It doesn't matter at all if there's a marine in a vent camping with landmines and a shotgun. If there is the slightest hint of lag, marines win, why? Because they can spray and pray. You can't "play alien right" if the entire team is disjointed, and that's the issue. A marine team being disjointed is a minor inconvenience, but OH GOD if you do it as an alien, you're done, and this always happens because people don't communicate, EVEN on the marine teams. I wall jump like mad as a Skulk, but it doesn't matter because they can spray and pray. Seriously, it takes no effort. I even went marine with my buddy, we just spammed cluster grenades, kept welding each other and exosuits, and we just shot down hallways willy nilly. We literally did nothing other than clump up, spam grenades, and shoot all over the place. You can't do this as an alien, and you can't counter it as an alien. It's incredibly easier to build, fortify, and even re-fortify an area as marines too. At the bare minimum, Marines win, which is an issue because even if you resource block them they can keep doing their marine thing. We COULD attack their resource towers, but that means nothing in the case of one marine with a shotgun spamming his *** off. The game is fun, but it needs some SERIOUS re-working. This is Starcraft II all over again.
Originally posted by Hobocop:Sorry, no. Flanking is map and engagement dependent, and claiming it's nearly impossible when you have supreme map mobility as aliens through gorge tunnels and generally better on foot movement options is pretty much a lie. There's nothing stopping you from using the main corridors to flank if marines want to waste their time camping vents.
Originally posted by DOTR Omnom:Flanking is nearly impossible thanks to poor vent work, marines shouldn't be able to get into them, only fire and throw grenades into them.
Originally posted by Hobocop:If server lag is your only excuse for why you can't flank through main corridors, you need to stop playing on laggy servers.
