I suck. Help me not suck.
OK, so I've been playing tons of NS lately (mostly in preparation for NS2) and while I am accustomed to being "better than average" at most games, I can't stop sucking at NS. Part of me wants to think that since I have only been back playing for a few weeks that I simply don't know the maps well enough, need to play more, and that the players still playing NS are typically the best players that stuck around. However, I still suck and want to suck less.... so I've narrowed down my #1 issue: keybinds.
I hate the "change ability then use" functionality and I think I could vastly improve if I knew a way to change binds so that I could set a key to simply use an ability when pressed. The reload/alien-ability bind is nice and I've tried to get by using the "swap to last ability" bind but I hate it. Is there a way to bind keys to abilities without using scripts (since scripts aren't allowed where I play)?
Any other random general advice to help get over the hump and cure my suck is welcome.
