Make a note of your configuration before it is lost to the servers.

Keeping a game can be more challenging than developing it, especially when it's a hit like VALORANT. Although Riot Games fixed some bugs during the game's first calendar year, new bugs keep popping up, mostly due to server issues.

When servers go offline on an online title, almost everything stops working, which also applies to saving settings. The "error saving settings to server" usually occurs when players try to save their settings after making minor adjustments. You may also get this error out of nowhere and load it into a game with default settings on rare occasions.

Considering that most VALORANT players customize their settings to be appropriate for their game, entering a game with the default ones could take a couple of rounds before they realize what is happening.

Here's how you can fix the "Could not save settings to server" error in VALORANT.

How to fix the error "could not save the configuration to server" in VALORANT

When you receive the error "Could not save the configuration to server" in VALORANT, the servers are most likely down or have connectivity problems. Before you start troubleshooting the latter, you need to make sure your servers are in good health.

  • Check the status of the VALORANT server through the official Riot server tracker.
    • Pick VALORANT from the list and choose your region to see how the servers are doing.
    • Alternatively, you can also confirm the servers’ status through Down Detector or community hubs like Reddit.

If the servers are down, you will have no choice but to wait for Riot to release a fix. In cases where the game seems to be working fine for everyone else, but you keep getting this error, there are a couple of home remedies you can try.

  • Exit VALORANT and re-launch the game.
    • Although it may seem simple, restarting your game will allow you to reconnect to the VALORANT servers. If a faulty server was causing you problems in your previous attempts, you could fix the error by logging in multiple times.
  • Reset your router.
    • Riot doesn't have all the cards when it comes to your connection to the servers. There is one more variable in the equation and it is your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Your ISP will be responsible for routing your connection to the game servers and an error that occurs within that stage can cause server-related errors to appear. Resetting your router can help you reestablish your connection to the servers.

While this isn't a solution at all, saving your settings can also make the error less annoying in the long run. Your setup should go back to how it was after the server issues were resolved. But if you somehow get into a match with the default settings, there is a chance that your settings will be overwritten. This means that the default settings will take over your settings and you will need to reset everything when the servers are back to normal.

Take a screenshot of your configuration or save it in ".txt" and ".json" formats. Even if your layouts change after the bug is resolved, you'll be able to apply your original settings as quickly as possible, making sure you don't waste too much time before jumping into your next game.
