  • Steam DDoS

    This evening, from Steam's forums:

    Steam is currently the target of a distributed denial-of-service attack, and consequentially, some services are sufferring outages.
    www.steampowered.com/forums

    FanTASTic. Never before have I ever played an online game that was so regularly unavailable. The sad part is that nothing about the game itself (Half-Life) is what makes it unavailable.

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

    No forums, either.

    Check out yon graph:

    which also states that Steam is online, btw.

          Don't forget the fact that they are constantly trying to break 3rd party anti-cheat protection (namely CD) with every steam patch....

                NEVAR!!!!

                :)

                But yeah, Steam is sucking about now. No doubt this DOS was either planned to happen at the same time, or is in retaliation against the closing of the WON system.

                Either way, games are sucking since no one is playing. I finally got in by starting Steam in offline mode (I didn't think it would let me join a game in offline mode, but it did) but the game sucked so bad that I only played 3 rounds and we called it quits (it was only some 2v2 games, and one of the people did nothing but TK and shoot his own CC... ocasionally he would shoot in the general direction of the other team... I don't think I ever got killed by him when he wasn't on my team..).

                Can't wait till Steam is back up and functional so we can get the quality back up!!!

                    Well, it let me get to a login screen this time, but still not letting me past it...

                    Can't even get into offline mode anymore!

                      LoL,

                      That's the problem I had last night. I had to "Exit and Logout" of steam and re-login and that let me in the games.

                      Now I can't even login though.

                          Well, it wasn't me and it wasn't them...

                          After waiting and constant trying, suddenly Stupid and I were both able to login to Steam and NS at nearly the exact same time, and were quickly joined by at least 4 or 5 others, and had a full server within 15 minutes.
