How to tell if you are on a glitched or misconfigured server
A lot of us recently have been having issues with bad servers as of late that have glitched finales that will not let you finish or instantly bring the endings in L4D1 campaigns. The quickest way to find out if the server is not properly configured is to take some pills when you are below 98 health. If you have the same amount of temporary (non-solid) health after 30 seconds, you're on a misconfigured server and you will likely not get a proper finale or ending.

There is also another way, but it involves a bit more knowledge of maps and campaigns. If you are on a map where you know where tanks and witches do not spawn, for example Dead Center 1st map or Parish 1st map, but notice a tank or witch spawn, you're on a glitched server.

Start your own game in official dedicated server or local server.

Official Dedicated servers have become an issue, with the Pinion servers being on OD, there's been an increase of Official Dedicated servers messing up. That's all I would ever use up until now but due to the force advertising, poorly set up servers being on the Official Dedicated list, I've been getting off of them as of late. Local Hosting is good for some cases, but all in all, if you're on a pub, Local Host puts others at a bit of a loss.

The Dark Carnival camp is totally messed up. The second to the last stage (the gate run) is not working right, there is no second wave of the horde and in the finally the helicopter comes right after you start the event.

Yeah, that's due to one of these servers, figured finding out on the first and second level is a lot better than getting to the 4th part with a bile you saved.
