Versus: winners go infected first?
Is there a way to make the winning team go infected first in versus? It's a pretty big advantage to start as survivors because it lets you know how to stack your infected classes to maximize tanks and witches.

No way to do it without maybe serverside mods. Anyway going infected 2nd lets you know where the items all are and when tanks and stuff spawn which is a far bigger advantange.

The biggest advantage is still going survivor second in scavenge.

Minor advantage with imo no consequences on the final result

In theory. In practice it's almost impossible to win when going survivor first, in public that is. Maybe knowing how many cans they need makes them focus more on the game or something, but after playing over a hundred scavenge games, I'm pretty sure this is a fact.

I don't play scavenge mode and knowing where guns are is irrelevent once you know where the item spawn points are. It gets very difficult to avoid a witch if you go survivors second because the infected will stack up a jockey/charger/smoker/boomer combo to really screw you up. There's a similar situation with tanks.

If it can't be done easily, that's fine. Either way it's not a huge difference. I just find it odd it's sort of stacked in favour of the winning team.

versus_winning_team_goes_last 1 - "In versus mode, the team that is losing plays as survivors first."

If that doesn't work, there are surely Sourcemod Plugins that can switch the order.

Thanks, Lemmers, I think that's done the trick!

I think its a bigger disadvantage for survivors to go first and not know if/were a tank/witch will appear. This gives the second team going a chance to prepare for a tank/witch.
