do you all have steam set to auto update games? I logged in this morning and steam had already updated the game for me and I was ready to play. I've never encountered a problem with the game updating through steam myself.
Ditch Steam. Never understood why it should be needed as another layer on top of the Frontier launcher. Just launch and update directly from Frontier. Steam is utterly superfluous except for games where it is an exclusive requirement (eg. Skyrim).
