Steam status?

Yeah, I can't get on either. Although, I have a hard time believing that it's due to a 4 year old game being offered for free...

I've been through A LOT of Steam Sales in my day, and I've seen them get slammed before. However, in those other instances, you could eventually get the store to load if you refreshed enough. Now, it just plain fails to load after trying for over a half hour. I'm thinking something else is going on...

free L4D2, new accounts to buy the game to sell the cards... rinse, repeat.


So somebody can make a couple bucks? I don't Steam cards, they're never worth anything and more people sell them so the value is even lower than before.


The cards were selling for like 20 cent a piece prior to the free game, I wager after the free game give away they'll sell for under 10 cent if not some of the cheapest cards on the marketplace. Like someone else said though, this seems like something worse than just a free game, this smells like a DDOS attack or worse a full fledged hack.

It's down for me. Error 118. I'm assuming everyone's downloading Left 4 Dead 2, which are swamping the servers.


No, its just people going to the store page. Downloads work just fine.

I'd like to get it. Hopefully it doesn't disappear before I can connect to the servers. :(

It's not a DDOS, if it was downloads would be stopped as well. Its just the store page getting overwhlemed by people trying to get a free AAA game and one of the best zombie games ever.
