Map intel isn't going to help you when you're getting back to an engagement zone from a hive room or across the map and arriving on 40-50% energy. Sure you can stop and use metab, but in those 5-10 seconds you might be regaining yo…Still waiting for any kind of buff for fades - the latest hmg buffs make it even more punishing for them. The issue started when the bhop momentum 'bug' (b298 change) was removed, limiting vertical momentum. Since then, Fades sit on 40-50% energy go…Which dev is currently in charge of balance changes for future patches ?

This is difficult to answer without doing a proper discovery process. For retention problems, it could be anything from interface interaction (think main menu, health bars/energy etc) to user journeys ( eg is evolving as an alien a…in Player retention/New Players Comment by bonage July 2017It doesn't work because:

I'm a UX designer and the points you make are mostly correct, however there are a few things in there which should be cleared up. Good UX design does not work off of designer assumptions and initial bias - in fact it is the opposit…in Player retention/New Players Comment by bonage July 2017(Quote)
It's great that you guys are still passionate about the game - it's just disappointing that the other half of UWE doesn't share that passion. There's a real disconnect between the NS2 team and the rest of the company which at the e…in QA Team Update - Natural Selection 2 Comment by bonage March 2017Congrats IH
Going to be honest though - what's the point of this exactly ? Does UWE believe NS2 has anything left in the tank to warrant an official QA position? Is there going to be a significant increase in development output or is it …in QA Team Update - Natural Selection 2 Comment by bonage March 2017(Quote)
That bit I mentioned about NS3 not being a big new game... you saw that right? Do you see the point I'm trying to make about the difference between cs:s and cs:go ?
If NS3 has the expectation of having to be a brand new…in Enter the Roadmap - Natural Selection 2 Comment by bonage August 2016Finally we see a roadmap. Kudos to UWE for finally committing to some goals.
So let's assume everything on the roadmap gets implemented. We're looking at late 2017 / 2018 before all this is completed at the earliest. This will be 6 years…in Enter the Roadmap - Natural Selection 2 Comment by bonage August 2016(Quote)

Good response @Howser - I agree with you on some of your points. I just want to look at this one in particular though. Essentially, NS2 from this point c…(Quote)
I can see your point about it being inappropriate - but it's best to consider it not as a re-release, but as a new product with solid foundations to work off of.
Regarding your desire for 'NS3' - let me ask you this - f…(Quote)
Essentially yes - sometimes, you need to end a product in order to give it the best chance of success in another form.
