I hope the community is at least partially better. Whenever I play and we go through a chapter or two all of sudden I'm voted to get kicked for no fucking reason. I rush or stick with the team depending what they do, I cover them and try to shove anything off them.

All because I have 64 hours is my guess. Is there some fucking requirement where you need 5000+ hours to play now?

Gabe is so luck, being able to put himself in videogames like that.

While I like the art style of those early models, they were going to be redesigned anyways, they weren't really consistent with the zombie models drawn at that time in development.

If they got canned, it was because it was inconsistent with the gameplay. The one running around screaming? I think it's cool but realistically, it would make the team stop progressing to hunt him down or face him, which would take a lot of time, and in versus that would ruin the flow of the game.

I thought the ratman was turned into the spitter later on, and the giant colossal zombie with zombies for hands couldn't fit through much of the geometry of the level if he was that scale.

I like the art, but being realistic it was going to change.

So am I the only one who thinks the creepiest part is that its "hands" are literally just bodies from the neck down?

Again, I think that would ruin the flow of versus, it's supposed to allow you to keep moving if your team isn't garbage.

>>257654614
While I know that's true, you have to think about the limits of the infected. Sure, their goal is to stop you, but ones like the Meatwall who CAN stop you so easily and readily, is just not fun for a versus game where the goal for the survivors is to keep moving no matter what.

The new one probably won't have many new specials, they have one for each major function as it is. One that pins (hunter), pushes (charger), pulls (smoker), spreads the survivors (spitter), pushes them back together (boomer), and a damage dealer (witch and tank) and one that is not very good at anything and doesn't function well and is a bit to comical imo (jockey).
Furthermore, each special needs to be able to be believed in bulk. What I mean is you look at a boomer, you say to yourself "yeah, we're in america, I believe these fat fucks can exist in bulk". But you look at pic related and are supposed to believe that every single pic related you encountered experienced the same, ultra specific circumstances to exist in the state they do. Which is silly. It also helps if whatever form the specials take, are taken with a "biological" connotation, not artificial; See pic related. Thoughts?

Haggard would be great if the javelins slowed your character until you removed the shrapnel. Removing shrapnel would give you back half of the damage the jav did but would require an animation as long as the first aid kit. That would make it work great in conjunction with crescendos and tanks despite probably being really frustrating

Left 4 Dead 1 had a better atmosphere than 2.

And that was the biggest reason I preferred it.

>>257655328
I've got a better idea, how about a mutated tier system where tier 1 is the infected we have now aside from a few, tier 2 is infected like the charger, boomer and a few posted here and tier 3 would all be boss infected like the Tank, Witch and Meatwall. All these infected would spawn randomly but the higher tiers would be less common and the tier 3s would only spawn once or twice every level.

He's too quick and is awkward to counter, it's completely possible, but having to right click before he even jumps and "shield yourself" after your swing animation is over leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. His primary attack is available way to quick post successful shove it's silly. As specials what he can do is random seeing as how a survivor maintains 25% control of the survivor hinders most plans that try to go into action with awful shit tier damage at that. In addition to them being to small, their first person camera implies they're the same height as everyone else which is a minor nit pick but still, it feeds into the idea that the jockey is a sloppily designed infected, that has no main damage dealing role (tank, witch, hunter), and has no moving power (smoker, charger) because of it's vague role being to difficult to define on the fly because of random variables further hindering the efforts of the poorly balanced infected team. (He also is too silly and shifts the tone to far out but whatever, that can be fixed with a redesign.)

I think the Jockey is a good setup, because he can move people where he wants, if you cooperate the Jockey is always the one to set off the chain of events to pin 3+ people.

Better atmosphere sure, but left 4 dead 2 had more personality in their levels, felt more populated and were straight up more unique, and better designed.
>>
>>257655650
They're divided into 3 groups:
Ones that scatters the group and pins one down to deal major damage: Charger and Hunter
One that pulls individuals from the group: Smoker and Jockey
One that punishes being grouped up and changes positioning: Spitter and Boomer. They're also the only ones with female models

If they make new specials in 3, then they'll follow the same pattern probably

if you asked me right now which game to play, I would in all honesty choose the first game.
L4D2 just doesn't feel the same. It lacks that gritty, oppressive no hope is left that L4D2 had.
It might have been superior gameplay wise, but I'd rather play the slightly worse game (which is still really great) if it means having a better experience.

