Is Steam down?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just wondering if steam is down for everyone else or just me? Im logged in but the store gives me error -118 (unable to connect), and the steam community is unavailable. Is this due to extreme traffic?

I'm not loading either... must be a little maintenance or something.

I read a thread here on ocn a little while ago that they were giving away left for dead 2 for free.

And since that, Steam has been unreachable.

Good job Steam. Give something away and kill your sales because nobody can get to your site.

Probably the demand of L4D2.

Because of the sale. This happens twice a year (once for the summer sale and once for the winter sale).

Yeah, I've had Steam running for days and just a bit after the news item about giving away L4D2 for free appeared the site went from sluggish to dead. Since then I was only able to access the store once, despite trying repeatedly.

The steam community is shot, I can't look at my profile, friend's profiles, or my activity feed

Their servers are getting bombarded after the free L4D2 offer. That's what's going on.
