I have the same issue, currently cannot join any server

According to Dean " Steam authentication is currently experiencing an issue. They are working to resolve it ASAP."

Yeah, same here for me and my mates.

It seems to let me join "full" servers. If I do that, I get stuck in Wait for host.

Seems like this was caused by the steam service. Rocket posted something about this at his twitter

yep, have the same problem.... An hour 1 and 1/2 hours ago it worked fine

Same issue here, mostly in the evenings (GMT+1)

Same problem here...

Same problem.

Yeah this problem appeared simultaneously with the steam aunthentication problems.

Updates are coming from Rockets twitter.

Also keep in mind that at peak hours a server with 0 players on it could fill up in SECONDS. So if you're trying to join an empty server/newly started server, it could actually be full instantly.

But yes, at the moment Steam is having some issues.

This is NOT a bug with DayZ, it is an issue with Steam's Authentication servers.

This bug report should be removed.

^this, it's steam auth servers, and steam can and will resolve this. Happened yesterday as well

Steam should issue a patch rather quickly for this fix, they usually do.

I get the same problem, im trying to join servers right now that are not full and its just telling me they are

Stuck on Wait for host and or Server is full when 4/40 or servers dont even show up on list

Possible fix, read POSSIBLE!

For the "Confirmation of Changes " -- "Connection closed" message.

My exact steps for the fix.

  1. Try some servers to force the error a few times (2-3 times).
  2. Go back to main menu.
  3. Click "Change Server".
  4. Try some more servers.
  5. Still not working? Repeat and usually after having to press "Change Server" twice or so I can get into servers.

Remember though that this might have to be repeated after every game launch. Also this might not be a fix for you, just thought i'd share it since this seems to work for me at least.

This is the only thing that works for me and eventually I can join servers again.

I have no clue about the origins of this so don't ask. Please do post your experience with this and if it worked for you or not.

NOTE: steam servers are currently down so trying this now wont be of use, steam is working hard for the sollution. It is not just Dayz SA that has the auth problem causing the "Waiting for host" issue. This is a steam based issue.

Fixed - i close issue
