    as i knowed there was at cold stream (first version) a button to pass the tank. u had 30 sec to press the button and pass the tank to the one u want by picking him up from a list of players.
    cant u code something like that?

    I thihk we have all just agreed that it depends on the situation. I believe communication is key. I can only talk about my experiences from VI but what Bonekeep mentioned is correct. It's a tactic called leap frog and is very effective. But Vulcan is also correct that if there is no one left to get then leave him alone. A simple message of "Do you want me to take him? or Can I get a Hunter in the back please?" goes a long way. I say let the team decide. Team votekick works well and if someone is a donor then I'm sure someone will out them here on this forum.

    also you need to take in consideration that sometimes a tank is attacking a survivor. and then a hunter or chargers gets in and tries to killsteal too.
    Tanks need to get the change to kill a survivor too

    Smocker can darg and move , smocking dam , long range , high accuracy and have lots of HP.
    He have a lots of skill than any SI, so kill stealling from other is fair to me.

    Tanks can get more than their fair share of points in the right situation like smacking cars but the tank is very ineffective at attacking downed survivors, slow and sloppy. It is best for the tank to only attack up survivors and let the rest of the crew do the clean up. Fine smack at him when no other SI are around but when a real killer comes let him rape. Sure it is frustrating as a tank standing around with nothing to do but so is getting killed by a tank.

    The Smoker does shit for damage, takes a long time to kill survivor and the tounge is very fragile. The Smoker is very fragile as well. It is harder to get a good Smoker that lasts than anything but the Jockey. It is so easy for a survivor to escape if not by his comerades then by some other SI screwing you. Too many times a boomer or Spitter comes and does not puke or spit but scratches which only kills me and then the survivor shoots them and runs away when they could have been going after fresh meat. Puke, spit and then run on.

    Smoker is actually damned good in PR. The weakest is actually the hunter, who takes about 4-5 minutes to kill an incap with over 600 HP. Kinda a bad idea to KS from a smoker in PR, seeing as how the smoker can easily drag a survivor back to the beginning saferoom pretty damned quickly, even if very far away.

    I don't know anything about this PR stuff. Strictly a VI and Berserker man myself.

    Ok, so, if someone steal someone's kill for purpose, should it be considered minor or major offense?

    Personally, its minor to me and i would do nothing about it as players does it all the time just to have that chance to kill... you dont have to be a hunter to kill steal from a smoker.. you can be any SI and just claw or bash the helpless survivor who got smoked.. and its anyone guess who gets the kill.. and you see plenty of these actions in PR.

    CI steal my kills all the time, is ther no honor amongst zombies?

    I'd rather see a team-mate get the kill than some stupid deadhead common.

    when u are a boomer and bile ur victim and then the CI kill the survivor while he is biled from u, u get the kill.so best is trap a survivor and buy bile shower when he has low hp.

    it care, cuz most ppl play for stats and ranking, and for exp/pts at PR servers.
    its just annoying as smoker when a hunter steal ur victim instead cover u.

    Not gonna lie, Call of Duty has to be the worst game ever made...there is no point to it...

    But anyway, 9, do you play PR, or just VI? Because the only reason people care so much on PR is because the xp. No one really cares about the kill itself, they just care they the point they could have received were taken by someone else.

    EDIT: Ahh, Blood, you beat me to it.

    at both gamemodes, VI and PR ppl play mainly for HL stats, at PR there is also the PR stats a reason. but in my case for example when u almost maxed ur PR stats then u care most for HL stats cuz u must fight every day to stay in ;P

    yeah choco ;D

    I personally don't care much about PR stats or Hlstats because stats come and go. For instance if i'm away from steam for a month then i will lose places but does it really matter? Well i know it matters to most of the people but the reason i play on PR is because i like the upgrades, skills and the buffs feature. As for Hlstats, i never took them seriously because those stats don't represent anything. Generally when someone is at the first place, it usually means that person is or was best among the rest but that's not the case on hlstats or PR stats, they are just there for fun. When l4D3 will come out, who will give a damn about l4d2 stats which people have acquired by playing for 30,40,50 or even 60 days of gameplay time..

    BTW, this is just my opinion on the stats issue and some of you may agree with me and some won't but that's fine because i'm not saying my opinion is right and other peoples opinion is wrong, afterall opinion is an opinion ..

    P.S On the topic of kill stealing, i agree it is annoying and sometimes i do get quite annoyed when i really wanted the kill but then someone else steals my kill but this is a minor offence which is not worthy of a kick or a ban unless someone is excessively stealing other peoples kill them maybe a kick at most i guess.
