lets live a bit longer guys
ok i found that out yesterday and i have to post it just cause its really good. i played 3vs3 yesterday and i was comm. so i sent my rines to get some restowers, secured the first hive, etc.
i went for the second hive after some minutes but it was their mainhive so it was kind of protected through OCs. Now my plan was to siege it (how creative *g*)
but before my marines where sent to the hive I gave each of them a pack of mines. here comes the interesting stuff guys so listen up: they planted their mines between the hive and the TF. one of them built it and the other one guarded. Now the guarding one hadn´t to empty one clip cause 2 skulks and 1 lerk were killed by the mines. by that time the TF was allready up and 2 Turrets protected it. PG was also there. hive went down some 2-3 mins later. none of the two rines died while they built/sieged the hive.
Yeah thats it. Im sure you know about the use of mines but I never used them while I planned to siege a hive. Its just a thread for all comms out there. well for those who never tried this tactic before. Of course I don´t know how it would work against more aliens but i guess they will run into the mines too *g*...
oh and i hope noone posted this before... if someone did...sorry
