Apparently less than seven days of iffy connections were enough to call Ellie to action, though, as their most recent mod allows players to take out their frustration against the very objects of their mental anguish.
You know how every first-person shooter boasts some sort of in-game object that, when shot, explodes?
In Left 4 Dead 2, as well as about a million other games, those items take the form of propane tanks. The “Shitty Steam Servers” mod simply replaces those tanks with objects that are based on the servers folks have been having trouble connecting through in the game.
After suffering from the 9th server crash this week, I had enough.
Steam and Valve clearly don’t freakin’ care about L4D2 because they made all official server crash with their new stupid update for Steam Controller (who uses controller in a PC FPS like really).
Since 10 days, it’s almost impossible to pass map 3 on every L4D2 server, thanks again to Valve and their (as always) bad update; why do you need to mess up with an old cool game that way.
After a week of trying to play on shaky servers, one brave Left 4 Dead 2 modder has taken matters into their own hands.
Assuming you can jump into a round of the game, you can now unleash your fury at those servers by blowing up, well, those servers.
The Steam Workshop grants access to all sorts of different mods for all of your favorite games.You can cruise around Grand Theft Auto V as The Hulk or wage war against giant Ponies in Skyrim.Like with those two examples, many of these mods take something that doesn’t belong in the game and inserts it in a clever and entertaining fashion.I’m not sure any modder has gotten quite as meta as Ellie, though, whose “Shitty Steam Servers” mod puts the servers you’re actually playing on into Left 4 Dead 2.About a week ago, a patch went live that basically borked the servers for many L4D2 players.Steam actually got in contact with the folks at Steamed to explain that this was due to an SDK update that has since been rolled back and will be reinstated once further testing has been done.
