  • Goodbye forever

    Is what I say to your command chair when I open a tunnel in your base.

    bind space chuckle

    But seriously guys observatories are defensive structures and they're only 10 res. They should be placed liberally. I see a lot of rounds where marines have only one observatory, to get the necessary upgrades and scan and beacon. Or one per tech point. I contend they should be -everywhere-, at both corners of the same room, and anywhere you want held.

    It's more expensive on paper, and you'll say "Well that cash could go into other, more useful tech" but my anecdotal experience is that there is a direct correlation between placing forward observatories and saving money on medpacks and lost structures and resource towers due to unblocked lanes.

    If an observatory in System Waypointing facilitates the prevented destruction of Skylights and Overlook for just 1 additional minute, it's already paid for itself. It's a money maker.

    Plus it's impossible to be unable to beacon to base. Every time a commander says "I can't beacon, they killed my [one-and-only] observatory" I cringe.

    Can I please get a custom skulk skin that is just a corgi.

          Indeed. I thought we lost another regular. Personally, TGNS is the single reason why I still bother with this game. Playing anywhere else, which unfortunately I'm forced to during day games, is way too frustrating.

            What an applicable quote to this conversation. Does this mean we can blame Lincoln for the acronym LOL?

                        I agree, a few observatories can make keeping control of the map as a marine a lot easier. Yes if marines are covering all lanes and liberally communicating information from each of their viewpoints strategically you should be covered, but the observatories make it so the minimap and overall map are that much more useful.
