you're quite a few months too late....

It was given free over the Holiday Sale, as for when it is going to happen again, who knows. Maybe never. I wouldnt be surprised if it goes free to play after L4D3 comes out, but again no one knows the answer to that except Valve.

Not for quite some time, I would expect.

I hope you aren't assuming that because it had that free day around Christmas that Valve think it isn't worth selling anymore, because that's demonstrably incorrect.

That was done for a reason - it's most likely they had something new they wanted to test, and needed an instant increase in players, or something like that.

It still sells so there's absolutely no reason for it to be released for free. Besides, how many of the other, older games have become free?

One - Team Fortress (and no, DOTA isn't included).

Dont worry, you are not missing out that much. The game itself can be fun, but the community is the single worst ive ever had the misfortune to meet, and is basically ruining the entire multiplayer.

Not at all true.

As with any multiplayer it depends when you play during the day, and how YOU behave too.

If you play predominantly when kids are home from school, this not only atrracts younger, more naive players, but people who are rude too, as it's an environment they can get away with it easier.

If you play as late as possible, you can get the more mature and more helpful player.

I'm not saying in your case that you are to blame, but I have seen plenty of posts from people who claim they were being insulted, harrassed, etc and when digging deeper it appears they were being provocative.

I think it's prudent to treat it like everything in life - you get out of it what you put in. All I can tell you is that I still play it from time to time and rarely get any rude or bad players - on the contrary, most I meet are good team players with empathy.

You have yet to meet the Dark Souls II community.

it also depends on your location, I find that in some areas you'll run into more of the toxic players, while in others you won't. East Coast seems to be filled with them, it's not even big things that get you kicked, once I grabbed a shotgun, turns out, other dude wanted to use a shotgun, votekick. It was just a gun and I got it first, but meh.

It doesnt matter how you behave for most idiots in this game. You can be kind, talkative, silent, an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, in 3 of 4 times its all the same. Havent played in some time, so that might have changed by now, but i doubt it. And those that ive found the most annoying are less the cod kids from after school but the die hard nolifers.

Typical scene as i remember it: You help him up, half the team continues in the meantime, cause yolo. As soon as hes up he rushes forward, and you get grabbed by the smoker that was just spawning. He ignores it ( or not ) either way, he gets downed too, starts cursing at you for staying behind, starts kickvote.
You dont heal him when he has already used his medikit up? Kickvote
You grabbed the gun he wanted? Kickvote.
You just joined and did nothing but write hi in the chat so far? Kickvote
You are the first in the saferoom? Kickvote
You are the last in the saferoom? Kickvote
You are least ranked in the group cause you just joined? Kickvote
You had a bad run? Noob! Kickvote
You have a good run? Hacker! Kickvote
You are just there? Kickvote
You rezzed him? Kickvote.
You couldnt rez him cause he died a mile behind or is swarmed ( or whatever)? Kickvote

Could go to gamestop, pay like 20 bucks for steam card (or 50 and 100 bucks) then buy it if you are old enough.
