Or obviously stating..After 2.0 this game lost its chance to be great, a backup mode to attract people, "Combat" has more fun than regular NS mode (why I started playing back 2 years ago) The main dev pays little to no attention to it anymore, and if he does he sure isn't letting everyone know. Balance in NS mode is down the toilet, they nullified the veterans group (skilled CAL players who made suggestions and worked 1on1 with flayra for balance)
After all this the mod is doomed. Instead of fixing key gameplay issues they simply add more cosmetic crap that nobody needs or even wants. A shame this used to be such a fun mod. I hope it does not make the cross to Hl2 unless things are completely redone- properly.
This is NOT meant to be a personal attack, and its merely an observation. I can understand Flayra working on his own business, but I've seen I think *one* on these boards in the past 2 months. Forlorn mentioned also in the newest announcement thread that
|The truth is "The community" consists of a few individuals who have real say on who gets into the program, the lead picker with 90% of the decision being Nem0.|
If PT's were made through other means we'd see more (qualified) playtesters in the field. Currently they are picked on arbitrary values such as "niceness" or "coolness".
A sad but real problem. The veteran program wasn't not working, it was poor execution and PT lead's faults for being unorganized. Now without the veteran group you have unskilled, inexperienced in a clan setting, people balancing the game, I think thats a problem.
Comment as you may but don't try contradicting the obvious, it will only make you look like an ****.
