Versus "skill system"
Don't know if anyone has ever talked about this but I think versus needs a skill system. I am so tired of getting paired with people that just don't know what to do in versus. I think this could help seperate new players from veterans of the l4d series. Hopefully this could be somerthing that gets put in any future l4d games. Thoughts?

Has been asked since the dawn of time so to speak, typical valve response "play with friends or play team vs", typical community response "play confogl or pro mod etc", neither is a real solution.

Hopefully l4d 3 (if it ever comes out) has a vs skill system or atleast allows an option for vs mode for people with more than xxx amount of hrs or optional veteran status search etc.

A ranking system would be incredibly useful in all game modes; excluding all <100 hr players in expert would take out the majority of the griefers. Unfortunately, there's no method for this currently, not even a server setting as I'm aware.

It would be nice to alleviate constant abuse of the vote kick function.

Indeed. I've tried the Versus mode for the first time a little while ago, and found myself kicked very quickly in virtually every match I join. Makes it difficult to get better at it if one isn't allowed chance to learn and improve. Besides, I play for fun, and couldn't care less about the competetive aspect. Perhaps include a seperate setting to indicate casual, competetive, etc, as well?

Yes... i feel your pain. I always seem to get the short end of the stick with new players. Players that don't speak english or just dont care to speak period. Or dont listen and have no versus experience. A ranking would be a big help to keep everyone on equal ground but i really dont see who they could impliment that into the game at this time unless there was an option to add a "level" or "Rank" or "Hours" restriction in the lobby such as you can with friends only.

A Versus tutorial or practice mode would also be a logical implimentation for newbs. The partial blame comes from no other real source to gain versus experience other than directly in versus matches. And often nothing is taught during these matches so they come out with no more knowledge than they did when they went in.

All of these suggestions seem logical and fair but Valve doesn't make logical/fair moves.

Yeah, you don't care about the competitive aspect, but the other players do. You coming into a competitive (y'know, versus) game and then turning a 4v4 into what is practically a 3v4 with your uselessness isn't going to make your team feel very supportive of you.

When I had this problem back when I started I went on youtube and watched as many 'Tips and Advice' videos for the game I could find and I found myself not getting kicked at all after that. Try that?

Make some binds you can press to quickly tell the other players who you are and where you live and maybe that you are a bit new to Versus but you're trying and WILLING to learn. In my experience this makes people much less likely to kick you unless they are really jerks.
