When trying to jump into a public game I can get past all the lobbies up until the game starts, opening dialogue plays, screen goes dark and this happens every time without fail.
If however I create my own game I can play without any problems so i'm sure its not a connection issue on my end. I have seen a lot of other posts about losing the connection midway through a match but nothing about being blocked from joining games all together.
Can anyone shine some light on the situation as the steam forums have given me nothing?
And yes I have given the game permission to go through my firewall.
