    Patch coming tonight, i can feel it

    I'd prefer not knowing when patches were supposed to come out so I can't be disappointed when they don't arrive.

    The most important thing to remember is that spamming the voice commands is, and always will be, the height of hilarity. Those that don't appreciate the genius of AHH TANK AHH TANK AHH TANK AHH TANK AHH TANK AHH TANK will be the first against the wall.

    What I want to know is how do the survivors KNOW it's called a tank?

    For all they know, the 'tank's' proper zombie name could be a Flesh Rumbler.

    The hunter could actually be a Growl'n'jumper.

    Where was I going with this?

    Well there was that one point where Francis calls the infected "Vampires".

    It's going to make less sense if the L4D2 survivors give them the same names. Although maybe the survivors pick up bits of parlance over the radio, like 'tank' just became a common, logical name for that infected and thus is the most common title. Or something.

    Agreed. In this game the farther away from everyone else you are, the more likely you will die.

    A less known but also useful piece of advice is that staying too close to one another can also get you killed. So for everyone listening, when you hear a boomer, try to be at least a yard or two away from each other. It can easily mean the difference between one person being hit (no big deal) and 3 or 4 players being hit (that could be trouble).

    We have never seen her mother, also i have not really completed ep two, the final mission annoyed me too much, they just threw so much at the player and called it an ending, it really dissapointed me

    Don't feel bad. I never finished Episode 2 either.

    Very true, but a yard apart isn't that far at all- its amazing how little spacings can make all the difference in the game.

They don't quite understand that I can't "pause" the game. I figured it'd be best to let the bot take over than just being a sitting duck for those 5-10 minutes.

    talking about where you like to be in the group, I prefer either middle of the pack, or rear. Also I find about a 2 or 3 yard spacing is crucial. it allows you to have plenty of room to maneuver, to see zombies with a clear line of sight at nearly all angles, and when someone's pounced it most likely won't effect you even when you're right next them. And I don't mind the back because I'm one of those "paranoid" type of players, constantly looking about, watching in the shadows for any swirling green bugs or a hoodie, or a bloated belly. Plus it allows me to see where everyone else is at.

    Only draw back is I'm target #1 for smoker pulls. :(

    Still honestly too early for "good" custom campaigns. At best you'll get some passable ones, since the SDK has only been out for like a month now.

    And unfortunately, a lot of the custom content that will get released will be Survival Maps, since they're much smaller and easier to make than full campaigns. :x

    Edit: If you're not too concerned with the quality of these early campaigns, you can always find a bunch on the fpsbanana site
