L4D2 multiplayer not working
The game works fine. When playing an offline (vs bots) game its fine. But as soon as I start any type of online game, being it a private match or a quick match, my game starts stuttering, freezes and then when I have to kill L4D2 in the taskmanager it also kicks me out of steam. So either this has something to do with L4D2 or steam.

I tried to reinstall steam,reinstall the game, check the game cache... but nothing worked, I even tried this:
But it did not work.

My computer specs shouldnt be a problem since time ago I played it and it worked (Cause i bought the game long ago, I paid for it)
The same happens to Dawn of war 2: retribution
all the other games run perfectly.

any advise/way to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

I joined a few games yesterday, my ping spiked to 900 for minutes at a time. Bad stuff, I had symptoms like you. Are you hosting or joining?

Can't find any multiplayer games.

Some of your problems are caused by the amount of players, the servers are saturated. But if you create a private online match and invite friends it should work. But for me it's not working, its just freezing the game and closing steam, thats my problem.
