Left 4 Dead 2 has awful bots
I could expect bad bot like this if it would be a 90's game. Anyone else annoyed especially over the survivor bots?

yup hate the bots during versus with my friend.For example im being beaten to death while they do either 2 things: 1.they just stand there watching me die and going in circles(90% is ellis) im being killed by a charger and they use one pistol to shoot it(90% is coach)

And then you die, because they get really confused when a smoker grabs you.
Before they can revive you, they're grabbed by a charger, hunter or jockey respectively. Game over!

THEN you can shoot them. And retry again.

The same thing just happened to me... I got grabbed by a smoker, Rochelle was down, Coach was grabbed by a hunter and Ellis just stood there, punching zombies with his gun...

The bots do the best with what they can. You have to remember they've got more to manage than the average FPS AI, and nothing will ever be perfect. I agree there are spots where they could be finer-tuned, such as a double-incap scenario, ladders, and line of fire, but they're really not all that terrible.
Having the Improved Bots mod helps a whole lot too.

Hopefully not so bad in L4D3

I once was incapped by a hunter, Coach is already dead, and Ellis got smashed by a charger all the way behind the map. Rochelle who is following me left me after she killed the hunter to help Ellis all the way across the map..
And guess what happens next?
The charger killed Ellis and by the time Rochelle running back to me I died...

Bots on l4d1 r betta

The bots have moments of brilliance, like when coach's auto shotgun nails a boomer from a seemingly impossible distance, or in the bushes when you can't see it. They are useless, though, on anything beyond normal difficulty. On normal, they survive just fine, heal you and will help where they can. I can even forgive stupidity like running into acid spit to save an incapped survivor, then getting incapped themselves. The things I don't understand is why they take so long to save you when a smoker clearly is pulling you. They wait until it starts damaging you before freeing you.

If you're on 100 health you can take the 10 damage that it gives. But if the AI director is being mean that day and you're barely dragging your badly beaten carcass to the next saferoom, unless they shoot and kill it quickly, the smoker will be like an annoying mosquito. You're gonna kill it eventually, but it's going to come away with some health and it's going to a irritate you in the process.

Although, to be fair, it would be like a mosquito that could give you malaria and kill you because the smokers can constrict you to death and unless it's one massive mosquito, you're not going to become anaemic too quickly. Still, there's a good enough comparison in there somewhere...

Yep, the AI programming / pathfinding in l4d2 is lazy at best, where as in l4d1 it is much better - anyone who disagrees go play part 1 put yourself in bad positions as a survivor then do the same in part 2 and compare.

On L4D2 i seen a new "bug" with bots.

Coach was 1hp and dont heal hiself 2 times. ( I dont take a screenshot )

He was at the middle of the stage, we wait him 8mn...
