<div class="IPBDescription">New players, new map, same ownage</div> <a href='' target='_blank'></a>

6 meg download, 26 meg demo. Its about 30-45 minutes long or so. This demo is significantly longer than the last demo. In this one, you get to watch me as comm, take 2 hives, and the double resource point on the same time. Things dont go quiet as smoothly, and more teamwork/communication is neccessary. We lost the phase gate at waste handling once, and they successfully built into sat comm. Things actually get very intense for a the aliens built outside of our main base, built into sat comm at <i>TWO</i> points in the game, successfully pentrated our main base taking out the observatory, dropped a TF in sat comm, built outside of waste handling...etc. etc. etc. The aliens put up much more of a fight this time, and it was a good evenly matched & balanced game.

Some notes...This game is using the same strat as in the previous demo i posted. Taking over 2 hives with phase gates building defense, upgrading and killing. The aliens did a great job fortifying their base and we could not pentrate their defenses with just JPs and HMGs. At the end, I finally decided to just siege their remaining hive and that was the end of that.

I hope everyone can learn more about commanding from watching this demo. What I really wanted to do was post a 1 hour game that I had as gorge on ns_caged, but the demo is 10.4 megs zipped, and my FTP wont allow me to upload anything over 10 megs. If anyone wants to host this demo, let me know and I can send it to you. It was a phenominal game...we went from 3 hives to ZERO hives in about 60 seconds. The game bounced back and forth a lot...the marines got HA and HMG's...etc etc. I really wanna post this, but I cant =( wont belive who won <!--emo&:p--><img src='' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='tounge.gif'><!--endemo-->

    to view the demo you have to watch it through halflife. put the demo in your NS folder, get into the NS console and type:

    playdemo marinebast

    sit back and watch...

    thanks sobe.dragon, i think one of the problems with marines is lack of good commanders, and demo's like this really help newbs get into it.

    Heads up:

    Waste and Sat Com are both ns_TANITH hive locations.

    Bast is the map with Engine, Refinery and Feedwater.

    Just had to bring this one up for your attention. <!--emo&;)--><img src='' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='wink.gif'><!--endemo-->

    They both come with bitching resource nodes to hold. <!--emo&:D--><img src='' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->

    Also: The skulking in the beggining game was weak at best. The battle gorging, of what I saw, was too late and they started too far back most of the time in useless areas. It was like they were trying to flood the map instead of actually try and take back areas.

    Good job though, hope you find some good marines and good aliens sometime to make a better demo <!--emo&;)--><img src='' border='0' valign='absmiddle' alt='wink.gif'><!--endemo-->
