Wow, I can tell how interesting it's been with all those details you provided about the breakage of Steam.

Seriously though, I don't know what happened to Steam. Care to elaborate?
. . . methodical, exacting, and worst of all, patient.

Basically the mass amount of users playing DayZ ended up breaking Steam Authentication somehow, so steam servers for several games went completely down. DOTA for example has gone down because of the problems (supposedly. It may have actually been a Steam issue with DayZ being the main victim) caused by DayZ.

Ya, even though DayZ has like a twentieth of the amount of Dota 2 players, it was obviously DayZ that broke Steam.
What's a sig?

Any links showing it was DayZ that caused the issues?

Probably because no one noticed because it was quick. Steam is a great service.

I'm pretty sure the servers in DayZ are handled the same way as Arma III handles servers so steam isn't connected to this at all.

This. It just happens to support the steam overlay and stuff. The servers are handled by several other companies.

Actually, Steam is so tired of lame zombie crap that it tried to commit suicide.
