As the title says I get stuck on "Joining Server..." every time when I try to join a server. I have tried repairing the installation, re-installing the game, deleting the documents folder, running it as administrator, etc...
It used to work just fine but when I switched to a different server this problem occured and won't go away.
And yes, I tried tons of different servers

Please help!

Sorry, Worked for me. Perhaps its someting with your virus protection. Eaven though after i run with me UPnP of I still get stuck on initializing from time to time. I just open task maneger and end BF3.exe. Then rejoin.

Did you try restarting the PC? It used to work, though, now all of a sudden it stopped... Though give it a try, might as well just incase.

Yeah, I restarted my PC multiple times since I had the problem and it doesn't change a thing.

Im having the same prolem. I think we have to wait until aftermath comes out until EA actually address the situation and fix it. They are doing a pretty poor job of it at the moment by not even telling us what the problem is.

hello,
please see this:-
its an origin side bug ME3 has the same problem
http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/344/index/12246028/1#12329336 [social.bioware.com]
remove IGO32.dll (as far as i can tell is a redundant file) from you origin folder and bf3 works fine (for me at least)

or try this:-

Disabelin UPnP is the only thing that worked for me. However I still can't play COOP, just stuck on Initalizing and after a while it just shuts down. I havent and can't unlock the g3a3. Which is fine i guess, Wouldent play with it anyways but if theres a assigment that requires the G3 im pretty screwed.

After deleting the file it switches from "Joining Server..." to "Initializing..." but then it closes the game as soon as it tries to start.
Thanks anyways, guys.

One more thing. If you have Virtu MVP, disable it. That solved the problem for me.
