Pushed straight through club and just won the game at 4 minutes, outstanding shooting.

If you guys aren't watching the big game load up quick it's round 5 on veil o.o

    surely that is a bad thing if a team can win a round on shooting only.

    The stream is a travesty. Right now they are showing Hugh get made up. Someone please explain what has happened so far!

    Wasabi one had godmode enabled for the exo/onos fight, which makes me think this is staged. Maybe if Archaea hadn't egg-locked, the stream wouldn't be forced to fill so much downtime...

    maybe they were gonna do it either way, i mean why else would they have so much make up

    This is ridiculous, now I remember why I don't usually watch these shows live. I can understand the players need a break, but why exactly do they take a break 30+ minute break after a 3 minute game? (when there was another 30 minute break right before...)

    Also, godar would've been a much better match for Arc imo. They're the only team that come remotely close.

    Arc won 5-0. Didn't see that coming, LOL. Wasn't even remotely close, but then again nxzl did get there on a coinflip.

    Outside of the games the cast is really painful to watch.

    Wonder how it would have played out on the balance test version ;p

    Same here, I really wish some of the less harsh features would have made it into the game, then the matches might have been a bit less one-sided.
    Such as
    -Egg Hatch moved from Shift to Hive
    -Shade Ink fix
    -Unleashed khammander
    -Faster infestation receding
    -Improved Skulk movement, so they stand a chance against marines
    -Flamethrower improvements
    -Rupture ability
    -More starting res
    -More expensive RTs

    Suggestions:
    Tech Path of Hive actually upgrades the Hive itself
    Give Gorges telepathic control over their Bait Ball for Overlord-style commanding of Babblers

    And please allow to turn rooms into emergency-lit or dark versions if infestations grows over an unbuilt or damaged power node socket.

    Faster slulk movement is just going to ruin balance for pubs - some other things are great but the skulk movement is one that needs to stay safely where it is.

    The filler was pretty painful at points. I wish we could've at least gotten more interviews with the players during that time.

    Also, 20 internets to whoever can point me to the Gorge Washington picture.

    Then this strange moderator. Instead of using the great opportunity to interview Charlie and get a hands-on with the brains behind NS, maybe delve into the creation of NS1&NS2, maybe asking him about his inspirations or films, art and games he had in mind when making the mod or the sequel and the foundation of his own "AAA indie" (?) company [first time I heard that], that moderator guy just lets Hugh clown away the awkward silence... [yes, talking about the Railgun re-enactment scene]
    I had to cover my eyes because it felt so forced and un-funny.

    I think the stream was overall was great and entertaining to watch. Given to the fact that these aren't some big televised things made by media pros. I enjoyed it really.
    Hugh did a great job bringing up some silly stuff at the down time, but he should have let Charlie talk at the interview. "Hugh, you're fired."

    Because it was a scheduled 4 hour broadcast and they had to fit in 5-9 games each lasting anywhere from 1 to 45 minutes.

    Then there is this strange "social media expert"... what is her connection with NS2? Does she even care about the game? I mean: at all? Or is she just there to hold up the prizes? It's obvious that the studio audience consists of at least 97.5%+ males (I spotted a female bartender, but that's it). I guess that just lies in the nature of a Sci-Fi military FPS+RTS hybrid...
    Still, there are some female players out there. They are pretty rare, but they exist. Why not invite one of them to comment or moderate? Someone who genuinely CARES and LIKES this game. Heck, it's all taking place in Germany. Why not some Germans? They probably wouldn't be that photogenic, but authentic love for something easily makes up for sterile, uninvolved beauty.

    ESL Employee. Probably comes with the package, and social media is big today, you've no choice but to accept that. Also regarding Kaelaris, he seem to know a bit about the game (enough) and is big within SC2 and I welcome any publicity this game gets, it needs it.

    I sort of wanted in deph interviews with the players themselves and maybe even with Charlie on the future direction of the game when their breaks were being taken and there needed to be filler for the downtime. I also thought there was going to be a decent Q&A with Hugh but it just went directly into pop tarts after a question.

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to play Natural Selection 2. The gameplay is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of military strategy and advanced mathematics you won't even win a single game. Theres also the game's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into the game. The maps and artwork draw heavily from Riddley Scott's Alien franchise, for instance. The players understand this stuff, they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of the game, to realise that it's not just great, that it also says something about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Natural Selection 2 truly ARE idiots. of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in the Marines' existential catchphrase "how do I get to be so good", which itself is a cryptic reference to the high degree of intelligence required to play the game as intended. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion when spectating a game. What fools... how I pity them. And, yes, by the way, i DO have a Fade tatoo. And no, you cannot see it. it's for the ladies' eyes only, and even then they have to demonstrate that they are within 50 hive skill points of my own (preferable lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid.

    When aim is king it makes the rest of the game a tad dull, there are some rts parts in there I'm sure. Even a 6 pool takes more time :D
