I was playing CSGO when suddenly everyone had over 500 ping. Then I checked and its happening in pretty much every steam game.

Then I found this while scrolling FB

looks like a massive attack.

I'm downloading Deadlight at 2.2Mb/s right now.

Must not affect people outside of the US.

My Steam is working fine atm.

It sounds more likely that the server tc was playing on just shit the bed.

It's not affecting people INSIDE the US. It's just one guy who had a high ping on a server who used some terrible logic and assumed that meant that the entirety of Steam was getting DDoS'd.

So, this thread should be locked for false information...

(Steam wasn't affected by such DDoS.)
