Yet another Encore Mutation.

L4D: April 22nd Mutation Update

Versus Survival
Can you survive against your friends?

The first Survivor team sets the time. The second team tries to beat it. Then the first team tries to beat the second team’s time. Then the second team tries to beat the first team’s time. And then the… you get the idea. Rounds keep switching until someone fails to beat the previous time.

This is a great way to try Versus. Rounds are only as long as you can keep beating each other’s times. There are no rushing Survivors. Infected spawns get quicker as the time increases. It is mayhem filled with all the weapon perks and items. What’s not to like? Give it a try.

Versus Survival is pretty enjoyable, so give it a try. If you’ve played it before, you know just how much fun it can be.

Next up is the poll results for the poll from two weeks back:

When to Tier?
The last poll asked when to place tier 2 weapons?

The winner was to place Tier 2 weapons unpredictably in Map 2 followed by unpredictably placed in Map 1. After those two the rest are all distant runners muddled together.

So this makes it clear you want unpredictable tier 2 weapons when they are first available. We will try them on map 2 first and go from there. Remember, polls aren’t the final word. You never really know how something is going to work until you test it. We use this as a place to start testing and then react from further testing.

Great! Let’s hope it works out and we get some decent weapons for map 2.

And this week’s poll:

Portal 2?
With Portal 2’s release this week we were wondering, do you plan on playing the Co-op section of Portal 2?

Who WON’T be playing the Coop? That’s what I’m wondering. Incredible amounts of fun to be had.

That’s all for this week. Thanks for reading!
