why l4d isnt gonna make it

Post by Yeti » Thu Feb 26, 2009 4:33 pm

so I just joined the yo server, on a versus game, and for once, the ppl on the server actually understand english, and yet after 30 sec from the begining of the game I hear "wait, who is this guy?", that was after I went out in no mercy's 3rd level to the right, to the stair case, instead of left, and said on voicecomm "lets go".
im pretty sure its not what I've said, cause you can barely hear me on voice any ways for some reason, but I got a vote kick against me, so two ppl already pressed yes, and the third goes "wait, why are we kicking him?"

So we continued playing, the other guy left, and those two kept talking, francis's char got replaced by a bot, and these guys start screaming at him, "come on francis you idiot!", "where are you going francis?", and kept talking to him, not about him, to him...

So I pointed out he was a bot, and they replied with "yes, we know"...

50% of the l4d games I join I get kicked of cause friends just want to play together, or because I actually want to get somewhere in the game instead of just sitting in the safe room waiting for the massayah.

L4D is an awesome game, its not NS but its fun, but instead of getting the 10-20% retards, u get about 70%, and since its that easy to kick ppl, as much as I love this game, I dont see myself playing it with any one but YO.

I never play public games, always organised with friends. Sadly it's how online gaming is in the majority of games now tbh.

I don't think I've ever played L4d with random people, that just doesn't appeal. With only 3 (or 7) others to play with, I want them to be people who I know will attempt to listen and use teamwork. Plus it's always more fun playing with people you know :)

To me, L4D doesn't seem like the kind of game you can go and play with a bunch of randomers, like CS or even NS.

Maybe the fun will wear out at some point but for now it's keeping me perfectly happy :)

the random ppl are by definition random - you meat great guys or the not so. so you get kicked once in a while - what do you expect from frenchies? :roll: :mrt:

Well, I guess you're right, non YO ns did have a lot of dodgy "random" ppl. I kinda forgot I used to play only on YO.....
What happened to ppl....

Is there a possibility to turn votekick off and put a 90/120 sec afk kick timer? and maybe tk punish, incase some one goes into rampage.

I take my words back, i was really disappointed with my random server gaming experience yesterday. the most annoying is uneven teams 4 vs 2 in versus is just enraging.
and of course the connection problems. the valve's preffered way of connecting just plainly sucks.

Just don't do public, they are and will always be horrible thanks to the large amount of pure idiots who manage to find the on-switch on their PC.

So just stick with the YO L4D group, if there's not enough people on to get a game going when you want to, go play something else.

It's a gay thing, don't bother Yeti.

I, on the other hand, love to play public matches! It is a rare opportunity to meet new people from different exciting cultures and try to explain em in half broken German why they are so bloody ignorant for not following you and how they lost WW2.
I'm pretty easy to get along with once you people learn to worship me.

Perhaps they need to introduce co_ maps!
