For some reason we’re being forced to connect to steams download servers to unpack the game, even though we’ve already preloaded the game and it’s sitting on our clients.
For that reason steams download servers are congested and most of us can’t get in.
What Steam is going to do to fix this is nothing… The servers will eventually decongest themselves as more people finish unpacking. It may happen quickly or it may take hours.
Once everyone’s done unpacking it’s the game servers that will likely either have massive queues or just continuously drop you.
