As part of the long 2018-review post posted today, Valve identified an improvement made to Steam in 2018, then blew its internal common crystal bar for a quick look into the future.
If everything goes according to the plan, it will be a great year for Steam. But this is Valve, a company whose main contribution to the field of physics is the concept of "Valve Time," so it's pretty big "if".
There are many digits. In 2018 Valve says that Steam had 47 million active users daily, 90 million monthly active users, and the peak number of users was 18.5 million. Valve also spoke about the results of more concrete efforts, as well as his recent (and long overdue) addition to the moderation team, which has since passed 113,290 post posts – "most of which were resolved in less than a day." To say that the problem of toxicity is almost solved, but it sounds like progress.
Despite his hands-on reputation with ending at his store, Valve said that last year his team review game "processed 46200 requests for consideration, played 11,111 games (or DLCs), and studied 17,448 pages of the store." The iffy games are still slipping through the cracks, but the world is now probably safe from obvious troll like works Great Dick and MILF slightly more careful look of Valve. The company also made "over 44 million" ticket assistance – a significant improvement over the dark Steam support age.
With regard to what is expected ahead, Valve outlined eight changes that he plans to put up this year. These include upgrading the openness of stores, including the new algorithmic engine and the new broadcast and courier functions, the redesigned Steam library, based on the technology underlying the new version of the Steam chat, the launch of Steam China, the new system of events, Steam TV support for all games, a new mobile application for the Steam chat, an expanded Steam Trust system to determine if there are cheat players, and the official Steam PC café program.
Many of these things sound interesting, if nothing else, and I'm looking forward to seeing the daylight in * paper views * day, month, and probably also the TBD year.
