Has anyone had problems installing this game. I cannot set up a new Steam account and thus cannot play the game. I get an error message box to the effect that Create Account failed due to error 200: Connection Reset, Winsock Error 10054. Connection reset by peer.
I have emailed Tech Support and await their response, but if anyone out there can help in the meantime, please let me know. Thanks.

Thanks for that. I should have searched for any previous postings but as the game was only launched 16th Nov, I did not think that anyone might have beaten me to it ! What a situation. Having paid money for the game, it is galling not being able to play it. Seems very wrong !!

Totally agree with you. Same old thing, "We have their money, so what".

Valve servers now online. Have just managed to set up an account and register game. Took nearly half an hour to complete everything but have now played the game and got started. You certainly need patience with this set up routine !!!

the european servers crashed due to loading yesterday for about 4 hours from 9am.

so everyone in europe was trying to authenticate at the same time.

so you had to wait a bit, so did everyone else

Is it true you need to activate the game before you can play? even single player mode may not be just what i heard,bad luck if you have no net connection then.Think it only applies to games brought in shops tho.Might upset a few people if it true.
