CS Go having problem playing with friends

When starting a private game with friends I always get a white arrow cursor which prevents me from using my mouse (I have to kill cs go to get rid of it), my friends were getting this as well once they have joined the game.

The cursor appears right after the team was picked. I’ve read some post about hidden message of the day (motd), but neither clicking on hidden close button nor renaming motd.txt file helped.

    I think it’s the same issue as this known bug and apparently Steam support is investigating.

    So until then it seems like we’re playing with bots or community servers

    Ive run into this problem. The workaround is that you need one person to get in the game and he just has to invite you, you answer yes and you join him. Do this instead of using the friends lobby that is bugged right now.
