Unable to join a game ("Server Connection Lost")

Hello,

I am experiencing an error when trying to connect to any game. When attempting to connect, I make it past loading the map, and then when the matchmaking transitions to "Connecting to Server (time, usually 1:17 or 1:18), the game will disconnect me from matchmaking and give me a "Server Connection Lost" error. Afterwards, I can rejoin the game or "Leave". When attempting to rejoin the game, the same error will occur regardless of how long the game has been going on for.

I am able to play offline games.

I was able to join 2 games on Monday. Otherwise, the issue has persisted every other game.

I have attempted the following fixes to fix this problem, none of them seem to work:

  • Selecting certain servers instead of Auto on the launcher
  • Joining different maps
  • Joining as Player/Scav
  • Joining Solo/With a group
  • Joining at different times of day

Any suggestions or fixes?

you have to use a VPN like NordVPN or one that has a good number of servers or else you will be stuck with a high ping and bad latency.

I use NordVPN and have tried connecting to the closest servers to me. All of which end  up as "Server Connection Lost" trying to load in game. The stash and market work smoother, but I can't load into a single game while using VPN.

Found out the issue :)

I've been trying to connect using NordLynx protocol... Changed it to UDP and now everything works butter and BETTER than without VPN!!!
