This bullshit happens to my servers on a daily basis:
Sometimes just a few people drop, sometimes everyone drops. Very frustrating. I’ve looked into this problem and it seems like it’s on Valve’s end. I’m aware that you can type -insecure which disables Valve authentication and that just might fix this problem. Are there any downsides to doing this, besides that it lets in more hacking assholes? In particular, would it affect a server’s ability to show on the master server list if -insecure was set?
