the waiting time for a response from the server has expired
I go into the game, I go to the first server that comes along, but instead of starting, he writes to me that the waiting time for a response from the server has expired
@Dimasus sort the servers by ping and try connecting to different servers with the lowest ping.
Make sure to take your time to read all of this carefully and do it properly and if it still doesn't work reply here by mentioning any antivirus or firewall installed on your PC.
Also note that slow internet speed or too high ping could be the cause of this. You should also check that your router doesn't have a strict firewall, speed limitations set on your PC etc.
