When are they going to fix this game?
I've come back so many times to this game and each time it's gotten worse. When me and some friends played at release, it was the most balanced.
Now? It's gone from aliens ALWAYS being OP to marines being slightly stronger than them, and then alien players QQ'ed so much that they returned aliens to their OP state. Marines REQUIRE a good commander and decent team with communication in order to fight the aliens.
Aliens? They require that their commander isn't braindead and that their players are half decent.
Aliens dont need to build and they can run freely killing anything and everything in 1-2 hits.
Marines need to build their sturcutres and move in groups with coordination otherwise they gret destroyed by a few aliens.
Mechs are utterly useless now, especially the railgun one which use to require skill to be good, but not its broken and doesnt even kill anything. Shotguns are pretty much the only saving grace that marines have, and you still need to be good at aiming and bunnyhopping everywhere in order to kill anything.
Onos can eat people, basically a "press to kill" button. Fades are just as OP as they have always been, high damage, high speed, high health. Lerks I would say are probably the most balanced of all the aliens. Gorges have an absurd amount of health for some reason, and skulks are extremley strong, and dominate early game, and are still strong mid to late game.
When are they going to fix this ♥♥♥♥ing game? I can't enjot aliens nor marines because I either easily destroy the enemy or get destroyed easily. The game should be balanced stat wise, but instead it relies on marines being good players and aliens being half-decent players in order for the game to be balanced. I have yet to play this game regulary since the first month of release. Back then me and a few friends would play often, and I would even play alone at times. Then they broke the game and we all got bored of the unbalanced ♥♥♥♥ that is NS2.
Fix your ♥♥♥♥ devs, stop trying to squeeze money out of us with your in-game store ♥♥♥♥ or whatever, and adding crappy new stuff and just fix the ♥♥♥♥ling balance! I would be content to see the game reverted to release's version and just play that.
