We have tried pinging Steam Community website using our server and the website returned the above results. If is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Steam Community - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Having Problems with Accessing
Jason Triggs · 1 day 2 hours 29 mins ago

This is bonkers. For well over a month now, Steam Store & Community are down. Steam Support was very little help. In fact, Support had me delete all but a couple folders in the Steam folder so that it could redownload everything.

Didn't help at all.

I'm sure they know what the problem is, but refuse to acknowledge the issue publicly.

Will Corrigan · 2 days 47 mins ago

Gabe is probably too busy stuffing his fat ass with hot pockets and donuts to have his minions fix the servers.

Fin Suphasan · 2 days 49 mins ago

dead once again. once upon a time, f#!king steam dead everyday

Tyler Trant · 2 days 23 hours 50 mins ago

Im unable to play any online games, cant get on steam, and cant play any games that aren't even involved with steam, but I can still use the internet. can anyone help

Simen Terp · 3 days 11 hours 41 mins ago

An unexpected error has occurred. Your purchase has not been completed.
Please contact Steam Support.

What the heck, the store is always down. Im getting tired of this, the other users are getting tired of it. Time to try solve the problem?

Rick Lamm · 3 days 19 hours 39 mins ago

Going through my web browser, Steam takes forever to load - even giving errors from Chrome saying the page is currently unavailable. Through the client, I get error -113, but support has nothing listed for that error.

Jason Triggs · 3 days 21 hours 24 mins ago

Still having issues - Steam Store and Community have been losing connection for over 1 month now. Daily.

Patrick William · 19 April 2014 - 07:06

What's really aggravating is Steam blames my computer: "It appears that you are not currently connected to the internet or that your internet connection is not configured correctly for Steam..." What BS.

John Doeman · 18 April 2014 - 14:21

Goes down every other day now. Steam community has been screwy lately.

Riley Anderson · 14 April 2014 - 10:26

Down again. Noticed significantly slower speeds, then it died. Probably too many games being downloaded for Valve's servers to handle. They really need to upgrade.

Tyler Trant · 12 April 2014 - 13:48

Steams been down for me for a few weeks, can anyone shed some light on this

Wearn Qian Wen · 6 April 2014 - 07:46

lol. now i cant even visit steam webpage. while when i change my internet line, i can get in==..any1 getting this?

Jason Triggs · 6 April 2014 - 07:07

Steam store & community have been down a lot, since mid-March 2014. Glad to see it's not ISP related, but Steam itself having issues.

Yang Weng · 4 April 2014 - 17:21

Steam Store and Community are down for me for the last hour. I can ping them but cannot reach them in Firefox. "IsItDown" reports all is well - oddly.

Jose Torres · 1 April 2014 - 18:37

Too bad they don't get any money from me =} I pirate all my games so f#!k them

Kevin Harris Benjamin Sullivan · 1 April 2014 - 18:07

You realize its steam regular tuesday maintenance right?

Michael Elliott · 1 April 2014 - 16:14

Steam is down for me as of 5 mins ago and I see others are having the same issue

Rainer Wahnsinn · 1 April 2014 - 14:06

Smitty Werbermenjenson · 30 March 2014 - 15:54

Error -324 when trying to access my inventory. Get your shit together Valve.

Adz Don · 30 March 2014 - 06:33

It's been 3 weeks now, i can't login on steam, it's keep saying "Steam Servers are down!" or "Connection Timed out" My connection is perfectly fine i never had problem with my router, Steam are going beyond the limit. It's pissing me off

Adam Ritter · 28 March 2014 - 20:05

Steam store currently is not working. My internet connection is fine but all attempts to get on the store fail. I love how this freaking site always reports something is up even when it is down. I mean seriously your site sucks.

West Bronks · 26 March 2014 - 21:51

Steam servers are constantly down for the past week: Steam Error 101, Steam Error 118 Etc. I can't Acces my profile page - those steam error constantly appear every f#!king 5-10 minutes. Trading is nearly impossible, Accessing my profile options is nearly impossible. The only page that will surelly open is The Library page. Fix this soon !!! After the winter sale where now every f#cking weekend we eprerience trading probllems like errors and buggs this is way too much way too much. If not for the thousands of users please do fix it for yourself!! I repeat fix it because using steam for this past week is nearly impossible!!!

