Ok so i had this problem where id join a game and almost immediately id be kicked with this message: Anti cheat authentication timed out: (1/2) . Well the problem happened to be a shortcut I had located on my desktop. Whenever I launched trough that the error would happen. The solution was to simply launch the game straight from steam. I want to share because this caused me a ton of grief for a week until I figured it out somehow. I also wanted to share to a dev so they could find a solution for those who cannot figure it out for themselves.
Kicked from game shortly after joining
