What does error code 208 mean in Rocket Racing?

Rocket Racing just launched today to hungry masses. I tried to queue for matchmaking, only to be kicked out with the 208 error slapped in my face, again and again.

The 208 error is a connection error – either you can’t properly connect to Rocket Racing to queue for matches, or the servers are struggling to host the demand for all the players.

Considering that so many people will be wanting to play the Fortnite and Rocket League collaboration, it makes sense that the servers will be under a lot of strain and effort trying to keep everyone afloat.

So don’t worry – nothing is seriously wrong with the game or anything. This error is easily handled.

How to fix Error Code 208 in Rocket Racing

Error code 208 in Rocket Racing can be dealt with in a few ways. All solutions revolve around connectivity, so it should be a quick fix – otherwise, it’ll be a long wait.

First, check the Epic Games server status. If “Operational” is appearing next to Fortnite, then the Fortnite servers are healthy, and it’s not an error on their side. Naturally, if there is a problem, then all you can do is wait for them to fix it. Check back regularly so you can get in the game as quickly as you can.

If the servers are healthy, and you still can’t get into a game, then check your internet connection. It may be worth simply restarting everything – your device and your router, just to eliminate any potential strangeness going on. Once everything is restarted, try again.

After resetting your connection, making sure your internet works, and making sure the Fortnite servers are fine, the error should be resolved.

If it isn’t, then keep trying. This was the case for me, and it was simply a temporary server overload. I quickly got into my first game after badgering the “Play” button a handful of times. To completely make sure it’s not a connection issue, try to join another Fortnite game. If you get into them just fine, then it’s certain that the Rocket Racing servers are briefly overloaded.
