Supposedly Valve has given the patch to Microsoft and they will release it when they feel like it. All we can do is wait. Hopefully in a month or two it will be out. I agree a patch is overdue, but we'll just have to be patient.

Dark Void got a patch 11 months later, Ghost Busters got one quite a while after it was due... Hopefully that it's at least a sign that we'll get one... In a year.

I would like to say Valve are probably too busy with Portal 2 as it's been delaid a few months...

I doubt that's the case but I'm not giving up on them whilst I wait for the patch. I love their titles

I take comfort in knowing that I'm not alone in my frustrations.

But honestly, I've got so many other games to complete, I often forget to check this forum for updates for weeks at a time. Everything will get sorted in due time.

A watched pot never boils.

this shouldn't surprise anyone. we're talking about a dlc that was announced late, released late, and was always supposed to be FIVE scenes. the fact that it also has broken achievements w/ a fix that may not even come is just icing on the cake. can't wait to never buy L4D3...

I think it's rather harsh to say you won't buy a product (in this case l4d3) because of a previous product. Sure I'm frustrated just like all of you and I can rant and rave all day about it but I'll get straight to my point as to why boycotting isn't necessarily the answer. Left4Dead 1 has always had issues with the servers and dlc. Issues of either released on time or glitched, regardless - issues are issues. We all speculated if the new dlc would be glitched before it even came out and referenced it to being another crash course in the making. It really can't be a complete surprise that it wasn't 100% what we expected which sucks in the long run but it's still a decent product. Left4Dead 2's version of this wasn't glitched at all. It seems that the issues lie somewhere in L4D1's coding. So saying you wouldn't buy L4D3 wouldn't make any sense, it'd more than likely be glitch free just like 2 was.

As said before, if you want to hurt valve and not penalize yourself and enjoy some of their new titles - you have the option to not purchase the game as new - yet purchase it used and hit them where it hurts. Wait til it's a few weeks or months old and ensure that it's quality then go buy it used. Simple enough.

"Left4Dead 2's version of this wasn't glitched at all." sorry, but, hahahhahahhahahahhahahahah, you might be able to get the achievements, but please don't pretend it's not full of glitches.

Valve will probably announce a patch in about 3 months, so expect to wait until April 2012

Granted, I didn't play sacrifice till a week or so after it came out on L4D2, but what glitches? Seems pretty polished to me.

that's what i meant. i've talked about it in some of the other threads.

fuck valve in the ass, they have a lot of people who love to make excuses for them (they're a pc company! nyahh!) but the bottom line is that they charged us for dlc (TWICE for the sacrifice!!) and didn't deliver a solid product. they blatantly LIED about the sacrifice in the months leading up to its release. they very well may have LIED when they said a patch for 360 was imminent. they suck.

I'm pretty sure they don't charge for the DLC, microsoft does. I'm not saying they don't see some money from it but it's microsoft that makes most DLC be paid for.
Valve are notoriusly slow to do anything, i get the frustration some are having but this was to be expected. Sucks but it's true.

Plenty of people have been doing just that. Myself included. All they will say now is that they have passed the update on to Microsoft. Assuming their employees are telling the truth, it's up to Microsoft now. All we can do is wait.

I'm not holding my breath on a patch here... Crash Course came out when? And it's glitchy achievements still haven't been patched.

I wish there was a little more transparency on Microsoft's end; A list of titles with patches awaiting approval for release. Then the developers can't hide behind the excuse "We already submitted it". Honestly I don't believe that they have submitted anything to MS.

I'm holding on to my MS points until I'm able to get 1500/1500.

I 2nd that notion as well. It is too easy for a company to blame Microshaft by stating that excuse. Patches take approximately 2 weeks to go thru the certification process, not months. And if you are naive and "trust" what game developers say, then you are dumber than a post.

I'll give you the point on the DLC, but Valve is slow? You do know that the PC version of L4D1 got a Sacrifizzle patch 3 days after it was released right?

that is NOT an acceptable fucking excuse, yet it's one i hear CONSTANTLY. that's a load of bullshit, pure and simple. it may not have been their idea to charge a fee, but they are still responsible.

The effective range of an excuse is 0 meters.

Given that Ghostbusters and Dark Void both got patches, and some Japanese game got patched 2 years later, I feel like it will eventually get patched, so I'm not that worried.

I got Left 4 Dead used for $10 at FYE some months back, got Crash Course on discount and bought The Sacrifice with free Bing Rewards points. So Valve saw very little money from me anyway. I can't be mad. Especially since it's just one achievement. It'll work itself out eventually.

If only we had the freedom to download The Sacrifice for free and pay Valve a few years down the line when we feel like it, which is essentially what we gamers are being subjected to until Sacrifizzle is patched.
The finger pointing at Microsoft is ridiculous because the bottom line is that Valve should not have submitted broken DLC to Microsoft in the first place. All it takes is one of us achievement loving gamers to test the Achievements and see that Sacrifizzle was glitched. There were only five new achievements added, did no one play test this?
It is embarrassing for Valve and insulting to me as a consumer, who willingly paid for The Sacrifice DLC for both L4D and L4D2. I will be patiently waiting for the Sacrifizzle patch to eventually release, but this will be the last dollar from my pocket spent to continue supporting Valve's broken system. Thank you for the memories.

I want people to know this what I am about to say this to Valve.

I have 3 words to you. FUCK YOU, VALVE.

I am done with their products and will not buy from them again. I have had enough with them.
