Finding server in the list

This is an Alternative Method and not recommended as there are thousands of SOTF servers and a newly started server will not appear straight away in the list.

The list can take over 5 minutes to populate fully with all server results.

Make sure your service is running and up to date as stated in other method. Then, click "Multiplayer" -> "Join".

Once there, change the "Source" in the top left" to "Dedicated"


Then click refresh and the server list will populate, this can take over 5 minutes and new servers may not appear in the list,

it could be a few hours for a new server to be populated in the list.

Use the filter on the left side to search by part or all of your server name.


You should find your server, then click "Join". If you fail to find the server, try the direct connection option above.
