  • How to win Docking everytime as Marines

    Rush Generator, 1 (newbie) goes to bar and cafe, com builds in base, everyone else rushes together through maintenance into gen. 3 scenarios
    1) Locker start for aliens, they are locked down to just locker
    2) Departures start, aliens locked down to just departures
    3) Generator start, BASE RUSH!
    It's a win win win strategy really.

    If your team can't manage to secure gen, either get a phase in locker, or maintenance, and listen closely for a hive. Once they drop a hive everyone but 1 guy phases and takes down hive while one protects.

    Things not to do: if aliens start departures don't try to get the rt, rather just watch it carefully for base rushes. If east gets build up simply fire an arc from marine base back into east.

    This use to be a very viable marine strategy back in season 1 and season 2. This really was the reason why docking was taken out of the ensl map pool. I agree with you, except for the generator start. If their starting hive is not Gen, then getting quick PGS set up at Gen cuts the map in half and effectively tech locks the aliens on one base.

    If it is generator start, you have to get a quick PG and obs at locker room. This confines the aliens to 3 rts, (Gen, Stab, Departures) and 2 hives. While the marines get 4 easy rts (locker, bar, caf, terminal) with the other 2 RTS being contested.

      I'd like to see Docking with Courtyard removed. COmpltely. That'd add a little balance. Maybe some halls from bar to maint AROUND locker, but not an all inclusive path to everywhere.

        It's a lost cause at this point. There are SO many things wrong with this map now. Bar and cafe are useless. Terminal tech point needs to be moved down to landing, need to move locker south some and get rid of cafe. Need to move pressure control hallway so it isn't as easy to snipe the hive.
