DUH DUH DUUUUUUHHHMMMmmm.

the world will never know, like how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? and yes, i know, Mr. Owl is supposed to know, but i knew him,  and he was an idiot with a flair for wearing stupid hats and glasses (the goof had 20/20 vision).

I went with B as I want fun.  However more often than not, many losing games aren't that fun.

eh i don't think every game is fun cause there have been a few games where i've been on the winning team only to have no fun at all due to idiots, lamers, and griefers. granted that was on a different server where the admins didn't give a care

Why make a poll like this?  Its akin to asking if you would rather A. clean your room, or B. Have your fingers slowly broken 1 by 1.

Of course people are going to chose to have fun... but you get abosolutly no useful data from asking the question, as you don't adress nearly any of the issues involved in the having of fun, and the winning of games.

GG scientific method  :(

well I agree with you, but there are some people out there who just want to win and blames the whole team or other people if they lose. To me, playing with those people I will try helping him to achieve his goal (winning the game), so he/she will shut their mouth.

I hate people who complains about the comm and no skills to back it up. Those people take the fun out off everything.

well, Losing a game as alien is actually NEVER EVER fun. I have yet to remember a time when losing as Alien was even SLIGHTLY fun and not frustrating and angering.

And I know why its so angering. Because Losing on Alien is heartbreaking because you put in all that time and effort into dropping RT's chambers, hives, etc. Getting your team in order, finding out who's doing what and going what. and then.....

All of that just to have your hive Killed by a few Shotgunners, Or to sit and try to break the inpenitratible walls of a well defended Seige Base.

Its like building a wonderful sand castle only for it to be owned by a giant title wave, Or fat kid missing a diving football catch and landing straight into it.

But on Marines, you simply just take the weapons, hold E for 15-50 seconds to get some buildings up and follow your waypoints. If you get pushed back who cares? Last stands are quite fun for Marines.

Indeed he does. I got me to thinking I imagine alien losses are much like what a comm feels now and then when the marines lose. I myself have never commed, but it similar to what Diablus was saying, you put so much time and effort into it only to lose.

Its really annoying if as an alien you're giving 100 percent and dropping what the team needs, only for the team to turn around and shaft you because none of them can be bothered to drop res, kill rts, drop chambers, drop hives, guard you while you put a new hive up, etc.

Depressing.

The curse of the permagorge.  There really should be a teleportation feature in NS, when a gorge calls for help, any player can teleport to his position.

Well lolfighter, if you run into marine start as gorge you wouldn't last more than a few seconds, so it wouldn't be that bad.
