What I hate most of Steam is the automatic update function. Not a really bad idea actually, but more than often a new patch comes and screws your gameplay. Developers don't give a damm and the stupid Steam doesn't let you roll back.

Simple fix:

Step 1: Open your library in Steam
Step 2: rightclick the game, click Properties.
Step 3: Turn off autoupdate, click OK
Step 4: ??
Step 5: Profit!

Simple as that.

And that Steam went offline due to a power-outage AND that the backup-generators couldn't handle the load is one for the Shit happens-category.

It doesn't work. You'll still get the latest patch, if you haven't got it already.

Then there's something wrong on your end. If I uncheck the option to keep my steam-games from autoupdating, they won't.

For the last 14 hours German players can´t connect to steam and therefore can´t fly and the problem continues!!!

Man I paid a lot of money for my collectors edition and I´m being dictated by Valves incompetence!

I´m mad a s hell.
Why may I not start CoD offline???

I think 1c should seriously consider a good alternative to Steam.

The problem is this: if you ever go into Offline mode in Steam, it will automatically turn Autoupdates back on. It shouldn`t- It does.

So, I see the awaited successor to IL2 is released and I see they made it forced-Steamed.

Terrible, terrible decision. I pleaded with Oleg not to, but I guess others got the better of him.
