Why 95% of L4D2 gamers destroy the gas station before the event??
I often play No Mercy because it is the favourite ones in the community in VS. In 3rd Chapter is the gas station and 95% of L4D2 gamers destroy the gas station before the event. Why??? It is more logical that you destroy it after you go up with the lift because it kills the hordes that come from that direction. Or it is because the community cant wait for the "BIG ACTION"? -_-

I prefer to leave it alone for the common kills or tank kill assistance, but the first thing people do is shoot it.

Smoker pulls one survivor to the gas station. Or Charger, Jockey...
Other survivors shoot to free him.
BOOM.
One dead.

I've always seen it as simply somthing that could get you killed as surivior, and that must be why peaple shoot at it, but yeah you're right it probably helps lower the horde.

It can only kill a survivor when it explodes. That happens when
  • you shoot it directly (like it is the topic here)

  • or when a SI grabbs a survivor and you shoot the gas station accidentally.
The 2nd point does not happened often so i think we can forget this.
So why shoot the gas station?? Or as i said it is because the community cant wait for the "BIG ACTION"? -_-

I have killed all the surviors at least twice by smoking one to a gas pump and them all getting blown up, its common sense when playing versus to remove the threat of any instant kill

Depends on the mode if i as playing campaign on expert i would consider using it to kill horde but in versus its just an unessacry risk especially against a decent opponent

...I must be one of the 5% then.

I destroy it for avoid a possible incap by a griefer.

My ADD kicks in very frequently.

If you get smoked into it, or charged into it, then you aren't very good at clearing or your team isn't very good at clearing.

Well unfortunately i having quite managed to develop the skill to command pubs like my pawns to not run straight incoming threats or to predict what they will do and when but if you would teach me i would be in your debt.

Because ppl are not confident enough to leave it intact, really though ppl should (if they find a bile jar) when the lift starts throw it at the gas station then shoot the gas station to me that is the best choice. But pubs are pubs, and well..
