    When the hell did Billy Dee Williams learn Indian D:

    And I have finally experienced the joys of tweaked party servers; when you get a good lot everybody's yellin' and screamin' and laughin' and it's one gigantic race with infected everywhere and it is just so fuuuuun :D

    And then every six maps or so the server has to craaaaash D: and it takes like an hour for stuff to get started again.

    Just had the strangest reverse stomp with me, Trey, Obama, and Exoplasm. On the very first map these guys tell us they are inviting some friends so we kinda knew this wouldn't be a real stomp stomp. And well they pretty much leveled us on each map everytime. We managed to make them boredquit by the 4th map! I feel like we've achieved a new level of mediocrity.

    My server has the drop command. It is a plugin for sourcemod. I also have a plugin that prevents friendly fire in the safe room/starting area at the beginning of each map. This way you won't get griefed before the game gets going. Search key is exoplasm, by the way.

    I have no idea if you will gain 64k health from dropping on my server.

    Edit: also it has a plugin to prevent the random team switches between maps.

    A fall of six feet can kill you, maybe they're cranking up the realism. Next up will be the cover system and blindfiring.

    Bug fixes alone would make the game more fun to play. Update also promises 4v4 match making, which should solve some ragequit scenarios. Hell, the SDK might even come out of beta when the update hits and that would be a really big change

    Ok I just watched it and I don't like this guy.

    He goes right back to the sense of entitlement, but if he actually played L4D, he'd know we'd been expecting a major update (and yes we wouldn't expect it unless Valve told us so, which they did) for a long time.

    Sure it looks like entitlement to him, but he hasn't been playing L4D from day one, or else he'd know why the PC users are pissed off. They are literally not releasing the L4D2 into DLC because of the console content not being able to transfer.

    Whatever, think it's entitlement or whatever, but when someone promises me something, I usually take that into account and expect their word to be true.

    Whatever, I've just learned that tuftoo is the only game that Valve will stand behind their promises with. Lesson learned, I guess. I might pick up L4D2 if all my friends get it and if it launches with as much content readily accessible as L4D has today.

    It is known that because it would be extremely difficult to release DLC to the Xbox, with issues concerning Microsoft and now EA with L4D2, it isn't as easy as PC users downloading the update and BAM, that's the update. There's stupid copyright stuff and hardware issues.

    With console users, apparently the issue is not everyone will have this stuff downloaded, the new skins, the new maps, etc etc, so there would be issues somehow.

    I'm not sure where I read this, but a couple of people told me this is the reason why it was fffffffff.


    Also, that Adam guy obviously doesn't play L4D or know much about it, because at the end he also says he'd love to hear more about it and why do we feel so entitled and selfish?

    If he had stuck with updates as close as us, he'd understand why we feel "entitled".

    What? How am I letting emotions cloud my judgement?

    Everything I've said here is fact.

    Valve said in the first couple months of L4D, "Yo guys, expect mad gear and loot sons for L4D! We're Valve, we'll hook you up!"

    We said, "Ok sweeeeeet that's what I'm talkin bout, lots of variety involved into the game. Sick updates, rad."

    Valve: "Oh no, nevermind we're just not going to release any DLC and wait 6 months to bring L4D TWO TWO TWO TWO.. twoo... twooo! Sit in awe at the 2 after the L4D, it clouds your judgement."

    L4D Community: "Shit, well that stinks.. This doesn't seem like Valve, why would they cop out like that?"

    Everyone that doesn't play L4D/Agrees with L4D2: STOP FEELING ENTITLED YOU STUPID PIECES OF SHIT!




    That's what I'm getting. The community being badgered for actually believing in Valve's promise.

    I don't get it, don't fucking get mad at us cause we were excited about Valve releasing more stuff.

    This is the exact opposite of entitlement.
