    @EAHelp @Steam Can you fix the preload with fifa 22 ultimate edition. On origin it says you can preload the game then steam says it isn't available. Millions of people are having this issue please fix it.

  • nlemurbcaf Emily Endina (@nlemurbcaf) reported

    @MsmNew @Steam I was so terrified when I had problem with my account, i talked to their customer care and support but all to no avail, i was told to text @wondrfeul on Twitter, he helped me all thanks to him, if you have any account related issues kindly text him. He’s reliable and legit✅

  • ZhulanovAndrey Andrey Zhulanov (@ZhulanovAndrey) reported

    @12mrcool @Steam One important thing. Your existing hard drive probably uses NTFS file system. It should be supported pretty well, but sometimes some problems could happen. It's recommended to use file systems like ext4 which works much better with Linux, but isn't supported by windows by default

  • Tiffany_S0321 Real_Bytes_Gaming (@Tiffany_S0321) reported

    @Steam I dont know what the hell is going on but this is really unprofessional - I have reached out several times to deal with this matter of my account security and I have not received a response, not even an acknowledgement that you are received it and are working the problem.

  • fLrpcpohlad Mario Maritano (@fLrpcpohlad) reported

    @emilyy_riverss @Steam It really feels bad how your account has been hacked I had same issue not until I was recommended to @prantic_tech and he got it fixed today hit him up and be happy again

  • chilled_milk Chilled Milk (@chilled_milk) reported

  • brochard_44 brochard (@brochard_44) reported

    @DPro9009 @Steam 1) Independance from Microsoft 2) Performance 3) Customization 4) Price 5) Reliability Linux is better than Windows in every way except software support and Steam is solving this issue, we can thank them for pushing open source alternatives against those closed spying OS.

  • profexorgeek Justin Johnson (@profexorgeek) reported

    @StrawcherryCat @Steam Yeah I can live with that dialog you posted. It could be better but it is clear enough. The other one is super confusing as a service outage warning!

  • josepha01372033 ImJab (@josepha01372033) reported

    @Steam Fix your servers

  • paddedfoxo Lili (@paddedfoxo) reported

    @Steam Why can it only connect to PC through remote play? it has a perfectly good USBC on top? I don't want a ton of input lag from having to stream my inputs through the net....

  • someroguedoug RogueSome (@someroguedoug) reported

    @Steam also fix tf2 cowards

  • Sana_Silverfang Sarah Young (@Sana_Silverfang) reported

    @Steam I tried to request a refund and even put in my reasoning is due to health issues that have been going on for months, I can't afford to keep my pre order and got denied 😢

  • Bachibouzoukk MMX (@Bachibouzoukk) reported

    @Balmung @Steam How paying for a bad service is a good thing.

  • ChrisGamerDude Chris Likes Games (@ChrisGamerDude) reported

    @Steam I've got a problem with this system that's portable, from what I've been told you can't use mobile or cellular data on a connection from a phone, it's got to be WiFi only, What happens if there's no WiFi around me if I was playing this Steam Deck down some street...

  • TehRealCK Christopher keene (@TehRealCK) reported

    @Steam going down last night highlights the a much bigger issue regarding the ownership of games. There is no reason that Steam going down should prevent any of us from playing a game that we spent our hard-earned money on. This will likely get worse. We must #fightForOurGames

  • Bachibouzoukk MMX (@Bachibouzoukk) reported

    @Steam Fix TF2 you greedy b*******

  • LXanthor Lord-Xanthor (@LXanthor) reported

    @Warpwnge @Steam This is why I tell people drm free never has these issues, just like they said Steam will never be down. Steam goes through maintenance they tell no one of so my guess is, reindexing failed. Normal hint this is happening is when mods don't show in a search.

  • MirandaRosalise verona rupes (@MirandaRosalise) reported

    @tamzinblake @Steam I’m close to deleting my PayPal account for the same reason. Two customer service reps have told me it’s physically impossible for them to change the name “more than once”, which sucks because they ****** it up and changed it to the wrong name that “one time”

  • penguinsfan93 Penguinsfan93 (@penguinsfan93) reported

    Well supposedly @Steam has lock me out of my account for fail trys to login in, I am Super frustrated because I have 15 games on my library, I payed for. I don't understand this at all. I create new account and try that way. So they make it very uneasy....

  • DigiStreamUtd Digital Streamlining Unlimited (@DigiStreamUtd) reported

    @Steam I'd be better impressed if your company took suggestions about your Steam Client not working correctly: I've attempted to open a ticket on your Steam Client notifying me of events for games I don't own; I never gave you permission to use pop up ads for games on my computer.

  • chbyhlin the spicy mchaggis jig (@chbyhlin) reported

    @Steam is there any e-mail for contact steam support? I can’t login! I have a old phone number and have forgotten the recovery code for guard mobile authenticator!

  • The_MasterLight MasterLight (@The_MasterLight) reported

    @lulumonk2 @Steam Oh I am so glad it wasn't just me. I was having all sorts of problems last night and hearing that someone else was having problems with Steam is reassuring.
