    Survival mode is just mean.

    Although I've only tried it on the lighthouse level and didn't play for all that long.

    But hey, melee spam is pretty much fixed.

    man, steam groups screw with me!

    Was kinda doin' some of the Survivor levels with the bots, and people I didn't know were sneakin' in.

    I'm only in like, three groups! All of them PA! What the hell.

    Also that Lighthouse level is monstrous.

    yeah. you have an unlimited amount of time to prepare, and they litter the area with tons of gear, ammo stashes, propane and gas tanks, etc. After you're all ready, you trigger a crescendo event (turn on the pump, start the van, etc) and the clock starts and they throw everything and anything they can at you. A tank will usually show up in the first minute. Special Infected aren't limited in number anymore. At one point we were fighting four Smokers, three Hunters (that I could count) two Boomers and two Tanks. Fire is your friend. Shotguns are your friends.


    Also, goddamn, holding out for 12 minutes?! Fuck, we cheered when we hit 4 minutes on Last Stand.

    Yeah, I had a good time playing with Scarlet, then with CasinoGhost and Aretus and a friend of his.

    I'm really glad the strategy of hiding under the boathouse worked out for us so well. With a little more planning (more conservative use of fuel tanks, not setting ourselves on fire) that seems like the place to hold out on that map.

    i got some bug where the survivors were ai and we were apparently infected but it said we were dead and could only spectate
    then someone joined and we restarted the round and the new guy was a survivor and i was an unspawnable smoker and the other two guys were still just observing


    man i wanted to pull that guy down though
    soon as they get up on the top of the lighthouse
    just fuck em up

    also that video of one of the makers playing the lighthouse level from a while back
    and hes all 'okay maybe well try camping here see how this works OH GOD RUN FUCK ZOMBIES EVERYWHERE SET THE ROOM ON FIRE AND GET OUT BEFORE I BURN TO DEATH'

    nice to see that the makers arent anything special at the game

    though i would like to see some team of 12 year old korean kids whose job is to just fucking play and learn every single thing and master the hell out of it
    counting their survivor records in hours

    My best at the moment is only 5mins 40secs on lighthouse. Granted i've only played survivor 20mins in total but still.

    Shit just goes down so fast...and yes I have been pulled down by a smoker from the top of the lighthouse.

    Being slowly dragged down to the horde clammering to get at you is really unsettling.D:

    The best was getting decked off the top of the Lighthouse by a Tank and rocketing out into the ocean.

    When we did the Death Toll finale in Survival we decided to test out the theory of defending under the boathouse, because we weren't sure if the fuel tanks would ignite after they were thrown into the water.

    *BLAM*

    "Ow."

    "Oh. . .I guess they do. . .sorry guys"



    On Last Stand we had a pretty good setup in the busted staircase room, held out pretty well there for a while.

    i would like some kind of vs in this

    i could even go for my original misunderstanding of what vs was
    like an rts type thing
    say you got 4 guys on the other team and they have a few spawn timers and they can choose where to spawn ai hordes, special infected, and tanks
    maybe have designated spawn areas for the hordes and tanks, but a few to choose from
    maybe let the specials spawn wherever like in normal vs


    i think that could really work if they give it a good interface

    The trouble would be balancing out where the Horde-Controllers could spawn their Horde/Special Infected, as the Survivors are traveling through the level.

    It wouldn't be terribly hard to exploit the ability to place'em where ever they wanted.

    Also I hadn't seen this until checking out the G&T L4D thread, but this

    is awesome.

    Either a future campaign or a scrapped one or just concept art.

    Either way it's pretty cool. When I've got some spare cash I'm gonna order the L4D movie poster pack, plus the new Last Stand one.
