Alright so initially I thought I just couldn't connect to dallas servers. But now I haven't been able to connect to multiple locations and is not a problem with routing. I couldn't connect to a new york and chicago but run a tracert to both and it went through fine so that is not the issue. My game goes not responding when I reach retrieving server info (if I check task manager). I've tried leaving it connecting for like 5 minutes and it won't ever connect. Is it possible for a graphics card to be doing this? because I have had some issues with my card recently as well. I've posted on steam forums and sent in steam support tickets and I can't seem to fix this shit so please help me! :(
I had a similar connectivity problem a while back, but I can't remember the exact circumstances anymore. The fix was to disable Steam Cloud and then verify TF2's game cache. Just putting that out there, if you haven't tried already.
that may have worked :) I was able to join the last 4 servers, but it could easily stop working again so ill let you know.
Good to hear! :) Hope it's still working for you.
