Heyi have never tried Hambone mode. i think it could be a lot of fun. can we try setting the server to hambone mode for combat. also if hambone mode is fun we should find a way to let the people vote it in.
Thats my 2 cents

I believe it is a mode in which you choose your upgrades every time you die. So every time you respawn you could potentially rebuild your character.
I thought this was a good idea until I tried it. I found it kind of annoying to have to reselct all my upgrades, especially annoying as an alien where you have to gest x times to get all your upgrades again.
Maybe I was doing something wrong but I thought it sucked :).
PS – for this to work we would probably need Invulnerability so that you could have a second to choose your ups when you spawn. This would add to the problem of stalemates. If there was no invulnerability, ppl would spawn with no ups and get raped :).
Having said that sure, we should give it a go one night, doubt people would like it much though. I am currently tired, but for some reason maybe having weak opponents spawning would cut down on stalemates. I guess what i'm saying is lets give it a go.
Hambone mode in its current incarnation is pretty much unplayable, for reasons that Polska mentioned. As soon as you get an onos into Marine spawn, or 2-3 high level marines in the hive, the game is over. It takes spawncamping to a whole new annoying level.

Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.
