Figure these battle reports might help make the forums a bit more interesting.
So I did manage to get in a few L4D games today...
In the first one, I joined a Versus that was partly underway. I joined the bad team. And were they ever bad.lol. Just check out the difference between my score and everyone else's...
Anyway, I stayed in the game until the finale, where it was obvious we were going to lose. Everyone else left, so I didn't see much point in sticking around.
Game 2 was just a campaign mode I joined partway through. It was the No Mercy campaign on normal. We all finished that one with no problem.
Third game was another campaign mode on Dead Air with 2 of the same people from the last game, plus a friend of theirs. This one was on advanced. I almost knew that we would be in trouble when during the first safe house area, I ended up taking 20 damage in friendly fire before making it out of the greenhouse area. lol. The rest of the game....well.... in the first stage, the alarm got set off, causing bill to get incapped and almost killed.
Second stage, Zoey got incapped by a tank, but no major problems otherwise.
Third stage went fairly well, except for my failed attempt to crown the witch.
Fourth stage saw bill get hit by a pipe bomb, francis caught on fire, Zoey and bill both killed by a tank while francis barely hung on to life, and ended with all 3 of them in the red, trying to outrun an incoming horde and get into the safe room, where they all healed while I held off the mob of zombies. B)
Now for the finale....
This immediately got off to a bad start. Bill lagged while still on the starting platform, causing him to get boomed, pulled, and pounced all at once. I managed to kill all 3 of the special infected and he managed to avoid getting hurt too bad. They all decided they wanted to fight from the hill, which went less than perfect during the first wave of zombies. The first tank, however, managed to set itself on fire for a pretty easy kill. So we round ourselves back to the hill for the second wave of zombies, but Zoey doesn't fare too well.
She ends up taking friendly fire, getting pounced and smoked, and eventually getting incapped. While protecting bill, who was getting her back up, I took a shotgun blast to the face from francis and went down myself. Bill rushes to me and pulls me back up right before the 2nd tank shows up. So, since I had no medkit at this point, I traded my shotgun in for an assault rifle, deciding that I'd rather fight from far away. First thing the tank does is knock an object into both zoey and francis with one shot, instantly incapping both of them. The tank then turns and chases bill, while I pick both of them up. Bill goes down though, and the tank kills him. :( We manage to kill the tank, after it incaps zoey again, and the plane starts to open it's door. I pick zoey up and we rush for the plane. I make it on first, only to get incapped inside of the plane by friendly fire from zoey, who was shooting a zombie. Immediately after going down inside the plane, it takes off, ending the game.
I died...so close to freedom...
Anyway, maybe this battle report thing will start a trend, maybe not. But I think I'm gonna do it from now on, when I can.
