Steam staff need to rest also. So, they close the servers for awhile?

Biggest irony is that steam was getting into its peak hours and it broke down.

guys, don't anyone here notice how steam is more a problem than a solution? i mean game servers are OK, but when steam is down we cant play games, because we need to connect through steam... this is ridiculous how valve, such a big company can't think of redundant, high availability solutions...

a little problem occurs and all of a sudden let's question the whole system as faulty

You do realize that then people could then mod their Steam that they could own every game without paying and play them offline? In fact theres already modified clients.

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.

The biggest problem is that you don't actually own any of your Steam games. You accepted Steam agreement that says so and Gabe can take all of your games and close your account for no reason at all.

That's why you don't "buy" any games on Steam unless they are multiplayer or on sale.

True, but you still have to agree to their bullshit if you want to play any of their games. Imagine that in future some dickhead becomes head of Valve and decides to delete people's entire library because they said or did something he or mods didn't like. (Just look at Tortanic, people get banned for saying something wrong on forum or farming in game.)

You would be surprised to realize the same goes almost for every other recent game out there, at least for AAA titles, even if you didn't bought them from Steam. The EULA always states things like "the BIG GAME COMPANY NAME HERE grants you the rights to use the software for the following blablablabla and the BIG COMPANY can revoke any right at any time. When this happens, thou shall remove the software from your computer and never ever try to install it again.

I know that some of those EULAs are technically impossible to enforce for single player games delivered via CDs or DVDs, but from the legal point of view, almost every game and software is the same of games acquired by steam.

You could always say: I don't play games by Valve, problem solved. But the real problem with that is that many games that get released require steam these days even if they are from other developers.

It's not only Steam, all those modern anti-piracy anti-user rights multigaming platforms are like that. And games independent of such platforms get more and more rare.

On the other hand, I really enjoy buying a game and having it available immediately after a short download. It also has advantages.