It is a bit ridiculous. I mean, witches are terrifying once they get going. I don't see the male equivalent abusing it without losing an arm or a face. Just make them the same.

Honestly I'd prefer something creepily cute. Like if the male witch gets startled you can run over and guide him to the female witch. Then when they run into each other they both sit back down or slowly walk off with each other, no longer crying. A one time easter egg on a map maybe? To give me some feels to go along with the horror.

Zoey is waifu of the year, and the first cast feel "cooler". But the 2nd cast feel more human, they actually grow, feel like a family and change. See nick from dead center on.

This is cool and all, but it leads to a lot of bad things in terms of design.

With those people on his hands we can assume it's like 25 feet tall. It would have to spawn only in certain areas, making maps predictable and less interesting. Also the idea of an enemy in the game that is designed specifically to eat bullets isn't smart. It's basically a gate that tells the player "Insert X amount of bullets to proceed"

I'd really like to see something scary like that, but don't know how to make it work

I tend to agree.

I remember that before the jocky came out I had an idea for a zombie stripper infected.

Very agile, dodge moves, but her main ability is to jump on the backs of survivors. Possible hang on ceilings. High melee damage or at least fast. Good jump height but nothing like the hunter.

While alive she can move survivors aim and movement with the player having some control.

You try to make them shoot teammates or wander off somewhere.

The trick was if she was "killed" she would instantly go into rigamortis. She could no longer influence the survivor but they would be slowed as would their aiming/turning.

To get her off other survivors could shoot her off (dangerous because they still take friendly fire), wait until she lets go, or do an animation.

First cast felt like a "classic" pairing, and they're definitely way cooler. They feel like movie characters- which, they fully intended L4D to feel like a movie. So it works.

L4D2, though, they feel like characters you're supposed to get attached to. And you can- except Rochelle. Also, that doesn't work very well when it still has that "movie" feeling added to it.

Because death pits are part of the game. You're not supposed to defib them if they get knocked in to one. However if the player is suddenly launched outside of the map bounds in a map that was designed to not have death pits in it then that would make the defib a complete waste of an item.

I fucking hate the defib and dont think it should have been added at all though.

if you are a special infected and right click an allied Jockey while they are riding a Survivor, there is a random chance that you can accidentally one hit kill the Jockey, thus freeing the Survivor.

While the devs tried to fix the problem (after years of the community complaining about it on the forum) was accidentally create a glitch that occasionally made tank punches deal double damage when hitting Survivors that have a Jockey on them.

They already experimented with maps that change layouts between playthroughs, maybe multiple paths could be opened up but a meatwall could then spawn in the game to block one of them.

What about a defensive/ healer Special? Either a special that can heal the other infected, or maybe one with abnormal growths or some shit and an incredibly high defence but abysmal offense whose main goal is to soak up damage so the other special infected can maneuver around better?

Doesn't really matter though, All valve games end up with the absolute shittiest playerbases in vidya and L4D is the worst of the worst. It really makes no fucking sense to me, L4D takes next to no skill yet the playerbase is split between
1. retards that suck asshole
2. elitist fuckheads that instantly kick you the second you join.
While games that require skill (or at least dedication) like monster hunter have amazing playerbases.

Top kek, kid. Half the time the only reason why they complete the map and are able to progress to the next one is because while they were busy being incompetent and looking for weapons around the map I waited at the end of the map, and because of that we won.

He's complaining about getting kicked by people who are playing together, when he is blatantly being a lone wolf.

I think that a special infected like that wouldnt make sense when you compare it to the other specials. The only special infected that doesnt die from a few shotgun blasts is the tank. Whats the point of having a special that heals other specials when most of the time they die in the first 4 seconds of an engagement? I think most of the time a healer infected would just be useless unless it had more versatility.

I think one of the reasons why we havent seen another left for dead game is there is really no more room for new special infected. They already have all the types of infected that make logical sense for this type of team based game. All the roles are already filled, really.

Valve cant really bring anything new to the table for left for dead. Its not because they dont know what to do with it, its most likely because they cant come up with enough content that is new and interesting to warrant a new game. Its a good thing and a bad thing.

I think our problem is when we experience a really good video game we tend to play it over and over until it isnt nearly as entertaining as when we first started playing it. Thats why we get excited for a sequel. It means we get to feel that feeling we originally got from when we first started playing the game. Its sad, but I dont think l4d has any more room for new and interesting stuff. Its all been done at this point.

