to the standard pub alien boom strat
if you are on a server, and the aliens ALWAYS boom (that is, all go gorge and drop a node) may i suggest some neato difference?
-right off the start, drop an ip or two, for ONE marine to build.
-listen for the hive
-based on that, estimate where the gorges will go to drop their first rt
(usually close to the hvie, or far away from MS)
-direct your riens to spread out and camp all those nodes., gotta be stealthy
-HOPEFULLY kill those gorges before they can drop (or after:)) the node. thus prolonging, and slowing down the aliens considerably.
so it's just an opening gambit, but a good one, at the VERY start (first minute) the aliens are all over the place, either gesting, or dropping a node, they can't help each other. and now that they have to wait for another 10 rez to turn back to gorge and drop it (ideally, wait for 25 res if you killed the rt they dropped), you can expand really quickly.
-aliens who ALWAYS boom
-rines who know the map
-ample med spam
