    Hi dear Community,

    I have the same problem as stated by a couple of others: the launcher states "Connecting to Steam", then "Connectin to Login Server" and after a while says that there is a Timeout and I have to restart the client. I can't get into the game, unfortunately (never could, bought it yesterday).
    Might the problem be, that I'm logging in from Russia right now? Or is there another reason?

    I would be grateful for you help.

    Thank you for the quick reply. Not my government specifically, but still.
    Could you suggest a VPN provider? A Google search results in a lot of alternatives and I'm not quite sure which one to pick.

    Doesn't really matter what kind of VPN client you use, there are some free alternatives and also a lot of different VPN server you can access for free with those clients. However I would recommend turning those VPNs off once you're done playing if its a public VPN
