Apex Legends players are encountering quite a few problems lately and unfortunately, most are related to matchmaking. Players who are getting this issue are reporting that the game is stuck on attempting to connect and retrieving matchmaking list for a really long time. Even if they manage to log in, they are not able to play the game due to the splash screen endless loading loop. In this article, we will take a look at the potential fixes for Apex Attempting Connection issues.
How to Fix Attempting Connection Loop Problem in Apex Legends
The solution to fix the Attempting Connection issue in Apex Legends is to disable the NAT option in your Router settings. On the EA forum, this is listed as an accepted solution so you can try it out to see if it works for you. You can also try to use a VPN because this option has worked out for some.
These are not guaranteed fixes so if both of these methods don’t work out for you, you can check if Apex servers are down at that point or not. Server related problems can cause issues while matchmaking. You can head over to DownDetector to know the Apex Legends server status at any point in time.
