Anyone who was unfortunate enough to be stuck playing marines on  server last night for about 4 hours was introduce to the wrath of NS1 gorge rush REDUX. It was an unstoppable force that is 2-3x more powerful then NS1 version and is near unbeatable. In NS1 gorges were much more limited and this helped in keeping the unstoppable force of the gorge rush down. Plus the nerf to area healing helped.
Lets take a quick look at why gorges in 206 are super op in groups. In NS1 if you opted for gorge rush you had enough resource to evolve and drop 1 OC per gorge if no one dropped first resource tower which would seriously gimp your team if rush failed. Come NS2 Gorge rush REDUX, you can evolve to a gorge and drop 3 hydras which do about same damage as a single NS1 OC and actually build faster too. You don't need to worry about initial resource towers and you have a movement speed bonus with gorge slide. Not only can you evolve and drop 3 hydras, but in NS2 if you happen to lose 1-2 gorges on initial push, you can just instantly re-evolve and drop 3 more hydras. In NS1 if you died you were OOL and were unable to re-evolve. This on top of the mass group healing makes NS2 gorge rushing 2-3x more powerful in NS2 and i would dare to say unbeatable. Now the addition of infestation somewhat hinders the NS2 hydra spam, but when you have a alien hive next to marine base this becomes a non-factor with mini-crysts. Even with the proposed changes to gorges buildings dying after death i still think the current early game state of gorge is OP.
*EDIT* Few Ideas to fix problem. -Gorge cost 15-20 resource to evolve. This would prevent the immediate re-evolution think this is best option. -Lower Starting resource of Aliens. -Lower initial hydra count until hive 2 or augmentation from 3 down to 1-2 -Add resource cost to hydra's before hive 2 or augmentation. After which they would be free. -Lower cyst spread speed of mini cysts. Maybe infestation speed could increase with number of hives. -Lower gorge heal/adrenaline or health before hive 2/Augmentation
Well that my 2 cents on 206 gorge changes. Feel Free to flame/agree with me.
PS. Sorry to all marines who were on receiving end last night.
