    I can't connect to Skial or any community servers in general. Been like this for more than a month and I don't see anyone talking about it. These Valve servers suck and so does whatever the TFTeam did that makes matches entirely one sided. Please help.

    Need more information. Like what error messages are you getting? Have you tried to join by IP or the community list?

    Some people have said this fixed it for them: Go to library, right-click tf2, click properties, click set launch options and put in:
    +clientport 27006-27014

    The only message I receive is a popup when connecting that says "Disconnected: Connection failed after 4 retries." Dev console just says the same thing, it tried connecting to the server four times. However! This was by trying to connect to the server using the favorites tab on the community server list. When I tried connecting directly it worked! Odd. Now that I connected though there seems to be a problem of low ping game stutter and connection lost. Found some possible solutions by searching but have to wait till later to see if it fixes it.

    Doesn't seem to of had any effect.

    Thank you for your assistance!

    Sounds like you have 2 computers running steam with different accounts on the same IP at the same time. Do you share your IP? If so Meowcenary's fix should work. Maybe change the port range a bit more. Here's a video I found with a quick search. Make sure Steam is fully updated. Stick with servers in your area if you don't have a great internet speed. You can check your speed here. Speedtest.net When all else fails....reinstall the game and/or Steam.

    Let us know what you came up with.
