stop locking down stuff
You're a great comm. You've got a two hive lockdown: Phase gates, lots of turrets and even electrification. These nublets on the alien team have no chance to survive, and must make thier time.BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRING
I'm not going to even get into why locking down hives are a stupid idea in the first place. The main point of this thread is to tell you that two hive lockdown games arn't fun for either side. Sure you're going to win the game, but its a heartless and unfun win. These games ride on the notion that "Its just a matter of time" before the marines get all the res nodes, electrify them all and then move on the hive with heavy hmgs and full upgradesSTOP IT!
These games arn't fun for BOTH teams, win or lose. I'd rather have an epic game where I lose than play out a two-hive turretfarm, nodeelec game. Not only are they not fun, it shows inexperience, incompetence and ingorance of a commander. You fully well know that the game is over. Don't drag it out. Move in for the kill. You don't need every non-occupied node on the map before you kill that hive. You don't need to turretfarm every location of strategic importance.
Know your marines. Know their abilities and play within them. If you can clearly see that your marines are handling the alien team with one hand tied behind their backs, then exploit it! If they can handle skulks with lmgs anywhere on the map, chances are they can handle them even better with shotguns while rushing that hive.MOVE IN!
Get the game over with, so the skill stack can even them out with a new game.
Say it with me now boys and girls2 HIVE TURRETFARM LOCKDOWN GAMES ARE BORING!
Why do we play games? We play games because we want to have fun. How do we have fun? Do we have to win to have fun? Usually this is the case, but it doesn't have to be! These types of games are NOT fun and completely contradict the reason why we play games!
Go for the nonstandard win. Try a new strategy. Get motion tracking first for once in your life. Try catpacks. Try grenade launcher rush. TRY SOMETHING NEW.
