Still cant update my client!!!

Anyone have a solution besides restarting steam???

restarting steam didnt do anything, all i can say is wait.

Try checking if your game auto updates by going to Library > Right click on Rust > Properties > Updates > Always keep this game up to date or High Priority - Always auto-update this game ASAP.

Both servers are updated … clients updated … now … ConnectFailed and a bunch of NullResponsive … thingy written all over the console… This patch broke the game … again…

It’s not the patch.
Attacks are DDoS’ing the hosting companies now it seems.

Well, the host have said the patch increased the cpu usage by 250% which could easily cause lag and crashes. So i’d say its both.
