I said SOME night, not tonight. I'd like to get three other AKers who can reserve a night to help. I've tried it with my son Joe and gotten very close (last level) but we people we were playing with had to bail out and you just can't complete it with bots.

Any other takers?

Depending on the night, let me know - would like to give it a try.

Dedicate over 1.5 hrs for a map. I've been playing with a group of guys and we've yet to beat any map on expert. We did No Mercy Finale for like 50 minutes before giving up.

My son, his two friends and I completed Dead Air on expert but I joined late and only did the last map. Only one of the four of us was there for the whole thing and got the achievement. It can be done.

I think Dead Air is the map to try. We used the "closet" method and survived quite nicely. Only took us 3-4 attempts to get it done.

How about Thursday night?

For me personally, Friday and the weekend is better - at least this week.

My daughters confirmation is this weekend so this weekend might be tough. Maybe Sunday night though.

Kidd and I are probably not on the 'expert' level yet, but we'd be willing to give it a shot. Any night but Thursday is good for us.

Expert difficulty is very unforgiving. A couple chomps from a regular zombie will have you down on the ground. One swat from a tank will disable you and another will kill you outright.

It's really all about team work. A good team can work together and get it done. You can't complete this even if just one of the survivors is a bot. It's that tough.

It definitely requires teamwork. And for god's sake, stay away from the witch.

Well fine, we'll just take our ball and go home! :crazy:

Naw, it's ok, we aren't as practiced as you guys, so you would probably just yell at us a lot, and that makes Kidd cry. We'll keep playing and maybe one day, we can play with the big kids. ;)

I'll practice with you guys sometime. Vista 64 doesn't like my Strategic Commander keyboard-replacement controller, which I've used exclusively in shooters since around 2000 or so. Thus, I'm back to rookie status with shooters, trying to relearn to use the keyboard again.

if you guys have a rookie group going maybe I should buy this one for Clay. It might keep him occupied in the basement while I finish up house and work stuff.

I'm no expert but me and Trelessia are always game for some zombie action !

Beaker, maybe you should get it for Clay and we can have a "scrubs" L4D night !

Have fun on expert mode after the newest update:

# Introduced fatigue to the melee attack in versus mode. You will see a HUD display when your melee swing is cooling down
# Boomer vomit will now pass through common infected

Should not really affect expert since #1 is for versus only and #2 ... well, I always seem to get vomited on no matter what. :)

Oh yeah. Somehow I missed the words "in versus mode".
