Among Us’s recent popularity has come with its own downfalls. One of the prominent ones being server space. Many users often fail to connect to servers that clearly have a few spaces left. Additionally, if you are unlucky, you might get the “matchmaker is full” error. Let’s take a quick look at it.
What is Among Us matchmaker?
Among Us like every other multiplayer game, has a matchmaking algorithm working behind the scenes. This helps direct users to their desired rooms as well as help custom room users find each other using the special code.
Sometimes when there are too many simultaneous requests, the matchmaker can get overwhelmed. This can result in a few users getting the “matchmaker is full” error message.
