A Few Good Marines

Last night I was playing in Coronos in space and played with a couple good marines...Rich...Night21...Youngblood did well. These were good marines who actually did listen to orders...work together and make a difference in the battle.

If you see anyone others, or if I forgot some of you that did well...I'm sorry, but if you do find more good marines...post thier names and what server they were in here. I'm going to try to stick to the same server if I can...easier to find those few good marines to fight aloing sides.

    Jeez, I've seen some good ones in my time but the only ones I've managed to remember were a pair from a game on Nothing a week back (it may be coincidence, but it was right before 1.02 came out and I started a week long streak of getting shafted on to the alien team due to excess players on the marine team). T. Ali and ChunkySalsa managed to (respectively) lead the squad and single-handedly take and hold Cargo Hive. Followed orders and displayed superior skill, everything you want in a marine.

    Bloody hard to find marines like that. That's my problem. I've seen some with mad skill, where I drop them the right gear that they need/want and they devestate whole teams. Always fun to watch. It's the one's with even basic skill like that but the ability to follow orders and lead parts of the team. Whcih I could find more...

    Had the pleasure of commanding a marine named LameRat. Followed orders to the letter. When I gave him a waypoint, he got there--and actually stayed there. When I ordered him to build something, he built it, then defended it until I gave him orders elsewhere. He was always the first to respond to my calls of "Sewer hive under attack! Take the phase gate! Wait! Ventilation Hive under attack! Take the phase gate!" etc. Needless to say he was the first marine on the team to get heavy armor and heavy machine guns, and I entrusted him with leading hive assaults. Good marine.

    You'd think something as simple as following orders would be more common... but the majority of marines on my team always seem to run off to the middle of the map by themselves and get killed while a skulk takes out the phase gates they left not fifteen seconds ago.

    Damn, I've had so many good marines that I can't remember them all. <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='smile.gif'><!--endemo-->

    A few that have stuck out in my mind though...

    Thanks Flatline. <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->

    I played with a really great commander on bast recently that had me run to the Engine Room hive <b>alone</b> in order to take out a gorge wreaking havoc in there. I guess I was doing well enough that he thought I could handle it, so I was a bit flattered; by the time I got there though he had six OCs up so I didn't take him out the first time ... got him and his toys on the second trip, though. <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->

    Not that I mean to brag. I just thought it was funny.

    Floppydisk is another. Listens well and is a pretty good gunman too.

    I think people are actually learning how to play as marines. Atleast when I command them. I can actually get people to STAY at a location and guard it. I just have to talk to them and tell them WHY they are standing there. I don't use a voicecommunication yet, but I type kinda fast, so it's usually not a problem.

    I got five straight wins in a row on NS_ECLIPSE today, much thanks to my marines who actually follow my orders!

    Sad thing is, on the Scandinavian servers (where I play) there are VERY few able commanders, most of them don't have a clue on how to expand or place turrets properly, and many don't even build phasegates!

    you can have a buddy list any really good players. Good for establishing friendly frontiersman. And better to play with people you know.

    One round on nancy, I was commanding with Rico on my team. He was cut off from our base when a gorge started making offense towers outside our spawn. The aliens thought they had us pinned in there and kept attacking while the rest of my team dealt with them. Rico went off to 2 empty hive points and built a whole lot of stuff by himself, fending off skulk attacks. Pretty soon we had 2 turreted hives with phase gates going to them. With those under our belt, we soon broke out and finished the aliens off.

    Almost the entire STD clan.

    That's all for now.

    Try playing the "Tower at Charm" server...
    I play there almost exclusively. Look for [TAKEN] (Owners of the server) players, along with [FARM] players.
    Some other good players play there too, but I often forget their names...
    I'll get the server IP up when I find it...
