Kicking is the ruin of Versus mode
You can be the best player in the world, but if someone whants to kick you only for a single mistake, he'll do it and will make your day bad.

I don't care if someone is the best player in the world. If he or she comes in & begins to grief / troll a game I am in, I am not going to tolerate that behaviour. I message or speak to the other players in the game. Then I do a vote kick. If the griefer / troll has a bad day since we kicked them, it's their problem.

Griefer and Troll MUST be kicked.
I'm referring to people that start voting for kick on noobs, only because they are not good players.
First times it happened to me, but now that I became a little more experienced, I've been kicked several times (even being the best player in the match) for no reason.
More than the half of people agree so I think they are friends playing together.
We play to have fun. Everyone should have fun.

Us Noobs can't get better unless we play with better people. It's called facilitated learning.

I can start a game to be kicked 2 seconds later, and my laptop isn't good enough to host a server.

Everyone expects me to be psychic and never hit push to talk to even quickly explain were to be. Because people expect everyone to play the game according to a specific set of rules and locations which are A) never revealed to me and B) take the fun out of the game.

"OMG you're 3 seconds behind us because you dared stop to help that other person instead of me/try and get that smoker, let's kick you".

Someone said to me that Some people jsut want a quick play through and win, and noobs get in the way with that. To that, I say PLAY SOLO OR WITH FRIENDS YOU KNOW ARE GOOD. It's unfair to kick people because they lack skill, thus denying them the oppertunity to gain it.

Zone, you say you still get kicked as a good player, so newcomers have no hope, and this is why L4D is doomed. People are being selfish and not letting others play.

Completely agree

I recommend that you can either play with some friends (in real life, or "Friend" the partners you've previously played with and trust so you can play with them in the future) or just avoid quick match altogether. Co-op campaign is good for those that want to play for the fun of it, but you'll still get a mixed bag no matter what you do. Trust me, there's still some friendly players on here. But if you're brand new to the game, I recommend that you play some of L4D alone first, to get a handle of the controls and figure out the objectives for each level. ^-^

My friends prefer 2, I prefer 1, and aren't usually free to play anyway. And I have no in-game friends because I've only really had the misfortune of people who are kick-happy.


I'm not new to the game, I have 128.4 hours on record. I'm just not a good gamer (for various reasons).

The L4D online community overall (of course there ar always some nice people) is very unwelcoming of anyone who hasn;t already played enough online to know the tactics the community has formed, rather than that figured out by playing offline. Because of that, you never learn and are always kicked. It's a cycle.

That can be a pain sometimes. I was playing on Vs. once and a teammate went AFK. We tried to kick him but we couldn't. We had 3 survivors because he wouldn't do a darn thing, and 3 infected as well. He was the boomber, so we had none for an entire round, making it near impossible to slow them down. A better solution is playing with at least 1 friend. They will say 'no' when someone tries to kick you.

I was having the perfectly same thought with the "cycle" idea. You steal the words out of his mouth :)

l4d is a terrible game,
Being kicked is just part of the l4d experience.

Kicking is practically the only subject that arises in Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 forums. I completely agree with you. Mind if I add you?

I'm by no means a good player and I've been kicked 3 times today and someone left the game because of me. I don't mind being kicked at all as I'm not really interested in playing with people who don't want to play with me in the first place, however and more importantly, the reasons are questionable at best.

Most of the time it's just because people fail to understand that they're not the top priority at all times. Especially on these servers with Realism mod or something, people expect you to save them right away after you've been blinded by bile and all you can hear is the punching sound of zombies. Sometimes I even wonder if it was theoretically possible to help this person earlier.

The more hours I have in this game, the more I think everytime you 'fail' - either because you really do or you just don't abide by the unwritten and telepathically transmitted rules of someone else - people assume you're intentionally sabotaging their game and it's all your fault that they cannot 'shine'.

They are acting in a way most people would - so I guess it might be the nature of L4D itself that leads to this problematic behaviour.
