Yay whining time! (Wall of text)
I despise people in this game despite me playing to strictly help out. I stick to easy because it's easier to help out people there and I swear there's just less idiots but easy is just too damn boring. I decide to give normal another shot since I'm so paranoid about it. I join a No Mercy finale, I'm dead already as I join, I decide to stick around because I know they're going to lose, and surely enough they do because everyone was spread out and running around. Also ignoring any messages I sent about a special infected being nearby or where their location was, or telling them to fall to a safer place. We win next round because I helped out in clearing the SI and they stuck around places where they were safer for the most part.

I join a Parish game, second level, we start the crescendo and Coach stays behind, he won't move from there despite the objective being clear. He finally decides to move ahead but Nick gets incapped because Ellis ran too far ahead, so by the time it takes me to get to Nick he's dead, great! Ellis runs back and gets his defib out, and does nothing. I stay there by the corpse and tell him to revive him but next thing I know Coach got incapped, I see Ellis going up the stop the alarm so I figure to help coach out. Of course he doesn't help me and doesn't shoot anything while the horde just keeps stepping down on him, i clean up again and again but one or two zombies still kick him down while he just does nothing. I say ♥♥♥♥ it and try to help Ellis who got incapped himself, and then he died. So I'm there alone and realize he never shut down the alarm. So after surviving another horde alone i have to do it again, luckily I could jump on a fence and camp, finally i'm able to revive nick as he was the most competent teammate. We make it to the saferoom and I decide to just quit as I don't want to see how the rest of the campaign was going to play out because I was already baffled and irritated.

And sadly in Easy I get people who listen more and know what to do more, like I don't have to even tell people there to stay near each other and back each other up in a finale or to simply move the ♥♥♥♥ forward in those events. Are people in advanced or expert any better? I avoid those because I'm not perfect with friendly fire all the time and I'm more paranoid about people there, also I figure there's more raging and kickvotes for one mistake.

If you're a decent player advanced is pretty good. The majority of griefers/trolling noobs go to expert, so advanced is usually fairly safe and just has people who decided to play advanced as a concious decision in an effort to get better.

Did you seriously just quote a wall of text to say that.

Guess I'll give it a shot, would give me more incentive to control my shots.

If you're really interested in bettering your friendly fire, there are a few things you can do. Pick up a magnum and aim for the CI's feet, let your teammates get all the kills, shove first before shooting when you see something happening.
Wild Card Apr 28 @ 2:52pm 
Yeah I've gotten into a habit of shoving infected, mostly away from my teammates if they're reloading or if I want to have a safer shot. I would love to rely on the magnum but I don't see it as often as a melee weapon =/.

I usually just play on Normal because it's more lenient with friendly-fire, while still presenting some sort of challenge. Maybe I'll try Advanced someday.

My new addiction is realism normal or advanced.. So fun.. until someone joins and goes "I CAN NEVER DIE!" and runs off and gets killed. Even if it was a friend.. I go nuts, I just wanna end with a 0 death score, is that so much to ask XD
[linux] sophia Apr 28 @ 3:02pm 
Realism advanced? Better watch out, you'll get stuck in it before long :)

I always do adv if possiable, if you want a challege and a caring team mate etc lol
Wild Card Apr 28 @ 5:38pm 
first advanced campaign I did and I get the best team I've had in ages, clean as hell run.
Visi Apr 28 @ 5:51pm 
Random advance games usually go pretty well. I've had extremely bad luck today with oblivious people and trolls, but most of the time it isn't like that. I used to regularly play on normal, but switched to advanced months ago and never looked back. Learning to shove and controlling your friendly fire is important. The occasional accidental shot here and there isn't a big deal, but It's not fun having a teammate do more damage to you in one chapter than you've taken the whole campaign.
Wild Card Apr 28 @ 6:04pm 
Yeah, the only time I ever did some damage was when a teammate got into my line of fire as I was shooting down a tank, it incapped him but we didn't suffer any losses for it as the tank died relatively quickly after that. Surprised me how slow and careful everyone was, it was great. Thanks for the advice btw.
Visi Apr 28 @ 6:15pm 
Yeah, that's another thing to keep in mind; not getting into other people's lines of fire. lol. Friendly fire isn't always the shooter's fault.
I share your frustration with people not using their pistol(s) when incapped though. Had that happen today more than once.

Anywho, I'll probably land in one of your games if you stick to advanced. Hopefully your experiences on this difficulty will be considerably better. ^_^

if you're consciously committed to avoiding FF simply stop shooting full auto.. shoot in 3 round bursts.. firstly this will gradually improve your aim and second it will allow you to more effectively STOP shooting when an oblivious teammate runs into your line of fire.. if you do hit him you will only likely hit him with one or two bullets.
Wild Card Apr 29 @ 11:25am 
Yeah I've been doing 3 round burts when there's not much going on and we're simply cleaning up and moving along. I do go full auto when there's a tank or a charger on my teammate, besides that I tend to be careful but I think I'm way too paranoid about friendly fire as I've seen people do it more than I have. ._.
