This has become a serious problem. Several days ago, I bought my friends a copy of planetary annihilation with the expectation that they would be able to play it with me. Several hours of trying later, I haven't be able to have them connect or have myself connect to any game. Quite frankly, it appears the servers are completely overwhelmed, and it is starting to show in the steam reviews. I am clearly not the only one experiencing this problem, and I would like to know what is being done to bring an end to this. I have been enjoying the game for many months before this, and this is the first time I have experienced this problem. I want nothing but this game's success, but I believe the steam sale and the server problems is starting to hurt rather than help.
