I must say, thank the lord, the new changes, and especially the re-release of bast, let me experience the best game of NS i've had since NS1.. and Epic 67 minute long game (by far the longest since the 3+ hour long games of NS1). Back and forth constantly, taking of hives back and forth, great.
Bast is a terrific example of a map, lots of great choke points... I cant really place my finger on it, but because its basically the only map from NS1 that hasnt had many major changes (eclipse, tanith have been modified greatly), it seems to work better.
I just feel it necessary to say great work, Im glad to see my constellation dollars are going into improving the game.
*goes back to playing the epic-in-scale games of old*
