Why is Steam so praised? It goes offline all the time...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Getting top scores in multiplayer games, when all of a sudden BOOM kicked out of server room, why? Because Steam has gone done for a 2-3 min reboot and it has been consistent this way for a decade now...

Seriously, why does Steam get so much praise as a good company, I just don't get it, they ruin entire gaming experiences for me when the timing is just wrong, like when it went down 3 minutes ago as of this posting in Indiana at least.

Problem might be for you perhaps. I honestly never have a problem in Steam...

Never happened to me. Steam has its flaws but nothing of big significance or annoyance.

I found out it is every Tuesday when they reset the Steam servers in my region, just super bad timing as I happened to be kicking major butt in an online game when it happened... oh well, not a big deal.

Pretty much been like that since the beginning, but it shouldn't kick you out of servers. It'll disconnect Steam text/voice chats and other stuff, but not from game servers.

Eeeeeh? steam goes offline? been using steam for like 10+ years and this have never ever happend to me, not even once. But then again never had any issues with steam, maybe because I am in a different time zone so they do "that" when im sleeping

Also 10+ years. Never happened once to me. I could understand that being frustrating though.

I get disconnected every once in a while but it's my crappy internet's fault.
