Difficulty changed
The difficulty level has changed for some time. If you play in "Easy", the game has become so brutally difficult, it's not longer funny.
This includes, among other things, the mall in the final and a few others.
Common Infected are in incredible hordes and individually without ceasing ...
Especially infected are now always in a double. Were you a Hunter on the ground, always comes a spitter and ♥♥♥♥es you fully.

What is your assessment of this?

So I am inclined to give the game to the "Red Card"!

I agree with you, in the last few days I notice that is really dificult even if you play in easy or normal mode, and yes the hordes came with a lot of special infected and even if a tank,kkkk it's a really challenge.

It is rumored that Valve turns up the difficulty on weekends.

Perhaps you've landed on modded servers? SP difficulty is exactly where it was. And there haven't been any updates to change difficulty anyway, unless they updated the server software.

I will try to figgure it out

L4D2 is a dynamic game, it doesn't need a patch, or anything else, to change how it deals with you.

If you are doing too well, the Director gets angry, no matter what difficulty you are on. Because Easy is easy, it’s a lot easier to tick the Director off really fast. If every time the Director director makes things harder, and you are still good, this makes the Director more angry, and he escalates things more. Increasing horde size, and tag team specials are a good sign the Director is angry at you. If the Director is having escalating anger issues consistently on any difficulty level, it is a good sign you are skilled enough to play at a higher level.

never noticed, still easy

To be honest... this game needs to be more challenging. I have played some REALLY hard games. And L4D 2 is easy comapred to them. Anyone remember the old 8 - bit NES days? That's how I began gaming.

The Ai Director gets angrier the better you play? So that's why that hunter tore me to shreds in only a few seconds.

They say the difficulty and the zombie is now stronger, but in easy and normal mode, I still can handle them. But one thing, the allies controlled by AI are still very stupid while the enemy(zombie) keep improving..

yeah. like if you do bad, i noticed it seems to go alittle easier on you. and if you do really good, it seems to shift it to be more challenging.

Realism Expert is the only fun I have with the game. Sadly no one in my region with decent connection plays it.

I´ve never heard something like this! That´s isn´t logical at all!

I don´t think that modded servers change the difficult in a that way that playing on easy is too hard after some time. Additionally he said that he experienced the difficult changes more than one time.
