Here's a new strat:

- Play your match.

General / Do any of you use squad hotkeys?

Just for obs and AL, like everyone else.

Cause no one follows waypoints anyway.

I think I have a thing for games with the Marines vs. Aliens setting.

NS and Gloom have both occupied so much of my time...

General / How did the game end?

I still think 2.01 was the best version in terms of balance, by a LONG shot.

General / What would you want to see in Source version?

Hitboxes, ragdolls, and teh s0urc3 grafix.

General / Tip for shooting for marines?
« on: May 03, 2005, 01:36:29 PM »
First tip: DON'T PANIC. Most important thing is to remain calm and on target.

Track slowly and smoothly.

Burst while you're getting the hang of it.

Once you've got it, hold the button down.

Also, having a key bound to Jump on your mouse is handy for dodging skulks.

Learn to bounce away from them or dodge them outright as they're coming at you.

Circle strafing is also good to learn for use in open areas.

Once you've got tracking down and you're good with the LMG, learn to snap with the shotty.

Rush the skulk. You should have a teammate with you to snuff him out if you die, anyway.

Ruled. I hate big trucks, and people who drive them like idiots even more.

Can't hurt, right?

I think a plugin to turn off hive FF would be the coolest.

Give him $175 for it, then.

Turn it off for a couple weeks and let's see how it is.

Or a mod to turn off hive FF damage would be cool.

If anything its the Aliens + the amazing skill power + missboxes.

Bolded for effect. Skulks now have an invisible kevlar helmet.

Oh, and it rapes your FPS pretty hard sometimes.

General / the problem
« on: April 23, 2005, 11:22:47 AM »
There are a few things that I see as the problem, here. Mostly revolving around our friend the Fade.

One is how easy it is to hit and run, because of how easy it is to regain health as a Fade, and how hard it is to keep your armor as a Marine. It costs no res whatsoever, and takes minimal time to regain health as a Fade, due to blink. You blink into a room, swipe a couple times at a Marine, and take off. When you come back with full health, he's got no armor, and maybe one swipe left on him. Simple.

On the Marine side, it costs res for medpacks, and it takes player coordination in addition to res for welders to get your armor back. The res dropped on welders and medpacks is small individually, but over time you can blow through a ton of it if you're trying to keep shotgunners alive, or trying to set up a siege spot.

The second is how hard it is to counter this hit and run strategy. Sure, you have shotguns, but you need to be virtually dead on with at least 2 shotgunners to have any effect on a good hit and run Fade. What about HMG's? Well it's 30 res to upgrade the armory, which takes forever to finish. Then you're shelling out res for the HMG's themselves, plus you need at least weaps 2. Now, give me that, and I'll mow down your Fade, but that takes too much time to get to, and too much res invested. Over time, the counter to the Fade costs the Marines far more than 50 res.

Of course there's more to balance, but that's how I weigh in on the Fade.

Check and make sure your AGP rate is still at 8X. I had some problems with mine resetting to off with my 9800 Pro.
