So I have this problem... I just can't enjoy playing aliens on pubs any more.
I like teamplay, but I hate getting stuck with the "permgorge" role. No one ever thanks you for the job, they just demand more chambers while they go fade and onos.
Every single game, I tell people to immediately cap a res node or a defense (or other if agreed upon) chamber. Yet, I only see one res tower dropped and no one drops any chambers. I try to amass enough early-game RFK to get to 50, then go to drop the hive... about the same time, 3 fades and an onos spring up. We still only have two nodes and only one DC, yet people spend all of their res on themselves.
I'm just disgusted with it; especially when we lose because of it. We'll have a ton of electrified marine nozzles, but the fades don't bother taking them down. The res is trickling in ridiculously slowly, and there's four free nozzles near our hive... yet some guy has 65 res and says "10 res til I go onos!"
Do people honestly think that a single-hive fade is infinitely more effective at killing marines than two-hive skulks with MC and DC while gorges bile bomb? Would it kill them to play skulk a -little bit longer- if they spent their res on buying the team another resource tower?
By the time we get enough res to go fade or onos after dropping all the chambers for the team, the game is already over and we don't get to see the fruits of 20-minutes hiding behind an OC while dropping chambers and hives.
So, if anyone else has this problem, what do you do? Every time I try to tell my team mates to straighten up their act, they run to that excuse of "Don't tell me how to play the game, nub gorge! I have a lot more kills than you!"
