    for combat, i like the skulk with leap.

    then i go to fade and then if i can, i go to stomp-onos. WOOT!

    stomp onos totally pwns combat. (especially with upgrades.)

    the lerk for classic cos onos costs too much for my kind of gameplay.....
    the geurilla tactics for the lerk are pretty fun. if i can get the whole team to go fades (only happened once) then that is the funnest form.

    Oh my gosh. That's like predator mode but... on acid. That is SO cool looking. We have to figure out a way to put that in there!

    ... That is just badass.

    It's become a habit of mine to stay skulk or gorges during whole games. People make such a fuss about who's lerking/fading that I don't even bother saving up because someone will end up neglecting his skulk and gorge duties. So why waste a game to go fade when you can have fun as a skulk and win?
    I guess that I just enjoy skulking, gives yourself a challenge when faced against heavy odds, and I guess that, even if the score might not always show it, I know that I'm more often then not more valuable than some random fade who might have never died, but didn't do ish except occasionnal hit and run while I built RT's, took down enemy RT's and rooted out a ninja siege attempt. Not to mention how proud you feel when you single-handedly take down key locations or solo a small group of marines.

    I very rarely go lerk, even more rarely fade and nearly never go Onos, and I only go into these forms when I'm ######. (You won't like it when I'm ######)

    I only go marines so I can use my pistol hopping scripts.

    I greatly prefer marine... but I'd have to say the Onos would be my favorite... if I didn't like gorging so much.

    I loath Skulk... and I'm not good at controlling Lerks... (They're the bane of my Marine existance though... Worse than even Ninja fades...) Fade... I've not played enough, so I rarely get my Hit and runs right...

    Why do you loathe the skulk? It's easily the most fun and challenging class to play in my opinion. I'm just interested in hearing your reasons.

    Mostly, because I hate being so fragile. I realise that's the state of being for most of the alien team and the majority of marines...

    But I find myself in the middle of a hallway more often than not, even when I'm trying to stay near cover. I like sneaking up on people, and heck they're rewarding kills, but more often than not I find I'm noticed when I'm too far to do anything about it.

    Though taunting the marines that they taste of baby is always fun...

    I usually try to stay fattie, which was easier back when... I found much more fun helping my team get what they needed, instead of getting shot up and feeding the marine team.

    1.04 gorges
    followed by gorges
    then skulks/lerks
    and then onos/fade

    I like them all, but when asked to prioritize

    I'm not a very good alien player, but I found playing as a cloaked Fade the most fun to be had in a multiplayer game since some guy invented competetive orgies.

    Well...
    1. Onos. I'm not that good btu damn, I'm having a fun time with this one! Devouring is so much fun ^_^
    2. Fade. This form is that "I'm getting serious", I do enjoy being fade but it isn't as much fun as being onos.
    3. Skulk. Depends, a lot. When marines are getting jp or ha, you really don't want to be skulk.
    4. Gorge. Sometimes it's just fun not to be in frontline.
    5. Lerk. I just can't handle these flying *******s. I just suck too much =P

    Your forgetting to add why you like them

    1. lerk.gif
    One thing that I love more than anything else is speed. With the lerk I can get major speed constantly and since it can fly I can go anywhere I please. This is also the reason I like co_spacefall_b12 so much.

    2. tiny.gif
    Right after speed, I like power. Here's a quote that I heard a long time ago:

    QUOTE

    An onos is basicly a tank with legs


    And it's always fun to eat marines.

    3. fade.gif
    A mix of my two favorite things, speed and power.

    4. skulk.gif
    Climb on walls and sneak around to ninja the marines to death.

    5. pudgy.gif
    Not enough action for my tastes, which is why I usually don't become a gorge unless I have to.

    fades of course. Theres a few reasons for this...
    1) they own
    2) they have claws the size of machetes instead of hands
    3) they look most like the aliens from "alien"
    4) they make cool noises when they kill things
    5) they make cool noises when they die lol.

    1. pudgy.gif (I like building stuff -- especially knowing what I build actually does a great deal for winning the game)
    2. lerk.gif (changes in version 3 to lerk flight made me like the lerk finally)
    3. fade.gif (who doesn't like this class?)
    4. skulk.gif (except when I have xenocide, then it's my #2)
    5. tiny.gif (meh, not at all as scary as it used to be)

    PS: People today are amazingly good at fade. Each year it seems the learning curve to match or beat jumps up tenfold.
    Coined the qualitative attribute entropy in reference to game maps.

    yes agree about the above comment about the onos. back in the 1.04 and 2.0 days it was much harder to kill onos... these are my memories, feel free to disagree. now the onos has taken on a sort of need to hit and run. now the marine reaction is lees often "oh #$%^ an onos!! we're #$^%ed now!!" and more often "Yay a big fat onos! wat an easy target" lol. Im not saying they r useless, far from it, more often tan not an onos or 2 indicates that aliens are in a good position to win. But if the rine team has a few hmgs they do not have to fear an onos nearly as much as they used to. Like personally i find it a lot easier to rack up a huge score with a fade than an onos.

    Im not really suggesting it should be changed... its pretty fair how it is. But back when the onos deservedly cost 100 res i remember some epic HA vs oni battles.

    1) Lerk - I like lerking since I don't have to skulk much, skulks are too weak. I also like marines that can't aim like MrMakaveli and don't even bother shooting me in the air.
    2) Focus Fade - Strongest alien class, stronger than onos.
    3) TEH ALIEN COMMANDER - RUSH MARINE START GOGOGO

    Heheh... I've got no chance learning how to play Kharaa "properly", I simply do my own thing and have a blast while doing it tounge.gif

    I'll definitely have to stick around and lap up the tidbits of NS2 information that'll no doubt appear eventually...

    2. pudgy.gif stealing kills from skulks rocks too
    3. pudgy.gif so does baiting marines for skulks
    4. pudgy.gif spitting mines and finishing off marines with spit is the epitome of skilled ns
    5. pudgy.gif oh, and i suck at skulking these days
    <DOOManiac> my main thing about clans is they never seem to actually have fun when playing
    <DOOManiac> even if they're winning they are so caught up in the seriousness of the situation they don't have fun. its like work. where's the fun in that?

    You don't need to swich to another attack for movement, (cough, fade.gif , cough). You have a long ranged attack that you don't even need to be there for it to work. Umbra... well I'm a gasser, but when I see heavies or gorges, I guess I'll use this. Primals good on them RTs!
