Playing on XBox Live. Keep dying. Lousy teammates won't revive me. But that's not even the problem...

I KEEP GETTING SPAWNED AS A GIRL!

It's starting to give me a complex. Please, make it stop...

For a while, my steam user name was "I always random Zoey". I've been there, pal! –  Raven Dreamer Mar 29 '11 at 5:06
    
Am I the only one who enjoys when this happens? –  Warren P May 6 '11 at 13:46
    
I've heard but can't confirm that it will attempt to use the character you've played most - so if you're forced into Zoe/Rochelle often, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. You can see who you play as on your steam stats page. You can improve the numbers by playing single player/starting your own game so you can pick the appropriate char. –  Basic Jan 5 '12 at 3:32

When you are in the lobby menu, you can choose the character you want; just pick one other than Rochelle (or Zoey if you're doing a map with L4D1 characters). If your other three teammates have already selected the other male characters, you are SOL.

Better yet, stop caring.

Note that in Versus, you can only choose if you're on the Survivor side first. If you're on the Infected side first, you'll get randomly assigned a character. –  user2974 Mar 29 '11 at 5:31

I upvoted this for "stop caring" more than for the description of the choose character option. –  Steve V. Mar 29 '11 at 13:48
    
"Stop caring" should apply to this question. –  NiteCyper Jun 1 '13 at 10:21
