marines lose so much
I recently got back into ns and tried out the new combat system on Beta 5. It seems that no matter how good the marines are, the aliens just keep winning.
Most of the aliens keep getting this exploding upgrade that completely destroys your armor (xenocide if i remember correctly) and with consequtive blasts, you just die. And the other thing is the new focus upgrade that totally rocks any marine w/o armor. It's really hard to stay alive once a skulk gets that 4th ability and his mates get focus.
