or as I call it:

Left in a kinda dead/dying fashion, two.


I need people to campaign with, even scrubs. After the sale the number of good players is... off. They've mostly shut themselves off into Versus mode.

I don't care if you can't shoot, you just need to be able to communicate, and stay with the group.

If I could burn a short statement into any scrubs head, it would be:

STAY. WITH. THE. GROUP.

My god.
I have a friend who always romps off to be a hero when we play any sort of zombie game together.
Nazi Zombies, Left 4 Dead, Dead Island, you name it.
He has the attention span of some sort of thing that has a rediculously short attention span.

I do however have another buddy who is very like minded to myself.
If we have the supplies, we will defend a single stairwell relentlessly forever.

As for your problem, I don't do the PC thing, or have xbox live if that is your angle.
Otherwise I would spring to our aide.

It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

Ah, I hate when people charge off by themselves. And when they start going somewhere totally alone...
If they've been good, I'll usually buddy with them, if someone hasnt already. But noobs/asshats? I let them get eaten by a hunter. Gives the group time to make a good dash.

Left 4 Dead is all about teamwork. Playing versus mode you can see how much it really plays into everything about the game. A team being down 1 player means they have to sprint for the saferoom, because they can't really hold their own against 4 special infected [of the same skill level; noobs is a different story]. Versus has more skilled players, but if you ever played it you know it's just a frantic run from one saferoom to the next, and then preventing the enemy from doing the same; personally I don't find it too fun anymore.



I'm lookin for PC players, too, I figure I should have specified.

My buddy was always useful right up until he ran of somewhere.
Good player, bad ethics.

I have played the odd multiplayer match in Left 4 Dead.
Not really my cup of tea.
Though it was with strangers, so playing with friends would probably be better.

:lol: , yeah that happens, if you're a good enough shot, though, you can survive pretty well alone.

As for MP: Without friends or communication, a round of infected is usually pretty fast.

None of the abilities by themselves can manage the whole team, and using your ability always puts you at risk. So a pro team playing survivor can just pick you off one by one, and a pro team playing infected will kill you before you know what happened. It's another reason I don't like to play versus.

I will just stick to my war games, when I get the internet back up and running on my xbox.