I think that at this point a new half life game is more likely than a new game in the left for dead franchise.
>>

If it was a coordinated effort I wouldn't have to rush ahead of them, we'd rush together. I don't see how rushing isn't a valid strategy in a game that's about getting from one point to the next.

My only beef with the jockey is that it's nearly impossible to punch him mid-air, he grabs you at what seems almost out of your shove range. Even after 800 hours of play time, he's the only special infected I still have trouble with at times. At certain ranges you simply can't deal enough damage before he pounces you or get close enough to shove him. He's really easy to get off people but one on one can be frustrating sometimes. It's not really a problem I have every time one spawns but at specific ranges/parts of levels he becomes a nightmare 1 on 1.

Also another problem I have is you can literally shoot right through survivor's heads to kill the jockey and do no damage to them, I was under the impression when he was revealed that the whole point was that you had to hit him and not damage the survivor.

No, the jockey essentially does the same thing with hit and run tactics. I would much rather like to see another special infected that shoots jagged projectiles at the cost of sacrificing their own limited health. Their jagged projectiles can deal minor damage and slow on impact, but they will be completely direct and non-persistent like spitter goo.

Another idea could be a support role of special infected that could roar/spit on friendly zombie mobs to give them extra damage/damage resistance to work in conjunction with boomers/random mobs.

Well they'll get shredded easily be good players who are aware of their surroundings, and be lucky to get a hit in unless there's a horde

Okay how does this work from a gameplay perspective? You get rushed by 15 zombies and get tackled to the ground Dead Island style except the zombies bite you on the ground and you're basically helpless unless your teammates shoot them off?

Well that's a great way to crash/lag the server or lead to you being able to climb piles of bodies out of bounds

>Head shots or multiple body shots stopped a zombie
That's how it already is

>Shoot limbs to make them ineffective
You can blow off their arms and legs. The reason they die when you shoot off their legs is because you could easily just walk away while it can't get to you and that's one less zombie the server can spawn.

Special infected that squeezes oil from his greasy, pimply face onto you. Does no damage, but makes you feel really, really gross.

this is objectively correct. The mic muting during the storm was some of the most immersive stuff I've ever experienced. More an arcade multiplayer zombie shooter no less.
>>
>>257656990
It's easy to find someone who a hunter pinned and kill the hunter, because he's stationary.
It's easy to headshot a smoker who snagged a teammate with a hunting rifle, because he's stationary.
The jockey is NOT stationary, and is the best infected for pulling survivors the furthest away from eachother. Say some teammate is lagging slightly behind because he went to go pick up a gun or something. Jockey grabs him, and pulls him further away from you guys. Either someone has to go chase him down, or your teammate dies. So at least one guy goes, and every second spent chasing him is another second the jockey spent dragging him away, making the chase a little more arduous. Now the group is separated. See, it puts a logistical strain on things. Also it's fucking easy to fall for those bastards.

l4d2 was just like a really arcade mod/expansion of l4d1 and completely killed the dark theme / universe it was set in

l4d1 was based on a comic book type feel what was l4d2 based off of?

How to fix realism mode:

1. Health packs now act like pills
2. Pills and adrenaline now only provide a long movement speed repair and short movement speed buff respectively
3. Ammo still in magazines is lost when reloading
4. Picking up a new gun does not give you a full inventory of its ammo, just what's in the magazine, until you find a stockpile
5. Musical ques are removed
6. Camera does not switch to third person when you are shoved or attacked by a special zombie

>Now melee against multiple zombies is useless
ftfy

>Well they'll get shredded easily be good players who are aware of their surroundings, and be lucky to get a hit in unless there's a horde
my first comment covered that, talking about countless hordes aswell as only headshots/multiple body shots to kill a zombie, also there's only a limited amount of ammunition in a clip so it's not like you can hold them off forever

>Okay how does this work from a gameplay perspective?
just like hunters and other special infected work, by incapacitating you. you'd need to be saved by your teammates

>Well that's a great way to crash/lag the server or lead to you being able to climb piles of bodies out of bounds
i don't know enough about game design to comment on this, but it's not an essential design mechanic

>That's how it already is
you can shoot their limbs and kill them

>You can blow off their arms and legs. The reason they die when you shoot off their legs is because you could easily just walk away while it can't get to you and that's one less zombie the server can spawn.
how about give them a bleed out timer, they can crawl up to you and grab onto your leg etc for 30 seconds or something

>>Countless hordes the entire time
an exaggeration, but you could add more zombies to make the game more action packed

