    @Steam_Support says to contact Eve @EveOnline. But I paid Steam, not Eve. Really feel like they need to figure out how to fix this sort of thing instead of just asking the customer to contact the people THEY charged for in the first place.

  • TuecerPrime TuecerPrime [SOV] (@TuecerPrime) reported

    @CohhCarnage @steam_games I don't expect Steam to fix anything tbh. One good point of Epic gaining momentum (I really tried hard not to write "steam" lol) is that it might force Valve off their collective keister and do something.

  • SeaOfThyL thyL (@SeaOfThyL) reported

    @CohhCarnage @steam_games At least you get responses. I can't send a support ticket via client (which is part of the problem I need steam support to help me with) and I don't get _any_ answer at all via email or twitter or contact form on their site. ._.

The Steam Client locally saves data such as the list of games you own, your friends list and saved login tokens (similar to information stored in web browser cookies). This is private user data, cont'd

    Thank you so much Angelo from @Steam_Support for helping. I’m not 100% sure if it works due to there being to many tries to login into my account. Tomorrow I will try and it should be good to go!

  • dasukocho ダス✝ (@dasukocho) reported

    @YouriAshton @NotSmug_ @Grummz @steam_games Off @EpicGames launcher were a better platform today, @TimSweeneyEpic wouldn't need to make exclusivity deals. They came out with the money they needed but delivered a poorer quality platform with features that are standard being missing. This is the issue.

  • TheJakeSimpson Jake Simpson (@TheJakeSimpson) reported

    Some Vague-tweeting time. For all the bluntness I do about Valve sometimes, I have to report that today, the @Steam_Support group did some OUTSTANDING work for us, on a very big game. Prompt, efficient, and they got the game up again within two hours of the issue being reported.

  • GenerallyIwould Very Unvery (@GenerallyIwould) reported

    @RobynPorteous @SluttySlutSlut1 @steam_games Sorry but culture is the general amalgamation of society's achievements, and there's nothing remotely positive about ****, so stop calling it a culture, as it is also nowhere as big in size of an issue that would imply it 'deserves' to be labeled that way.

    @Steam_Support Hi there. Deleted my account months ago, this morning I've had a message to say someone is trying to access that account. Given that my account doesn't exist any more I can't log in to raise the issue.

  • kanenfodder Patch O'Kanen (@kanenfodder) reported

    1. I am not surprised by either. People make money all kinds of crap. Check out @Steam_games 2. People should be allowed to make a living on attacking people verbally. If there is a demographic willing to pay for it and it's not a crime, I see no issue. It's similar to porn IMO.

  • DssdInvestments DSSD Investments (@DssdInvestments) reported

    Bitcoin: Dear steam_games, please re-enable BTC and BCH payments on your platform! The reasons you cited for disabling Bitcoin payments last year are no longer issues, especially if you use a service like BitPay. #BringBackBitcoin #BitcoinOnSteam #P2PCashIsKing …

    So I got my brand new @watchdogsgame (the first one) from @steam_games and I can't even play it because of the third party login with @Ubisoft. Really what's the point of collaboration if it only make my life worse. smh

  • Forumposter2 Eisberg (@Forumposter2) reported

    @alhazmi2195 @TimSweeneyEpic @GV_Delchev @90one80 @steam_games There is no file that shows pre-order. Played time is useless since it they can get better info by using SteamWeb API to see what games gamers are playing the most same goes with game owned, token login is actually the same kind of thing you see in cookies

  • F7GOS1 F7GOS (@F7GOS1) reported

    Why didn't you do that when you were sitting idle after downloading... 😅 Hopefully a glitch in the matrix rather than an indication of a badly working fledgling platform... @steam_games 1 @EpicGames 0 so far.....

  • SecondLonk [A]lek (@SecondLonk) reported

    In light of this whole Epic thing, we gotta realize that Steam, while not nearly as bad, are a part of the issue. The cut they take from devs are HUGE. Epic takes less than half, and sometimes even less than that of @steam_games. Both have to improve, some more than others.

    @Steam_Support There is a problem with workshop collections. Many of them are not showing any items. Some of them load properly, some of them don't. If I refresh, there is a chance the items will appear.

  • AbdurrahmanMc1 Abdurrahman Mc (@AbdurrahmanMc1) reported

    @steam_games you should fix the paycut to end epic hitting on your face, and even that make your income lessen. you can get a new chapter for fixing your name on game, make a great game. thats the only way

  • Evocashious Evocashious (@Evocashious) reported

    @steam_games thanks for taking away the voice of the people. Literally the only reason I used your service over others like @EpicGames. Guess bending over to devs who don't want to face any consequences for bad practices is all the rage. #Sellouts

  • VastoLorde_x Vizard Ichigo (@VastoLorde_x) reported

    Dear @TimSweeneyEpic and @EpicGames. The shade you are currently throwing at @steam_games is unwarranted. And kudos on fostering a toxic idea such as launcher exclusives. This is anti consumer at its core and you should be ashamed. Also the, "we're not a porn service" bit-

  • ocdtrekkie ocdtrekkie (@ocdtrekkie) reported

    @Zero_Ken4 @tack_wise @OfficialBiosen @eQuiinox_67 @EpicGames @Quantic_Dream @steam_games The problem is, if they do that, you'll just buy it on Steam. Which is bad. So the best thing is to not sell it there.

  • NchimaKapoma The Dumbest Kid in Class (@NchimaKapoma) reported

    The problem with @steam_games is simply that it has lived long enough to see itself become the vilian.

  • AngryCanuckGamr 🍁 The Angry Canadian Gamer 🍁 (@AngryCanuckGamr) reported

    I have no problems with @EpicGames getting exclusives. I get that people want to buy them on @steam_games, but Steam doesn't seem interested in working very hard to get these games. Or interested in anything really, other than sitting on their asses watching the money roll in.

  • creepah108 Alex Creeps (@creepah108) reported

    @Rustyehh @AngryJoeShow @OuterWorlds @EpicGames @steam_games You've got me there. From what I saw though, both steam and epic need to fix their systems

  • Daemonocracy Daemonocracy❌ (@Daemonocracy) reported

    @Ixozuxiz @JetiIl @AngryJoeShow @OuterWorlds @EpicGames @steam_games It's a bare bones, sub par service. Of course people are hating on it. That is what consumers do. They are no innocent victim.

  • Ixozuxiz Jens (@Ixozuxiz) reported

    @Daemonocracy @JetiIl @AngryJoeShow @OuterWorlds @EpicGames @steam_games Epic already have an audience of tens of millions. Chinese have your data with or without Epic. Tencent, in this case, has stocks everwhere. its not a reasonable argument to bring up privacy issues anymore. Chances are, if you're on twitter, internet already knows who you are.

    @ryanleesipes @steam_games I had the same thought. Probably a companion service for their Chromebook

  • dPolterghost Mike (@dPolterghost) reported

    @AngryJoeShow @OuterWorlds @EpicGames @steam_games Sure devs saying one thing and doing something else is a problem but thats about it. You people are cherry picking, hate just to hate coz its popular. None of the problems that Epic might have is not affecting games quality and thats what matters the most.

  • theR3DMOUTH R3DMOUTH (@theR3DMOUTH) reported

    @grandayy @steam_games What might help is enabling updates in the background while a game is running. I had this same issue and turning on that feature (it's off by default because steam wants to save bandwidth for online gaming) fixed this.
