    or perhaps he just doesn't agree with you

    you're letting your emotions cloud your judgment
    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"

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



    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.

    Calm down.

    I would love some 4 v 4 matchmaking. It takes forever to stomp the wannabe pub stompers :mrgreen: So I'd have much more fun if someone made it easier.

    I can see where he's coming from in fairness. Yes you're getting the new content at the end of the day, but it's not exactly being shipped in the way the people who are "all up in arms about this L4D2 situation" expected it to be. It's moving the goal-posts. Personally I don't care either way, I'm just happy for more L4D one way or another, but I can definitely understand why people feel a bit screwed by this.

    There's nothing more petty and pedantic than a gamer scorned.

    Are some folks on a fixed income or what?

    'We will give you characters, campaigns, weapons and modes! We're gonna do the updates the way we did TF2 updates!'

    Well that''s fantastic, Gabe. I'm going to go and talk about how great this game is and tell people in the L4D thread who aren't sure about the game because it doesn't have that much content not to worry! It's ok! Valve said they're gonna update this like they did TF2!

    I'll still most likely buy L4D2 and I'll most certainly enjoy.
    Mainly because they're fixing all the issues with L4D1.

    Of course they still may give L4D1 new characters, maps and weapons and if they do I'm gonna look silly!

    Here's something else. There's a L4D2 supporters group. It's only at 300 members though. I bet it would be a lot bigger if xbox360 users were allowed to join. I haven't met a single console gamer who's upset about this yet. I would join, but I don't have a steam account.

    No, you're thinking of it all wrong.

    L4D2 is pretty much 70% of the content they promised for an update and just slapped a 2 in front of L4D.

    I don't think L4D2 should be ALL DLC and free at all, but come on.. here's the update list for L4D:

    -New Weapons (scrapped for L4D2)
    -New Models/skins (scrapped for L4D2)
    -New Bosses (scrapped for L4D2)
    -New Campaigns (scrapped for L4D2)

    I'm not looking for handouts, but come on, at least release us some new gun skins or 1 fucking campaign.

    Minty: I agree with you and it seems we agree as well, so why you hatin dawg? Your last bit I agree with too, they could probably release stuff for L4D, but I just don't see a major update happening with all the L4D2 stoof.

    I sincerely hope that the new weapons and characters find their way into L4D1. If the weapons don't, that's ok. But it would be cool to be able to set it that way.

    I'm more interested into the matchmaking update, to be honest. New maps and weapons will certainly be cool. But the matchmaking is critical to making my time worthwhile.

    Dude. It is entitlement. I hate to tell you, but it is. Anytime someone expects anything for free, it's entitlement. If I were you, I would stop arguing that it's not entitlement, and instead argue that it's justified entitlement. To a certain degree, I agree that some entitlement is justified, and being a little annoyed with Valve is justified. But signing a boycott and comparing Valve to EA, calling them liars who only care about money, is not justified.

    Not that you did that. I'm just saying, in general, that pisses me off.

    You know what I can't stand about the current match-making? Douchebags who are playing with a friend beside them as a guest. All my experiences of playing with these kinds of people are "Dude, go to the other team so me and my buddy can play together or we walk." Or "Dude, kick someone who was here before us so we can both play, or we walk." I honestly hope they pack that shit in for L4D2. Has anything positive come from that dog-food garbage setting?

    This. This is why people are upset about it. I was actually one of those people that was kind of iffy about the game because I felt it lacked content, and was convinced by others to get it.

    I think where i differe from alot of people is that im not saying i wont buy L4D2, and i think L4D is an awesome game, and i still play it fairly regularly. What i dont like is that people kept saying new content was coming, and now it isnt.

    I'm the total opposite. I hate it when they try to put their guests on the other team. I don't like thinking that someone on the other team can see me as infected just by looking at his buddies side of the screen. Also, I don't want to be responsible for teaching your guest how to play the game.

    No, no sorry I didn't mean guests, I meant most of the pubstomp community.

    I remember as a joke + boredom, myself and Roland (might have been enders, not sure) decided to start up a game of L4D and pubstomp with 2 other pubbies, against pubbies.

    I'd say 4/6 people that joined and left our team was boasting about L4D2 being the shit and they can't wait, yet they just got the "Infected" bile achievement and 2 people got "Long-drag". One even asked us how to melee.

    haha we totally have to think up a new way to grief.

    I'm not sure, but maybe cause of lack of content, we started making up our own game modes.

    Either way, it's still fun as hell. We should have a single pistol, no melee reverse-stomp.

    I remember the days when we could melee through the whole level. That was pretty humorous.

    I think the problem would be solved by better matchmaking. It's a pretty obvious mistake on Valve's part and I hope they add 4 v 4 matchmaking soon (as in, when the newest patch comes out).

    Also, I apologize for my previous comment provoking the stupid shit. Dealing with people who constantly freak out about stupid shit (if I ever have to hear someone steer a conversation about real issues toward a discussion of John and Kate Plus 8 one more time, I'll fucking strangle them) has made crazy.
