    i also am helping organise this team tho i have more concerns then the rest.
    wat i want to know is wat kinda rules do u play by...

    every regions has their own unquie rules etc. like how will the winner be decided in the match... how long a round should last for... overall win conditions... wat you class as exploits etc

    our community is like my nsradio playlist.. its small but mighty!

    Ah but wouldn't that make them have like a bajillion gorges to 1 marine?

    And would their marines bugger their gorges?

    I think it's kinda pointless to play 1.04 as marines have such an overpowering advantage. But hey, good luck to you...may the fastest marine team win.

    There isn't a teamUK. (Well, actually last time i looked a few people were talking about organising one, but afaik nothing has happened yet: #uk.ns).

    The UK and European clans can all be found on Quakenet, although there isnt really a central community channel. Clans idle in eachothers public chans, and certain channels house small segments of the community. Such as #byns, #warservers or #naturalselection.

    An orginized alien team.. that can successfully do group rush's will always have a chance however slight to win.

    ps: Omc... Brad put me on the alien team as well sad.gif.

    Most of the swedish community hangs out at #ns.gather.se on Quakenet. At least there's people to ask for directions, if you cant find the one you're looking for.

    [Edit] Remember we're not in the same timezone as you are, check 6-8 hours later than you'd do otherwise or you would probably find the channels a bit empty.

    Regarding having an Alien team and a Marine team, what is it with americans insistence on 2 teams to play any game? Do you have a special team too?

    Goodluck to the NZ team. I truly believe they have what it takes to beat the US team

    you guys are telling me its going to be hard for an alien team to win a match?

    We, by this i mean the good lads from .co.za, must play ns totally backward to you guys because there has been only one marine victory in the clan matches that have been played so far.

    Alien strat goes something like this:

    1 gorge, rest skulks. While fatty gets 2 rt's (making it 3 with the starting one) skulks keep marines confined and down to base res + maybe one other. lvl 3 cara goes up and the game is pretty much over shortly after that. Marines dont have the manpower to hold thier points on the map and skulks havent done there job if the commander has had enough res to now dish out toys. an early hive storm is easily countered unless your skulks are steriod abusing muscle heads who think they can chew off the barrel of a shotgun before a marine can fire it.

    Some games have a make or break period of about 2 minutes but it rarely goes the marines way.

    Now how is this so differnt to what you do, so that your aliens have a hard time tasting victory?

    well good luck capping 2 RT's against the american marines. I play with some of those guys like every other day. They won't let aliens cap that much res. It only takes 9 bullets to kill a skulk with no cara (or is it 8?) with lvl 0 guns.

    Basically you gotta drop D's right away, or cap 1 res then 3 D's. Or you'll get slaughtered and your gorge will die.

    Well id say that the majority of the games I play marines win because of early power over no Cara skulks

    So either
    1) Marines are noobie confused.gif
    2) Playing way to defensively wow.gif
    3) Lack of tactics /upgrades mad.gif
    4) Aliens have OGC:D skulk.gif

    I am the US server op for this match, and I'll record some pwnage demos (hopefully) And I'm glad to see GluE get on the team. GluE = pwnage smile.gif (And he's also not in a top 5 team, which is good to see that they are expanding their view on who they should play in the matches)

    NZ sux thx (<3 Twink) biggrin.gif

    Yes and it takes 2 bites to kill a marines? I dont get your point. If your telling me its impossible to kill marines then I will say, using casino++'s own words, your aliens are noobie confused.gif

    From the the team list I gather its a 6 vs 6 match. If im wrong here then this next point should be ignored. With 5 foot soldiers marines can not cover spawn, place and defend rt's and hunt the gorge. And do this all in the time it will take the gorge to get 2 rt's. Unless as i have already stated your skulks arnt doing thier job.

    The skulk is alot weaker at the start of a game then a marine. But the way the game is designed the balance is in other things. Such as each alien knowing where their teamates are and being instantly alerted to a structure being under attack.

    in short, skulks can kill marines, and should be able to contain them without too much trouble. unless ofcourse, again using casino++'s own words, Marines have OGC:D skulk.gif


    but yeah this is just how I see it. maybe I am a total noob and there is not a good gamer in our whole country. Its kinda hard to game on the floor of a mud hut anyways.
