Then don't let it take all weekend

Valve has already thought of this. Not only do you get it free all weekend, but you can preload it all week so it will be ready to play when the weekend comes around. Just click the preload button off the link and you won't have to worry!

This is a nice move by the bastids, specially since my CE version was castrated w/o DoD :(

Ha ha from what I hear DOD:S appears to be dieing down. I think giving everyone a free weekend is an attempt to get more people interested in the game. If all the regulars don't play then how are we supposed to know if it's worth the buy? You should play. And better than that, post good servers so us freeloaders know where to play too :D

i agree with the dying down. they had to do something to pick things up. the great thing for them is Steam is an easy way to run promos like this.

Best maps are dod_donner and dod_flash (haven't tried the newly released kalt). They have great back-ally action. Here are some servers that ping great for me (Ohio) and are usually busy:

8.9.5.32:27015
69.31.6.36:27015
72.36.222.214:27015
72.36.222.214:27015 <-- apparently with Bots now. may want to avoid.
