This is a problem I have experienced from about 2 weeks ago, the game will take maybe 1-5 mins to start up rust this is before it even gets to the bootstrapper, anyone else experiencing this issue?
I haven’t experienced this on the initial load, but joining a server can take several minutes. Have you tried un-installing / reinstalling and/or verifying integrity?
OP I been getting this and not a single bit of help! I’m starting to think it has some thing to go with that easy anti cheat
