is it an exploit?
Marines had taken over Power Silo, so I evolved regen and adrenaline, took my life in my hands and leaped up to the roof area in Power Silo, taking considerable damage from the turret farm in the process.
Spent some more hard-earned res to evolve into a gorge and build a defence chamber. Then I proceeded to dump bilebombs on the marine equipment. Without jetpacks or grenades, they had no chance of hitting me at all, but I could bilebomb them to heck and back.
At this point someone (a marine) started complaining that this was an exploit and that I should be banned for doing it. Before long another gorge had joined the fun, and a lerk was up there with us sporing the bejeezus out of the poor marines who were trying to repair the damage our bilebombs were doing.
As it happens, nobody got banned and we soon cleared out Silo, built the hive and went on to win the game.
What do you think? Is this an unfair tactic? Or should the marines know better and research jets/grenades if they're going to try to control an alien-friendly room like Silo?
