The Steam sale is like getting DDOS'd. You know it's going to happen but you can't prevent it.

There's no sound financial reason for investing into enough network and server infrastructure to face extraordinary load that's only going to happen once in a blue moon, such as the first day of the periodical Steam sale. They could buy something to handle the load, but then they'd be sitting on a fortune in underutilized hardware most of the time.

Is actually more often, each day of the sale, so is like 25 days of the year for around 2 hours, is been more than 1 hour of the sale and I still get errors....

But I agree, is not worth it....

They wouldn't have to buy the hardware. Rent it.

But it would still be financially stupid, seeing as how the average person will probably just refresh until it works.

i doubt there's much of an infrastructure set up for renting such expensive equipment

(and now we've reached the part of the topic where i have no idea what i'm talking about!)

But surely you could fix the issue by reversing the polarity of the network and creating a symmetrical uplink to the cybernet?

we'd definitely need to make sure we secure the dataports for our main motherboards first.
