To be clear its everyone in the game, not just me. Although the DDoS may simply be targeting me, if thats the case I'll just continue trying as I have no idea and Valve hasn't clarified.

Sir, I've had nothing but problems with servers every day for 2.5 weeks. I also was beginning to wonder if I was the target of some kind of DoS attack.

I can't understand how this problem can exist for so long with NOTHING being done. The only thing I can see is it may affect only a small number of people. So they don't know about it? This is ridiculous!

They must know about it, there are steam groups dedicated to the problem. There are many emails that have been sent. They should either fix it or give us new copies (for new accounts). This is 100% a steam problem since this is a problem on only their servers. There are 3rd party mods that prevent DDOS from working, no excuse left for valve not to fix it.

It's been happening ever since the new l4d2 update

If you check your console, whenever the lag starts up it gets filled with garbage like this.

@ Kudu Honestly, that's what I call a cool story bro. Such a riveting tale, I honestly copy and pasted it to word, saved on my hard drive, backed it up on a jump drive, drove to the bank, put the jump drive in the safe deposit box, and will leave it there until my kids turn about 12 (when they can actually state their age, and ask what it is I'm showing them), when I will pick it up, put it in an old USB drive reader and relay this cool story to them and tell them, "kids, this is what a cool story should look and sound like...not like the stories your generation tells."

I am not having any problems with my ping, but it's really annoying that you can't play a complete game anymore because if someone loses they leave then crash the server. This is happening like every 3rd or 4th game now.

Private servers have safe guards to prevent these attacks, so why can't Valve do it?

Because the server blocks any connections that aren't linked to your friends list.
