    Coming back from no-hives to winning the game. (yea its happened to me about 3 times. Ping of death started then stopped. Once we even put up 2 hives at the same time and we immediately popped out and went fade.)

    Had one today on the [CoFR] server: it was 2v2, I was aliens we started in Gen, as our second hive was just about to go up (in vent) the Gen hive was under attack, me and my teamate were on the other side of the map, the hive was dead very fast to a HMG. Vent have went up shortly after our first hive was dead, I told our gorge to build OCs in vent, we got about 4 up when we heard that JP sound. We repeld the lone attack 2 times before the hive was dead, right when the hive died the marine was killed by an OC, the gorge put the hive back up. In the meantime I went to sewer and put up the hive undected, then headed off to Gen. by the time I was at gen Vent was over 1/2 way down and server almost 1/2 way. I put up Gen and waited.
    When the 2 hives were up we got movements, webed up vent and gen and made some defense. We were low on res towers (we had 3 I think), so my comrad went off gorge and I saved up for onos. When I was 1/2 way done evolving we lost the sewer hive...but it was too late for the marines, I stormed the marines base and there commander was really surprized...<!--emo&::onos::--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/tiny.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tiny.gif'><!--endemo-->

    It was great, both teams had fun.

    The people, and the social enviroment.
    Devs, you have actually created a game that has the impact of a strong social enviroment(usually reserved for MMORPG's) and made it into a glorious FPS/RTS. People that play on my server are not just people that I see alot. They become actually friends that I talk with and BS with in the RR on many occasions.

    My fellow clan-members also have become my friends as well. Its just a good feeling to play this game with people..yah know. Also, its a great way for me to keep in touch with my other buddies back home in Ohio.

    yes, comebacks are the sweetest thing. you always get that extra satisfaction when youre about to lose and then 10 minutes later youve wiped out the marines, either by putting up two hives at once while the marines are trying to hold down your first hive or when the marines have secured both hives and leave their base undefended and you just sneak in and destroy the ips and kill the comm before he drops another CC somewhere else. beautiful.

    Although that is extremely fun, the most fun I have ever had involved impossibly long killing sprees. There is nothing like upsetting the game balance and winning against all odds with nothing but skill.

    Noo, the best thing is when you have team of annoying n00b-style Marines bellowing down your ear to get out of the chair, because you're "Ruining OUR game!!!", only to have that incredible moment where you put out 7 HA+HMG/GL+Welder equips, and say: "Go on then, kill that hive".
    That is always funny, and shuts up all those annoying people who wouldn't comm any better themselves, and tends to win the game.

    But I really love my little skulky's parasite: <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->

    my favorite part is when the skulks totally own the rines at their own base and win and get all the bragging rights for being a l337 skulk.. its also pretty funny when one skulk starts destroying buildings with parasite... (ive seen it only happen once)

    heheh - actually my favroite game is where I comm and get to do EVERYTHING by the books.

    I.e., I tell people to get to satcom and fuel reactor and they actually do it - i polop down phase gate, followed by good ol tf and mines and once those are secure as hell slowly expand for rts, upgrade the heall out of em, load up with more goodies then they can handle and go in for the overkill victory - eheehe

    what can I say - i'm conservative <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif'><!--endemo-->

    when ur walking around together with like 4/5/6/7/x of you... ...all ready to shoot and reading each others movements

    well... ...gangrape is all I have to say as skulks <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->
    a team of 2 skulks 2 lerks and 2 fades (and a gorge) is pretty kewl

    and of course another favourite is surprising my enemy(or being surprised by the enemy),
    once on tanith we had movement and sensory, and the rines had like all the upgrades (maybe lev 2 armor), I was a fade witch cloaking and adrenaline, so what I did was stand cloacked in the middle entrance to reactor room from marine start, and whenever a rine came from one of the exits i blinked right infront of his nose (some by blinking to the high vent) scaring him to death and then slashing him to death aswell and then blinking back to the middle entrance, thats fun <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo--> the first nano second u pop infront of them, seeing their head (mouse) shake fast before he getting slashed to death <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->

    First time i played i nearly dropped a load in my pants when I saw an onos. I had been playing for about 4 hours straight, was just recently sick, and pretty tired. It was the first day so everybody was a complete noob. Man, that was great.

