Original story (published on June 04, 2021) follows:

The dodgeball-like multiplayer game, Knockout City, came pretty recently but has become quite popular lately.

While players are trying to enjoy the game on platforms like Nintendo Switch, an issue has been preventing them from doing so.


It seems Nintendo Switch users have been facing the lag or crashing issue with Knockout City.

The official Knockout City Twitter handle recently announced that they are rolling out a server-side fix to address the said issue.

However, it seems that Nintendo Switch users are facing the crashing or lag issue Knockout City even after the said server-side fix.


While the initial server-side fix might have been a generic one, a more focused fix might be on the way.

This is simply due to the fact the said issue has now been acknowledged by the official EA Help Twitter handle.

It has been said that the games team is aware of the lag or crashing (server connectivity) issue and they will fix it as soon as possible.


Since the acknowledgement does not include any ETA, it is unclear how long it will take for the said fix to arrive.

However, the game publisher has provided a workaround which can help affected Nintendo Switch users for the time being.

The official workaround involves pressing the A, Home, A, Home, A keys in the same order on Nintendo Switch whenever the crash occurs.


So, those who are facing the server connectivity issue on their Nintendo Switch can go for the workaround given above until a permanent fix arrives.

That said, we will keep tracking this and will report back with more details as and when they become available.
