I was under the impression that it was always mandatory for a crown to go for the small of her back (aiming for the tramp stamp).

I still have issues with tier 1 shottys and crowning though anyone have tips for that? I thought the same rule applies, you just have to be dead on?

When you run underneath the coaster on the way to the button that triggers the event, you can carefully climb up the boards and get onto the coaster track without ever hitting the button. There should be some Youtube videos of it, it's kinda tricky.

I'm betting that most times this ends up with death or 2 or more survivors hanging. Not to mention it would prob be next to impossible on vs.

The gnome mutation made it really easy to get the 'Bridge over trebeled water' achievement. One person running with the gnome three others shooting all the zombies running for them, dodge the tank and vuala.

It makes it easy when the common infected are only going for one survivor, just takes a tiny bit of teamwork.

Goons are finicky bitches.

That said I've taken to inviting some into friend only games when we need one and normally they behave. Darkhand does, some do not. But I should know better than to invite the hobo in and not have it stink.

I find the smoker to be onenof my favorite si to get because of the range and rooftops.

What's interesting to me is how much l4d gameplay centers around choosing good spawn locations - that's most of the game for infected right there.

That's also the thorn in the rear end of most infected teams also. A real good group of survivors can and will block known spawns and ambush sites. I've played a ton of games against teams who've ran ahead and blocked spawns and sent one person in for bait. Most (good) infected players have to play on their toes, I've seen it alot in goon games too.

Wait, so ... For Left 4 Dead 2, gamers receive “The Sacrifice” campaign and L4D1’s “No Mercy” both playable with the L4D1 Survivors. Each campaign is playable in Campaign, Versus, Survival, and Scavenge modes and both feature the Left 4 Dead 2 Special Infected, items, and weapons. Yes, Zoey with a chainsaw!.. means I don't have to have L4D loaded and can just play it on L4D2? Or am I missing something here?

I think the NM3 fence thing has to do with the distance traveled in the map or something. The last time I played tank, someone on the opposing team started telling his team (alltalk was on) to stay in the open area near the Burger Tank. Sure enough, three of us spawn behind the fence.

Honestly I play TANK! to enjoy. This is a luck of the draw game mode and people who are raging over fairness and trying to win are silly. Thankfully almost every time I've played it, the opposing teams have been very chill and everyone enjoys themselves over alltalk.

Yeah I got to agree with this. Going into TAAAAAAAAAANK! with anything other than the desire to have fun and goof off is going to lead to disappointment. Start the lobby, switch to all talk and no one should rage, you should be laughing to hard.

Also neko sucks.

Well, we had a good run with Diescraper this evening, but Crash Bandicoot Course really took the cake for this event:



It was an absolute meat-grinder. Pits that were navigable in co-op mode became hideous deathtraps when combined with human-controlled smokers and jockeys, entire teams were launched off the first pyramid by charger ambushes, and most players never even made it ten feet out of the saferoom in the ice level.

It was glorious.

Those runs were ridiculous fun. That said, those maps are freaking brutal. They're good 20 minute vs rounds really.

Wow Lone Gunman is a really lovely mutation. Apart from the gimmicky "use only one weapon thing" which really isn't THAT impressive and they've already done like 3 other times, it's also only single-player like Last Man on Earth, there's only one Special Infected (Boomer, though there are still tanks and witches), there's a lot fewer zombies, and every hit deals 30 damage by a common and a boomer. I don't even want to bother speedrunning through a map.

It does suck. I played a game right before rescuing Bee and Luscan from a certain reverse pubstomp and managed to speed run The Passing using plenty of adrenaline. By the time I made it to the finale I just didn't care, too gimmicky.

I know I'm blowing smoke but it'd be nice to see a few more of these mutations into game modes. *TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANKS*

If anything, at least 149's finale will forever be burned into the recesses of my eyeballs. And I still have no idea how we pulled off that win in the end despite getting mauled at that elevator shaft.

Also freakin' space-baby ending out of nowhere

Welp that settles it, 149 lobby will be up on me around 10p est (Churchwarden). Also I liked Haunted Forest even if it was a little wandering and cheesy but it just felt right. Whatever that means.

Also any other campaigns we should be looking at? I think we need an official G4D list. That way people can grab them and hop into chat and play them instead of racing 4 other goons then leaving when someone wants to do coop.

What kind of hacks exist for this game? Is it just aimbots and speedhacks, or are there things that mess with how the server does stuff?

Because I don't know, I think I may have been playing on some kind hacked server. Nobody was obviously aimbotting or speedhacking, but there was just a mountain of bullshit that was all aligned against us. Dead Center 1, enemy team has a tank spawn as they reach the elevator, so it is downstairs, and they can just wait for it to die. When our turn comes up, the tank spawns as soon as we walk out of the stairwell into the first hallway. Their Boomers could explode and slime us through solid walls when they weren't even close enough to clip through them partially. My tongue as the Smoker had about half the normal range; Chargers were passing through the entire enemy team when they were all bunched together in a narrow corridor and weren't moving laterally at the time (and everyone saw him pass through them instead of it appearing that way on one player's computer due to lag). I am not sure if the hand truck thingies in the corridor after the alarm room on Dead Center 3 are supposed to incap or just deal damage when the Tank punches them into someone, but I am pretty sure they aren't supposed to just pass through people standing directly on the other side of them without dealing any damage.

If it was just one or two of those things, it would have been lag, or a fluke of bad luck, or normal function of the game that seems to be rigged because you're frustrated. But it was constant, everyone on my team was experiencing it, and all but one person had green ping to the server. Is there some kind of server mod that changes the effectiveness of the Infected depending on which team is which, or was it just an astonishing run of bad luck?

Probably just bad luck. Sometimes you just get the games where nothing goes in your favor. Lined up perfectly for a death charge? Nope, you hit a door jamb just slightly. Boomer bile on the opposite team seems to shoot for 30 yards when yours couldn't hit the wall you spawned behind. etc... Them games.

Serious question, how hard is it to make a L4D2 level? I'm a computer novice at best but I'd almost seriously consider trying to make one.

Haunted Forest is a really fun map and Valve even endorsed it.

Haunted forest, One 4 Nine, Bandicoot, Diescraper, I'm sure there are others, all are fun but they need to shorten up their levels. Otherwise it's a short run through for everyone.

So is the consensus of the last 2 pages "we must abide by the rules set forth by Valve when playing Left 4 Dead". Or is it "internet anonymousness allows me to act any way I want".

I'm confused.

There are like 20 - 30 of us and we always play random teams or have captains pick, why would we enter a tourney? Most of us prefer realism over horrible confogl anyway. Also it's not that we're all absolutely awesome (obviously not everyone can be as good as me), just most of the people we play with actually talk about what's going on in the game and ask for help if they're down and react pretty quickly. Nobody really gets mad in our games either, every chat game I've played usually ends with someone raging.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that we're superior to you guys in every way imaginable.

Not really, no. It's just that we've absorbed most of the good players who went in chat, and they no longer go back to you because we are way better at satisfying them.
