Why does Roblox say we are experiencing technical difficulties?
Roblox says that they are experiencing technical difficulties because of a bug/glitch.
If you’re getting the error message when you’re trying to join a game/experience, it means that Roblox is probably down.
There are two ways to check if Roblox is down.
Firstly, you can visit downdetector.com/status/roblox/ and check the number of reports.
If there is a sudden increase in the number of reports, Roblox may be down for everyone.
Secondly, you can check the status of Roblox here: https://status.roblox.com/.
If the statuses are all “Fully operational”, it means that the game is not experiencing downtime.
However, the Roblox status website is usually not accurate as it only tracks major errors, so Down Detector might be more accurate.
