View Full Version : Steam too busy?

23rd Mar 2010, 12:50
Ok I been using steam since 2003 and finally needed to use one of the old tricks.

I got up 8:30am Eastern, expecting to see the game downloaded or downloading, to my surprised, nothing was happening. When i double clicked to install, to my shock I was met with a response: our servers are too busy to handle your request.

I went into settings>downloads and changed my region from Toronto, Canada ( my home region). To Seattle Washington, I am currently at 25%downloaded as we speak (@1.2mBs).

So if your getting the servers are busy message, just change regions, preferably to one where the people are still half asleep.
