Hi all,

A couple weeks ago, a large number of Youtubers all played NS2 on build 277 (with fast loading). They are starting to post their viewpoints from the game.

    His confidence in his team amazes me. Hey guys, this location is under attack, I'm going to continue building more structures.

    Also, drifters aren't one use disposable units. :/

    So many gorges. I can't be surprised that the play was unusual and interesting. They are all rookies. I am impressed by how well TB commanded.
    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.

    From [url="https://twitter.com/Totalbiscuit/status/661244942216466432 "]Totalbiscuit's tweet[/url]
    We only played aliens, the other team hadnt practiced the alien side so it made little sense to switch

    Also the video posted is just Totalbiscuit's perspective, there will be more videos posted at the polaris channel later this week

    Darn. I can't trick rookies into using swalk mode by telling them it makes me play better.

    Watching LordMinion777 made me think; would it be possible to get killcams in this game?

    LordMinion777 actually seemed to have better aim than certain players I've seen with 2000+ hours - but he lacked the awareness; as you'd expect with any new game. Giving deathcams might help to teach new players to check that spot where the skulk was hiding last time.

    Or it might teach new players, that they can go super-fast if they do the walljumping - just like the vet that killed them 10 times over and over.

    Can't record demos so I doubt it. I imagine that would use the same code

    You can record and review them - there are some glaring bugs and limitations of course.

    Have no idea how you got these youtube guys to start playing NS2 but great work!

    Though I doubt this will garner more than a temporary spike in player numbers.

    Thanks for trying, CDT!

    Ok, here is the problem. Every game, the aliens,in a pack, harass the marines to slowdown resource captures. The aliens save up for invisible, double armor rhinos. Everyone evolves into an invisible double armor rhino. The marines lose.


    Also, a good rule of thumb is that a rookie is equivalent to an empty player slot on a team.

    Related comments below those videos are interesting. Worth a shot to help them understand how the game is and feels. Many people there are lacking information and/or providing false information (like hearsay). Amount of views is a nice thing though.
