It is nigh impossible for a server(s) to never crash. Shouldn't take more than a day to fix. So go busy yourself with something else in the meantime. Perhaps youtube, wc3 dota, or anything else you might have available.
Yes, it does seem like an eternity when you want to play, but the servers are screwed up (even the item server for tf2) but it will pass. Getting angry at he system wont do anything. They have their reasons for the current setup, ie anti hack, anti piracy stuff etc.
