    327 may have some balance changes, but there will be plenty of public pt opportunity for people to play and give feedback on them before release.

    half the servers died

    that happens every single build, the server admins just haven't updated yet, give them a day or so to catch up and all will be fine :)

    There should be a confirmation box for clicking to block a server. It is too easy for a user to block a server by mistake.

    Nah it's not. It's a pretty small button and it's noticeable if you do block one.

    One step further to higher tickrates, very good
    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to play Natural Selection 2. The gameplay is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of military strategy and advanced mathematics you won't even win a single game. Theres also the game's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into the game. The maps and artwork draw heavily from Riddley Scott's Alien franchise, for instance. The players understand this stuff, they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of the game, to realise that it's not just great, that it also says something about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Natural Selection 2 truly ARE idiots. of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in the Marines' existential catchphrase "how do I get to be so good", which itself is a cryptic reference to the high degree of intelligence required to play the game as intended. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion when spectating a game. What fools... how I pity them. And, yes, by the way, i DO have a Fade tatoo. And no, you cannot see it. it's for the ladies' eyes only, and even then they have to demonstrate that they are within 50 hive skill points of my own (preferable lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid.

    I agree that it's not super easy to block a server, but once blocked the yellow sign changes to a normal white one, which looks too similar.
    Imho the blocked sign should stay yellow to make it more obvious.

    Does Quick Play prioritize servers marked as favourite?
    NO Cyril, when they're dead they're just hookers!

    I believe so
    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.
