    Can someone make a server mod than auto-ejects the commander if they research AA before we even have armor / wep 1 or phase tech?

    Flamethrower rushes can be quite effective, so that's a terrible idea.

    There are better and worse strategies, but that is highly dependent on situation. Auto-kicking players who don't follow 1-2 "cookie cutter" strats is just close-minded.

    I don't know the Fade hunting squad that repeatedly charged a single fade lobbing grenades was pretty funny. They didn't actually ever kill anything (except themselves half the time) but damn those guys were persistent.

    Also going 13-1 as a gorge is pretty fun.

    Going 18 and 0 as marine comm with 16 assists, all turret kills. (Dat tri-fecta)

    And I've got another: 50 minute game, mostly greens, at a stalemate. Marines had 2 chairs and aliens had 3 hives, everyone was max tech- during a marine push I did 2 waves of echo, 8 mature whips total, on power node in smelting. Power out followed by near immediate concede.

    Whoa. I gotta say though, it's nice not versing the same dozen people on NS2 for once (in a while).

    I was kidding about the server mod, but I do see new players jump in the chair all the time and they basically do nothing except upgrade the armory so "we can haz better guns" meanwhile I am asking them over and over to get phase gates or wep / armor upgrades.
    Also In what world is a flamethrower rush better than shotguns + armor or wep upgrades?

    There are more ground skulks and lerks of late. I even get to SG kill a lerk :-)

    You mean they weren't babbler balling everything?
    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    No, because I did that exact thing last night. Granted a few minutes later we had 10 exos walking down to pipeline hive and end the game....

    That's fine if they have map control, and want to rush jetpacks.

    a couple of sales back, i went something like 65-2 on pure turret kills. think i had the most kills that game. And I eventually stopped trying to get my team to win and left the server.

    Give a gorge a crag, shift, and whip, let him place his hydras and some clog defenses. That gorge can hold off the entire green marine team.

    Killed a harvester, and two skulks which used up my ammo. Commander would not drop me any; yes he knew how. I proceed to drop all my guns and run all the way from stability monitoring on docking to cafeteria the marine start. Skulk stays about one meter behind me the whole time. He chases me around the command chair twice until the commander comes out and kills him. Shotguns just finished so I bought a shotgun. I thought that was absolutely hilarious in the moment.

    I did tell him about wall jumping immediately after. I did see him wall jumping later that game

    Haha, the same kind of thing happened in tram. Alien comm just randomly put 2 shells in the middle of hub. I bet no one's gonna find them! ;o

    I blame the shiny map loading screens. Structures on them are just placed in aspects of eyecandiness and not tactical value :P

    I've just read on forums recently that pistol has no weight, same with axe and welder.
    Can anyone confirm that dropping your main gun and running with pistol in you hands = dropping everything and running with an axe?

    Absolutely, every time I see the structure layout on the load screen I just shake my head.

    For variety, for the lulz, because we can. It's the same concept as the entire team going gorge at game start and hydra rushing the marines. It's only something I execute if at least 75% of the team is regulars know to me, and they agree to it. Most often we pull stunts like that if we've already played a couple rounds on one map but the time isn't up, so we don't feel like having a serious game.

    There are obviously better strats for "normal" games, but knowing what they are just comes with experience.

    Was looking for an old post of mine, and found this old thread. It gave me a few good laughs so I thought it deserved necroing.

    I was hoping necroing it might bring in some new funny comments. I guess all the funny forum goers left, or rookies don't do funny things anymore.
