I noticed this started a month ago when connecting to Valve's servers with an AirVPN server results in a dropped connection. Previously it was possible to run AirVPN on a router and play games on Steam. However, nowadays whilst finding a match with the game coordinator still works it'll disconnect the player and impose a penalty despite accepting the match. Attempts at a workaround by changing servers to different regions, changing DNS servers, OpenVPN and Wireguard protocols, different network interface and devices results in the same dropped connection. It seems like Valve's gaming servers are currently blocking AirVPN.
I enjoy online multiplayer gaming as a past time and although I enjoy using a VPN to keep even my gaming sessions safe and encrypted, I know it can give a hit to my ping and such. I never tried AirVPN with online gaming yet but I wonder if anyone, from experience, can tell me if it is indeed a suitable VPN for online gaming. Otherwise, what other VPN service can anyone suggest for just gaming while still using AirVPN for other online activities? Thanks.
I have been using AirVPN for about 5 months and I have a problem I cannot resolve. I play Steam games on the internet, like Left4Dead, and the gaming servers now see me as being in the UK, and try hook me up to servers local to Europe, and not to my home area around Los Angeles. Befor I play, I always quit out of AirVPN. But it seems some setting is left behind in my setup that makes the game servers see me as being in the UK and not in the Los Angeles area. Anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks.
