    This is kinda getting ridiculous. If it was down for maybe an hour or so I would understand, but it REALLY is taking much longer than that.

    When Steam went totally down that one month recently and everybody save for about 20,000 people lost connection to steam it was down for less time than this.

    Yeah, seems like some servers down the river are down and only a few people are getting the servers that are still up.

    There's like 6 other game updates that have been released today in addition to the TF2 one. Who thought this was a good idea?

    I have no clue how the valve servers are run, but I think it's strictly related to Sniper Elite. I'm downloading any other game at 2.5mbs constant.

    Except nobody can get in. There's no "queue" for downloading. How can the servers be overloaded if nobody can get in?
    it's not my fault all you guys are doing is hammering the "download demo" button and breaking the servers

    I'm pretty sure there's nowhere near enough people clicking the button to kill the servers.

    No, it's valves for not having better server infrastructure because like I said this is hardly a new or uncommon occurrence.

    Considering that Steam handles over 4 million users daily, and only 2.5 million people are online, I highly doubt the servers are being overloaded by people clicking a button.

    With all that cash, you'd think Valve would be sufficiently prepared for something like this...

    Obviously not because this happens almost every single time there is a high profile release of some kind. Granted it usually doesn't last more than maybe a hour or so and I don't think the servers have ever been tanked to the point of total interoperability during such an event. Just slow speeds or brief connection issues.

    Edited:

    Nope, it's down.

    I don't understand Russian (also don't know if it is legit) but Google Translate says the NCF can be downloaded by torrent half way down the page. Someone would have to register on the site.

    The thing that boggles my mind. When was Sniper Elite V2 ever a big release? Maybe I'm blinded by the Rockstars and Infinity Wards of the world though.

    The demo was nice, but hory shet the nazi guards have superhuman eyesight.

    You are supposed to press steambackup file (don't know what it is, probably an exe) and then steam will use it's restore function
