I want to not let people see any of the information about the server I'm playing on (to prevent things like DDoS attacks during a tournament) but it seems the only way to do that is to appear offline, but if I appear offline I can't be messaged on steam to organise things with the other players/organisers of the event. Is there a way to hide all the server information whilst remaining online and contactable?
If your profile status is set to private, you can remain online, chat, etc., and not have people join your games.
To do this, log into Steam, then hover over your username at the top, click
Edit Profile >
My Privacy Settings (on the right) > and set
Profile Status to
- My profile page (
http://steamcommunity.com/id/[my public id]/edit/settings)
- Experience: I have a friend who keeps his account private
