Glitches/Errors

Basic Clean Up

This is the order that I followed that helped me

Close all other applications, Easy Anti-Cheat sometimes will read other apps and freak out

In your antivirus, I added an exception for the install folder (under steam common installs)

Updated Windows (Sometimes this makes stuff worse)

Updated my Video Card Drivers (Radeon/GForce Drivers... make sure you only go to a stable version, the latest is not always the best)

Changed my DNS Settings to Google (also ehhhh - I change them back when I am done to my normal DNS Server when I am done)


Sometimes installs don't go the way they need too. You can right click the game in the main library and go to preferences/options and you can scan the game for corruptions/integrity issues. This usually doesn't fix anything at all but worth a shot.

Easy Anti Cheat Issues

If none of this is working then more than likely your issue is due to EAC (Easy-Anti Cheat) issues

You can go to Control Panel > Programs > Easy Anti Cheat > You will need to Repair/Reinstall EAC.

Update your Microsoft C++ Redistributable by searching for it online

Network Settings Reset

Sometimes the network is the culprit, you may need to reset your network settings (Open a Command Prompt - you have to open it as administrator)

Completing these steps will clear your DNS, IP Address, and Reset your WinSock which is the TCP/IP Stack for your connection. You will have to reboot after this.

ipconfig /flushdns ipconfig /registerdns ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew netsh winsock reset

Windows Operating System Issues

Lastly, if you have gotten this far you may have issues with your OS but that is iffy sometimes but may be worth looking at. You will want your computer connected to the internet when you run the commands below as they may download files to update/fix your Operating System.

If you have done this but still can't get it to work, it could be your Operating System having issues. Here are some basics to help clean up broken files - you have to run these commands as an Admin in Command Prompt

sfc /scannow DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

If you are still unable to get into the game and stay in the game, I would suggest looking at your home router/switch equipment. It is tough sometimes troubleshooting but these steps will usually fix most game issues out there but specifically followed for this game it will should work.