Looking at this thing, the only two weaknesses i see are small entrances (lel) and it's legs/knees/feet (shoot the legs, it falls and dies). So what if it could only spawn in a certain number of spaces (certain streets, big indoor areas), and only spawned if there was a Horde present. So even though you know it'd never spawn in a hallway, you'd be spooked because you know it might or might not show up once you reach the outside of the building or the big lobby of the airport, unlike the tank which is most always expected. The horde mechanic is for two reasons: 1, to have a bunch of zombies in front of it's legs, to protect it and help it get nearer. And 2, it's so big it can throw zombies at you if you try and escape. So to dispose of it, you'd have to kill most of the zombies in front of it to expose it's weakspot, have a player try to flank for a instant-fall back of the knee shot, or duck into the nearest doorway, where it would come by and you'd have an easy chance to kill it. I'm having trouble coming up with a fair damage mechanic though

L4D1 wasn't "dark themed" it was literally just a cliche zombie movie spoof.

L4D2, in turn, was a spoof on pseudo comedy action filled monster movies.

L4D is a really delicate balancing act and has one of the shittiest communities in any game.

They really can't add more infected without absolutely fucking up the balance of the game.

I'd really just suggest togglable options for certain infected in the default game with each game having it's "token" infected

>L4D- Hunter, Boomer, Smoker
>L4D2- Spitter, Charger, Jockey
>L4D3- Whatever fuck they want, really

And then theme the tank/witch to the level/game.

Also, fuck those faggots in game and in this thread who rush from safe house to safe house. Yes, it works, but you're essentially the rushing faggots that ruin RTS games.

Fuck you.

What about a special infected that's tall and thin, almost like stick figure.

It has large claws and moves really fast, and does double the damage and health of a normal zombie or something. Basically a melee attacker

So it could run in while a horde is forming, and sort've disguise itself amidst the chaos.

Or it could try to target a survivor by itself. Idk.

I understand your other points, but not that one.
Enemies in L4D are extremely predictable too unless they're player controlled ( Versus).
Design-wise, yeah most are not that special except for the FleshPound. Which I think is the best one of the bunch of both games.

Kinda obtuse, but fair enough.
The big problem here is that Gaben and his lackeys went to insane lengths to make L4D2 balanced to the point where adding cosmetics would probably ruin the balance with distractions. Even if Valve does manage to pull a few novel new SIs out of their ass for the third game, it still won't be enough to warrant a new release.

Also there's a zombie limit on the map. Not killing zombies makes there spawn less zombies ahead of you

>Custom weapons and shit added
>Different guns, etc. added and unlockable in survivor cache drops

nobody else thinks this?

They wouldn't just drop the entire concept and turn it into a clone of another game they're making. Some stuff might be similar like custom weapons and drops and stuff but the general concept that makes L4D L4D will be the same.

>if you shot it's feet it would fall and die

well realistically you'd only need one bullet in a tank's brain to kill it. i don't see how this one would be different

I have an idea for an Infection mode
>Like 8-ish survivors and only one special infected, and 10 or so basic zombies max
>The zombies kill a survivor
>The survivor becomes a special infected and the basic zombie cap increases
It's probably shit, but I think it might be cool IMO
Maybe only make it 4 survivors like in the normal modes, or maybe give the first SI some buffs

why do you think osu! affects fps gameplay? must be the retardism that is running rampant in america these days

>if the game was better it would be more popular
excellent deduction, Holmes.

>>257679786
no trust me, they're completely bumfuck retarded. when i'm kicked for this i always have about 10x the special infected kills of all of them combined, and i clear them within 2 seconds every time they are pinned

i often find myself trying to actually kill the special infected, but keep forgetting the rest of my team won't do that and will instead rush ahead because they're so unaware they don't even know the special infected spawned yet.

or just have semi-random but learnable places with still alive NPC survivors. You need to choose wich ones to save before they get turned into special infected.

>>257682158
in fact i remember one situation on c1m2, right after you reach the first building, just before the ladder, i was at the truck before that ladder. there was a smoker and a jockey in the bushes (obviously waiting for me) and i only had a shotgun. if i had a sniper rifle i would have just killed them, but because of my weapons i knew i would be pinned if i moved forward. i somehow completely forgot that 99% of people are retarded (so probably didn't even know there was a smoker or jockey there) so when i decided not to move from the truck expecting them to actually come closer to offer support, i was just kicked (and my bot was probably immediately capped when he started running forward, hurr durr)
