Then either you hacked or used a skin that contained a hack.
Steam fails at trying to load games...everytime I tried to play a game, it would either crash or have an error....or both, then shutdown my computer.
Not always true. My low 6 digit got banned for hacks. I've never hacked, I don't trust that they don't have a backdoor or keylogger or something. I've never used a script. The only skin I've used is CPL GUI.
I personally have no problems with steam, been using it for 2 yrs now.
i really dont see why you all hate it.....
same here i love cs but steam itsself is pretty bad lots of stuff that goes wrong with me sumtimes but overall i like it alot
yeah, you're probably right; except for the friends system, that is pretty bad. also, i dunno if it is just me, but my "Favorite Servers" is never working :blink:
I don't hate it, i just dont like the fact that you cant play games in offline mode, cause i was without a connection for like a month, I would have atleast liked to play CZ bots or soemthin T_T....
I have 2 steam accounts (1 now..). Been playing Counter Strike 1.6 for about..3 years now.
I never really did like steam. The interface..that ugly green. Yea I can change the skin but it gets uglier.
I eventually for Christmas last year got a new steam account and sever new games(0'5 Christmas)! I was excited! I got Counter Strike Source, Half Life 2, and a few others. I fired up steam and almost hurled when I saw the source interface. So ugly and clunky...had so many problems
First I would try to join a game..I would double click on the server list a server to join. AND NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN. I mean what the ----, I double click the goddamn server, according to the law of clicking on ----ing links it should open, but no. I right click "join server", still doesn't do ----. What the ---- man.
Sometimes I Would click the server name about 5000 times and finally it will start to connect magically, because I guess you need to click it 5000 times or some ----..then I wait about a minute for it to connect to the god damn server, to find out that every single player in the game is in spectator.
I mean what the ----, I look at the server list, 20 people in the game. Oh cool, I think I will join. Its ----ing bots on spec...I mean what the ----..I just wasted 5 minutes clicking the server 5000 times, and 1 minute for it to load to find out, its me verse nobody.
When I finally get to play CS:S it sucks dick(not related to steam, but valve). So whatever...steam sucks.
I mean the ----ing friends list feature BARELY works, sometimes my controls would randomly reset to the defaults..What the ---- is that ---- man..I didn't do that, I guess either some guy at Steam gets paid to log onto my account and reset my controls to the default to ---- with me, or I got high and changed them myself.
So over the course of a year I buy some more games..DOD:S...CS:CZ...etc..Ive poured mabye...at least $150+ into this one steam account, game wise.
So one day, a normal day, about the 5000050603th day Ive had steam, I decide to play some dod:s. I open steam, try to login, what the flying ---- my account has been disabled. I mean, I didnt disable the account, so Steam must of did it. Why?
After I wasted 20 minutes looking for the god damn "make a new support ticket" button (I swear to god they ----ing hide the thing so you cant ask questions) I make a ticket requesting to know WHY THE ---- MY ACCOUNT WAS DISABLED.
After about 5 days I finally get a response from some robot, or what they claimed is a real person. I guess people like to talk like robots now, because I had made a ticket back a few months, and had gotten the same reply. Something like "Try setting up the email to this blah bl;h"...okay thats no the ----ing problem, I cant even get in my ----ing account. I reply.
5 more days later I get ANOTHER bull ---- robot reply.
Finally after about 2 weeks Im furious. My support ticket has foul language and attitude written all over it.
Somehow we never resolve it.
My account is gone, deleted, for no reason.
I told them:
Give me my account back. Give.
They ask me for proof...what the ---- proof...I mean come the ---- on is it not more obvious that the ----ing emails are the same and names and everything I mean christ.
I ask for a number to call, this online ---- is no good. No number. WHAT THE ---- COMPANY DOESNT HAVE A NUMBER TO CALL FOR SUPPORT. I WANT TO YELL AT SOME ARABIAN INSTEAD OF TALK TO A ----ING ROBOT. I mean what the ----, give me a god damn number you lazy pieces of ----ing ----.
There it is, $150+ down the drain, ---- YOU STEAM
In my next rant: Steam and pop up ads!
Steam is pissing me off now as well.
When I try to jump into a server for source, my latency jumps up into the 1,000 and my entire wireless connection drops. Kicking me from mIRC, xfire, and MSN IM - requiring me to get off my ass and restart my internet router.
It started working fine after almost a year, a few days ago, and has now resorted back to the original issue.
The friends list is a joke, and the favorite servers list wipes every few days if your lucky, sooner if not. Thank god for xfire!
^^and I thought I was the only having those problems, source tends to be laggy everytime I play it online, even my 1.6 is starting to do it already, I walk through the door, 5 secs lag, next thing I know, I'm dead.. customer support is crappy as ----.. why can't they be like EA link
Oh yea the sever list too...jesus christ Steam blows
Well this is kinda like with the xbox 360, some people have had absolutely no problems, others have gone through 3-4 consoles cos they broke or something.
steams fine :S except the offline mode part and taking 530 years to load a game and the friends list and the favourites wiping out.. its alright
well, i occasionally dont see my fav's (server) and i dont even use the steam friends thing LOL, i pretty much just use xfire (xfire also keeps track of your fav servers/recently visited)
