Today Valve released the second update for the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2. This patch, downloaded automatically when you start Steam, corrects matchmaking issues and a few other bugs.
If only it were true... This update hasn't helped one bit, I tried joining 3 games, my whole team had 400+ ping in one server (read unplayable), the next it inexplicably crashed, and the last plopped us in yet another doozy, this time with 500+ ping each (read super unplayable). I'd wager this update was nothing more than a placebo update, put in effect to calm down all the pissed off PC gamers like myself. I see through your bull**** Valve, quit toying with my emotions goddammit.
If problems persist, throw your copy of L4D2 at Valve.
Tip that I learned: Open console, type openserverbrowser Pick whatever server you like! Brilliant. After all, a human can make decisions about what server to join better than any machine can. This one tip seriously changed the game for me.
