    @Steam @valvesoftware Your reservation system is broken I keep getting the error saying I've attempted to many purchases in the last few hours..

  • Ben (@oxacillin) reported

    @Steam How is it that after a wealth of history and experience with the problem of slammed website traffic, that you learn nothing about how to manage the problem?

  • Adam Dugger (@duggera) reported

    @Steam No, reservations are _broken_ now. I've been trying for over 30 minutes to reserve the "one per account" on the only account I have, and it dies at the payment method. Please fix this as soon as possible.

  • Josh (@Lolwut77) reported

    @Steam Wth is going on? Why am I getting errors on purchase? Why am I now being punished for trying to complete a purchase and being told I've tried too many times, and have to wait an hour or more to try again? What the actual ****, Valve?

  • JJ (@lbkz) reported

    @neoak @Steam If you have an issue send them a package showing them how upset you are 😈 Steam HQ: Floor 14, 10400 NE 4th St, Bellevue, WA 98004, USA

  • Quentin (@MartianMan2012) reported

    @Steam Is there an outage right now with purchasing the steamdeck reservation? I've been trying to purchase since 12:02pm CST, but the site keeps crashing. I tried from my phone and 2 other PC's. It seems to crash when selecting the payment type PayPal, cc'. Now I'm locked out?

  • Ross (@Ross20931070) reported

    @Steam Too bad we can't place reservations sure to being blocked from making purchases sure to the constant errors. Now I'm getting a message that says it looks like I've been attempting a lot of purchases please wait a while before trying again.

    @Steam @Steam_Support @valvesoftware Please note I am 100% sure that is an error - it was just a really funny error message that got to me :D

  • Santa Claus? 'fraid not. (@theMAC) reported

    @Steam Get your support staff out in force removing this bullshit restriction. I did what the pop up said and waited and tried to check out. Fix this garbage

  • Xenophone (@x3nophone) reported

    @Steam Can't buy one, looks like your service just can't keep up with demand. Would welcome assistance from support as I've been at this since exactly 10am PDT thanks

  • Pampelmoose Lacroix (@PampelmooseL) reported

    @Steam Had mine purchasing at 10:01, had some problem with my order, was in my purchase history and asked me to try again and now it's gone and not letting me try again

  • Boskee (@boskee_voitek) reported

    Epic fail @Steam - some of us who tried to reserve Steam Deck are now blocked from completing the purchase because "It looks like you've been attempting a lot of purchases in the last few hours." You're penalising those who came early because of your server issues!
