Nothing says "goodbye comp scene" like some good ole pedantic drama.
You died just like you lived. Hasta la vista, baby.in R.I.P Competitive NS2 2012-2016 Comment by Spooge May 2016
I haven't logged in to play NS2 for many months but I want to comment anyway because I believe this might be an actual attempt to correct previous wrongs that have limited the advancement of the community. I won't comment on non-pub play because 1.…
Just because it has an economy doesn't mean it requires strategy. Most of the choices in this game are linear. Hence the OP.

You need to stop thinking like NS2 is an RTS. It isn't.
It's an FPS with a support class that has a top down view.in Commentary on Game Comment by Spooge January 2015
If it isn't fun, then don't play. Srsly, the whining here is rather pathetic.
Go play pugs and leave these modders and their appreciative fans alone.
Clearly there is a demand for some of these changes. Some of them will turn out…in Bandaid Mod- IT'S THE NATURAL SOLUTION TOO! Comment by Spooge June 2014
It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that there's a difference in skills that's creating a gap. There are some players who enjoy spending their time tweaking their keybindings, mouse settings, graphics settings, and then taking the time to hone the…in Pub Stompers Comment by Spooge May 2014
I want to be as constructive in my criticism as I can. Apologies if offense is taken.
If you're seriously pondering if an adjustment needs to be made in how UWE interfaces with its community, your problems are larger than you think.
in 27 Days Later Comment by Spooge April 2014A trailer? So....it's a countdown to the release of a trailer for something that will be released "soon"?
in 27 Days Later Comment by Spooge April 2014Alpha Centauri was the first boxed PC game I purchased. Never tried a Civilization game but I might get into this.
It sounds like they even used the same voice actress from AC!in Civ: Beyond Earth - Alpha Centauri 2?! GET HYPE Comment by Spooge April 2014The only reference I know of for Drop Bears is from the Infinity Wars digital trading card game.
No idea if it's related but it'd be pretty cool if UWE were in the queue fo…in What is releasing in 27 days? Speculation thread Comment by Spooge March 2014(Quote)
Cuz it's supar secr4t!!!111
People inside this community, for the most part, know that a Gather is a place for players to sample competitive-like NS2 play.
People outside the community who try the game will learn that Gather is the place where you go …I agree with the notion that NS2 is a great game but not as great as NS1.
Some of that might be nostalgia, I'll admit. In my opinion the thing that made NS1 so much better was the great focus on battling for map real estate. That confl…in bottom line after 11 years of playing NS Comment by Spooge January 2014Honestly, I typically forget to use mucous membrane and rupture seems to be highly situational. I probably use enzyme the most since most pub games are Shift first rather than Crag. Bone wall gets used some but by that point most of the attention …in What are the pub alien comms doing?

Seems this is a thread for the old school. We should be using the old school jokes.
Mostly this thread could use a little MonsE and Nem0 but I suppose that's not likely to happen.
Anyways, yep, still here.<…in 11 years passed... seriously!? Comment by Spooge January 2014Bump:
The IW team is just waiting on Valve to officially show up on Steam. Should be any day now so if you want to get in before the rush, send me a PM for an early beta access code.
New cards are being introduced in the next few …in Infinity Wars TCG Comment by Spooge December 2013I haven't looked through the wiki in a while so I don't know if it's in there but the most useful piece of information I ever received to improve my commanding was understanding the default keybinding:
Q W E R for top level menus
…Is there an existing document or link that covers the referee responsibilities and qualifications?
Can you give some insight around what might be expected of a referee (ie how much of a time investment might be needed)?
in Help Wanted: Referees Needed For the NS2WC Comment by Spooge December 2013So, just logged off what started as a pretty good night. Alien commed a full team of greens to victory after a well fought match. The marines were mostly green also and had some trouble holding locations. Overall good times.
in Humble Bundle. NS2 for 1$. Comment by Spooge December 2013As a sideline spectator with absolutely no horse in this race, I have to suggest Eissfeldt's proponents please stop using the "no true Scotsman" defense. It ruins credibility.

Currently leaning toward the PS4 but probably won't make the leap till after the holidays.
in Ps4 Comment by Spooge November 2013The Twitter is vile. Fact.
And, yes, I will always refer to it as The Twitter. Because it's vile.
Also, isn't The Twitter an inherently unsecure place to be sharing Supor Secrat info? I mean, isn't it designed to have it's…Respect.in NS2WC 90%+ Funded! - Natural Selection 2 Comment by Spooge November 2013Was just trolled with a GT in Chasm near the upper vent that leads toward Turbine.
There's some walkway above the power node in Containment that's virtually unreachable also.in Refinery & gorge tunnels Comment by Spooge October 2013Oh the irony: the same team stacking pub stompers who complain that they are forced to play in rookie servers due to a lack of player population are one of the core reasons that new players don't stick around.

I find myself commanding quite a bit lately simply because nobody else will. I enjoy it most of the time as I'm not super duper in the field and it offers another way to contribute.

Any chance that technology would be useful (ie NSL maps with predetermined camera locations)?in Competitive Gamming.... Comment by Spooge September 2013At least your icon showed up. My constie icon has been MIA since the new forums were installed.
I'm not the only one either.

This, along with dealing with underpopulated servers, is where Combat came from. Some people wanted a stripped down PewPewPew with NS elements that could be completed in less than 15mins.
