    Build 250 is out and it's great, what issues are you having that you'd need to revert? If it's for a mod to be updated try and contact the mod dev on the workshop page. I'd disable any mods that aren't working for the time being until you see that they're updated

    I think he is asking if there will be servers running build 249(no balance) or a mod that will revert to 249. Which it is possible. I might know 1 that will consider it.

    If you check in your NS2 folder all older builds are archived in a folder called "builds". You can set it up as a mod and upload it to the steam workshop. Should you choose to do this please properly set up your mod so it has a game tag that differentiates it from a 250 server so you don't have people mistakenly join who are looking for another experience and so people who want to play this version can easily find it in the server browser.

    You can find information on setting up mods here: http://forums.unknownworlds.com/categories/modding

    Sure it's possible. You may as well let it go though, the demand for that won't last long, especially as more future patches build off of 250.

    Ah, I don't see the point of going back to 249; 250 is superior tenfold.

    In your opinion. It's not a fact.

    Oh, that's so nice and vague of you. I guess better game mechanics, matches that now give a feeling of not knowing who is really winning and having major comebacks a possibility now is totally not fun.

    Don't forget the extra team welding, and the fact that people are now constantly carrying welders to save structures.. ohh and don't forget the improved alien movement, the one where you hold W and press spacebar along a wall to gain speed easier.. oh oh and don't forget the fade, jump and tap blink then keep hitting jump.. it's so complex and difficult to gain high speeds now!!! God forbid the fade was left at a high skill floor so that it was only being utilized as a walker-fade in public play, and don't forget the fan favorite forever-fades... coming soon to a tram near you!

    Ah.. and how could I forget, aliens scaling better late game with biomass; And the ability to make specific structures without a hive requirement..

    Yeah there are issues that will be smoothed out along the time, but this mod plays out better than any version of natural selection 2 we've had even though currently it's favoring pretty heavy on the alien side.

    If this is the reason for you to quit, "It's not fun" then as we say at work, "Have a nice day."

    Yep, if you watch reddogs visit to UWE you see Flayra and he was testing a "prototype" for their next game

    I found build 249 fun, i dont find build 250 fun. That is my reasoning for wanting to play build 249.

    You sure went on the defensive fast.

    BTW you can find the server by filtering by NS2249 in server browser.

    Build 250 is fantastic. I'm enjoying NS2 even more now and it makes me want to play the game again.

    I never understood why some people dislikes the new changes. It brings me does about those who are negative are does who haven't played enough NS2. When being an old veteran or an experience player, you'll be aware of the balance issues that was before build 250 and now it's finally fixed.
    The abbreviation for Old Ass Gamers is OAG. OAG is something more then just a word, it makes us gamers understand the passion. The passion that you never want to stop playing video games. That age is just a myth and not even age will stop us.

    The point isnt that there are positives, its that they come with a truckload of negatives. BT fixed many problems but it wasnt worth the silly things that didnt need to be sacraficed that were.

    Strange that you've yet to list those negatives/problems, you had plenty of time to voice your opinions while BT was occurring; a good 3 months maybe even more. It's like being asked to go in to replace your point guard in basketball, but telling the coach you'd rather sit on the bench and watch

    And hey that's what you did

    Lay off geez. If someone wants to play an older version of the game why do you care. So what if he makes, what is in your opinion of an invalid argument. This is another problem build 250 brings, everyone has to bitch at each other for not agreeing with them. People are entitled to their opinions. 8-|

    People need to chill out in this thread. People who want to play 249 should be able to play it, and those who enjoy 250 should be able to enjoy it in peace. No need for pointless squabbling over which patch is "better."

    They can play whichever version they desire, they just replied to my "opinion" in what I found hostile even though text you can see it's hostile
