where do you send those marines?
Okay, Ive read the comm guides and played NS a lot, but I have never commed before. However, as i have played, i have seen all types of different marine players, and each comm has done different things with them. So, what would you consider would be the best use of these marines, both early and late game. I can't tell the best way to use the potential of each marine, and wanted your guys' views on the matter. (we are assuming in this case that the marines will at least pay marginal attention to waypoints and orders)
Marine type 1: Armory humper nub, runs in, shoots everything he can, usually gets killed by an oc or something, occasionally takes out a skulk
Marine type 2: Awesome, clan member or vet, has k/d ratio through the roof
Marine type 3: Primadonna, doing great, rarely listens, rambos often, keeps asking for shotty
Marine type 4: Useful, but a bad shot. Marine follows waypoints, builds what you say to build, does what you say to do, but just cant seem to hit those skulks.
Marine type 5: Clever. Fairly decent k/d ratio, usually follows waypoints unless busy doing something else, comes up with own strategies to kill aliens or take rooms, usually differ from yours. Rambos when he is ignored. Welds any weldables he comes across.
Marine type 6: Standard grunt. Kills things, usually goes to waypoints, usually follows other marines, tends to shoot over build, gets about a 4/3 k/d ratio.
So, given marines of types such as these, how would you divvy them up, and what tasks would be best to set them to?
