How to fix Connecting to CS:GO Network Error

Sometimes when players boot CS:GO they’ll spot an error message that says ‘Connecting to CS:GO Network’ on top of the game’s menu. This error prevents users from playing on the official CS:GO servers such as matchmaking games, deathmatch, retakes, and Arms Race. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that the servers are down. First and foremost, players should check if the CS:GO servers are down. There are a few methods to do that, but one of the most reliable ways is accessing the website, which shows the status of all Steam services like CS:GO, Dota 2, and Team Fortress 2.
