right. You might be thinking WTF is this guy on? They're going to have fades really fast!
Here's the logic:
1) most aliens have a pool of 33 rps and a huge pool accumulating in the background.
2) in a protracted battle for the second hive, this pool of RPs can accumulate to collossal amounts of RPs.
3) If they get the second hive early, LET THEM be fades.
4) if these fades die, they won't have the RPs to evolve immediately if it is still early in the game.
Let them finish building the hive, and clear out the hive (you should be getting attacked constantly by skulks)
When you see fades (assuming you control the second hive) KILL THE HIVE.
then kill the fades.
Back to skulks for them, you, on the other hand, will be able use the delay to research, expand, etc.
Am I making sense?