Nacho Huet · 26 March 2014 - 16:29

We're a group of 50 IL2: Cliff Of Dover Pilots playing an online campaing every wednesday 10:30 - 00:30. (CET+01:00) HRCODWARII
Sorry to say that this is the third time we're suffering your servers breakdown, forcing us to repeat the same mission every week... This situation is getting unaceptable... people is starting to leave the campaing.

Please, could you explain why the servers are being submitted for maintenance tasks?... 00:00 CET+1 is "working time" for online gamers...
Which is the real reason behind this issues?? Do you expect more server problems the coming weeks?..
Thx for your kind support.

Garrett Fuerte · 26 March 2014 - 16:10

People saying this is the first shut down in a while obviously haven't been playing recently. This this the 3rd time in my experience that it went down in the last 2 weeks! I'm not on much either with work. I know it's a free service... but it's still a SERVICE to us and you know they make percentages of games/merch sold so to that I say get your shit together.

Marshall Law · 26 March 2014 - 16:08

Looks like it's about time for better servers steam. You have too big of a following for what you're working with now.

Darren James Colbourn · 26 March 2014 - 16:05

Steam are you kidding me this is happening way too much sort yourself out

Habeel Kakakhel · 26 March 2014 - 09:07

Can't access my Steam Profile, Inventory, etc. Now enough is enough Steam, get your shit back together. This has been happening for the past couple of days.

Tamie Day · 25 March 2014 - 16:47

I can log in, but I can't trade. This is getting on my god damn nerves >:(

AT Winger · 25 March 2014 - 16:19

I cannot login to Steam right now ... several restarts --- it is unable to connect to my account

Miguel Mallet · 25 March 2014 - 14:48

Oh LmAo! yep, going offline with steam will get your library back and you can launch games, but even if your internet is on again, you cannot play online with any games if steam is down, . This is something I just learn while testing this. Now this, is plain stupid. Because steam is offline, I can't play my games online which, they are online and have no problem on their side. sti gang de malade reveillez vous Valve a marde

Nick La Thangue · 25 March 2014 - 14:34

@Matthew Collins
What the f#!k are you even talking about? You do realise when you use Steam, buy games through Steam. You're essentially paying for their FREE SERVICE, in which they allow you to access all your games through one organised library (also being able to add non-steam games, also allowing you to use a handy overlay, which makes it easier to access talking with friends. I say again. FOR FREE). It's like you're complaining about a bookshelf for being crooked once in a while when it houses your books? (See I made an outrageous comparison just like you did with the f#!king house and Craigslist)

Steam didn't get to the top of its "game" (pun), just for being crappy did it? If anything its leading pc gaming into a new generation, all that shit with Uplay etc are just trying to copy it because they didn't get the memo of how handy it was to have all games under one launcher. And even so. The Uplay launcher (Assassins creed reference) is shit, it couldn't even save my game on the cloud. The beauty of Steam is you can access it at any computer, and get your games you've already bought at the cheap cost of NOTHING (just your soul).

PS, you wont win that legal battle against Steam. He'll drive your bills up so much you actually will HAVE to get your games through PB, then you can complain on that website too when they don't post a game you want yeah? Nice idea.
Quit complaining about complaining would you? Out of the millions of users on Steam. I don't think you're going to win this, or that legal bullshit case you got.
Services/games don't get popular because of how bad they are? Unless you bought WarZ, then I feel sorry for you. I fell for that too.

Miguel Mallet · 25 March 2014 - 14:04

Yeah, In Canada and this is the first time I'm getting this. I must be just lucky to log on whenever its not down but today it's just not working. Not just steam isn't logging in, game doesn't start either because it just stays to the little screen after double clicking my steam Icon, " Connecting Steam account: " game doesn't launch. I don't care if steam is down or I cant access the store or the community, but separate both things, Why the Fuck do I need steam to run my game? I understand to buy games, ok, but to Run it ? What the f#!k so, just because steam is messed up, means we cant buy AND play ? that's retard I'm sorry

Ok well, if you have the same prob, just unplug your internet cable, launch steam, and it will ask you if you want to launch and stay offline. After that, your library will open and then re plug your cable and you can launch games again. but not access store, install new games, forums etc..

Stathis Sethianus · 25 March 2014 - 13:56

Is really steam down today? Shit, I thought uninstall/re-install could work...

