In this article, we will discuss how to fix Goose Goose Duck Rate Exceeded Error. This is an error code that you will see when you try to join too many games in the same period of time. Trying to join so many games in a short span of time triggers a safety measure response from the server to prevent you from spamming the game and the server crashing. 

In the next section, we will discuss how to fix this error code in the different scenarios that it shows up.


How to Fix Goose Goose Duck Rate Exceeded Error?


Fix 1: Wait for a while before you connect to another game

Since the server blocks the access of the players who tried to join too many games in a short span of time, the most viable solution to this problem is to wait for a while before you connect to another game.

This is however a solution that you will need to apply before you get this error code and not after the error code. This is basically a precautionary measure.

Sure that you’re playing only one game for some time and then take your time before switching to another game. This might not happen when switching from only one game to another, but if you are trying to switch to too many games in a short span of time, you will face this issue. So take care of this.


Fix 2: Check the status of the server

It is possible that the server has already crashed and it has nothing to do with what you were doing in the game.

This can happen because some other player has tried to join too many games and the safety measure backfired. Too many players logging in at the same time can also make the server crash.

It is also not always that server goes down due to crashes only. It can also happen when the server is scheduled for maintenance.

To check if the status of the server is down or up, you can Google Down Detector. In the search bar type the name of the game and then run a test. You will now see a real-time report of all the outages in all the regions for the game.

If the server is down, there is nothing you can do but wait and come back later.


Fix 3: Switch off your Virtual Private Network

This is a common error that shows up when you are using a Virtual Private Network, hard or Network proxy to access the gaming platform.

This is because by using a Virtual Private Network or network proxy you are not revealing the exact location of your IP address, which causes hurdles in the identification of your account.

If you are using a Virtual private network, shut down the program and all the processes related to the program. Also, switch off the network proxy if you are using one.

Now relaunch the game and see if this solves your issue.


Fix 4: Restart your device

The device that you are using to play the game might be the main cause of the issue behind this error code.

This is because when you are using a device for too long, the processes in the background start conflicting with each other. This is because people do not stop to clear the memory and refresh the device in between sessions.

To remove this temporary issue from the device that you are using to play, you can restart the device. A Power cycling session will remove all the conflicting processes from the background of the device memory and then you will be able to play the game in peace.


Fix 5: Clear the cookies and cache from the browser memory

If you were trying to play too many games at the same time and the browser stored this information in the form of temporary files like cookies and cache, then you will be facing this error code even when you have given the server the time to settle down.

This is because the cookies and cache stored on the web browser store information that you repeatedly enter on the platform so that you can save time without entering this information.

To make sure that the cookies and cache are not a problem for you and behind this error code, you need to clear the cookies and cache from the browser memory.

Even if this does not solve your issue, you will still notice that the browser becomes faster and you are now not facing repeated glitches on the web browser while playing the game.


Fix 6: Contact the player support team for the game

If none of the above solutions have helped you get rid of this error code, then you need to get in touch with the support team.

There are certain things that you need to know about the support team. You need to be patient because the support team is generally busy. It takes quite a while for getting back to you. 

Clearly underline the problem for them so that they can help you in the best manner possible so that it does not take much time for you to repeatedly explain the issue to them.

It is even better if you also include screenshots of the problem in your support ticket because the support team will be better able to understand you when that happens.


Fix 7: Visit the player forums for the game

If you do not wish to visit the support team because they’re taking a lot of time, you can visit the player forums where other players give you advice on the error code that you’re facing.

You can find these player forums on platforms like Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.

However, whatever advice you receive on this pair forum should be taken With the understanding of the fact that this is not an official support-sanctioned solution that you are trying to use, it might also cause harm to your device if you are not careful with it.
