    There will be a 3.2 beta2 release soon, and this should be the final beta. I wouldn't expect to see 3.2 go to full public release until mid January at the earliest. If you find 3.2 unsuitable for your league, you should consider using 3.1 for now.
    mmmmmm delicious.

          Hey everyone.. I just came back from a long hiatus. I'm planning to stay until the break is over - ~2 weeks :)

          I'm lost. I see 3.1x and 3.2-beta1. Is the latter only available to Constellation members? I don't see any links to download it. And the 3.13 TGNS server is empty, whereas the 3.2 is completely full; that leads me to think that 3.2 is more popular. So where do you get it?

          I sound like such a noob, I know :)

            Yeah I had to re-download it and there is no easy way to find it on the NS site. Although you can download it here.

                It's in the annoucements forum but the news link is gone. The download links need to be updated under the files section. Almost forgot, here's the changelog if you're interested:

                Also don't forget to watch the NS2 movie:

                        Wow. The changes are going to put aliens back on the board. Without nerfing rines too badly.
                        -FF on the hive is back. No more yelling "push E on the hive!!!!!!!!!"
                        -Onos got a 250HP boost
                        -Each entity can only be healed by one dc per tick, which i think is a bad idea because it takes away the whole idea of having multiple DCs to heal the hive.
                        -Hive 3 gives the armor bonus! (CHEERS!)
                        Get the mirrors ready folks, we want this quick. Wyz, if you guys need help testing amxx/mods once we have a test server, let me know.

                          Re: 3.2b2

                          I love this changelog!!

                          Notice that while you can only be healed by one DC instead of 3, one DC heals about as much as 3 DCs did before anyway. So theyve really buffed DCs, and just taken away the incentive to stack 8 of them behind your Hive to make it invulnerable. But invulnerable hives aren't fun anyway.


                          Edit: I'm gonna repost the balance section of the changelog here for easy reference.

                          Balance Changes:
                          o Reduced Marine RT Health from 6000 to 5000.
                          o Increased Onos HP from 700 to 950.
                          o DC Limit: each entity can be healed by only one DC per tick
                          o Each DC heals 10 + 3&#37; per tick.
                          o The third hive grants an armor bonus equal to the 3.1 armor bonus.
                          o Gorge spit activates 'the enemy approaches' on a building hive.

                            IMHO, with this change DCs should be placed to heal structures, and lifeforms can then just run to them for healing stations. Obviously one in each hive(out of sight from the doors), and also one for each node that can be covered from a safe place, i.e. a vent. 3% per tick will do a lot to maintain RTs against rambos.

                              Wow Excellent!

                              I often find myself still spitting the hive as a "Last effort" before getting mowed over!

                              All the other changes will be interesting also. I"m glad the armor is back at least. Dropping that IMO was a bit drastic.
