Community is bad
Every time I join a game people are trash talking. There has been the rare odd game this hasn't been the case but most people are trash talkers. You don't even have to say anything to someone and they will still do it. I had someone trash talk ME a whole game, I didn't say a thing, I was winning, but because I had a Christian link on my profile. Or if people find out i am a girl they trash talk over that. lol. But if it wasn't for the noobs trolling all the time the game wouldn't be fun. I only play the game here and there over a long period of time, the community has gotten smaller but worse lol.

But the game wouldn't be as fun if there wasn't so many trolls. Anyone else play just because of the community? :P

I had trouble getting over the fence in one of the campaign modes and the guy refused to tell me what to do(he laughed) before cursing me out and raging hard for holding everyone up.

The good part is that most of the community is good and majority of the people aren't complete ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. Ignore the stupid trolls because they have absolutely no life and assume no one has responsibilites in the real world like school, work, kids, etc. that interfere with us playing video games 24/7 to learn every single game secret inside and out.

Add me if you ever wanna game, I'm a laid back campaign player and I help everyone equally regardless of their skill level.

"Community is bad, but the game is fun because of trolls."

So, what's the point of this thread then?

Once upon a time when L4D first game out the community was great and lots of fun was had. As soon as the first set of sales came along the game systematically became worse over time with every new sale. This was compounded when people realised there was no point playing the game if you couldn't "win" the game. Rage quits half way through the game became common place. Then it was rage quit if you got one bad wipe early on. This meant half or more of the team would rage. Then came the surge of ♥♥♥♥♥♥ mods that ruined the game (except the small few that actually helped gameplay) ones that would force you to alt F4 because they won't let you leave. People complained the reason why they left maps early was because they were too long. So, Valve made DLC maps that had fewer maps for faster play, what happened? People just rage quit a lot faster because the real reason is people can't take losing and can only have fun when they're winning. This rage bred trolls and more sales means more trolls. One day it will be Trollpocalypse and the game will be reduced to pure chaos.

The troll community cannibalised the game into an unplyable nightmare. Only sales keep this game alive I feel.

A good chunk of the community is bad, there's no hiding that. If people can do nothing but curse I'm rather certain that their intellect is much below average, especially if they can't string together basic sentences without tossing in a couple of curses. Anyway, I find it amusing when trolls annoy their team and later become incapped and start shouting for help only to be 'left 4 dead' *Badum tss*

Dunno what you guys are talking about. Out of the games I've played I've never been trolled. Perhaps you just play too much?

You might be the one that's bad at the game... not the community. This game heavily relies on team work and well pretty much learning the how to's in the game. When you have a player who makes constant mistakes that jeapordize the team winning, it can get downright frusterating. Don't take it personal just get better. We have lots of old players who don't have patience for noobs :3

If you make sure you are good at campaign before you jump into versus you'll have a better experience. You'll still have to deal with ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s but not as many. Hell, I've played this game over 600 hours, know it inside and out and I still have people trash talking me on my own team. I literally just had a guy call me a f****** ♥♥♥♥♥ over his mic because I took a molie.

Im a girl and i've been trolled too more than once, but there's always someone nice to play with.

I get kicked out of most servers for no reason =(

I would probably troll you for being christian to be honest, but if it makes you feel any better I'm one of 15 people on steam who isn't sexist. if you don't want people to attack you for being christian, don't make it obvious on your profile, pretty simple.

Regardless of the trolling and bs'ing the major problem with this game is people modding. The plus side to this is that most Modders are god awful at this game lol so if you're half ♥♥♥ decent you can shut them out. As for the terrible community, all popular games have a dumpster-style community. Look at Leage of Legends? It's like a land fill. What people are saying is pretty true though, practice in campaign solo or with friends, then go versus. Because if you don't know the game too well, there are other people that live the game and will rage.

If anyone wants to play though and doesn't wanna get raged at or trolled, I love this game but don't have anyone to play with anymore as everyone has moved on.

listen, if you are over 18, use a mic, and just want to have fun. Add me to your friends list and I am down to play. I hate pick up games and none of my friends actually own this game. Ill play with anyone as long as you want to enjoy your time while you play.
