    If you're like me, you have been having some serious issues with Steam recently, especially with connecting to Steam at all.


    A pair of hackers have claimed responsibility for launching the DDoS attack on Steam, on the final day of the Holiday Sale, while the Origin attack was unrelated (but who cares about Origin :devil:) . However, both have had some obvious connectivity issues as of late.

      Yeah i also have some connection issues going on, on steam i also saw this on a danish side.
      They said it has something to do with personally reasons and stuff..?
      But not sure about it www.ekstrabladet.dk is a pretty dumb side normally, yet i still use it... XD

          It's probably "DerpTrolling" Ddosing again. They managed to shut down Runescape, WoW, Riot, GW2, Eve and more for several hours.

            lol Like I said before, I rarely buy games from Steam anymore. Their sales are mediocre at best. Steams best sales are average compared to Amazon's daily deals. Most of the 150+ games in my library are from either the Humble Bundles or Amazon or Gamefly.
