You want to know something really sad. I purchased my copy years ago as well. It was brushed off to the side for another title that grabbed my attention at the time (cannot recall which one), and then it got neglected for another... and another... etc.

In fact, to this day, I have done nothing but install the game I paid for sometime ago. Therefore, I would have clearly been better off just vying for the day it would become freeware...

Sad, but true.

P.S. Now I have Metallica stuck in my head.

Here is a hug for you bro. There there.

While I believe that Valve should have prepared for something like that to happen, the fact that they were giving away that game for free, as well as the holiday sale going on at the same time, I'm not surprised that it went down at all.

Yeah I nocited the store was full for a few hours.

No one could barely do anything because of the people who no offence, to cheap to buy it wanted it free.

Some of my friends missed the deal because of the time and how jammed it was. Valve tend not to care about server upgrading I think, and think more on throwing stuff out than getting the servers sorted to cope with the amount of people.

I noticed every year, Valve has super bad problems with server load, and yet millions more people have signed up to Valve and yet they still have no upgraded their servers to cope with this.