    I've only ever played one game with a great comeback, the marines actually managed to come back against all 3 hives, we must have killed atleast 3 oni, took maintance first, then really quickly took cc, then ec was just a matter of mopping up.

    On top of that I enjoy games when I'm commander and I send two groups of 3-4 people to the two unbuilt hives, quickly put phases down, once u have tf's up theres little the aliens can do.

    and full ammo, health, and armor.

    Holding the "line" against incoming Fades/Skulks/Lurks/etc etc with your team mates all firing like madmen into the group of incoming bugs,

    Building a line of turrets across a hall and using them as a "wall" to block the onos and fire over from,

    Ambushing Marines,

    the small sections of the game when you can litrally smoke a whole cig at base and "feel" like your all safe at base with your mates to guard you and each other, all is good

    moving togther as marines,

    watching your squad in front of you all turn tail and run as an onos comes round the corner, while one guy starts to fire as the rest leg it as fast as possible in to opposite direction,

    blocking your entire base with CCs and holding out against Onos

    random funny moments

    the bit when a marine opens a door in front of you, sweaps the area calls it clear and sudendly is taken down by a skulk hiding

    My favorite part of NS is when i join in a late game on aliens and the people are bummed out, and then they see me join their team and they are like "YEAH WE HAVE JOHN NOW WE CAN TURN THIS AROUND" or something along those lines. Its personally rewarding that me bymyself can bring confidence to a team, and its even more rewarding when we win. It definately makes me happy when I can motivate players to play better just by my presence.

    Not to imply this happens everytime I join a team, just the few times I was recognized and turn the game around.

    It the only team game (whats the term? FPRTSS? it helps to be drunk whilst saying it anyway) that ive come across that actualy requires you to work as a team and not got it alone about the map with ur AWP and Deagle.

    as its a team game you would think people would get really annoyed at n00bs coming in and being poor, but no, they just laugh and then tell u what to do next time, or they dont care at all. also they are willing to help, if you ask a question someone will answer it,

    hmm, in fact most things i like about NS, the maps, the players, the game, Comm mode, res based, originaltiy etc etc

    takes a bit of getting sued to though, especialy aliens, entirely different gameplay to other mods which is excellant and inexhaustable

    i may throw-up now, ie said too many good things in one post.

    cc towers with a phase on top and one at the bottom

    one hive gorge rushes

    welder rushes

    random re-locations mid game that serve no purpose but confusion

    biting that jp/hmg down in mid air and seeing that little bit of text apear the bottom of your screen showing his disapointment *cough*

    little moments when somone says "go lump"

    watching gorges run

    singing and shouting "BOING!" through the voice comm and the rest of the team joining in

    Happened to me once <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif'><!--endemo-->

    We were getting our **** handed over to us in a fashion plate everywhere. Then I sneaked into the base (lotsa mines tho), killed a rine that was getting ammo, charged the IPs, killed him again when he spawned, killed comm when he jumped out and laid the semi-smackdown on me, won the game.

    I was like LOL.

    Random funny moment:

    Emptied a whole gun mag into a gorge, then a pistol mag, then knived it to death while I had this skull charging me constantly. I died fast afterwards, but man that was fun <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif'><!--endemo-->

    But anyways, I always try to play aliens (rines stink booo hiss)

    There are loads of cool things, but the best is to hang on the ceiling of Viaduct hive, when I say ceiling I mean as high as you can go...

    then you see a couple of those armour clad fella's walking into the hive, building stuff, you scooch over the ceiling till ur right above em, and you hit your "duck" key....
