<div class="IPBDescription">look! he's New!</div> Well ive noticed something when ive been playing.
one time i was playing on marines and i was with a group of teammates,
we all had HA and HMG's plus our commander was hella good,
but anyway, i ran out of ammo about 3 seconds b4 i heard my teammate saying the same thing.
when two fade's came around the corner, i was out of ammo with a retard behind me trying to get my armor past the 500 mark(****....) but my smart commander decided to build a auxcilery command chair on top of the fade, and for some reason, the fade died like splat. that was it.
ive seen this 6 times now, and im sure its a bug, i did it when i comm and ive seen other comms do it as a tactic.

    Yup, using exploits is the ulitmate n00bness.

    Also, dont calling people who are helping you retards is a bit harsh, especially when my problems usually start when people DONT weld me when needed.

    Chill out, Skillzilla.

    Either PM Flayra or post in the Bug forums about this. Provide details if you can.
    However, im sure they're aware of this. Better do it anyways though.

    Well, if a command chair dropped on something, why wouldn't it go splat? <!--emo&:)--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif'><!--endemo--> Also, it's an expensive way to kill one alien - if that's how the commander chooses to spend his res, why not? Comms also block doors/vents by dropping comm chairs. The way to combat it would be to limit the number of comm chairs allowed at once (maybe three at most).

    Blocking doors and lifts with chambers is also a cheap exploit. Building on aliens is okay IMO, think of it as expensive webbing marine style just as blocking doorways with comm chairs is refered to as a marine WOL. Both will probably be fixed so for the time being suffer with it just as the marines had to with the siege proof WOL in earlier versions of NS.

    Comm Chair = 30 Res

    Fade = 54 Res

    Fade gunk on your shoes = Priceless

    I've also seen a bunch of comm chairs dropped in a hive that was under assault, so it distracted all the O chambers in the room. Not fun, when you're the gorge.

    Can a fade not just blink out of the chair?
    I don't see what so bad about this. If you read the plotline to NS in the manual etc, it makes sense that marines would be able to do this, IMO.

    in response to above post: i think he meant when it hit the fade he died, also you cant blink out of stuff, or at least i haven't seen it. *edit* all the threads i've replied to today seem to go quiet o.O?*/edit*

    You can't blink out of the chair, and while you're stuck your energy also does not recharge for some reason. This means you can't even hit your way out. It's really, really cheap and lame. I had a comm who used it when we were HA/HMG versus 3 hive aliens. Stopped two onos as they were about to kill us. I left the server after that. I've also had it used on me, one when I was onos and once when I was a skulk about to kill their IP. It's really, really lame.

    gorges drop buildings to block doors, and to render phase gates useless all the time. Now while I would consider dropping a comm chair on a fade pretty cheap, I have no problems with dropping a comm chair int he middle of the hive to distract the O towers. That is THE most kickass thing I've heard lately. I mean heck, a gorge can put the hive up to distract the turrets (I've done that lots) so the marines can put up a CC to distract the O chambers!
  • ainfectainfect Join Date: 2003-02-04 Member: 13102Members distract O towers.......hes talking about killing people with it. totally different. gorges dont drop O towers ON people!

    ive done the "drop a COMM in their hive" thing too. its funny and its a distraction.

    Command Chair dropping eh? Do you think that would work on an Ono's?

    Oh man that would be priceless! Come 1st, Flayra will let 1 in 5 med packs or ammo packs dropped by the commander be a cartoon style 2000 kg Anvil. SLAM!

    Haven't laughed out load at a post in a while, thats a wonderful mental image!
    Now I can move on in my life! Night all!
  • PaqPaq Join Date: 2002-12-15 Member: 10876Members
    Heh. I haven't ever seen that someone has killed an alien with CC.
    But few times i have dropped a phase gate on top of an onos and few times i have managed to stuck a skulk with sentry.

    I think that dropping a CC on top of a fade is bit difficult, if that fade is moving.....and if you miss.....well that's 30rp <!--emo&;)--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif'><!--endemo-->

    if the server has /stuck or /unstuck this tactis is useless.
  • Canadianmonk3yCanadianmonk3y Join Date: 2002-11-13 Member: 8465Members
    It takes some serious skill with the mouse and a good estimation of your own ping to drop a CC on a moving alien. I have personally only pulled it off in one game where one skulk was eating all my 'rines and he really needed to die.

    The CCs do not kill the alien directly, but it is like dropping a turret on a fellow marine. They cannot move anymore and they do not recharge their energy. It has an extremely limited use of situations, and is usually a pointless waste of resources.

    One time we put on sv_cheats on the server, and I had to laugh at myself making igloos of CCs on and around all the aliens... It was amusing for everyone for a bit, leading to many skulks frantically trying to escape from their hives without getting pinned.
