This one has plagued me for a while now (since start of “experimental”). Trying to enter a popular server that is full requires me to attempt entry many times…
Hitting refresh button on the server listing multiple times will result in some sort of “Empty” server list. Either I hit refresh a bunch more times to get a complete listing or restart client. More often, restarting client will result in a successful server listing of servers available.
I know this is something small and not big on the importance list, but thought I would share it anyways.
On a side, I have found it easier to enter a full server by doing the following:
1 Select servers (top center option)
2 Select desired server (previous server is already selected if you have done this step already)
3 Click join on the upper right
4 Wait ~5 (preferred) to 10 seconds (says connecting center screen) no join
5 Click Cancel (center screen option, can hear background music reset)
Repeat steps 1 through 5 until successful connection
Keep this going until you join
Clicking “reconnect” does not reset background music. Not sure if this really does try an authentic reconnect or not. This is why I perform the steps outlined above to ensure a true restart before a new connection attempt. These steps usually get me in more often than trying other methods.
If you have other steps or procedures that you have found successful to join popular servers that are full, please, by all means I would like to hear them.
