I've noticed this too ...there is often a long, long pause where nothing
seems to happen at the point you describe. But eventually, mostly, it does
'wake up' and connect, if it doesn't timeout first.
Try hitting your 'space' bar impatiently when this happens! lol... I dunno
but it appears to work for me!

Maybe it will be enough if you simply choose another Server. Maybe the
Server requires Cheating Death or that other Anti-Cheat tool
"B...something" (name forgotten).

Are you running cheating-death in the background on a server that uses
some other anti-cheat method (eg VAC)? I seem to remember a problem
with running C-D all the time. Just run it when needed for specific
servers. Also can't remember if it was a steam problem or
all-seeing-eye problem.

There'll be a huge CZ Steam update if you've just installed. My 56k connection
took about 10 hours to update it overnight. It's probably doing the update.
The game looks completely different after the update- slicked up models, a new
CT & T model, etc.
