Does anyone have any advice for sudden “Lost Connection to Steam” issues that happen 85% of the time I try to play the game?
What happened (twice in a row today) is… I wait 20 minutes. I finally get into a decent match. I am dropped midway through with a message like “Lost Connection to Steam.” I check my connection to the Internet. It’s fine. I look at Steam. After a few seconds, I can see all friends again and am connected. I make it back in, but it’s too late. The game’s over, or it’s too late for me to do anything.
Full disclosure… I do have internet issues on occasion where my computer will drop me… but when I can still get on Google after it randomly disconnects Steam, I literally can’t play the game.
I’m only able to get on casually, and to waste my time waiting, waiting, waiting, then finally getting in and getting disconnected, it’s not how I want to spend my free time. I’ve literally had more fun posting on the forums than trying to play the game for the last few weeks.
Are there any suggestions for things I can do to try to improve performance? (Preferably not simple things, because I’ve tried fixing this before, and the simple solutions Steam gives almost never work)
Once again, it may be my internet, but I find it suspicious that ONLY Steam is disconnecting.
UPDATE: I realize I forgot key information.
Running Windows 10. NVIDIA graphics. Discord was NOT active at the time (there is a known issue where Discord will cause me to lose my internet connection). Probably could have filled out a support ticket, but I’m super burnt out right now. Kind of just wanted to vent. May ask content mod later to delete this.
