    Still no 4v4 player matching :(
    It's only 8 months after release though. We must be patient :p

    Great to see better custom content support though.

    Come on, this is Valve we're talking about, we all know better than that! There will have to be three more patches before it becomes even remotely usable.

    Cool, 8 months after the game came out... I still think that it's a beta version, the real server browsing will be in L4D2 :D

    Or in L4D Underground or L4d Modern Warfare 3...

    No, this is seperate, I still have server browser enabled for searching my history (-serverbrowser launch option) and this has a somewhat... Minimised interface.

    Would have been better if they did stick with the original server browser in my opinion, this new one only shows games from your 'region' as it sees it - and I have a habit of playing at odd hours. As it is the regular server browser can only easily show your history, not find new games.

    Yeah I'm still going to use the original server browser accessed through the console (openserverbrowser). Too many games with crappy pings if you just jump into a game without checking latency first. It's a step in the right direction but it's still too consoleish for me.

    You kidding Valve are one of the only decent developer left out there..You don't pay for this service so what do you expect?
    The initial cost of the game is for the development, the game is still usable, infact never had a problem with it. Except for crap third party servers..
