    this happens when you have no connection to the lobby server. Either means that the servers are down, your client is out of date, or there is some networking issue that you have that is stopping you from getting a connection to the server.

    Sometimes they do bring the servers down for various reasons, whether its a brief hotfix, whether they are investigating a bug, or there was an exception in the java(assuming they are written in java for stability) the server was written in that effects the state of the server that needs to be rebooted.

    Also you can expect to see this whenever they release a new patch, usually every thursday around 5pm PST, but since tomorrow is an american holiday its possible they might be doing it now.

    edit: just finished a game, and restarted my client, the server is not down, if you are still experiencing this issue you should try a few things, including rebooting your machine 3 times, checking your internet connection, getting a list of server IPs and doing a tracert, or try just restarting steam.
