Now, if you’re also going through the same issue then make sure to follow this troubleshooting guide. There are a couple of potential workarounds mentioned below that might resolve the issue.

How to Fix MultiVersus Syncing Account State Error

The MultiVersus team (Player First Games) is quite aware of this particular issue that has been reported by multiple players in a short period of time. The team did also acknowledge the same on a recent tweet by the official MultiVersus Twitter handle that you can check out.

The MultiVersus Twitter team has acknowledged restarting the game may fix the issue right now as they’ve done some improvements on the server-side. Though the problem should have been fixed for the majority of players, some may face it to date.

Exit and Quit the Game Properly

First of all, you should try to exit and quit the MultiVersus game properly no matter which device you’re using. Sometimes not quitting the game file or processes on the system may cause issues with the server connectivity when trying for the next time.

Once done, make sure to launch the MultiVersus game again to check for the issue. According to the MultiVersus Twitter team, they’ve implemented a fix to avoid the ‘syncing account sate’ error on the loading screen.

Reboot the System

Another thing you should do is to just restart the system (gaming device) properly after closing the game. It eventually refreshes the system cache and allows the program to load once again. Some affected players did find this method useful.

Just make sure to Shut Down or Power OFF the PC/console > Unplug the power cable from the gaming device > Wait for at least 5 minutes or so and then plug back the power cable in > Power ON (Boot) the device > Try launching the game again.

Reconnect the Internet Network

Make sure to disconnect and reconnect the internet network on the respective gaming device. It’s recommended because the temporary cache or networking glitch can also trigger server connectivity issues in most scenarios.

If in case, you have an ethernet (LAN) wired connection then just use it to check if the problem has been fixed or not. If you’re only using the Wi-Fi network then try using a different Wi-Fi connection to cross-check the account syncing state error with MultiVersus.

Alternatively, you can also try using the mobile data hotspot to check for the issue. Though mobile data hotspots might not be a good choice to play online games on a PC or gaming consoles due to slow speed, you can find out the reason at least.

You should also perform a power cycle method on your Wi-Fi router to ensure there is no conflict with the networking glitch whatsoever. Just Power OFF the router and disconnect the power adapter from the router. Then wait for 5 minutes or so.

Next, make sure to reconnect the power adapter > Turn ON the router and connect to the Wi-Fi network again > Try launching the game to check for the issue.

If in case, there is no issue with the internet connection at your end then make sure to follow the next method.