Ryan Curto · 25 March 2014 - 13:35

Not down in New York exactly, but the client is lagging like nuts.

Paramjot Singh · 25 March 2014 - 13:20

@Matthew Collins

Why are you even on here? Didn't you just repeat your self for everyone to stop affiliating themselves with steam and their products? Well this page is for steam users. You have no purpose to be posting your rants about how everyone should just pirate games. If you had even the slightest intellectual ability, you would know if everyone started pirating games developers would stop developing games due to no finances. Only retards with your uneducated brain on this topic would talk shit without having actually thinking.

And to the point where you talk about others complaining on the source and not trying to solve the issue. Are you retarded? You are the most hypocritical bitch I've ever seen. Talking about others complaining, yet you're complaining about others. Why not use your own ideology and solve the problem yourself by ignoring this page and the content on here. No one wants to read your Hypocritical statements.

Bryan Zhao · 25 March 2014 - 13:02

It's 1:00pm in California, and Steam is still broken. Dafaq Steam?

Matthew Collins · 25 March 2014 - 12:58

Everyone wants to complain but never do whatever it takes to get the issue they're complaining about Stopped!

I've said it before, I'll say it again now, and I'll say it again in the future:


For example I see so many stupid f#!king people actually downloading a free to play game through Steam instead of getting it directly off the site that made the game itself such as APB reloaded, Planetslide 2 and a few others. Look here people IF you have choice between Steam and the site itself. YOU CHOOSE THE SITE ITSELF.

If a game is on both Steam and another service (Such as Assassin's Creed IV, then you purchase it through the other service AND YOU STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM STEAM.

Sure you may no be able to play them online via normal means, but there are tons of other methods of playing online with a pirated game.

Quit feeding the source of your complaint, and then you won't have the problems you're complaining about.

But again of course people won't ever do whatever it takes to solve the problem and instead will keep feeding the source and continue complaining.

Paramjot Singh · 25 March 2014 - 12:51

Yah well its 12:51 pm here in california, and steam is still down, cannot log on >

Dean Brown · 25 March 2014 - 11:58

Different parts of the site have been up and down all day.

Shammara Blanchard · 25 March 2014 - 04:51

Yeah, no. It is down. The Store has been down since I woke up at 5:30 AM

Jessica Young · 25 March 2014 - 00:56

can anyone actually get on steam? one min its up the next is down the website says its up and running but i can not get it to stay up longer than like 20 secs and i want to play 7d2d so bad update today completely deleted my saved game that i have been working on for so long so have to compltely start over but cant even log in! So frusrated, I just want to play!!! Fix it please!!

Kyle Harris · 25 March 2014 - 00:15

Alright I keep dipping into Offline mode here and there but basically, hop into a game and just hope you're online when you're working towards an achievement.

Matt Buick · 25 March 2014 - 00:11

ok so got online with steam page is black client feels very buggy reguardless am able to play games now .. uk Scotland ..hope you guys get some luck soon nothing worse than being in the mood to play something you cant

Alex Mann · 25 March 2014 - 00:09

need to connect my humble and steam again and dealing with this bullshit. uber pissed right now.

Matthew Collins · 25 March 2014 - 00:03

@Junior Anderson
It's a Federal consumer rights product violation for ANY company that doesn't own something to interfere with ANY ASPECT of a product purchased by anyone.

Can you get into the store?
Can you gain access to anything in the cloud?
Can anything sync up to the cloud?
If it requires the cloud then nothing saves and you cannot gain access to anything.

If you cannot play a game exactly how it is while online, then it's actually cut off because certain functions of a game REQUIRE it to be online.

Offline/online isn't the same as being online.

Matt Buick · 24 March 2014 - 23:55

well my steam updated and is now locked on the login screen with login ghosted out only thing i can click is cancel

Junior Anderson · 24 March 2014 - 23:54

@Matthew Collins
I do not understand what u mean by cut off. because i can play all the games i have.
exception of dota 2 that can't connect, and i can install my backups for others gamers just fine. all the games keep working even if steam is offline

Matthew Collins · 24 March 2014 - 23:54

@Philip Sousie
In the USA it's illegal under the consumer protection laws. Which means the agreement you signed or agreed to means jack shit.

there is no agreement, TOS, EULA, or whatever that any business can come up with that even if you agree to it, gets around Federal US law.

