I don't have the best internet but it's the fastest available in my area of northern Wisconsin, and I've noticed that the Launcher will not show servers half the time unless I randomly connect to one that I have the IP of and close the game, then it'll show the list. But if I click on one of the servers, it'll show 0/12 or 0/24 players no matter how many are in the server, and the launcher will freeze for 3-5 seconds when I click on JOIN SERVER. My ping is constantly 120-180 on American servers, and 330-400 on European. I have no problems in other games with lag or high pings.

Anyone else have problems with the launcher not finding servers?

After latest update my Launcher shows only 8 official server.

I have ticked:
Show US Army Official Servers Only
Show Empty Server
Show Full Server

i have a problem with the darn thing crashing, which pulls me out of the game when it happens! but server list seems to work most of the time, its peculiar as sometimes it completely fine and others its struggling to find any.

i just hate how i have to double click a servername a few times to get it to actually respond and start loading the game. its not much of an issue, its just one of those niggles.

It freezes for only 5 seconds? Lucky you. Mine freezes for about 30 seconds or a minute while joining a server. And I have really fast internet.

Steam download location is set to Minneapolis, MN which is about 3 hours WSW of me.

While i rarely have the same issues you have, i jump around a little, if i have issues with Sweden, i try Denmark or Germany, i guess it comes down to server load and routing.
The closest location geographically isn't necessarily the same as the closest/fastest over the net.

You could also try something like Pingplotter, the free version is "hidden" a little bit further down the page.

Figure out the IP to the steam server and ping it for a while, look for extensive packet loss and abnormal latency.
