Hi, I boght this game for £30 on Steam ( a huge purchase for me!) and i cannot get into any game with human players online. I'm devastated that I got literally zero in return for my money.

It says something about "Wrong protocol", i've tried changing to include Steam DLC, i tried vanilla without any additional files , but nothing works. The lobby's that have peole playing in just says "Wrong Version" to me.

I'm in UK, playing English version of game bought via Steam. Steam keeps it up-to-date.
Why is there like 20 lobby's that are Empty -and then a small handful of lobbys with roughly 10 players inside that doesnt let me in FFS

I want my money back really, but failing that I'd love to play the mulitplayer which is the ONLY reason i purchased the game in the first place

If you still can get a refund from steam, I'd recommend buying it for $20 from http://www.wreckfestgame.com/wreckfest/   You'll recieve a Steam key via email.

If every server has a red cross, maybe try verifying game files with steam.

Online during the week, can be hard to find a stock server or host to join. Come Fri, Sat and Sun, odds go up you will find a few stock servers with players.

When Wreckfest get to a final release version, hopefully this May or June, online should be hopping again.
