Default Counter Strike : Source is now LIVE!

Just so you guys know the Valve servers are now allowing you to apply the final update to play Counter Strike: Source. Next thing we know we will be doing the same thing with HL2

steam is a pos. they bragged and bragged about how it could handle this and that, and it cant even handle a beta ....ridiculous. Hey..steam sucks....guess that means they need to delay HL2 till 05?

Wouldn't suprised me if a group was DDOSing them when they released CS:S, just to get people more pissed off at Valve. That's what they did when the WON servers (and CS1.5 along with it) were taken down, what better opertunity to "get back" at Valve for taking down the WON servers?
