Follow TV Tropes
If (special) infected spawning in the safe room doesn't qualify as a Kaizo Trap, then does the Church Guy not qualify since it's essentially the same thing? Hell, he doesn't even spawn in 2's port of the campaign.
Did Not Do the Research: Possible. In the comic it's revealed that the gene for resistance is inherited from the father. This troper was lead to believe that fathers cannot pass male-only traits to their daughters. If only fathers can give immunity or the carrier gene, it would be have to be Y-linked. Immunity/carrier gene would have to be X-linked in order for Zoey and Rochelle to have it. I did not want to post this in case some Biology grad came along and proved me wrong.
WTF happened to Useful Notes?!
It's cool, I found it!
The Schmuck Bait entry is a bit off, but I'm not sure how to fix it. Given that that the only path is through the wedding and you have to go uncomfortably close to the witch, playing the song is perhaps a good idea because it gives you a few seconds before the witch starts attacking.
Of course, it's not as good as the Frag round, or attempts to sneak past her when the action quiets down.
More tropes removed...
Aw, I forgot what a trope was :|
Can't you shoot out a zombie's groin, though? :\ I agree with whoever posted that.
Can we have L 4 D 2 redirect to this page? I don't know how to do that...
No, initialism redirects aren't allowed.
I agree that it'd be nice to have and that it shouldn't exist by this Wiki's rules...But there's a few ways to get around it anyways. Stupid, but they work.
If you don't know how to do those two tricks, go read over Text Formatting Rules because it's nice to know :P
Potholing and escape sequences? Yeah, but you should really just type out the entire title for clarity.
I was thinking for on the Useful Notes page, I keep getting red links
Use the escape sequence. [ =L4D2= ] (without spaces) will get you L4D2.
And no, we're not making an initial redirect. L 4 D shouldn't have existed in the first place, and I cutlisted it, as you're supposed to.
Since sometimes people get confused why tropes are removed...
Oy vey. That took much longer than I thought. That's one folder cleaned up. I'll see what I can do about the others later. Sleep...
In the case of Left for Dead, there should be an entry for that since it's a regular occurence during the rush to the Rescue Vehicle
I disagree that it should be in the article regarding regular gameplay, I think it's too much a stretch. Doubly so considering that usually it's a bad idea.
However, I suppose there's enough of an exception with the Room For One mutation gametype being about that very trope XD
Hey, is it possible to make a Useful Notes tab? I thought it might be cool for us to have one for this game, not for strategies or the like (that can go in Troper Tales) but just information. I figure that anyone who watches this page would care to know, for example, that the formula for health gained from First Aid is 0.8(100 - Current Health), or that if you're playing Campaign on the original, setting a tank on fire will make them run faster and will not damage their health (it just gives them a 90-second-killswitch).
That would actually be pretty cool. Despite The Wiki Rule being in effect, the L 4 D Wiki is absolutely huge. Keeping all the maths in one folder here could make the tropers happy.
Sounds like a good idea to me. A collection of useful info that doesn't go into extreme detail would be nice and help keep it off of the main article.
...Except we can't make a Useful Notes tab for a game, apparently. *sigh* Well, we could always use a trivia tab as an mini-infodump, right?
Yeah, but we should put a header in saying that we're not really interested in trivia but Usefel Notes. Have you tried the button on the left of the page that tags a page for moderator-reviewing?
...I had no idea there was such a thing here.
I found out a while back when I tried to make a Self-Imposed Challenge tab for Batman Arkham Asylum
I'd guess whatever tabs appear on Main pages are part of the site's scripting, probably not something we peons can do anything about.
...In any event I changed the Trivia subpage into a makeshift Useful Notes. If we truly want it to be that kind of page, we technically can have it split between actual trivia(such as Louis being fluent in Japanese) and useful notes(shooting your friends is bad). We'll have to be extra-judicious if we want to keep it that way, at least until Useful Notes becomes a possible tab for a Main article :|
Did you call for a moderator? We could always port it over if the Useful Notes tab is granted.
Yeah, I did on the Useful Notes sub-page. It's all new to me though, so I'm hoping you don't expect me to know anything about this stuff you don't already know >.>
I've been thinking about it, and the entry on Germans Love David Hasselhoff was incorrectly tagged as YMMV. It is no less a fact that Left 4 Dead has a fanbase in Japan than it is that The Hospital is an Abandoned Hospital.
So, I'm going to reverse it's deletion from the main-page despite the system-tag-thingy until someone can explain exactly where the variance is
Also, how did Germans Love David Hasselhoff get tagged when Gorn and Het Is Ew didn't?
Germans Love David Hasselhoff doesn't fit because the game is popular in the USA.
Oh, okay... it still shouldn't be marked for moving to YMMV
Article needs some cleaning up. Anybody got time to do it? I've got a few others on my to-do first and don't think I can get to it this week.
What exactly needs to be done?
At least cutting natter, moving YMMV stuff away and general cleaning (Game Mod section lists a billion terrible sound packs etc.)
I'm cleaning it now. It'll be easier if no-one jumps in and edits while I'm getting my bearings between saves. Thanks
How is Germans Love David Hasselhoff YMMV? I think I'll leave that there 'til someone 'xplains that to me...
I'm gonna move soundpacks to YMMV since they're not part of the actual game and I think they're dumb
Now I'll just read the page and see if anything sticks out as wrong/dumb
I read the main article and ran out of steam.
I'm sure if everyone just attacks the natter they come across we'll get it all.
Try not to delete it all if there's a valid point in there that can be saved, though...
Hollywood Silencer: Averted with the silenced submachine gun? Zombies are still attracted to players and the gun makes a moderately loud crack when fired
Yeah, put it in
Bad Boss: The Director in Versus only? I don't think so. I mean, he controls all the items, where the zombies spawn, everything, so even though he loses some control in Versus, it doesn't solely apply there. A lot of times when I play versus, I rarely get any items. So, change?
I dunno; considering the consistently terrible places I get spawned in (especially as a Tank), I'm not prepared to write off the theory. Now, it could just be that bots are better at maneuvering from the places they get spawned, but that's a different trope.
Okay, so I want to know. Does the hunter appear in the Zombie Survival Guide intro/trailer for Left 4 Dead 2? I recall someone saying he appears with the mud people, but then that "hunter" could've just been... the mud people. So I'm just not sure.
I don't think the Hunter appears at all. It shows every special infected but that one and the Witch.
Well, if you look on top of the downed plane in that scene in the WAY far right corner you can see something crawling in the fashion of a hunter, but doesn't do anything else. Since the mudmen also crawl it cant be a surefire assumption that it is a hunter.
I can't see the pictures on the main page. I am using Safari 4.0.5 on a Mac OS X 10.5.8. I can see the rest of the pictures on the site, are these just broken, or is my computer weirding up on me again?
As of right now, I can see them (Opera 10.10 on Windows 7).
Not sure if someone fixed 'em or if my computer spontaneously decided to work again, but I can see them now. Thanks!

How well does it match the trope?
