Valve has posted some interesting figures for Left 4 Dead 2‘s Mutation modes. More after the jump!
Valve has posted some interesting figures for Left 4 Dead 2‘s Mutation modes. According to the team:
“The idea behind the Mutations was simple. Left 4 Dead 2 is played by many different players and types of players. Some players have 300+ hours played in almost daily games and some players only play in weekly casual games with friends. We wanted to create weekly events that mixed up the game rules to experiment with gameplay and made people look at the game in new ways.”
“Before Mutations, what got played the most? It really depended on the day. Versus and Co-op Campaign were tied neck and neck each with around 40% (80-85% total) of the players on any given day. The other 15-20% was split between Survival, Realism and Scavenge.”
The top 3 Mutations based on percentage of players who tried it at least once:
- 52% Chainsaw Massacre
- 45% Last Man On Earth
- 41% Realism Versus
The top 3 Mutations based on percentage of players minutes during featured week:
- 22% Realism Versus
- 14% Chainsaw Massacre
- 12% Last Gnome on Earth
In related news, Valve has also revealed this week’s mutation mode. Dubbed as “Gib Fest”, the latest mutation will be a hell of a mess as everyone on the team getting is M60’s and unlimited ammo.
