Is CS:GO Down?
It looks like the CS: GO servers are currently down, as of 10:38am ET on August 9, 2022. According to CS: GO database, Steam performs server maintenance every Tuesday, so temporary outages are to be expected, and it may be that this one is running a little longer than usual. Currently, there’s a surge of session logons, and there’s a High Load on the Polish, US Southwest, and Emirates servers. The India East server is entirely offline.
Try restarting your computer or your router, and in extreme cases, check if your own Internet connection has some issues on your ISP’s end.
How to Check CS:GO Server Status
Down Detector can be a reliable resource, as is Steam Status, as any reports about outages over the last 24 hours will be reflected here. Players can also check out the CS:GO Database for more up-to-date reports about the server status.
If you see many other players having the same troubles that you have, then it is likely the game’s problem and not something you can remedy on your end. That might give you some time to check out other shooters like Valorant and Apex Legends.
