Can anyone think of a reason why it takes so long to retrieve server info whenever I join a server? whenever I play matches whoever I'm playing with always gets in before I do, and I have (in some cases) a much better system than they do! I know it's not my internet ISP because it happened at a LAN too, I was always the last to join. System specs - Intel Core Duo 2ghz, 1GB RAM, ATi Mobility x1800

    System specs dont matter, its your connection. How do you know its not your ISP?

    This happens to me too. It takes like 5 minutes for me to enter a server. I don't know what it is, but I got used to it.

    My computer isn't nearly as good as yours and I sometimes join servers way before others.

    I know that loading has alot to do with the amoont and speed of ram you have, and you should be fast but I would check on firewall stuff. mabie that is what is slowing it down so much.

    Try not opening media player and stuff before you play css. Usually thats what does it to me, if i play music and stuff before hand it takes ages to join.

    On my bros computer that would always happen to me it would take forever for me to join a server
    it turned out to be his ram was going bad and his firewall was causing it
    I have dual kingston ram 1g and I join in 3-6 seconds

    It takes me at least twenty seconds, and I have T2...

    The only thing that bothers me about it is that you can't "Cancel" out of Retrieving Server Info. It annoys me to hell.
