Stolen Pixels #97: Left 4 Dumb, Part 15

Stolen Pixels #97: Left 4 Dumb, Part 15

You don't always need to outrun the Tank. You just need to outrun your teammates.

No "He Punched out all of my blood"?

You're slipping.

Also the tank looks like hes trying to stop a car with his hand out.

I'm still not sure how these screenshot comics are supposed to entertain

And I can always out run my team mates. :-D

Sounds like ,,D&D running away from monsters manual'', just outrun the slowest party member. ^^

Or make sure someone in the party is a Cavalier, duty bound to not flee from combat unless they get below 0 hit points.

Ha ha! The tank gives a whole new meaning to the occupation of "organ grinder"...

we ddi that once, but everyone was on red apart from me. I made and thats enough for me.

All I'm going to say is that a shotgun blast to the kneecap makes it very easy to outrun your teammates.

Have I done that? "Possibly", but not to anyone who hasn't had it coming...

lol, for some reason I completely mis-read the first pane and thought it looked like a picnic. :-D

Louis can't feel his brainz? I can't feel them either........... is that bad? :'S

"Left 4 Dumb" is not Shamus' best. Check out the rest of Stolen Pixels.

This is my usaul tactic when playing left 4 dead, just run away closing doors behind me :), then get smokered :(.

I don't think that is the same story anymore. Lighting the tank on fire will just dwindle his health until he dies. This was added into the Xbox version I still don't know about the Computer version.

Oh I have, though I'm not sure why. The strip lacks humour, drama, intrigue or any interesting ongoing stories/jokes. It's also crippled by not exactly being pretty, especially with some horrendous text placement. I mean if Concerned can take a videogame and make a good comic with it it isn't too much to expect something a bit spanglier from this.

But I digress I'm overly cynical and this has a fanbase as far as I can tell

Don't worry the Reaper shall save Zoey!

It was on both from the start they added it so people could kill tanks on expert without like 3 people dieing.

Worth reading in my opinion.

Then why are you here, ruining it for us?
Cough, troll, cough.

Also, I didn't know about the timer part. I just thought that it dealt damage to him over a period of time, but it would stop once the fire was put out.
Very interesting.

Haven't had one tank I pyro'ed go out until he was dead yet. If ever he did go out and was still slamming his fists around, then I would make a serious attempt to outrun everyone to the saferoom. (But only then (same for the witch, but she is hella harder to outrun))

Yes, it does, and I'm sure we all thank you for stopping by. "Cynical" is not the right word, there, I think you mean "critical"; for example, I am being overly *critical* of your word choice, I'm not being *cynical* about it. If I were being cynical, I might suggest that you don't really care one way or the other about Stolen Pixels, and are instead attempting to derive amusement by starting a flame war. "Distrusting the motives of others", see?

Well ya on Campiagns the tank will die on 40 seconds once lit on fire. I was talking about the Vs mode.

*facepalm* that was rhetorical!!!!

Ha?

This series should have ended when it was still funny.

I don't have to outrun the bear Tank... I just have to outrun you.

And honestly, the way his AI tends to play in the single-player campaign, I'm not sure Louis ever COULD feel his brains.

I'M MELTING!

well that wasnt very obvious now was it! :P

wasn't it a bad idea to hide behind a car to begin with? =D
Oh well, I can't wait to see whether this tank is the mythical uber tank, only unleashed upon the sinners with extra ... (extra...) health.

Francis is going to be the last one alive huh?

(though maybe not having a twist is the twist..)

Hmm you're not wrong, I did use the wrong word there. Critical would be more appropriate. But then it seems I'm not being critical enough, having only caused some minor antagonism from people who are insistent that someone can't hold a negative opinion without being a troll or someone trying to instigate a flame war. This comic(if it can technically be called that) is awful and I can have that opinion AND share it. If you enjoy it then that's fine but I myself just see it as pretty poorly made crap.

OK, fair enough, and I'm sorry if I wrongly accused you of wanting to start a flame war.

I'm genuinely curious, though: what's your motivation, here? There are many, MANY things on the vast Internet that I don't enjoy -- the huge majority of things, in fact. I don't go around and say so in their forums. Why would I? Why would you? It has never, that I've seen, changed anyone's mind on the subject. It seems like it'll only annoy people who do enjoy it, while bringing no benefit to you . . . Of course, you're free to do it, and again, I'm sorry to have been snarky in my earlier comment.
