    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.

    WELCOME! NS2 is by far my favorite game, and if you would like to find me on steam, I would be happy to give you any extra tips or practice (although I know this post is old), or play alongside you. Please feel free to ask questions and enjoy the game!

    Yay for more people playing NS2! When you jump in, I highly recommend doing all 4 tutorials. They are short, to the point, and decently engaging. Also check out Hive Challenge in the training section. It lets you practice Lerk and Fade in a controlled environment. Thanks to those, playing Lerk is actually fun for me now, not frustrating.

    Are you going to use an SSD? If not, I would highly recommend getting even a small, cheap SSD just to install NS2 on. It makes a world of difference when loading maps.

    Before you can seek answers, you must first know the right questions.

    Hello everyone,
    So I took a 2-3 year break after initially buying this game (too busy with college and for the fresher job at my fav Apknite company) and I used to play a decent amount of commander as marines and 1-2 games as a commander for aliens. I'm absolutely terrified of playing as commander again without a bit of practice. Is there a decent way to practice without ruining a team's chances of winning? I did one game of commander as marines and I did okay but I am scared to play as an alien commander without some practice.
