    Yeah, xfire is great, if you havent downloaded, well download it now. The only bad things I've ever had with steam is my fav servers not appearing for one whole f**kin week.

    Takes me about 30seconds to load a game with 32 people, if it takes you that long generally means your pc suck balls.

    30 secs to DL any maps/ decals/sounds/etc that you dont have?

    but i think he means the time to DL/install games on steam takes forever.

    I think he means the actual game of cs, not individual server games.

    The bot spectators are the communitys fault just right click and view the people in the server if they all have 0 there bots...... The support ticket is usually a robot at first that I guess picks up key-words in your ticket and responds with a message and then you just send a message back or something and its a guy. Atleast thats how it was for me.

    often they are just people who joined before school/work. as the server is often busy later on and joining might pose a problem alot of people just join in the mornign and leave there pc's on.


    some parts of steam are ------ed. agreed. but if it would be perfect it be boring. i guess the account banning is a build in feature sort of like gambling :huh:

    1) the weekend with the power outage at valve
    2) favorites deleting themselves
    3) history that never works
    4) do we really need a steam friends system?, just go and get xfire :P

    Never had a problem with Steam, Been using it since its started on Counter Strike 1.6, Much improvement since then, I still play it, and still Enjoy it. But I've gone over to other Games lately such as:

    America's Army
    BattleField 2
    Call Of Duty 2

    More fun when playing other Games, instead of the same one each time!

    Oh yeah on Steam I got:

    Counter Strike 1.6
    Counter Strike: Condition Zero
    Counter Strike: Source
    Half Life 1
    Half Life 2
    Day Of Defeat
    Day Of Defeat: Source
    All Half Life Mods
    Alot Of Half Life 2 Mods, Such as Garry's Mod < Fun! =]
    Alot More Aswel! =]

    I don't know if you've notice, but lately Steam well Valve have had alot of other Games advertised on there System, such as Call Of Duty 2? :S What Valva Done, bought Activison out?

    no i actually think activision (and other developers) are paying steam to add thier products to the DL and run system.

    Xfire is garbage, takes up too much RAM, its pretty much pointless, I sure as hell dont care how many hours you wasted of your life playing world of warcraft
