In the old Left 4 Dead games, they had the AI director who would toss more enemies at you if you're doing well, but give you an easier time if you were struggling

I'd be really interested to hear them talk about their approach to balancing, since (at least running through Recruit) it seems like difficulty escalates both over the course of a self-contained Act (as you're building up cards/weapons/mods to deal with it) and also between acts in terms of enemy composition, complexity, etc. I wonder how many of the "Recruit is too easy" people made it all the way through all of the acts, or even all of Act I before making that assessment.
It also makes me wonder about the thinking around balancing of different difficulties; is Act I Veteran effectively picking up where Act 4 Recruit leaves off in terms of complexity, with more enemy damage/health and team damage? Or is there some other consideration? I've heard people say that Veteran is balanced around having better cards, but that can't be the whole story because "better cards" really have minimal impact in the first level or two of a run where you haven't built meaningful synergies yet and you're still largely running with white piece of shit guns.

Maybe he took the "down in front" card so he doesn't damage the melee player, since you don't deal or receive any friendly fire when crouching.

Oof. Some really bad Pub groups this morning. The first had someone who was melee and just running ahead not giving a shit about anyone else. Surprising nobody they got pinned and ended up costing the entire party. This previous one I got pinned and all 3 of them just stood there until I got incapacitated.

So it looks like crouching doesn't do anything for accuracy when hip firing but a laser sight significantly helped my aim while hip firing with a M1A. I tried the same ranch rifle setup he got at the start of that video and I think the ranch rifle just has pretty solid accuracy so someone with good aim should be able to hip fire with it well as long as they aren't trying to shoot as fast as possible.

God damn I did a quickplay of act 1 for some supply points this morning and what a struggle bus. One dude refused to like heal? People kept pointing out healing cabs and he just ran on past and let his life bar get smaller and smaller. I know its act 1, but fuck sake.

I haven't bought the game yet, but is there a place where we congregate to join up? Is Armadeaddon back online? Or discord?

I think I like Hoffman the most so far.
