Could we have i like in NS1: Only need res for lifeforms, not a number of hives?
The onos is now not a fighter, it is instead only for finishing an already won game (3 hives means huge ownage of aliens). It's a bit sad, because it's one of the most fun to play lifeforms. There could be enormous battles, if onoses would fight for getting the third hive, not for killing bases only.
And also I found it way to hard to get another 2nd hive up if the first was killed - because you just can't get lifeforms, even with 3 rts up..
I think it was one of the most exciting points of NS1, that lifeforms would always be coming up and had to struggle wih less upgrades and abilities at one hive - but have the chance to earn more by rushing another hive.
The way it is now: Be the better team, enjoy yourself having an onos in the end to make an epic 'GRRROOOAARR' end. In even battles you will never get an onos, because in even battles there's (usually) no third hive.