Besides, the agreement doesn't say Valve has the authorization to stop you from playing a game because they feel like doing maintenance

But regardless, you fail to grasp that if Valve doesn't own a game it doesn't matter what the agreement says, the agreement for the game overrides anything valve comes up with. Valve is only authorized to SELL games they do not own..>That's it..They cannot prevent people from playing a game they do not own under any circumstance

And for the record I'm actually in a legal matter with Valve right now that I have the case won I'm just waiting for a court Date to win...Why i won the case is because US Federal consumer protection law says so.

It's a Federal consumer rights product violation for ANY company that doesn't own something to interfere with ANY ASPECT of a product purchased by anyone.

Mstr Vee · 24 March 2014 - 23:50

Yes, I totally see your point now. something about a house, and not owning something, insulting strangers and something about a spotted owl. Please use the down time to read your EULA -- if you don't like steam I know I for one would be happy if you quit using it. We both know, despite all your bellyaching, that your use of steam will continue... for whatever flaws it may possess, it is still the best entity around to do what it does. If you hate steam so much, vote with your dollars and leave the community. Once more I'll reiterate -- many of us would be thrilled to see you go.

Junior Anderson · 24 March 2014 - 23:43

Matthew Collins well even if steam is down i can play my games in offline mode, only dota 2 i can't play online, but left 4 dead 2 play just fine playng right now ( i mean playing left 4 dead 2 online when steam is offline)

Philip Sousie · 24 March 2014 - 23:42

Yup, complete legit argument with such censored wording. You must go to Harvard man! Besides, where is it illegal? Hmm? Do you have an education in Legal matters? No? Oh I thought so. As well, all of those "Third-party" companies sign contracts with Valve, granting them full permission to do as needed. SO, yeah, nice try, go home and masturbate some more, kiddo! You do well at it, I am sure! ;)

Matthew Collins · 24 March 2014 - 23:39

@Philip Sousie
I'm not angry with this situation, I'm just sick and tired of you stupid company Shills actually defending something that cannot be justified, then trying to derail the problem.

the bottom line that you need to get through your f#!king head is that If Valve doesn't own a games then they're not legally allowed to be pulling this server down bullshit under any circumstances.

And mother f#!kers like you come in and actually think this is ok for Valve to do to people...?

YOu relaly need to have a 3rd party entity just come down to your residence and tell you you cannot go in...and have them do that the same amount of times Steam goes down... Then maybe you'd get the f#!king concept.

You stupid f#!king Pretz

Matthew Collins · 24 March 2014 - 23:35

@Mstr Vee
NO Valve doesn't own the games and thus cannot be shutting down like this preventing people from playing games Valve does not own.

the back/Craigslist aspect is the same exact thing. it's showing you exactly how the situation is set up to get the point across. Craigs List doesn't own the house so they canot just stop you from entering it just ebcause they sold it. Valve cannot stop you from playing games they don't own just because they sell them.

And don't even bother trying to act stupid and pretend you don't get how these 2 situations are exactly the same. You have an entity involved that doesn't own something doing whatever they like just because they sold something. It doesn't belong to them so it's irrelevant why Steam is down Bottom line is Valve is stopping people from playing games they don't own. And again it's exactly like Craigs list preventing you from entering your house because they sold it.

Now quit being f#!king stupid and trying to defend Valve for this bullshit

Yustas Balberious · 24 March 2014 - 23:33

As for my side, the servers were quite f#!ked for 3 days in a row now. The connection was being lost and restored every 1-5 minutes yesterday, now it's down for a while. :S

Philip Sousie · 24 March 2014 - 23:31

Blame the company? Yes, indeed it is all their fault for the entire service going down. Had no idea that routine upkeep would make you this angry. Goodness, it is such a shame that people like you tow have the right to the internet. Had no idea liking an online comic automatically made someone a homosexual, too, good to know! Its always great to learn new facts from random plebeians on the internet! Have fun masturbating to your thoughts and dreams.

Mstr Vee · 24 March 2014 - 23:29

No it's not. I won't dignify further comments from you because of your ad hominem (which is the actual sign of a true idiot in an intelligent forum) but I will answer you this once. Your game matching service is not a house -- it's a service. Cable goes down, and so does steam. Doctors make mistakes or encounter problems that cannot be navigated and people DIE as a result. Steam encounters problems, mistakes or general maintenance and we don't die, we're inconvenienced. Grown ups learn to deal with disappointment. Since you insist you steal every game you can so you needn't depend on steam, your vitriol here is doubly mysterious. It's a good thing I'm well adjusted enough to not be ruffled by your garbage either. Until steam is up again, Less QQ and more Pew-Pew, good sir!

