Special Delivery Teamate Wanted

I need 1 teamate to accompany me on a game of special delivery, expert, without bots. I don't mind if you have a mic or not, as good teamates are generally aware of their surroundings anyway and thus don't need a mic for this gamemode.

I want to record it and put it on youtube, but the bots are too slow and the farthest I got on Dark Carnival was to the motel before I ran into the witch, which happened to be spawned in the narrowest part of the room that leads to the other side of the motel :/

I'm not planning on beating it first thing, I just want to experiment and see if it would be doable to play this mode with 1 good teamate and no bots, as every other mode (except hard 8 and vs modes) is unchallenging.


After trying this with a friend, I've decided to postpone recording until we get a proper set of techniques / strategies down. Playing with 2 players and no bots would be the ultimate challenge on special delivery expert. I just have to discover the do's and don't's and discover some strategic rules before proceding with the recording.

Still looking for anyone willing to do this. We'll have to first come up with a general strategy. The map will be Dark Carnival.

Where do you live? If you're on the East coast (close to NYC), I'm up for it, otherwise ping's gonna be too much of an issue.

West coast. I've played with people on the east coast before and it doesn't seem like too much of a problem though.

Yeah, but I'm in Europe, so... I ping 85-90 to the East coast, pretty playable, but close to 200 to the West coast, playable on Advanced, even regular Expert when being careful, but definitely NOT against ten SIs at once.
Generally when we play Special Delivery on Expert, we have to turn on infinite ammo (although we play with two bots). With so many SI and such a short respawn timer, reloading ends up being the weak link.

Pretty doable with the military sniper and dual pistols. Closing doors and letting weak SIs alive (Spitters, Smokers) helps a lot.
haven't played it extensively but I did play through a few campaigns (although on Advanced) with three bots, and I did just fine (well, I did, 90% of the time all three bots served as bait as I made a dash to the safe room).

I would be willing to play. I play with Europeans on the "PW survival" servers and although my ping is high, suprisingly it's not all that laggy. I think we would need a good server though. Let me know if you would want to try it.

Well, I don't know any good servers, I tend to host my own local server, and it's surprisingly stable for everyone, apart from the obvious delay, there's no packet loss, dislocation or anything that tends to happen on dedicated servers.
I don't know if it would make for a playable match in Special Delivery, but if you wanna try, I'm up for it.
I'll join you.

Local server means we would play on your or my computer, which is fine if everyone's from the same country but it seems unstable for playing accross continents. Add me if you want and we'll play some special delivery xD
