250 hours in, comments to valve
superb work. l4d1 was excellent, and the sequal is just superb. I love playing
counterstrike against zombies. I greatly appreciate the effort put in over the life
of the game so far, importing every single l4d1 map was very kind, and much
appreciated by all. I look forward to buying l4d3 :)

very good focus on the most important aspects of the game:
-the game is entirely player skill limmited. your skill as a player
limmits your ability to protect teamates, kill zombies and survive
not the game mechanics. the players timing and coordination is key.

-lag is very well controlled, engine is efficient and the game responds
very fast to player input.

-headshots: because headshots.

one warning though, do not ever involve yourselves in pay to win.
your audience playing left 4 dead 2 are playing because of the focus on
player skill being the primary determinant of success... pay to win would
throw your current fans away, and invite newer... inferior "fans"

well done good sirs.

"much appreciated by all" regarding the ported campaigns is a massive overstatement.

Nobody in Valve is ever gonna read this. The NSA will though. But because I'm not American, I don't care.

Oh, and, I don't want to disappoint you, but L4D3 is not going to happen because Valve doesn't know number 3.

There are millions of thoughts I think, but none of them shall be known to you.

You sure-as-hell cared enough to mention the NSA.

To reply to the topic creator, I completely agree with your sentiments, and I severely look-forward to playing the sequel, whether or not it's being worked on now, is a different story.

Lol, the NSA does not just spy on Americans my friend. They are already aware that you're wearing your favorite polka-dot thong.

In as little as two years. In as many as never. L4D3 ain't gonna happen until Valve officially says it will, no sooner.
Don't sound so certain, it's Valve we're talking about.

just another comment about the valve team working on l4d2

throughout the post development of l4d2 I watched as there were regular meaningful
patches and content expansion. they stated that they were going
to try and add some content and with more sales they would be more motivated to
add more content... the game sold well, they added good content... the game kept selling
very nicely, they kept adding content... ultimately someone who missed out on l4d1
and jumped into l4d2 is getting both games for the price of l4d2 (probably on sale)

they worked on all sorts of user tools to generate their own content post sale
as well as porting the client and server to linux. (server first).

I expect valve to do as they did when they were working on l4d2... underpromis
and overdeliver... respect for that.

in a time where "reuptable" top earning game companies are utterly fleecing markets
with shoddy, lazy workmanship I'm pleased to have gotten such good value and quality from l4d2. It makes me trust the team responsible to deliver in the future.
