Garena Guide on Hosting and Connecting


Garena - Left 4 Dead 
Guide by Versatile

This  guide was made because I am sick of repeating answers in the Garena chat room, and I’m sure that the others in the chat rooms are sick of seeing the same questions over and over.  This guide is meant to be general, so the same steps apply whenever there is a new update to Left 4 Dead.

All I have to say is “Don’t be a tool”.  Learn to think for yourself, and find information for yourself. Stop asking questions on things you have not done yet.  It shows you want to be spoon fed, and have taken no initiative. Sorry, but it had to be said.
