L4D and L4D2 (What Has Happen To Them)
I have both games, enjoyed them alot in the past, and love to get new maps/campaigns to increase my entertainment.
But these days, it seems that about 90% or more of the games I 'll play now (mostly all are public games and on official sites), are fill with disappointment, due to the fact of questionable activities.
ex: I join a game and my pings are 30 to 40 connection to the server, yet while playing the game, it is acting like I have a connection of 200+ pings and the console fills up with lines of text (colored red), then I start rubber banding (lagging and screen jumping back and forth), and the opposing side is moving super fast, and getting one shot kills on me and getting like 400+ damage per shot with a level 1 weapons (9mm pistol, mackine gun, pump shot gun, etc( not Level 2 weapons such as a m16, ak, assault shot guns, etc.)). Also when I am the survivors, it takes a clip or more to kill them, and you cannot melee them off and or stop their attacks (such as a jockey's ride, a hunter's pounce, a smoker's pull, and even a charger's charge), and even if you did stop their attack immediately and or very quickly, your health is like 1 to 40 after their attack, yet when you are the special infected, then every attack from your side is immediately and or very quickly stop and with little or no damge is givien to them.
I realize teamwork is a must, for a team to do well, but this leads me to question their activivties.
Both games are products of Valve, and are they not protected by VAC and or moderated?
I have serveral friends who has complained to me with the same type of incidents.
Does Valve know of this, and is Valve looking into this, and is Valve going to address these problems, and correct them ?
I certainly hope they do, otherwise, it will lead me to limit my use of these games, and leave me with a sour taste with Valve, since they are their products and I paided to be able to play them.
If you have these incidents too, and have any helpful comments, please post.
