And then unlock it. Imagine that they release at time in 4 hours, I'll have 30 minutes only before leaving the computer. No I won't stay >1:30 am just to play a game, I have things to do tomorrow morging.

Why do you NEED to play it on the second it's released?

valve or the actual developers? Steam is just a pc platform, and as soon as the devs send the game to Steam, they will make it available.

I want the items before anyone else on my regular server.

This is actually a good point. It would be pretty cool to roll up in a server with unseen items, and be like "sup".

They already have sent it, actually.

To preload the game, the game needs to be encrypted to avoid people playing it early.
Then, upon unlock time, it needs to be decrypted when the user tells Steam to do so.

When the game has been in development right up until a couple of days before today, it's infeasible to allow a pre-loading time that'll definitely be flawless.

Oh whattt?! "In the first part of the patch the Iron Curtain was marked as craftable and could be found via the item drop system."

Because I payed $5 to play poker with the heavy, strongbad, and sam (pennyarcade guy was extra) and I want my sense of awesomeness in playing poker with them.
