I actually don't mind the delay. Delaying stuff is one of those characteristics that make Valve so human.

This is also a reason for which I try not to rely on other people.

just a question about the current sale on MW2. Since Steam is down and I can't make my purchase right now I'm worried that the sale will be over by the time the store is back up.

Any word on extending the time of the sale so I can purchase the game before it ends?

Why would you waste your money on the hack-infested, horrible matchmaking MW2, when Black Ops is due to be released 11/09/2010? That date is also the date MW2 will die, by the way...

I enjoy playing it, when there's a game without an aim-botter, and everyone actually has decent pings. Hopefully this Steam update will fix the "unable to connect to host" issue all of us are dealing with as well...

MW2 will not die on that date
why do people say that, surely people will buy the new one, but that doesn't mean it will die.

why do people say that, surely people will buy the new one, but that doesn't mean it will die.

Most people say that because FPS gamers will want to move to a game with dedicated servers, which inherently offer a better connection, better ping, and in some cases, good server administrators.

The store does not work. You can browse it (most likely because the store is on a more secure server) but you cannot add items to your cart or use the checkout.

FU steam biggest pile of crap ever. why did MFW2 just have its own dedicated servers? instead we get stuck with steams ever lasting bull crap.

I agree with some of that.
I love steam my self BUT (and this is a big but) You have to change it so if your doing maintenance (which i understand every server needs maintenance) you can still access and play games like MW2.

You really need to change that system, Yes dedi servers would help in this case but you can also help it by not tieing it down to steam community, which would help.
This is something which i am sure all gamers would like to see change.

Wow, what a great voice of reasoning. I'm suddenly all better now.
Listen, you tool. There are dozens of your kind of people who try to sound like they're cooldudes that don't really care about video games and try to be some paragon on video game forums. If you're so damn cool, go be cool somewhere else. This is a nerd gaming website, and this is a thread where they complain. I personally don't care about the downtime; I'm just chillin', honestly. Laughing at impatience. But I am tired of people like you passively insulting the majority of this community.

In other words:

You'll prolly find that somewhere in the EULA you've agreed that they hold no responsibility to provide you with what you've paid for in some way or another. I'm not gonna read it but I'd bet potatoes it's in there.

I love all of these children who have never held service jobs, probably let alone jobs in their lives complaining. "It's my game and I want it now". Well, you had better call JG Wentworth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX0fIi3H-es) because the downtime is an estimate on a repair, and grownups know that means it's done when it's done. (And a couple hours is reasonable on a server that connects millions and millions of users every day)

Kinda makes you wonder why we pay full price for a product we don't actually own. I mean, I fully understand we're playing it in it's entirety but the thought that one day, who knows when, the service will be pulled and we'll lose access to our (numerous) games makes me cringe considering how much money I've invested in products through steam.

Ok ladies:
all servers are now boot into the online mode. Some need more time - some needs lesser...

the 10 AM update just tell us, that on 10 AM EVERY server will working fine - friends or community servery are OF COURSE smaller than download-servers or game servers.
So: OF COURSE, the (for example) game and/or downloadservers need more time!



You DO realize that's exactly what we thought an hour ago?
