Default Wtf

I tried playing a game of hl2 today and for no reason, it says it cant play offline cause theres no steam network installed. I sign on, click steam again and now it asks for my password, even though i've kept it saved, I put my password in and steam just freezes...nice....glad I got to put in that hour of gaming before I had to leave.

Steam is a steaming pile of BS.

I think most of us would agree that Valve needs to fix steam or loose it. 20 megs idle, 40 megs after you play a game....thats just bloatware for ya. Makes you wonder if they have a deal with Kingston.

The offline thing really ****s me, I must admit since I have the net 24/7 it's never worried me but recently my net has been down. How about I try to play some cz or some hl2. This is no less than a day after I signed in to play other games and it says cannot connect blah blah so I can't bloody play, that is beyond stupid.

My account is not accessible today, password is not remembered and when I say recover account, it says my account doesn't exist. I agree whole heartedly with all your Steam criticism.

Same problem here. Both my account and my sons are inaccessible. Cannot even play offline either.

Yeah i had a very fun night lastnight wanted to play some hours and the god damn server was offline.. this is so BS i cant even play while network is down. So basically if someone hacks valve and network is down 2 months no one can play since the stupid steam **** must first connect. I hate valve and i hate valve even more for creating steam.
