starting extractor has limited resources

<div class="IPBDescription">to help end the game</div>With the resources being unlimited in NS2 it means that marines can last a very long time before the alien team all decide to go 12 onos and stampede them, but this takes quite a long time (in a pub game to organise and save the res etc).

So I think it would help if that perhaps on some kind reasonable condition (like when aliens get 3 hives and marines have only their starting res tower) The extractor in marine spawn stops giving out resources after say 1 minute.

Even more extreme could be that the powernode gives a 2-3 minute countdown before shutdown of power. (if some more harsh conditions are met - e.g. aliens have captured all resource towers except for marine spawn).

so basically if the marines don't push out they run out of res and power.

    I get what you are saying but if the devs would implement that then that would be one step away from just automaticaly ending the game when one side gets a large advantage over the other.

    I would like to see some strategy to turn a game around so the side with the advantage can't relax and the losing side doesn't just vote concede or recycle or beg the other side to end it already.

    Even more annoying would be if every game ended with Skulks versus Marines, which is what would happen in long, limited-resource games.
