Can't connect to servers anymore.

Hi,
I'm a release player with 353 hours played.
I have played Mordhau since it came out every day with no issues.
2 days ago on the night of June 5th I was in a duelyard with a friend after playing all day, the map changes and I am immediately disconnected. For the past 2 days now whenever I try joining a server I get the high packet loss symbol followed immediately by a disconnect with the error message "the connection has timed out."
I have tried the following things:

  • Resetting my modem
  • Reinstalling Mordhau
  • Reinstalling Steam
  • Rebooting my pc
  • Flushing my DNS
  • Disabling my firewall
  • Allowing Mordhau through my firewall

None of these things have worked. My internet and PC are both solid and I can play any game or go to any website just fine. The problem is only on Mordhau. I'd really like to play Mordhau so help would be appreciated. :(

That's sucks tbh, youve tried everything. I'd be pissed in your case. Have you installed any software recently, upgraded drivers or do you have any anti virus?

No.. nothing changed between the time I was able to play and the time I haven't been able to. Was just playing, the map changed, I get disconnected, and here I am 2 days later still can't play.

An update to the issue, I sometimes can get into a game for about 30 seconds, pick a team, and then not be able to spawn before getting kicked with the message "Kicked while waiting for steam inventory."

So I logged into my friends steam account to try it out. When I launched the game on his account I got a popup saying "conflicting local files to those on the steam cloud" I was given the option to download from cloud or upload my local files. I chose to use the cloud files. I am able to play Mordhau completely fine from my friends steam account. I was hoping that would have fixed the issue for me, but when I go back on my account I still have the same issue.

I tried uninstalling mordhau and deleting every file that has anything to do with mordhau from from my pc, but upon reinstalling I still had the same issue. I'm at a bit of a dead end again and not sure where to go, but this should help narrow down the problem.

Someone else who had the exact same inventory issue said

I fixed it.
My solution was to fully reinstall steam and place it in another drive and/or in another folder

Same exact problem for me, I am able to play perfectly fine on an alt steam account. Same pc and everything.

I tried reinstalling steam onto both drives on my PC in new folders on each drive, as well as installing mordhau on both drives. The problem persisted through the entire process.

I appreciate the suggestion though.

The devs need to acknowledge this as a problem on their end cos essentially you aren't able to play a product you paid for while everyone else can, that's not right.
