a way to ruin games easily
Last night I played in a game where I was marine and we were doing quite well... after a bit I called for a medkit and nothing came... called again... noticed the commander had left the game.... I was killed, spawned, and noticed we had no command center (lol that loser lost the command center than fled before any marines realized what happened) we did get the aliens eventually, with just our wits, motion tracking, and the lmgs we spawn with.
but what if this were combined with another trend i've seen in some games lately?
Marines are winning, they get all three hives, just stragglers remain, but all the stragglers need killed to end the game... so the go and hide in vents, on top of buildings, or in general any place not easily accessable to marines. Now the marines need to spend another ten minutes getting jetpacks and gl's and rooting through every corner and vent to finally win the game... but if they can't get these things (maybe because of the story i told earlier) how can they ever win? whats there to stop the alien from sitting in his little vent forever and pretty much wasting the server until he feels like leaving?
