Welcome to the forums and the game, simi!

Okay...I'll ask the fun questions.

Dialup or broadband?
Full version or demo?
What version?
If full version, have you patched the game to 1.59 or 1.6?
Can you play single games?
Updated yer drivers?
DirectX 9.0?
Video drivers?
What are yer comp specs? CPU, RAM, video card...
What server have you been trying to connect to?

Hmm...hope I didn't leave anything important out.

... and add the server & port into your firewall, it maybe causeing incredibly high lag (look at the reported ping on your TAB key)

sry ill explain..... if you have high lag in TM, and youre joining a server, you will hear the weapons going off around you, the treads will kick up dirt and much and smoke, but you will be suspended in mid air - this happens until all the games data is downloaded to your comp and all the crater info is applied to your map mid-game.

Usually its pretty quick tho, even on my terrible 400 ping.

I hate to think about what that says about my connection during the times when it has taken over two minutes.

Welcome, Simi.
Also, if you have downloaded any modded tanks that aren't on the server (or flags) then you can't successfully join most servers.
Good luck!

This has happened to me before. It happens whenever lag is really high, for me anyway. Try resetting your internet connection.

And welcome to the forums

I've heard that having your net rate set to high can cause problems. if you're on dial-up setting it to 3k may help(unless it is already there or lower)
