just incase you're interestedtoday [ReD] scrimed ecg (i think that was the name sorry if im wrong, my memory sucks). just thought id throw out what we noticed.
first off, it was run SO smoothly. we all just waited in RR until we were set, then we just dove in. we played 2 rounds of 2 maps (that is, once as each race on Eclipse and Nothing).
our first observation was that, in all 4 rounds, the Marines NEVER won(though we attributed this to the fact that:
a. ReD is terrible at marine and
b. they were really good aliens as well lol)
aside from that, it was a TON of fun. the most NS fun ive ever had, without question. everyone agreed. good times, no question.
there were a few lag problems, but nothing too terrible.
the LAST thing i noticed(and its something that no one else seemed to notice at all) was how long the 4 rounds took.
we started at 5est/2pst. we ended at 7est/4pst. and NO ONE minded. we had a blast(one of the guys, a playtester actually, wanted to keep going. lol)
im not saying that this speaks for everyone. im just saying, we played in the afternoon for 2 hours. teams were even for MOST of the time(they had a guys dropping w/ BAD lag of 1400+, and by the very end 1 or 2 people had to go). and no one seemed to mind at all. just tought someone out there might find that interesting.
NS organized play is truly what this game was meant for. im hooked already.
