Disclaimer: This is not meant to be a negative thread. I hope this stays a light hearted friendly giggle about some of the silly things we see greens do.

So I joined a server that has the nsl mod on it. When I load up everyone is asking why isn't the game starting. I say "it has the nsl competitive mod and each team needs to have someone say ready" and everyone proceeds to start spamming ready repeatedly. I say "STOP!!!" "Only one person from each team has to say ready." Another minute or two later I got the game started.
From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    I believe i can fly.. i believe i can be shot down by a rifle while i try to escape.. get killed by allies every day.. spread my wings and die away......

    Friendly fire on pub is frightening. i'm not brave enough to do it.

    In fact, I didn't mention it but that server had friendly fire. There were quite a few friendly kills.

    BTW, I always wanted to try and use whips as a meat shield in a push. Never did, but it should work.

    Ns2 is a beautiful game when the settings are up.

    But I need a steady framerate to shoot things. So having a framerate consistently above 100fps causes the random hitches to not be as damaging.

    I had a shotgun in The Dome and 4-5 skulks suddenly ran out of Pipe. Bad game sense on my part, even though I'm pretty confident with a shotty. They all closed in on me and I was literally boxed in, unable to strafe for a few seconds. I thought for sure I was gonna die, but spamming jump somehow led to zero damage taken and teammates saving my ass. Probably the most wtf moment I've had recently.

    Scenario 1: Teamfight ensues, everyone dies but me, left with no ammo from shooting the skulks off my teammates, a skulk turns up late for the engagement and I think 'ah what the hey' and whip out my axe. Proceed to jump all over him, I get 4 axe hits before he gets a bite on me. Axe kill! He was holding 'bite' from the moment he entered the area.

    Scenario 2: Skulk is seen skulking near base down a long corridor near spawn, he hides behind a doorway thinking I haven't seen him. I wait till I'm close to the point and pull out my axe so he hears the SHINNGG of impending doom. Jump all over that boy, he is just holding mouse1 the whole time. Axe kill!

    I played a game the other day with a rookie commander who insisted on dropping his spurs/veils/shells in the most screwed up places. The map was Docking, and by the time I joined he had at least 5 of each upgrade, only NONE of them were at a hive.

    He had upgrades placed in the hallway from departures to generator, the hallway from courtyard to locker, central access, the middle of courtyard, the passage from courtyard to maintenance, out in ball court, and even some in East wing right in front of the power node.

    We told him that he only needed 3, and it was smarter to hide them, but apparently he knew something we didn't because he just kept right on building more. It was actually pretty funny, the Marines kept finding/killing our upgrades, yet it never did anything because we always had more than 3 of each lol.

    I guess it's commander help thingy, that suggests you to put upgrades in random places with one click.
    At least it was like that before.
    So many shade hives upgraded for me without even knowing before I turned that off :)

    The other day while on Docking I was walking a rookie through marine commanding. There were maybe 7 - 8 people each team and basically everyone on my team was new. I didn't have a mic, so not only was I the one that had to run and build/kill everything but I had to stop and type explanations to the commander also. (He actually listened though which was great). Long story short, even though the aliens were also bad, 4 - 5 of their team got onos all at once about 15 or so minutes in. This is where the funny part occurred.

    The aliens had been pushing cafeteria all game and we could never get anything built in there for long (I was almost always in depatures/east wing). I went back in there after we got knocked down to only one base (terminal) thinking I could do some damage before the aliens finally grouped up and rushed terminal. Lucky me, I ran into two onos just milling about. I fired a clip into one before it got close to me and then I jumped over the counter with the food on it.

    By now, all that was between me and two onos was a few feet of (concrete? marble? plastic?). It took them both a few seconds to realize they weren't killing me and then they decided to jump over too. That's when I jumped back over the counter. This cycle repeated until one onos was dead. By this time I was out of ammo and essentially screwed, but the other onos (with full health) - scared out of his wits - just runs off into bar.

    From that point forward I was known as Stark the Onos Slayer ^:)^ and every time I showed my face, onos just fled before me.

    I think they do a great job balancing the fights. 18min lvl0 rines on one side and "I am just sitting 1m in front of you and shoot spikes in your general direction" lerks on the other side. Awesome effort :D
