Cant find poplulated servers?
I cant find populated servers yet it says there is around 1000 people playing on the community hub.I put the filter on for servers with players but I just find one or two servers with 2 or 3 guys in them,and they are usually at extremely high ping.I dont understand why this happens,because I was playing the game for hours weeks ago and now its messed up.

go to steam->settings->ingame-> then set your browser pings to 250.

Thanks for the help but that did not work.

It depends on which country you in.

If your in Australia, then expect 1-3 populated servers tops.

Absolutely no servers found via the server browser. Kinda pointless installing this game then.

What country are you in? I find at least 2 full servers at any time (like 5am) and from afternoon-2am or so, usually a good 10 full.

This happens if you have blocked ports.

Ports are properly opened as they've always been, must be the server browser then (in steam).
make sure you don't have any filters on the server browser.
@termoooonator just read your post abit more carefully, this could be an issue with your router/modem and/or internet service provider. try running an MTR to for instance. that will rule out quite afew issues. leave it running for atleast 500 packets. after its done "copy text to clipboard" and paste it this thread. you can download it here if your using windows.
(if your running mac/linux, you'll need to google it.)

here's an example of what mine looks like. (i'm not having any problems).

as a side note, country shouldn't matter as half the servers on my list are europe based even tho i'm from canada.

Server lists ..

TF2 : 4000+ servers found

Serious Sam 3: 35 servers found (just to confirm it does not only find valve games)

Natural Selection 2: 0 servers (and I've tried during the day and night)

I guess Steam's server browser doesn't work for NS2. Here is what you should be seeing right now (this is for the UK)

Yeah, I don't believe Steam's server brower works correctly. You'll need to use the ingame server browser to get any results.
