Valorant, the new tactical shooter made by Riot Games is already getting tons of hype with more than one million people tuning in to watch it on Twitch. Just like any other games, server issues are there.
What is the main reason that servers in Valorant do not work and are not available? No one knows the specific reason for the problem you are encountering, but there are a few possibilities for the issue with the connection to the servers. The first one is an update that is in progress. The second one is the server is down for maintenance. The third one is a simple Valorant server that is being made. Unfortunately, the error that you get gives you nothing. There is nothing that you can do about the fact that the servers in Valorant are not working, except to wait for them to turn on. However, during this period of time, you can make sure that the issue is not on your side by checking out the internet connection.
The blessed players of Valorant who got closed beta access may be experiencing some errors, including the popular error code 43. Riot Games, the developer of the game, has been communicative in how it is handling these issues, explaining exactly what the devs are doing to manage the complaints.
For those who want to check the Valorant servers status, the best way is to check the official Twitter account of Valorant, which has been updating fans regularly on the status of the game. In order to avoid the error code 43, for instance, the official Twitter account of Valorant explained that closed beta access is being temporarily paused. It will stop distribution until a stable fix has been fixed.
Aside from the official Twitter account, Riot Games also has a support section of Valorant on the official website of Riot Games with the urgent notifications at the top. It is still unknown if the developer is going to add Valorant to its Server Status page, but the Updates for League of Legends and Legends of Runeterra are both able to be found on the Service Status page, so it would make sense for the tactical shooter named Valorant to be added as well. On top of that, they may also make a dedicated Valorant page for server updates or maintain the support section of the official website for that.
As stated before, the most recommended way to check the server status of Valorant is to check the official Twitter of it. If you do not have a Twitter account, please create first as it will not take too much of your time. Actually, you are still able to check out their Twitter account without signing in. Another thing that you can try is to visit the community of Valorant. The members of the community usually share any information related to Valorant so there is a chance for you to get the information about the server status.