Anton Fredriksson · 24 March 2014 - 23:28

Why cant my steam connect with steam servers ??? i have internet connection but steam just wont connect!!

Matthew Collins · 24 March 2014 - 23:24

@Philip Sousie
People like you are complete f#!king idiots. You blame everyone but the company... You fail to grasp that this shouldn't be happening at all. Valve doesn't own a game just because they sell it.

Any game that Is not made by Valve, is not owned by Valve and thus Steam going down, and people not being able to play their games is something Valve really doesn't have the legal authorization to do.

So to put it into perspective, you buy a house from a bank, and then whenever the bank decides, they can just show up whenever they want and change the locks on your door for absolutely no reason or because the house down the street is a drug house and the back will only let you back in when they feel like it

Well this is the same concept.

Mstr Vee · 24 March 2014 - 23:24

I hate it when steam is down, but thankfully I'm well adjusted enough to realize that all services of the quality that steam delivers must navigate some rough terrain every now and again. I remember what life was like before steam. We don't want to go back there. Gaming with your friends has never been easier, and so far no services I've encountered can hope to compete with it. Origin? Riiight. Games for windows live? No thanks. Steam falls short of divinity, but not by much in my book.

Philip Sousie · 24 March 2014 - 23:19

Aw all the poo babies that are so upset about it being down, go resume what life you think you had and just wait, is it really going to kill you to wait about 30 minutes to an hour? No, so get the hell over it! Steam goes down once a week for routine server maintenance, so you can KEEP playing your games without glitches or errors. So, put on your big boy suspenders, cry your river, build a bridge and GET OVER IT!

Matthew Collins · 24 March 2014 - 23:14

3rd time in a week this has happened. which is exactly why I pirate any game that can only be bought on Steam. It allows me to avoid these constant and needless interruptions.

Mark Lazarev · 24 March 2014 - 12:05

>Steam comes back on
>Goes offline again for 'routine' daily maintenance barely a minute after
>Goes offline again after the maintenance
Good job, Steam.

William Tyler · 21 March 2014 - 17:25

Steam has commented that the servers will be down in the UK and some parts of the US for around 15 hours while they update the servers...

Casper Emil Vinther Svendsen · 21 March 2014 - 17:23

Stop bitching, yeah they are running some maintance or some error showed up, steam is still the most stable multi million online community! You are not even paying for it! If you were having a good time yes that's unfortunate but go do something else with your life for just about 30 mins. It can't really be that hard. Maybe instead you should be impressed, for how rare it is that steam is down and how quickly they get their servers up and running again.

Devin Pruden · 21 March 2014 - 17:10

"Hey, I'm steam. One of the most profitable retail game sales company on the net.
I'm sooo garbage that i cant provide a support phone number because no amount of man hours could provide support for all of my f#!king problems."

couldn't be more true! Steam is down for Ohio area as well. However some of my ARMA 3 server members got in awhile ago, but they haven't left game. So yeaa.

Xne Tka · 21 March 2014 - 17:09

Last time I ever buy a f#!king game from steam. Companies that create games stop feeding this garbage that is called steam. I buy a game to be able to play whenever I f#!king want and not whenever steam decides to work.

Melody H. M. Fung · 21 March 2014 - 17:06

Down AGAIN for the 3rd time this week. This is really sad. All the money they get and they can't do a competent job to do what they're paid for.

Tony Kuban · 21 March 2014 - 17:00

Hey, I'm steam. One of the most profitable retail game sales company on the net.

Matthew Munoz · 20 March 2014 - 19:01

Steam has been great to me up untl today. :l all my games got uninstalled and it will take days to get them back.. f#!k

Lawwill Cory · 19 March 2014 - 16:22

This happens after every DayZ update for me dammit and it always last so long. I want to play tonight I work tomorrow assholes.

Gareth Chamberlain · 18 March 2014 - 12:39

Steam was down flushing my DNS worked!

