    UPDATE: Valve is aware of this issue and are working to fix it. It's a problem with steam authentication. In addition some other games using the same steam authentication system are experiencing this issue.[/b]

    Some users can connect, some can't, sometimes resetting steam works, sometimes it doesn't. We will let you guys know exactly what is going on as soon as we can. Thanks a bunch for being patient and sorry about the downtime.


    UPDATE 2 : We're attempting to restart some of the servers, this means the server you are playing on may go down for a few minutes

    (update)

    For the past around 24 hours I could join other servers than Central 4. After just checking I can no longer join any server

    WaitedLimbo after the new server gives me WaitedLimbo and attempt to connect again I get AuthFailure.

    Short: Now unable to play any server, where as prior AuthFail was just for home server (Central 4)

    Hey guys, we're aware of this issue, it just popped up out of nowhere without us changing anything, We think it might be an issue with a Steam update, however we're going to do the best we can to fix it on our end.

    Some users can connect, some can't, sometimes resetting steam works, sometimes it doesnt, We're looking into it right away and I will let you guys know exactly what is going on as soon as I can, Thanks a bunch for being patient and sorry about the downtime
    Yes unfortunately I cannot enter any of the community or official servers.... Please solve this issue, me & my friends love this game... Please inform us... thank you

    I know this was happening last night and the official severs got a reboot at like 12 am EST and that fixed the issue for a while. This could be a temp fix till you figure things out.

    seems like a connection failure to the steam user db at first.. (times out on new server) then just defaults to "AuthFailure" on following attempts without taking as long.

    Hi,

    I've noticed multiple games (Prime world, Planitary Annihilation) that use a 3rd party authentication system are not connecting at the moment for me.

    It might not only be a Rust issue, but a general issue with steam authenticating to 3rd parties.

    Also, something else i noticed.
    The friends who can still play logged in to steam over 2 hours ago or even longer ago.
    Me and 1 other friend who logged in to steam in the last hour can not connect. I dont know if there is a relation to this, but it could help

    There is something quite exciting and satisfying about having trouble logging in and immediately finding a dev post from 20 minutes before saying they are working on it. Thanks for the quick response Helk, and some people as always need to read what they are buying before they do so.

    Well that was entertaining, watching that one dude get fucking wrecked in seconds.

    Regardless, I'm confident that a solution will be found, no matter where the problem came from.

    I'll try whatever the devs want me to to help debug & troubleshoot.

    I'm on a macbook pro right now, haven't installed on PC yet, in the US Midwest/East Coast.

    Restarted Steam, Deleted Local Game Files & Reinstalled, verified game cache, restarted in windowed mode, basically tried everything I can think of without getting into console or anything like that.

    Edit, I also want to say THANK YOU SO FUCKING MUCH for making this available on a mac. I have a gaming PC but I can't always coop myself up in my manchild cave and play on PC, having responsibilities and all that... so it's nice to take this game with me on my MBP.
