Steam is a BIIIIIIG bunch of code. Really, really big. Tremendous. They kinda break stuff sometimes. Remember how Offline mode totally didn't work right at all for years and they they recently finally fixed it? It's not perfect, but it's Steam, after going through a retrospective/post-mortem of what actually happened and how goofy the underlying bug was, I'm giving Valve the benefit of the doubt in the future.
If you want to read more in depth as to why, check my post here:
I know that it's scary to have the idea of having all our games kicked out from under us, or having them controlled as to how we play them in single player, but it is so, so, anti-Valve to do that, and given the really just absurd nature of this particular issue and that it affected other people too for various reasons and in various ways (including just straight up games not working), and that it was a really high priority fix... I have no malice toward them at all, and don't feel like a legitimate case can be made for them having actually done anything wrong, just screwed up pushing an update and then fixing it ASAP.
If we had something to do with getting it fixed ASAP, all's the better! It sucked when our trainers broke, it was great when the CH team (Caliber especially, I understand?) fixed it pretty much immediately, and it is the best that in the end we're back to a harmonious relationship with the people who we buy games from since for a little while, before we understood what was actually happening, it was the opposite - and kind of scary, given how many games and how much money was thought to be at stake if they HAD BEEN trying to implement some kind of new anti-cheat and ban people for it.
Really glad it turned out to be a bug and not a feature. It's just so, so "not Valve"-ish to do something like that, glad that's how it ended up after all the dust settled. Thanks to the CH team for keeping cheats going while the bug was still screwing things up!

I had the trainer for CoH2 188.8.131.5220 and it worked a treat. Now the scum at Steam enforce me to update the game and now (not surprisingly) the trainer no longer works.
Can you tell me when there will be an updated trainer to v184.108.40.20604?
(Christ, I hate Steam, I buy a game in-store to play on my own PC (no interest in playing online) and I am forced to go through this bull****!
