Marines usually expect stuff to blink from tunnels and vents. Not from 5 feet away in plain sight. :\

Good point, I suppose.  Nevertheless, considering that the Fade's defining attribute is its speed, it seems a waste to wait for the marine to come to you.

Cloaked onos = win, especially on a map like Veil. Just stand there and devour one as he passes, stomp, and gore :D Note: Never ever move your view. The whole onos rotates and makes you very visible.

ive been told by many im a "comm's best friend" when im a grunt. i also am a pretty good comm, although its been a while since i hopped in. i usually spend my time on aliens as gorge getting rts. id like to think im a good skulk too. seldom do i onos unless the games already in the bag, as i always manage to find something that needs building.

I'm really good with the gl , I'm not so good with jetpacks. Mostly I go lerk to try to be a support unit , but I always die  v_v . I don't go onos much , and I'm pretty good as a skulk if I have silence or cloaking.
Don't mess with me punk, I'll post in your

I'm halfway decent with a shotty, but I usually do better with an LMG.  When I get a hold of an HMG and maybe some armor, though, better watch out :)

As aliens, I'm horrible at everything, so I usually gorge up the whole time.  I just discovered I'm not half bad with the new lerk, though, so maybe that's the ticket.

hahaaha, that's because you're the team B**ch  :p

but seriously, a good gorge or right-hand-man can make the difference when the teams are pretty equally divided.

Another thing, I prefer to work alone or in small groups when marine.

Also, I'm quite good at placing mines.  When given the task of mining a base, I try to see myself as an attacking Skulk.  I consider the route of entry, the targets of choice and angle from which I would attack them, and any hiding spots, and I place the mines accordingly.
