yea.. as a rpg mode - great.

Yes.. Fucking GL's are awful right now. The amount of times I backstab a GL with my skulk and get like 3 free bites in, and he just 180's and instagibs me even though I'm literally up his ass...

oops wrong thread
So if I just make sure to kill myself enough, I can avoid being banned... Silly.
You do mention looking at the skill tier, but at that rate it's no different from just having a skill cap on the server.
I have a different proposal.
This might be more feasible for a NS3 perhaps, but let me pitch it anyway.
The idea is basically to introduce POWERUPS! So in Quake TDM (and other team game modes), you obviously have huge snowbal…
So to make back the investment of an RT, I need 100 ticks = 600s or 10 minutes... In other words, there's zero value in risking to build a single RT that you could potentially lose in the first 3 minutes in your scenario.
So what you'll …
If it's an option to keep it as is, I don't see why not.
However if we are reimagining controls, I'd rather have the ability activate when you press its designated key, and remove the weapon switch for aliens all together. So when I pres…
I totally understand what you want to do and why. I'm just not sure it's actually possible. All games that I know of, have early game type snowball effects.

By hive skill, do you mean elo? Either way I don't think that's a fact.
Matchmaking, probably doesn't work in small player bases. But the ELO system is pretty accurate even in small playerbases.

(Quote) Yes and yes! Learning curve? Mmmh, yes. But I don't think it's too complex. Other games have been successful while being complex. And I can list a few simple games that suffer too. NS2 does arguably have too many hidden mechanics though. …
Sure, but that isn't an illness you can cure Nintendows. Bandaid solutions aren't preferable, but when there literally isn't any other solutions, you have to resort to them.

I don't think this needs a response tbh.

A non budging graph is not unimpressive when you consider the decline of the competitive scene.
Those changes you mention cannot be blamed for that decline, because we have compmod as well as other various balance mods.

Wait, so you'd want this beam to actually be STRONGER in cqc, since it rapidfires at close-range? Balance wise this is a horrible idea. How are you supposed to counter that as alien?in Railgun replacement: Ion cannon Comment by SantaClaws July 2018
This is the sort of ill logic people use with pollingrate on mice as well.
500hz vs 1000hz is a difference of 2ms - 1ms = 1ms. Who on planet earth can utilize 1ms shorter reaction time? 1000hz is useless.

Well I want to give my two cents as well. My suggestions are more thoughts to be considered for a possible NS3 or another shooter etc. There's only so much we can really afford to mess with NS2's gunplay at this stage.
