Can also confirm this is happening.
I can’t figure out how to temporarily fix the issue either; this was happening constantly yesterday, so I just had to wait a good 15-20 minutes before I would try again (and eventually got in). Today, I’ve waited over 2 hours to no avail.
*EDIT: To clarify too, it’s happening exactly in the order OP posted:
- Respawn Bug (timer goes down to 0, doesn’t actually respawn you)
- Manually quit/Alt+F4 out of the game, reload & attempt to rejoin server
- Loading screen shows loading symbol moving but never loads.
When this does occur, it only happens with the server that you died on I believe; I was able to join another random server successfully but still can’t join the one I died on. I’ve tried restarting Steam, my computer, and going as far as validating the game files, troubleshooting-wise.
