  1. Okay, so I don’t normally get involved with nonsense like this, but I felt like this could have been handled a lot better. (I wasn’t sure where to post this; whether in L4D2 general, or the ban appeal; so apologies in advance. Please move the thread if need be!) We were playing the subway map of no mercy tonight, and my team had just finished their survivor round and made it to the saferoom with relative ease. Player Sigma Grey Wolf is on the other team, and about to take their turn, when he decides to voice his frustration/opinion and says “this server blows”. Almost immediately following, Mercman permanently bans the guy (as seen here). There was no warning for having a negative opinion. There was no “hey, you know you can play elsewhere if you don’t like the server” remark from anyone. Not even a simple kick. Just an instant perma ban. I’m sorry, but what? This was a total overreaction to the situation. And I know I’m not the only one who thinks this. What happened to warning players? Or simply kicking them? I’ve seen both members and non-members get away with a lot worse without so much as a blink in their direction from admins. But if someone comes onto the server and has one small, negative remark about the server, it’s justified to perma ban them? That's some backwards logic if you ask me. I have nothing against any of the admin, Mercman included (and I don't want to cause drama/problems/etc with anyone). What I have an issue with is unfair/unjust banning of a player over something so miniscule. So I guess this is my attempt to get Sigma's ban lifted?
  2. That sucks. I've not had mine drop connection or receive interference, not with the old mouse or the current one (even when I traveled with it and it was in much higher traffic areas for interference). So that's a plus. I'd never go wireless for a keyboard, that just sounds like too much of a hassle lol. But I did some further research on reviews and unfortunately the mouse wheel and left button going dead after a few months seems to be a common thing. Which is a shame, since it's such a nice little mouse up until the point those things happen :c I think I'm going to pass on the mouse offer though, as much as I appreciate it ♥ This is my second try with Logitech mice and I'm kind of disappointed and put off with them lol
  3. Ugh. So does anyone else here happen to use a Logitech M325 wireless mouse? Or have used one in the past? I got one when I first got my laptop about 5 years ago. And I finally had to replace it last year (aka September) because the left click stopped functioning (it was dropped and therefore damaged; but it was dodgy as hell long before then and would randomly decide it just wasn't going to register left clicking). As mentioned, the one I have now is about 4 months old, and I'm beginning to experience the same left click problems. It's driving me crazy. I've tried just about everything to fix it (both in the past and presently). From removing the battery overnight/turning it off to let any static energy discharge (with and without removing the dongle/docking usb for it). To putting a fresh battery in. Even cleaning it. I know it's not software/hardware related as other mice work fine. Only thing I haven't done is take the darn thing apart (because I don't know how to do that and wouldn't ever get it back together lol). I guess I'm just having bad luck with this model/brand. (And no, I will not go wired. Because of limited space in my room, I'm forced to play on a pretty small desk and the cord from a wired mouse will just be in the way) That said, does anyone have any recommendations for a decent USB wireless mouse? It has to be something that's going to stand up to the abuse of gaming/photoshop use and the repeated left clicking it results in. And not... you know.... die in like 5 months because of it lol. I'm on a bit of a budget, so preferably something that isn't going to cost $50 or more aha. I ended up picking this mouse because it had great reviews from multiple sources, but it's just not working out for me :c

