My first L4D2 experience and impression
First thing's first...I had a copy of the game since it's previous 75% off Sales [Not the autumn sales]
I got it as a gift,and stored it in my Inventory,to maybe gift it to a friend,so he can tell me his opinion on the game.

None of my friends where interested [I'm kinda a CS:GO guy,and most of my friends are as well]

E even read reviews from all over the place,even here,watched gameplays,and so on.

So,when I saw the game going for 75% off,I thought : why not try it myself ?


I had to wait exactly 11 minutes to play with someone.
After I finally got in a game,I played for what I guess it's 8 minutes,and got killed.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED IN THE GAME,NOT INTERESTING I GUESS :

I first played as a survivor,we lost pretty fast.
I think I sucked,I died 3rd...not being used to the game,I thought to myself,it's not that bad...
Then,when I played as a zombie or whatever I was,I got kicked by one of my teamates.
And before I even looked for my print screen button,I was kicked.
I have no idea what the reason was...I'm still not familiar with the HUD of this game.


Continuing and leading to the end of this ... text.

I know that every community has it's "dark alleys"...but can someone prove me that the majority of the community are good folks ?
That understand when new players arrive ?


Come to think about it,I saw admins on the server I play CS:GO that kicked players for not going for the objective,even after his team told him what he must do,over and over again.

But I really tried hard to kill the survivors as a zombie...isn't that the point,when you are not a survivor ?


Tl;DR : Can somebody prove me that the majority of L4D2 are good guys ?

My advice: Don't play versus with random people.
[WOODY] 4. des, 2012 @ 2:42pm 
Uhm...OK.
Thats a universal advice that should be followed in most games that don't have over thousands of servers in a server list.

I will admit,I ignored that,mainly because I was so excited about the game,that I just jumped in as fast as I could.


Any other advices,more related to L4D2 ?
Like...I don't know...something more unique for this particular game.

You just installed the game, hopped into multiplayer right away (after 0,3 hours AKA 15 minutes) not knowing how the game works, and you do not understand why they vote kicked you? Is this a joke?

My advice to you is to give it more time than only 15 minutes, and play single player THEN come play online. Unlike Counter Strike, this game is very coop based and is team focused. In CS if you get killed no one will care or notice since there are 20 players on 1 team and other good players can wipe out the other team. In L4D2, there are only 4 players, and it is very important on how you will play because you will ruin everyone's game if you do whatever you want.

Start with single player campaign until you have 5-6 hours, try online campaign until you can beat expert difficulty and deal with the hordes. Only then try VS. Otherwise, don't expect to stay for longtime in the match, people will notice you don;t know what you are doing and will kick you.

My other advice: If you are going to play with random people, campaign and survival is the way to go. They require more teamwork and your chances of being kicked are low.

Explain to me how this could be a joke ?
I have a pretty big sense of humour,so I might understand fast,after a more detailed comment.

I must admit another mistake : not playing the single player campaign.
I always played the single player first,before playing multiplayer.

Even in CS:GO,I first completed the weapons course,before playing.
Didn't help much,but it was a start.

I just wanted to check the experience of coop in L4D2...

Now that seems like a more related advice for L4D2.

Thank you,will take that in consideration,next time I will give it the second chance.

I was being sarcastic. It is just that I find it funny that you are surprised for being kicked after joining a multiplayer VS as your first try of the game. Basically you do not know anything about this game, how it works, what weapons there are and how to use them effectively, how to clear hordes and special infected, what to do on tanks or special events, etc, etc...there is just so much to it that it is inconceivable to play online without even trying single player. This should be never done, and it goes for ANY game. Learn the basics at least and then go play with other people. You don't risk ruining their game and getting kicked that way.

If you want, you can add me and play with me on Campaign Expert. (Sometimes Realism)
Bob Loblaw 4. des, 2012 @ 4:45pm 
My advice is play single player. Get comfortable with the Dynamics of the game. When to use your throwables/consumeables. Map flow and layout. How to handle a hoard/special/tank.

Would you be so astonished to wander on to a BF3 server years after release and get trounced by everyone and thing on the map?

When I started playing i had already had a good grasp of the game, this is cause i played the 360 version, as well as playing it on someone else's PC. Even so, I installed my game, and played a few campaigns in single player, on easy just to get controls all memerized and used to, then i pushed up to normal. After a while I joined Multi and spent a few months before i found a group of people who don't act like complete a**holes. My point is that practice helps, but you need to be patient before you can get a good grasp of everthing. It also helps when you practice Crowning, Deadstopping, and overall survivial.

I made the same mistake you made when I first played the game. After two or three offline campaigns I jumped into Versus and of course got kicked.

It is a good idea to play all of the campaigns offline/online several times so you know where you have to go. But I wouldn't listen to people telling you you'd need 100/200/300 hours in campaign before you can play Versus - because of course you learn nothing about playing the Infected in those 100/200/300 hours as survivor vs. bots. Instead, either play Versus with friends who tolerate mistakes while you learn or just live with getting kicked. It will happen a lot for justified or stupid reasons anyway.

Thank you all for the advices,tips and what not.

I see now where I made my mistakes,and I will admite them.

At this point,2 users offered to play with me,which looks like a big deal for someone to dedicate his time in trying to teach another player how to play.

I know this is hard,because I did it before,many,MANY times,both in games that are on Steam [CS:GO in particular],and in games that I belive not even 1% of all steam users,never heard of.



First things first,before adding anyone and/or going online again,I will try to finish the single player campaign.
I just hope it doesn't have any storyline related to the first L4D.


Thank you once again,for showing me that the community of this game,is not entirely made up of people that just hate a player for being new to the game.

Finishing the campaign is a good idea but... playing alongside bots can an will be a pain in a neck. Find at least ONE person to play with, using voice chat / skype, covering each other's back. It'll be A LOT richer experience. Teamwork really is crucial in L4D.
