Exclamation Steam sync is falling apart...whats going on?

I got no connection to friends, my srcds is going crazy saying no connection to Steam servers repeatedly, no Valve/Steam related game with a Steam console in it will start(just says "Preparing to launch game..."/or with the ClientRegistery.blob file gone "This game is unavailable..."), and the Steam master server is out of sync displaying wrong information about the servers player info/count.

For Example: When you refresh servers on the master server and you see a server [cp_gravelpit 4/16 players], when you right click then view server info it says there's 7/16 players and it's listing 15 people in the scroll down names bar, 90% of all servers about I inspected display fake/out-of-sync information except servers in my LAN and Favorites bar.

Hope you fix this soon...

Steam's currently down for maintenance, which is mostly likely causing your problems. Check this thread for when it's back up, and re-test the issue again.

Are they updating the master server? Because the master server has been out of sync for the last 2 days, and its
p-i-s-s-i-n-g <----(Valve auto text word replace fail) me off since I don't want to spend 20 seconds looking at each server to get correct info rounded up. I like servers with 4 vs 4 and the fake information crap is not helping.

I couldn't really tell you with the master server list. That's probably a separate issue (or maybe not). I've experienced it before. One of my friends was reportedly still in the server I was in, and had left 30 minutes ago.

However, there are plugins where server owners can 'fake' their player numbers. This isn't really something Valve can fix (that I know of), but they can (and do) go after those server owners.

Well those are just cheap plugins some trade server owners use :P but that's not what i'm talking about this is fake info on almost EVERY server D: Now the steam master server cant list a single god damn server except the ones in my favorites and my srcds server.

VALVE Y U NO MAKE STABLE SERVERS?!?!

One thing you can try when maintenance is over (because otherwise it probably won't update anyway), is to delete your masterserver file in Program Files > Steam > config.

This will refresh that file and possibly fix your issue.
