Issue Report: buggy tf2 offline mode
When I start Steam in offline mode and play team fortress 2 (in the 'practice mode'), I get the folowing error, after a few seconds
A connection to the Steam VAC servers could not be made. For troubleshooting network issues, please click in the link below.

The link doesn't work by the way, and the game doesn't crash, just return to the main menu. The console output is:
