    Speaking of bugs, is the bonus from upgrading to crag hive for cysts not meant to be retroactively applied unlike shade or is it a bug? I recall that there was a recent fix to the gorge tunnels hp, but I don't know if this is intended or not.

    Brought it up when the patch was released a year ago.

    Is it true focus is being removed? i played on beta balance server and saw a new upgrade that i didnt find useful. Also depressing to see focus removed as Skulk is my fav unit and after awhile 5 bites to kill gets boring.

    Also please increase gl dmg to skulk so 1 gl will kill skulk. annoying that jp/gl unit can get killed easily when defending from a skulk, especially as jetpack fuel doesnt last long.

    Press C to consume - cant say how many times i destroyed my tunnels because im trying to press c for mini map - game breaker.

    Cysts are too weak and tunnel doesnt cover enough infestation ground. Marines lock aliens by killing useless cyst, before gorge could create tunnel and grant access to rt, hive to counter marine camping.

    Marine Mg - please make old model optional skin, i really enjoyed it, sad its gone.

    Cloaking - maybe reduce alien sounds and footsteps as map control is key and everyone is rushing so staying cloaked isnt often.

    Blight (the new ability) isn't fully completed yet afaik. You are supposed to gain health info with it for you and your teammates. (Remember that health bars got removed in beta aswell)

    Focus is a kind of upgrade that is either underwhelming or overpowered. Basically if focus does 100+ damage for skulks/fades you can 1 shot marines without armor which was deemed too strong but if it does less it is too weak. So it is kind of impossible to make that a good upgrade.

    I think the old Marine MG skin (which is the ns1 rifle skin iirc) is chilling in the background for a standin model if new primary weapons get tested.... I think

    Reduce alien sounds... I don't want silence back so I would try to stay as far away as possible from any upgrades that change sound perception

    It is default to G for new (and old?) players and you can rebind it anyway.
