MMGN is an Austalian news and gaming website, they are also sneaky buggers who think they can school ModDB and its community at L4D2. As I said, sneaky buggers. You should never poke the sleeping giant!

Heller wrote:after some really spicy food and too many beers some things were said, some threats were made and now they've challenged us to a L4D2 match!

This is where you guys come in since the rules are quite simple, I need two or three (depending how many of the ModDB staff can play) community members to join the ModDB team and show these guys who is boss in verses mode.


  • Must loath zombies except when you are a zombie, then you must love them
  • Must know how to click the mouse buttons
  • The ability to throw a Molotov at a tank
  • Smack-talk is not a requirement but wouldn't hurt (us, you can hurt MMGN with it)

If you are interested let me know on the comments or over PM's. I am also told that there will be a stream going up and a recording at some point with the gameplay. More details when I know them!

i wish you a lot of frags ;']
i can build a linux live-dvdrom for the server you will use : i made some but as valve update it too much , i stopped to keep "up2date"
the main good thing is that it loads all files in the ram of a 4 Go pc
check old releases and tell me by pm if you want a new one with campaigns

You're serious... They challenged a community that not only knows the vanilla game back to front... but also regularly creates campaigns for it?

Much *** shall be kicked.

SPY-maps Aug 31 2011, 9:35am says:

never heart of MMGN before, till now. Just checked there site but it doesn't come even close to Moddb! And, there is no mod and or indie section on MMGN, so why are we even talking about them.

I am a SP gamer, no MP fan. So i am of no help at all with this, but consider me one of those fans who will shout MODDB !! MODDB !! from the side line!!

(please record fight and show it here, and, kick there ***~!! MODDB!!)
