A message for the devs of L4D2
I really like the new changes. Having specials silently spawn 10 ft away then instantly attacking is a wonderful addition to the game. It removes all skill from the equation, which I think is what people really want in a game. Do you have any plans on ruining other valve titles, or just L4D2? Keep up the great work!

Calling out the Devs is a really childish thing to do. Also, this is nothing new, it has been around since the game came out, only thing you can do is be more aware of where SI can spawn from. Not to add in the fact that most of the 'silent spawn' accusations are not silent, it's just that people don't actually listen to their surroundings as carefully as they should.
Yeah the spawning has been kind of bad lately. It's one thing when you're playing, but when watching others stream and you watch specials randomly drop in areas without a sound it kind of sucks for them. Silent tank spawns are particularly bad, when you're in an area for a time and then turn a corner and bam tank.

Were you playing an addon map though? Some of them are worse than others, especially if you were playing a ported l4d1 map that wasn't totally finished (a lot from l4d2maps.us are like that).

There's also the spawn behind survivors distance thing, not sure if that's for just CI though.

sm_cvar spawn_behind_survivors_distance "50"

or whatever

Weird, my game is up to date, and my infected all make sounds. Nothing changed for me at all. All I can think is a sound mod screwed something up.. :/ Because I can hear a SI spawn down the road and exactly which side of the road they will be on.
