Steam Issues Reports
Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@Steam I had the SAME "too many attempts" too. Just sit and wait about 20 minutes (I know it's hard) and then try again. I got the other error instead, but it stopped doing the "attempts" error. I waited one minute between each try and it did eventually go through. Good Luck!!!
@KuroCanidae @TrashbagOpossum @Steam was it the same error? the one about being locked out?
@Steam Anyway you can use your logs to fix queue placement for all of us who just tried to pay and now got locked out for a lot of purchases
@Steam So if I’m new to steam I have to wait 48 hrs in order to purchase one? And I went to purchase one and it crash
@Steam Ah yes. The classic locking people out of their reservation with zero explanation or a quick fix. Guess we get to wait an indeterminate amount of time and potentially get ours months later now. Thanks Volvo.
@ElBurro4Moo @Steam @Steam_Support Some people have said the error code will change after trying enough times, but I'm really not sure.
@Steam Yeah, I have a few questions. Like, how were you this underprepared for your process? It's simply terrible, and a bad look for your company. Fix this
@Steam Can u guys fix it?
@Steam are you ******* kidding me right now!?!?!? Got the “attempting to make too many purchases” bullshit and now the reservation button is grayed out with order availability in Q1!? It’s in my cart and I can’t even pay for it! I’m beyond frustrated! Fix this for us!
@derchris @Steam Oh you have problems too. My account is locked out because they wrote their website so poorly that failed transaction count into the maximum # of orders per hour.
@Riverter @Steam It's a glitch
@Steam You guys should have had reservations open the second you announced it. Not only would it have caught people by surprise so it wouldn't flood your servers, but you wouldn't have so many people angry that you essentially schedule a DDOS attack on yourselves to mess up this big.
So fun trying to pre-order the steam deck and getting 50 errors @Steam
@Steam Your purchase may have been completed, but there was a problem checking on the status of this transaction. Please check your account status page or your email for a confirmation receipt. annnd nothing ... jesus f. christ...
Hey @Steam can you fix your platform?
