    An everlovin' riot in there, isn't it? :D

    There's a lot to learn from that view. Three years and I'm still not thinking fast enough for it, usually.

      Not to discourage you, but you got very lucky on that game. We all ran to cargo, and fusion was their hive. I ran in there and spawncamped the entire dead alien team for about 30 seconds, then the rest of the team ran in and we LMG'd the hive down. If the hive had been waste or satcom we probally would have lost.

        Why don't you go find another parade to rain on, Enigma? :p Actually, I was on the recieving end of that rush. Without meds and ammo you would have lost...so now Root is an integral part of your win. :O

        Oh, and good job.



        Spawn camping for the lose.

          Interesting duel accounts of the same event.

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.

            Not really, we might have had an armory up at cargo (I don't remember), so one or two marines could have stayed in the hive and camped aliens, while the rest of the team ran back for ammo, repeat.


            Okay, now I'm just arguing for the sake of arguing.

              Good job Root. Commanding is definitely a trial by fire.
              It takes balls to get in the comm chair at first.
              Which is why you don't see Enigma in there too often.

              And oh yeah.............................

                I'd comment, but then I'd be a hypocrite, too. =\

                If you take an interest to practicing commanding more often, Root, just join some day when there are few players and say you want to try it out. We'll have a non-serious game and I'll fade so you will probably win.

                    I have no idea who was the *real* comm for that game. I was just the guy in the chair. Someone was calling all the shots, and I was doing my best to keep up. But still it was an experience. Someone on the team (jokingly) suggested that I brag about winning, but they know (as do I) that it was the team that won the game.

                    I'd definitely be up for some more time in the comm chair - is there such a thing as a slow paced game of NS? It would certainly be easier for getting to grips with the command interface. I think my biggest issue is not knowing the maps. Someone told me later in the night to cover bombsite A. Now thats an order this lurk can understand :D

                      Having problems finding your way? Look at this. They are minimaps, labeled, and translucent. Dowload and extract to your ns\sprites\minimaps folder.

                        No. :D

                        However, if you've got a group of regs on, and you announce that you're making an effort at learning to comm, generally everyone will be amenable to your efforts and pull back the turntable from 75 RPM to 33 1/3. :)
