The Quake Champions Beta is here and everyone is trying to kill each other at the same time. This is putting a huge load on the servers and testing the network bandwidth of the enter system.
If you are having connection issues with Quake Champions then you need to setup a port forward in your router.
The idea behind a port forward is that it ensures that the traffic from the internet is routed properly to your gaming console or PC. This helps with many issues, such as:
- Not being able to get any kills, or very low kill count.
- Frequent connection drops.
- Not being able to join a match or getting kicked from lobbies.
Usually setting up a port forward in your router will make most of these problems go away.
