[a id]intro[/a id]Speak up Francis, your voice got all muffled from being so far up your ass!All the information you'll need about the upcoming The Passing gaming event.[css-span="color: #d4d4d4;"]

We'll be playing through the new campaign, The Passing, in Left 4 Dead 2 since it is soon to be released sometime this week. We'll be playing on both Xbox 360 and PC, so pick your preferred platform and hop on during the scheduled times for some campaign time, along with some exploration of the brand new game modes!

Obviously the title of the event is not factual, as nobody knows who the actual dead Survivor will be, but I'm guessing it's Bill, hence why this event is named such. :)

Anyone is welcome to join, naturally, but for those signing up for the PC event, join this Steam group (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/pokecommunity). There's an event scheduler on there and it's an easier way to contact anyone who is playing.[/css-span]

Hey I'll play! I'm always down for a good game of L4D2 with you guys. For PC as usual of course.

I don't know anything about the DLC, but I'll play for 360 when/if it does happen.

I'll sign up for the 360 event. L4D gaming events are usually always fun, especially that one time when we were all jumping inside that one house in Swamp Fever after playing the jukebox... too bad no one recorded it.

Hey, was this update on time for once? Gabe Newell, what happened? I'll be sure to try and join the PC one. Gotta love Valve and their free content.

There's been a change in the time for the 360 event. Instead of 9PM PST, it'll be 8PM PST / 11PM EST. Be sure to add the gamertag "Plufael"! (And don't make fun of it ;.;)

Anyway, I'm in for the 360 event if my connection doesn't crap out tonight.

Despite the 2-3 times in a row losses at the finale of "The Passing", it was fun spamming pills everywhere. I would have stayed on longer last night but I had to go somewhere.

Since the events went over kind of badly for both systems, we're gunna try this again THIS weekend possibly. I'll update the first post with details when and if it happens.

Munch Dog
April 26th, 2010, 01:53 PM
Well if so I will definitely be there! No more insulating houses for me!

I just hope that there wont be any connection problems when we will redo the event. On the 360 it took a while to actually get a game going and by the time it was done everything seemed scrambled. Hopefully it will be better this time.

And I've finally got a 3Mbps connection, and games with more than three players are totally playable and lag-free. So that should cause less trouble setting up games and not having to split into groups.

Well I was going to suggest that I host games for the 360 since people never have problems connecting to my games but well I guess that works too.

You know that this will require "The Passing" DLC which costs 560 MSP right? If you already have it downloaded then I guess your set but if you dont then you will not be able to play the passing with everyone else.

Is this on for tonight? I'm apparently supposed to be hosting it if it is, according to David. But Klippy's been dead all night. oo;

For any PC players, we are in-game now, waiting for any lagging joinees to play. So hop on the game and we'll invite you.

Does anyone on the 360 version actually want to do it tonight? I mean, I can run it, but there's no point if I get no turnout. x.x

I suppose I can. I need something to keep me awake so I can wait up for my fiance

Morkula

I was thinking we could do it tomorrow night anyway - that way we can get more people if they see this thread during the day tomorrow. It'd be nice to have a good turnout. Plus I know David and I neither one really feel like playing tonight.

Heh, tonight was my first time to play both vs. and Scavenge in L4D2. I don't really like Vs. anymore than I did from the first L4D, but Scavenge was pretty damn fun. Except for the second game where dumbass coach bot decided to take his sweet ass time saving me from the charger when he was standing literally right next to it.

We had an amazing turnout on the PC. I think overall we had around 10 people flowing in and out of the games.

We started off with some Versus on The Passing and absolutely killed it. Pretty intense matches, haha. I can't remember the teams we had, but Avatar will be posting a video of The Passing Versus match and some other tidbits. Then we followed it up with The Parish and I made a daring escape onto the helicopter barely. I had been smoked when suddenly a wonderful Tank came and slapped me clear across the map right in front of the helicopter. :)

Then we played Scavenge on a few maps and that was fun too. Can't remember the scores or the teams, but there were a few tight clutch matches towards the end, haha.

So thanks to Avatar, Hiroshi Sotomura, Munch Dog, Jeremy, Theodore Bruno, Zanacross, Hiroshi Sotomura's brother, and wakachamo! I had a blast playing with everyone and hopefully we can all get another event going soon.

Works for me! Is it going to be the same time as the last event?
