    Hm..update changes sound good on paper. Played a few minutes ..quit again. Sorry ..it's just not fun to play with that performance. FPS going from 25 to 75 the whole time ... this choppiness sucks hard. I know u are a small dev team and everything ..but cmon.

    Performance on Biodome seems to be a lot worse than on other maps at the moment. Still needs optimization, I guess.
    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.

    I really like the Reinforcement Program. I think it would be better if there were more tiers - the jump from $75 to $333 is kind of big, and the jump from $333 to $1,500,000,000 or whatever is huge. But I don't know a lot about the economics of Kickstarter-esque stuff so I might be totally wrong.

    I'd buy into Reinforcement right now but I kind of don't want one of those badges showing that I'm spending more money than I should spend on a video game. It would be nice to buy it incognito.
    You still can take the first tier.
    In NS1, no matter which class you are, you can feel really powerful and a threat to anyone, while being greatly threatened by anyone at the same time.
    In NS2, you just feel crappy against nearly everything, but at the same time, you feel as much crappy when the roles are reversed.

    This is what fun is about, feeling as an asset to the game, and feeling that you can change something.

    It's BADASS isn't it? :D but don't forget about the other rewards, just take a look at the Elite Assault marine! It will be fun to watch competetive matches with those skins.

    ****Big issue**** (prob mentioned before)

    Bullets shoots well above the actual crosshair now!
    As nearly outside the default LMG circle crosshair

    Yes this is just an issue with the female marines, and should be fixed in the next hotfix update.

    I can't believe how well the reinforced donation installment is doing. A lot of people are supporting UWE for the immense work they do.

    Oh looks like I donated as well :>

    Onos disappeared amazingly fast. I also ended up accidentally buying two Shadows... due to google wallet being a failure. Will just have to gift one to a friend lol.

    $333 onos sold while I was sleeping.

    I hope some tiers appear between $75 and $333, and $333 and $8000. Such a massive jump.
    Oh well, shadow bought! Seriously deserved.

    Disappointed that the Onos tier sold out before I even knew it existed. Settled for buying shadow tier and more steam copies to give away.

    I am frustrated with the current patch and the direction of development, but I still love UWE and I've spent a ridiculous number of hours playing this hot mess.

    Plus, I figure things won't get better unless we continue to give our support. So, there you go.

    Any tier with a gorge plushy, of course. I think you guys should put in more onos, only 25 is really low for your ultimate goal of 550000$

    By the way, what does that goal signify? some new feature? continued ns2 development?

    @AceDude - I think some obvious tiers would be related to the alien life forms, other than the skulk. Shadow Gorge, Shadow Lerk, Shadow Fade, Shadow Onos... and perhaps Elite Command Station and Elite Hive, so other players know what a bada$$ commander you are. :)

    Yep, did that. Tried entering my forum handle the first time, which I think it didn't like. Changed it to my associated email address, still nothing.

    Did the devs code anything to slow down/prevent stacking?

    I see it's free weekend. I'm predicting without some form of anti-team stacking that this promotion will have the same effect on player populations as the last ones.

    There is no hard coded system to prevent this outside of the normal voting and server moderation tools being properly utilized by players and admins to make sure the game stays fun for everyone. However, we should see the problem of new players getting repeatedly kicked after loading on reserved slot servers disappear as the new reserved slot system is already in place as of 252.

    As always, veteran members of the NS2 community should do their best to be patient with the newbies as they learn the ropes. It's a tricky game with a lot of different game systems going on and a lot of complexity to learn.

    Then sadly, this free weekend is going to fail. I think I'm going to stay out of it. I don't want to see ANOTHER round of veterans pub stomping. Ultimately I feel that is the #1 deterrent to retention. When veterans are getting outrageous K:D scores, it just ensures that new players don't stay. We've already seen this repetitively. Until UWE does something about this, the game is destined to die quickly. I guess we're in store for another round of 70:1 KD on pub stomping.

    I totally agree with you on trying to help new players. But it doesn't take many veterans out to stroke their egos to ruin the game for many players.

    Darn, it's already happening:

    From the Steam Forum:

    "didnt happen to me but ultimately i didnt find the gameplay to be all that fun, would be nice to have some servers with nothing but weekenders cause the regular players just destroy us"

    Let the pub stomping weekend begin....and keep the game on the player decline. What a mess.