    1. When and how did you find out about GC? And which game did/do you play on? How long have you been gaming on GC overall? Like a lot of people, I ended up finding GC through the server browser option in L4D2. Been playing here for three years now as of July 2014. 2. Share about your very first day on GC or just your first month or so, how did it go? Whether good or bad, let’s hear it from you, Well, I had played L4D2 for several years prior to switching to PC. But had never touched versus in all that time. It just didn’t appeal to me. As mentioned above, I found GC entirely by accident via the server browser. Like most newbies I had no clue what I was doing, or that the buy menu existed, etc. It was a little rough overall, but eventually I started picking up on commands people kept typing and tried it myself. Tada! Buy menu discovered! Boy, did that make my life a lot easier! Playing the infected was still pretty rough. I wasn’t very helpful to my team, and didn’t do a lot of good. But hey, first time infected player, so could have been worse I suppose lol. But overall, the community was pretty friendly and helpful. Within about a week of playing I had the essential stuff from the buy menu down. And Meng helped me work out key binds. I had become so addicted to playing on GC (as a non member) that someone anonymously bought me a membership a couple months in 3. Tell me about friends you have made while playing our servers and what roles did they have into making you have fun gaming in general. Oh man, where do I even start with this? I’ve made a lot of great friends here over the years, some of which sadly no longer play or who vanished without a trace. But I find myself playing when those friends are on, versus when they’re not. The vast majority of them are better players than myself (in my opinion, at least lol). And I always find it a fun challenge to try to target them or pick on them. Then of course there are the select few who are always the target of my rocket jockeys just because I know it annoys them 4. What keeps you coming back to play GC? My friends. While I do enjoy playing on the server, and most of the community is actually very friendly, there are a select few who make things toxic sometimes, or who know how to ruin a game for their teammates. So generally I just stick to playing with friends when they’re around so I’m less likely to become frustrated or rage lol ._. 5. How has GC affected you as a person, whether big or small, share about it. Believe it or not, I’m actually a very shy person, especially in real life; painfully so, in fact. Social interactions with me tend to be super awkward and are usually a source of stress. But I’ve found that I’ve come out of my shell a bit since I’ve started playing on GC, especially when it comes to talking to others. Using my mic isn’t something I would have thought I’d be doing when I first started playing, but now I’m probably one of those annoying people that turns into a chatterbox at the most obnoxious moments and that my teammates would like to tell to shut up >o> 6. What are some fond memories that you can recall on while playing games on GC servers? Any funny ones? Any sad ones? Aside from the hilarious late night 2v2 Dark Carnival round that lead to me becoming pretty close friends with Clony, I think one of the funniest memories to date has to be me accidentally killing someone with a spitter on Hard Rain map 4. They were coming out of the saferoom and standing on the railing that my spitter was crouched on. And I just so happened to time my spit perfectly when they jumped over, and it launched them into the air. Instant death on impact with the ground! I giggled so hard afterwards that I was in tears, and everyone else was so confused about what happened. 7. What song reminds you of GC? I have absolutely no idea. I don’t listen to music when I play L4D either. I have hearing problems as is, and rely too much on hearing SI so I can avoid and/or shoot them 8. What is a goal you want to accomplish next year? And for those who play L4D2, what is something you want to work on getting better at in the game? My current goal for next year is to have myself a new gaming laptop (or desktop; either at this rate), since my current laptop is showing signs of age and struggles with games (L4D2 was on max settings for example, but now I’m forced to play with everything on low). Long story short, I’m unable to work a normal job due to multiple health problems, and therefore money is a hard-to-come-by thing for me. I’ve managed to raise half the money I need so far (in 6 months, since April of this year), but still have the other half to go. As far as something I want to better myself at in L4D2, it’s definitely my tank-playing skills. I’m such a bad tank rofl. Even though I have my moments and surprise myself, most of the time I get melted and only live for a few seconds :c

    Feedback on Hazmat Hordes

    Hazmat hordes suck when you're the only person boomed lol. Happened to me the first night this was implemented. Got boomed and was surrounded by them; couldn't even move! Ran out of ammo during the fight and was trying to reload after buying more, all the while shove spamming to try to keep them off. And my teammates seemed to be non-existent in helping to shoot them haha. I went from about 90 health to 30 after that nonsense :'c I think they're super effective in the right situations. Such as on a survivor who is separated and boomed on, or someone who has just bought a respawn for example. And I don't want to even imagine them during a tank fight and the team is scattered around. A horde of riot zombies though? Ugh. Why would you even? lol

    I'm still here I swear

    Thanks Looney! I would honestly be fine with either setup, desktop or pc. And I know that in the long run, a desktop is probably the better choice as far as power/performance goes, as well as maintaining. But I like the mobility of being able to take my laptop anywhere in the house to game, watch videos, etc. Also helps to be able to take it to "work" with me so I can work on art/writing in my free time. So I'm not limited to being set up in my room only haha. I haven't done any searching for desktop setups, but pretty sure I could probably find something close to, if not better, than the laptop for a similar price. But I can always change my mind later, since my decision on a laptop isn't set in stone

    I'm still here I swear

    Apologies for not being around too much to play as of late. I've not had the best of luck with technology lately. I've been experiencing some issues with my laptop. It's about 5 years old, and has finally started showing signs of age and general wear and tear. I'm a heavy user of Adobe Photoshop, and trying to do anything art related is a pain - the program is not only slow and laggy, but cannot handle large file sizes anymore. And for games, ugh. I'll be lucky if I can play for an hour before my laptop is like "nah, I'm done with this" and threatening to crash. So I haven't really been on steam because of it, much less launched a game. On top of that, our modem decided it'd be cute to drop connection approximately every two hours and made even the simplest of tasks beyond annoying to try to complete, never mind trying to game. But little did my family know that the modem wasn't the problem. Our router decided to die about two weeks ago. That was an $85 replacement that we couldn't really afford to spare, but went ahead and made because let's face it: we needed our internet connection. I'd like to be able to return to playing with you guys :c But that doesn't look like it will be the case any time soon. My family is in a bit of a tight spot financially, pretty much living paycheck to paycheck, and having spare cash is rare. But I did decide, after talking to a few friends and receiving encouragement to at least try, to start a GoFundMe to try to raise money for a new laptop. For those who don't know, gofundme is a donation site that allows you to make donations for a certain cause. I'm absolutely not expecting donations, just sharing this here in addition to my little update post. You can read more details/the story on the link. If you'd like to donate, even if it's just $1, that's great! And is appreciated more than you'll ever know. But even if you cannot, or do not want to, donate, I appreciate those of you who at least took the time to look and read ♥ -- https://www.gofundme.com/funding-a-new-computer