Exit Steam Completely >

Один Парень · 18 March 2014 - 12:06

The only time I can play is lunch time and it is down second day in the row. Thank you Steam for making me waste my money!!! IT'S TIME TO HIRE PROFESSIONALS, Jesus Christ!!!

Henry Shao · 18 March 2014 - 12:05

WTF STEAM IS DOWN AGAIN? Valve wtf? taking home truckloads of money and still can't even provide a stable server.

Ryan Mouk · 18 March 2014 - 12:03

Well Steam, once again your down. What does this make, the fourth or fifth time this week alone. Cant wait until I get a system that actually does what it claims to do, play games. Not sit around waiting for the next outage to occur.

Terry Holland · 17 March 2014 - 13:23

Working now @ 22:22 Finland Scandinavia time. Didn't need to do Dns Flush. Hopefully works for others as well :)

Luke Hutton · 17 March 2014 - 13:08

I've been able to log in and go online now so hopefully it's up and running for everyone :) UK time 20:08 pm

Theta Landers · 17 March 2014 - 13:07

steamstat is a better source. It will tell you what client/server/page is up/down. Right now the API is down so that's why the 'page' (steamcommunity) is being read as up while we can't log in.

Aaron Carter · 17 March 2014 - 13:06

Haven't been able to login for about 20 minutes now. Just got back on and seems to be working. Short temporary outage. Maybe someone tripped over a server plug.

Curtis Strandy · 17 March 2014 - 13:04

I wasn't able to log into steam over the past 20 min tho... After spamming my login info to log in it just let me in... Just keep logging in just keep trying... Servers not down just login servers buggy, hope this info helps

Iain MacMillan · 17 March 2014 - 13:04

clear your DNS cache... they have obviously had to re-route connections with different IPs if they keep getting attacked.

Louis Heemst · 17 March 2014 - 13:03

steam server are down here in the netherlands that is the 2nd time in 1 week WTF guys what the f#!k are you doing

This is exactly why game developers do not need to be going through Steam. People praise Steam and bitch at anyone that even remotely posts problems with Steam, but yet are the first ones to bitch when something like this happens.

If people quit buying shit through Steam game developers will stop using it.
Unless a game is made by Valve, then Steam doesn't belong being connected to any game under any circumstances. All Steam does is cause problems that wouldn't be there if Steam wasn't involved.

Steam please why are you offline in Sweden? I want to play games instead of doing homework :3 (skojar bara)

Lees Jon · 17 March 2014 - 12:58

Only had steam a few weeks it seems to be down often in the uk, dont understand why the game developers do it this way i wont be buying any more games through steam, there are other alternatives so if steam does go down my games are not in one place

Anton Cyklarn Heineman · 17 March 2014 - 12:58

Down in Sweden, nice condescending little note too saying it's all on my end... Yeah, right Steam. I pay for my games, but I expect to be able to play whenever I feel like it. If they don't fix this shit NOW I'm going on PB for all my shopping in the future. Steam's choice...

Rick Kerkhof · 17 March 2014 - 12:57

Just bought Planet Explorers, and Steam kicked me out. Damn. Oh well, hope it'll be back up soon :)
I wish people weren't so hysteric though, it's not the end of the world...

Ricky J Umayam · 17 March 2014 - 12:51

I just bought Total Rome II for the daily sale and then Steam kicks me out and won't let me sign in. Crap

John Moran · 17 March 2014 - 12:50

WTF STEAM?!?!?! Down again.. the one chance I get to pay without my 4 or 5 yr olds up my arse about getting a turn. You SUCK!!! Hang your bloody DBA'S!!! Other than that Happy St Patrick's day

Dave Manning · 17 March 2014 - 12:38

So, via the application I lose connection and then cannot sign back in, and yet it lets me sign in through my browser... *sigh*

Ben Holloway · 17 March 2014 - 12:35

steam is down in the UK and Germany at the minute. Works ok if you are on, but not allowing new people to connect

Christopher Jack Courtenay · 15 March 2014 - 14:50

i can log in but new users cant well anying my mate has a game and we cant play it as he not used my pc before

Olivia Oldmixon · 13 March 2014 - 14:35

i find it pathetic that steam goes down for like 3 hours and everyone starts reinstalling and pirating and raping and pillaging villages like calm down jesus christ you guys KNOW that you can play single player games on offline mode right ???

