Be warned if you're heading into Versus, it's one of the most elitist gamer communities in existence, which is very surprising. 

 

Versus can be a major PITA if your teammates are ######. Being that it's just four people, the ease to ragequit is high.

 

But when the teams are good, it's fun as hell.

Agreed, but too many times I've been votekicked for "only hitting 3 survivors as the boomer" "only clocked 60 hours on the game" "failing to get the jockey off a teammate within 3 seconds".

 

Feels like too many versus players are convinced they are a mortal form of Gabe Newell in L4D2, and with no scoreboards or stats to prove them wrong act like they're the best.

I advise everyone to check the Steam Workshop after getting the game, tonnes of hilarious mods on there that completely change the game.

I don't think you actually have to download or install it, as soon as you click Play it should be added to your account.

Try this link guys..

 

steam://install/550

 

Edit: interesting.. that link worked for me once but now it's not. Well if you copy that link and paste it into your browser (I'm using chrome at the moment) then it should open the steam install dialog.

 

This worked for me however I'm told it might be a trial version of some sort. Although it tells me the acquisition method is Christmas 2013 steam store.

@trag3dy - When I click that link, it tries loading the L4D2 page in Steam but fails with Error Code: -101.
