My Afternoon on L4D2
Just felt like sharing a hilarious story after an attempted run through Parish on expert. I realize there's a danger that comes with playing in public lobbies and I usually laugh it off whenever we get stuck with a griefer, but what happened today was so funny that I feel like it's worth writing about.

So, people dropped in and out as they usually do, and only one other guy was with me halfway through map 3. We get these two idiots who join in and start opening fire on us, and shortly after the party gets wiped. I try to votekick one and the votes go 2-2, so at this point I roll my eyes since at this point it's obvious that they're accomplices...misery loves company, after all. We start over from the saferoom and like any good, creative griefer, one immediately grabs the auto-shotty and kills us while his friend goes idle. Neither one leaves the room, so I decide to put some music on to entertain myself while I sit in silence and watch how long it takes these two morons to hijack the game.

The guy who was playing with me said a few choice words, then eventually got frustrated and left, and then of course I was votekicked right after, but after two or three failed votekicks by them, I couldn't help but to start cracking up at how pathetic these sorts of people must be. This♥♥♥♥♥♥is so broken.

Ain't even mad...I learned long ago not to take these sorts of things seriously, but that's my afternoon. This sort of thing has probably happened to countless others, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating. Anyone else have a story like this to share?

Yes. I've had a similar thing happen, although it was one guy with two accounts. That's even more pathetic when you think about it.

it was more fun before it went free.

that people dont know the maps is default. but sometimes they never played a fps in general. i like "2 team guys from cs", "russians who can run and never look back or help", "1 guy that going back alone", "1 guy going forward alone when tank spawns", "4 germans in a team".

the bugs, abuses, cheats and the high luck factor arent helping either :(

i remember a very good versus match, teams were balanced which was a wonder, and then 1 guy falls down in a closed elevator (bug). laugh? cry? deinstall the game?

i tried gathers and groups for play, ok they had less quits and these players behave more mature. but the games were more boring zzz and unfunny as chaotic publics.

its safe to say the game is broken and cant be fixed. also its to late. even though the developers did an impressive work to fix many things and bugs.

I'm going back a while but I was playing No Mercy on expert with one of my Steam friends, we also had 2 pub players in the game, everything went fine until we got to the lift area just before the roof, one guy left the game and another took his place, we come out the lift and start to make our way towards the safe room, for no reason whatsoever this new guy that joined opened fire on me with the shotgun, incapped me and then immediately left the game.

What was the point? I have no idea but he obviously got some kind of enjoyment out of it.

Screw that, what exactly do people hope to accomplish by being total douches like that?

Cool story bro, BTW.

some time ago i've joined a random lobby in l4d2 map 1 versus.
my three mates were something like "buds" i assume because they all jumped down the balcony and then left the game.
after a short laugh and my quote "♥♥♥♥ humanity"

i almost left, but i said to myself, "let's just try for fun how far i would come alone against 4 at the first map with just an axe and 1000 spots for them to death charge me or to ambush me".

then when i was at the elevator someone joined but left right after.

just thought "game over" one charger got me but i lvled him (my fifth one, and no i don't train that♥♥♥♥♥♥ it must've been pure luck because he would've had me.
then blocked a jockey right after and killed him.

they started to flame each other and ofc wanna tell me i'm cheating.
but not to fast, i got more luck than ever because right close before the saferoom a smoker spawned and as soon as i heard him, i turned and cut his flying tongue with melee just out of the 360, without being precisely.

since then, i really regret not having it on tape...
sure there were other epic solo runs out of the

"you have to because your mates are death and they understand it because they know i'm not a rusher who wants that 60% off sale♥♥♥♥♥♥♥right at the saferoom"

but you know, there is no way to just open fraps or else while being in versus... alive.. against 4.. alone..! and i don't have enough space to just random record.
