Steam support... About as supportive as Gabe Newell's office chair at this point

ValvE still makes some pretty awesome games.

Also, in L4D2 the 1st-person shotgun reloading animation lacks the character pumping the shotgun after reloading.
Andy F. (2 years ago)
ValvE has been too lazy with details in their games and too few people notice! In L4D2 shooting off an enemy's limb causes blood gushing but no blood appears on the ground. In TF2 decapitated corpses look unrealistic, as if someone in Gmod used the deflater tool on a ragdoll's head, and the weapon reloading animations could be way better. In Half-Life 2 the alien blood decals are tiny and when you gib an antlion there's barely any blood on nearby surfaces, whenever you hear flowing water in a map there's rarely any actual water (a perfect example of this is in the shower area in Nova Prospekt), it's possible to kill a Headcrab by throwing a cardboard box at it, you can't have more than four allies following you at one time, and all the vehicles and dead Striders in the later chapters don't mix very well. Tyler Mcvicker, please help make both ValvE and the community aware of this so ValvE doesn't make the same mistakes with Source 2.

Yes they are working on HL3, it can't be otherwise. Only a completely insane person would let such reputation go to trash by abandoning HL3 development. I think Valve is heavily understaffed and that is the main problem. They should open new offices.
steam support only helps getting tf2 items back k

Why would they give the community a chance to overhype their games or give them a chance to whine like the bitches, some of them are, when or if they don't get released. Also my experience with the Steam support when my sisters account got hijacked was quite good. They just asked for photo evidence of one of the games cd key's and shortly thereafter she got her account back.

On my old account, I was reported for scamming. This guy and his friend set me up. It was my birthday and this guy gave me some items as a gift, and said I could keep them. Later he asked if he could "borrow" them and I said I couldn't trade right now I'm in the middle of something. So he said he'll report me if I don't, I didn't see the message at the time. So then later I went to my profile and noticed I got reported for scamming. All the proof they had was the message saying "I can't right now." They said I blocked then after even though they blocked me. GG :-/.

I belive tht Valve is experimenting with a lot of things (gaming wise). Because that they have no problems with money (steam cash macine) they can take all the time in the world just to experiment with new game ideas. When they will find somenthing that is worth releasing they will release it. And i belive they are waiting for VR. And because their games where stolen before they will not say anything about any game they might have in production.

With steam support I sent a message asking for a older update to hl 2 as a PC I have can't support new updates, after 4 months of waiting, they told me to do things such as reinstall steam etc, it's not steam that's the problem, it's the CPU not being supported!

If you're VAC banned, then you were cheating. VAC Scans your game folder, and if it detects a modifcation of the files, then it will VAC ban you. Overwatch on the otherhand... PS: Not Steam's fault that you didn't change the E-Mail for your Brother's account. If they allowed you to regain an account if you don't have the email, everyone would have their accounts taken over. Pretty sure Steam even tells you to remember your password

Ugh.. its like Valve is like CA, they both make good games, but are shit and slow about releasing them, and always do in-game purchases. DLC's for Total War, and cosmetics for Valve games. wish some fucking nice company just bought them two..

Lol VAC has been outdated for years, and on rare occasions it bans the wrong people. I don't see them fixing a problem with hackers for a while.

I know that I am late, but this could save your brother's account. If you reinstall Windows, then the old installation will be saved in WIndows.old. From there you could copy the Steam directory or at least the ssfn file.

Valve will probably never make any more games. They don't need to. They don't care. They just want money. The only reason they'd ever make any more is of course, more money. Valve will never be honest with fans. Have they ever been? Not really... Valve will probably not announce anything anytime soon. Look at the past few years. They've earned a reputation, and essentially created an infinite money machine with Steam and CS:GO. Valve will probably never improve VAC. It's a complete piece of crap to the point where hackers can admit they've been hacking for months. Oh look, Source 2. Whoopdeedoo. The only reason they update their 2 biggest multiplayer games is because they make more money. They're you're carbon copy company. End goal: Make money. They saw potential in the game industry so they made games. To make money. They make steam machines. To make money. They have huge sales. To make money. In a decade they'll have dominated most of the video game market, the only other competitors being Nintendo, Microsoft, and MAYBE EA, Bethesda, or Sony.  They're noticably awful in so many ways. If only I didn't love them so much.

How to fix these problems. 1. Valve works on a philosphy that its easier, and cheaper for both them and the consumers to just update and expand the games they already have. Rather then make a whole new game. I could care less if they finnaly count to 3. But thats just my opnion 2..Hackers are becoming a BIG problem. LMAObox is just running wild. Where as decade old VAC just cant catch up with it. They need to update VAC. Provie IP bans rather then acount bans. Alllow for easier reporting. Etc. 3. VNN said it all 4. The easiest thing for vavle to do is just delete all the refined in the game. Sure its lazy. But its reallly the hard reset. Which at this point, is the only solution. That, and i say when you craft weapon, have a 10% chance of it being strange.

Valve really needs to fix the vac and support. About half a month before i got VAC banned for nothing and then i tried to send a support ticket to get help and valve proceeded to fuck me in the ass with a train. Gee thanks Valve

I don't blame Valve for the huge time with no HL3. The hype isn't dying off, the hype is HUGE right now. I know Valve wont put out a shit game, especially with Half Life. Imagine how hard it will be to make a game that can outshine Half Life 2, and not disappoint. Valve really cares about Half Life. Also, imagine how hard it will be to make good levels, good story, and satisfying gun play, not to mention just making good mechanics. Seems like nobody realizes the time it takes to make a game on the scale of Half Life.

What about overwatch in CS-GO? That's pretty much exactly what you where talking about with the anti-cheat. Players report hackers, and jury of pro-players review the accusation and reach a decision.

They make it seem as though Valve owes us something. If they want to keep things under wraps for what ever reason that's ok. This guy acts like he knows the best way to run a billion dollar game company.
Oysenberry (3 years ago)
More good TF2 updates. End of the Line was bad, as there were no new weapons (apart from the melee reskin, but we already have too many of those) and they didn't put Snowplow into the game because it was "Too confusing for new players". Just look at Asteroid, a map made by Valve. The gamemode can be confusing for new players, but they still have the servers up. Also, I have no idea how Steel got into the game if Snowplow is too confusing. However, I do find these "confusing" maps very fun and I wish that Valve and the EOTL Team would eventually release a sequel to End of the Line and add in Snowplow and stuff. The movie, the new cosmetics and the Pool Party taunt were the only good parts about it, but they are purely cosmetic features. We don't care about that stuff (well, we kinda do).

Valve shouldnt really upgrade VAC. Like, in CS:GO, there were 3 VAC waves recently some professionals have been banned for cheating. Ranks have been cleared.
THE BEST Lombax (3 years ago)
or the ref should be youse to create chemistry sets in game you know guys you dont need to put strange festive weapons or rare botkillers to make it just youse like 40 ref to create idk buds or bill strangifier from the chem set then key price will drop