Matthew Collins · 13 March 2014 - 14:31

I Figured the Valve Defense squad would show up sooner or later with the same types of bullshit failed attempts at damage control with replies to posts they know absolutely nothing about, and change around what someone posts to fit their own agenda:

People should learn how to read/comprehend what they read before calling people retarded or making dumb ass comments about what valve does that's rare because What you're actually babbling on about how Valve doesn't pirate games isn't even close to anything I said.

For the record I very clearly said that Valve causes piracy when the IP block people from the Store...Not valve pirates games..Fucking shill.

Also to the assmeat that posted that bullshit about Valve IP blocking What you stated isn't relevant because Valve does IP BLOCK people, they still do it, and in the USA it's a felony. Reasons why aren't relevant nor is what you're saying...End of discussion on that.

Try comprehending what someone posts... Might make you damage control idiots actually succeed at something and become smarter.

Coty Snelling Rivera. You clearly didn't understand what he wrote AT ALL..
What he is saying as far as I could understand is that people are;
1-Paying for games on steam
2-Getting refused to play then game when steamservers are down OR getting IP-blocked cause they did something that they considered cheating in 1 or more of the steam online games
3-Getting mad and THEN pirating the SAME games that they bought on steam just cause they feel like they've been cheated by steam and their user's agreement.

In my own opinion, people should learn to read what they agree on more carefully instead of getting mad at what they have signed up for later. On the other hand not everyone bothers reading 1000 lines when they just wanna play a game, so I can totally understand those people as well.

Evan Gunar · 13 March 2014 - 14:01

after about an hour of trying to sign in, I keep getting the message saying "No steam connection available" I shut off my computer twice, rebooted my internet router three times and still no luck. About five minutes ago I was able to connect, but shit is taking for ever to load. Thanks Valve!!!

Max Aliyev · 13 March 2014 - 13:55

Made me update for 25+ min than wont connect to matchmaking after restarting steam i cant even log back in keeps giving me offline mode saying i should check my internet connection. DEAR VALVE THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH MY INTERNET CONNECTION, ITS YOU WHO BAD AT DOING YOUR JOB. Million of online players are out..

Coty Snelling Rivera · 13 March 2014 - 13:49

Matthew Collins, your comment was honestly the most retarded thing I have ever read in months, actually.
Valve has no connection to piracy, their games are not pirated. lol

Valve has the right to distribute any games from any company that allows them to distribute them (Thousands of companies go through Steam due to them being one of the largest PC communities to exist.)

You can't talk about hypocrisy and use it in your own argument either like how you're crying about Valve apparently doing piracy and then you commend people for pirating games. Wow, you're a moron.

Anthony Devianza · 13 March 2014 - 13:49

It seems to still be down in SoCal and even the website wasn't coming up until about 20 minutes ago, now the website is up but the client won't connect.

But well.. oh well.. at least I know I'm not the only one who can't connect.

Kamiel Foskey · 13 March 2014 - 13:47

Today and yesterday's problems do not seem to be network wide and do not seem to be Steam's fault.. Though not reported by the media, the network in general (as in the whole of the internet) in the US is having connection issues for long periods, where areas completely lose contact with each other or are suffering excessively long latency times.

It seams cleared up not but while it was going on, it was even affecting phone connections that use the internet as part of their path of connectivity, causing people to sound like they are breaking up or talking through a fan, or not being able to connect when the phone is answered at all.

Any rage at Steam yesterday and today does not seem justified as it is clearly one of the big companies that provide the backbone lines of the internet that are really causing the problems or it's some sort of excessively high bandwidth traffic being pushed through the backbones and drowning out the bandwidth. I just hope the media says something about it, since this is clearly the second day in a row it has happened in the afternoon hours by pacific coast times.

@Matthew Collins - Nice tirade, but posted in entirely the wrong place to post it, and if you are IP locked, there are ways around that, as long as you aren't actually banned, but being Banned and IP locked by Steam is extremely rare and usually has good reason to justify as a ban from Steam usually does not usually include an IP block or stop you from getting at your steam games you already own, or keep you from adding games from outside sources to your account, or even keep you from making a new account. What is does is blocks you from all the Steam Community access and from buying anything else from the Steam Store on that account. That's how MOST Steam bans work.

I got through to change my password, because I thought MAYBE I had forgotten it. And then it was down again. Fuuuuuuu
