Hi juanmamedina,

I also receive the "Please Wait" message when accessing servers. After waiting for a couple of minutes, I do manage to connect to the servers though. In case waiting for a couple of minutes does not allow you to join servers, just send me a note with your Steam ID url, and I'll have a look at it. Example: ""

Also, please let me know if your character is on a Regular/Hardcore server.

If you prefer to send your Steam ID url in a private message, you can click the "Make Private" button to the left of your message after you click the button labeled "Add Note".



JStewart, i get back to the 046 versión because it have less bugs, obiously, but with 046 it hadn't happened to me again, this happened with 047 on regular servers and i realized that you have to be patient, waiting after a couple of minutes allways start the game,the please wait screen sometimes takes a Long while sometimes takes a short while so... Just wait.

otherwise i would like to tell you, if you want, that the worst part of 0.47 is the ramdom freezes, zombies still walking through walls and allways through closing doors, melee weapons are not effective than before on 046, hard to hit zombies, zombies hits you with 3 meters of distance from you,zombies havent realistic animation inside houses, objects desappears ramdomly when you drop it from your inventory, i have reported all this bugs, and i would like you to take a look.

Thank you so much and sorry for my bad English.

This happens to my friends and me a lot, too. It happens on any sever (regular and hardcore) of the stable version (0.46). After waiting for the spawn timer to end (70 seconds?) it is really annoying to wait another 3 to 5 minutes for the "Please wait" to disappear and finally to spawn.

To me it seems like that this happens after you have joined several servers. If you join the first server after starting the game this is not happening. But if you were on another server before and want to join another server the time for "Please wait" is getting longer.

This is especially annoying if you are playing with clan mates because then it is essential to able to join and rejoin different servers. For example you want to meet your teammates on an empty server and then start to fight on a full server and have to wait a long time.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I'll close out this issue as a dupe of #11456 then.
