[Solved] Game stuck on "loading, please wait"



  • I know this is a common problem, but I still want to see if anyone has a solution yet.

    Whenever I enter a game, I get the “loading please wait” box before the loading screen (the loading screen-with the tips and such). However, it never changes to the loading screen. It just says “loading please” wait for 5+ minutes before displaying a “connection to the host was lost” message. My internet fine. I have been able to join 1 server in 3 days.

    I have tried:
    -Reinstalling
    -Joining different game modes
    -Verifying the cache
    -Opting into, and back out of the beta

    Nothing works. I really want to play! Help!

    EDIT: I restarted steam and it works now. Why did I not try that before?



  • This helps sometimes, and other times it does not. Do not feel bad for not trying it. Others have said it didn’t help. The problem should be resolved in the next patch. Sorry for the hassle.
