I have seen other people post about this and have there problem solved but I've literally done everything I can and nothing seems to work. I've restarted the game, I've restarted steam, I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game several times, I've verified the files, I've turned off my firewall, I've tried skipping the error, I've checked task mangier to see if multiple copies are running, I even tried a fix someone posted using the command prompt nut nothing seems to work. I keep getting a message that tells me that steam if offline then I get kicked off the game. I don't know what else is left to try. I love the game but it's so frustrating not being able to play it anymore and not finding a solution anywhere in sight.
