To quote the great Morpheus from the Matrix (with one word replaced with "fun")
QUOTE (Morpheus Aug 11 2185 @ 12:27 PM)
What is fun? How do you define fun? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then fun is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.
I couldn't resist. But anyway, my point is; what are the most "fun" things to do in NS? If we can pinpoint exactly what makes NS fun, we can (hopefully) ensure the fun aspects are never removed.
Personally, I think one of the most fun things you can do as a marine is be in a big squad of HA's and clump your way towards the alien's hive. The feeling of POWER (MWAAHAAHAAAHAA!!!) that you r teh invincible HA (!!!111one) that can own the ownos itself makes you feel goooood Even if you do get devoured 2 seconds later.
And of course, having a shottie. (or shootgun as the newbies have dubbed it)
As aliens, well, there are far more fun things to do tbh.
*Cloak as a gorge, put up an SC and build right outside their base, then laugth evilly as a squad of marines comes out of the base and is spiked to death by your beautiful cloaked OCs, MWAHAAHAA!
*Fadeing. What more can I say? Blink, slash slash, AAARGH!!! blink "WTH WAS THAT?"
*Lerking.... sometimes. Not so fun as it used to be tbh, the lerk can't be the guerilla fighter it used to be, but can still cause some serious mayhem with a few well placed spores
*Onosing. Need I say more? Devour is teh pwn once you realise the target must be in the CENTRE of your view, and ideally be stunned. Don't try and attack up a slope tho.... :/
*Skulking. Chuckling in the vents, hanging on the ceiling and waiting for the unfortunate marine who obviously wasn't trainned to look up, leap used to be fun, but now it has been nerfed for no good reason which I can see (i.e, the weaponswitch time is so huge you can't leap then bite like you could).
So what are your most fun things to do in NS? I just know someone is going to say something along the lines of "Well jetpacking was fun in 1.04 but now they nerfed it!!!!!1eleven", so just don't. Jetpacking was fun, and indeed still IS if you can do it right, but it was clearly overpowered. (yes it was! Don't argue!)
*edit* Got the quote fixed. Think of this as post 1.01 beta *edit*
