Right now the sudden high demand for Arma 2 is crippling the Steam servers.
The demand for Arma 2 hardly registers on steam:
4k peak players on Arma 2 today through steam, compare to 42k on TF2 and CS of 58k. Even Garry's mod had almost 50% more players.
Content server stats (none of them are maxed):

I'm sure its doing decent sales, but its not "crippling" to steam.

Sales numbers and peak players numbers are two different things. The recommended way to launch the DayZ mod uses a separate launcher. If you use the launcher, Steam doesn't register you as running the game. So there are likely quite a few people playing that won't show up in the peak players tally.
