    steam support is like

    hitler tier

    origin support is 3000 times better

    its pretty weird actually but there u go, valve decided not to give a shit

    hiring a class of support peons would defo change the company culture

    Steam only had 2 people answering tickets, for millions of users. Anything complicated that a basic form letter didnt handle, they would just ban the account and refuse further contact. It was like 5 hitlers, and now its just hitler.

    i am skeptical of the alleged flatness of their corporate hierarchy to begin with, so yes, they should form a more hierarchical unit for answering support calls, which would allow for a more filtered response system

    but it is such a large change to their corporate culture that i am sure they will resist doing so until they cannot avoid it

    On the flatness, it's pretty clear its a super stressful environment because rockstars get everything and if you dont get our of their way you get fucked hard or thrown to the wayside. Their employee handbook is available publicly and it explains how to overcome such obstacles and it seems pretty good about it.


    It's still been pretty fucked up. Recently I think the blood bowl or the space hulk devs had issues and couldnt get in contact with anyone at valve so they changed their game name in steam to "CAN SOMEONE AT VALVE SUPPORT CONTACT US ABOUT ISSUES X/Y/Z ITS AN EMERGENCY AND THERES NO SUPPORT ANSWERS?" in a super long string. It updated in the store, and in peoples libraries, it was pretty amazing.

    hahaha that's awesome

    got a link to the story, I'd love to read it

    I was sitting around in steam chat when it happened and we all had a good laugh. I can't find a story about it :( I want to say it happened earlier this year, but was most likely within the last year.
