I gave Pinion servers a fair chance. Alas none of the games on these servers were good experiences. Latency issues. Region issues for me. ( I am west coast, but connect to east coast. ) Glitched finales where the escape vehicle showed right away instead of fighting hordes & tanks like usual. Lately I have been using a workaround by typing openserverbrowser in console & selecting the server manually. Might want to give that a shot Anniesboobs.

I dont know what servers I'm on, but lately they work very, very badly. I get messages like "We're sorry, this server doesnt work in your country" or something. What do I care about that?! Just put me on a proper server, I dont care about your problems. This is Steam's work, not mine, as a client.

They're the most available because valve repurposed alot of the the official inhouse servers and replaced them with the pinion garbage. All of these problems have been prevalent since day one and both valve and pinion are well aware of them. This game is old and they cant make any money off it unless they throw it away for 5$ so Im sure they went with the cheapest hosting company they could find. Im sure they signed some kind of contract so get used to it. Hopefully they'll dump them whenever the contracts up because they clearly dont know what they're doing.

You could blacklist all the pinion but then good luck finding any server let alone a decent one in most regions. I just dug an old p4 rig out of the closet and setup my own linux dedicated server.

I would not say there is a lack of Official Dedicated servers. Rather... the lobby does not connect to a good one. At least in my case. Like i said lately I use the openserverbrowser to connect to servers for co - op. But I always find at least 3 or 4 which suit the needs for all 4 players.

Have you tried going idle while playing a campaign and bringing up task manager to monitor your cpu/ram usage?

Also im sure a hard drive defrag, virus scan and registry repair wouldn't hurt. If you dont maintain your OS's software environment, anywhere from a few months to a year, your computer will slow down and run like crap. Lack of software maintenance is why people have to reformat so often.

I haven't had anything wrong with them gameplay wise, but they're so damn vanilla, almost every last one, and make you sit through advertisements, I despise them. I never use one unless I'm desparate. The same goes for Team Fortress 2.
