So as the updated rolled out, it added a item server connectivity indicator to see if we still have connection to the item server or not when inventory suddenly dies.

As you can see the indicator shows that connection is there, but items both in inventory and store are nowhere to be seen.

The way i can reproduce this effect, is either when i launch the game, turn it off and cycle like that 2 or 3 times.... Or if i play any different game in my library (for an hour or so) launch kf2 later and inventory will be like this.

This happened when my game chocked on launch (by that i mean it froze during loading for a bit and then came back)

This time the item server connection is in red 0... and yet all my items are available, and i can use store no problem... even after playing a match the items did drop for me.

I think the issue is a misconception of what this indicator does, connection to Item (TWI) Server is not connection to Steam Inventory. Item server is the server that delivers items when you craft I suppose.

Maybe it is completely broken which would not be a surprise regarding the last updates on TWI games recently.
