Nearly as many as ever. Probably a little jump off with BFBC2 but there are still 500 non password-ed, not empty servers right now at 7:00 est, hardly peak time.

I do normally play a lot, almost daily, but about a week ago I suddenly started suffering from massive packet loss and crazy lag. I have tried new drivers, re-installed Steam and the game, but to no avail. Others seem to be suffering from it too (I did post in this thread): http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=791112&goto=newpost

Very frustrating as it pretty much makes the game unplayable.

Still one of the most active MP games out there I believe. Whenever I fire it up I never have a problem seeing lists of full or close to full servers

Cripes, I'm still routinely kicked from my favorite servers for reserved slots.
This is a problem I found too and I have a problem finding servers I like in TF2. Too many are the fast respawn or modded crap.

I also dont like it nearly as much since the last few big patches , it went downhill imo.

Still a great game dont get me wrong, just worn out its welcome for me.

I play it nearly every day. I really need to start playing new maps or a new game mode. I pretty much always play payload on badwater/gold rush.

I'm going through this too. It sucks and I don't know what to do.

You sure its not the studdering steam bug?
Not sure what that is, but this is bad and it just started for me about a week ago after ages of no problems whatsoever on Vista, then on Win7.

Very puzzling. :hmm:
