I got the game Free To Play, and I was able to play a few games, but now whenever I click play now, it says "Retrieving Server Information, Please Wait", but it never gets the info and I can't connect because the button doesn't appear. Same thing with browse servers: I click on it, but the server list never comes up.

It's possibly because of your modem/router. The game pings a lot of servers (thousands?). Cheaper routers can't handle that many connections at once so it tries to shut off some stuff, which is why you don't see pings and sometimes your internet connection just completely drops for a few seconds.

Getting the exact same issue. It's been "refreshing" for the last 15 minutes and I can't even view one server.

You can manually connect to a particular server if you want.

Browser servers via this site:
http://www.gametracker.com/search/tf2/

Copy the IP:Port, open the console, then just type: connect <IP>. Example connect 127.0.0.1:27015 (the IP won't work but it's just to show you how it looks like)

Thanks for the help! But how do you open the console?

I've just been using servers in my history, but that wouldn't help new folks much. I'll have to try that site.

~ key. Top-left corner of the keyboard. You might have to enable console in advanced options first.

I'm also having this problem. "Console" is not an option in the advanced options.

It's under the Keyboard tab I think.
