There was a ghost update this morning hopefully to fix the bugs in the lobby system introduced by yesterday's "update."

Very happy about the VS improvement. The infected HUD has been done up a bit, for the better, too. Have not properly tested new maps, but poor design seems to prevail throughout on initial try. (Hello hundreds of invisible walls, goodbye decent infected spawn places, particularly for hunters.) Pity anyone with a 360 who actually pays for this DLC...

Is that L4D or L4D2?

Maybe make a separate topic for L4D2 updates or put it into the post if it's L4D2 or 1 :D
