Default HWC Left4Dead Servers!

You may have noticed that there's a single solitary HWC server under "Steam Group Servers" on the main L4D screen.

There's also a couple other "hidden" servers as well!


Here are instrucitons for connecting:

Start a lobby. Doesn't matter the game type.
Open the console using "~"
Type "sv_search_key HardwareCanucks" without the quotes
Fill the lobby as normal.
Press Start
Enjoy!



These servers are located in Seattle.
If you have any problems, please PM me or message me on Steam.

One more reason to join the HWC Steam Group!
Join up on NCIXGaming's Steam Group as well. We also host frequent Left4Dead games.

Interesting...but getting kicked out isn't a good introduction IMO.

Technically even I don't have admin rights, since I don't have Sourcemod on there yet.

A good introduction for them or for me? Look, it was some little "clanner buddies" and it was 3 of them, 1 of me. Voted off.... of our own server.... How is that right in any way?

I assume it's the one under Steam Group Servers right?
That's more of a "pub" server until I figure out how to restrict it to Steam Group members only.

I highly recommend joining via sv_search_key.

After you've filled the lobby and filled in sv_search_key, hit start.
It'll automatically dump you into HWC's server.

ah cool, seems to have worked. Only problem seems to be my ping. Hovering at 100ms or more with only myself and bots playing.... Yet i have Videotron Extreme high speed interenet (approx. 9mbps) and am in Montreal... shouldnt it be better than that?
