Marine Vs Marine
Anyone find this mod wholly unsatisfying? I just can't see the fun in it at all. The maps are obviously not designed for gun vs gun action, but there's something else to it that just isn't fun.

I agree, this can't work and isn't fun (other classic FPS do it better).
Skulks With Shotgun, on the other hand, is fun !

I've played it on the new Auz Marine vs Marine server.

The first 10 minutes were extremely fun but then it descended into tedious amounts of cheese.
-Bunny hopping galore (BF2 anyone ?)
-Dodgy hitboxes
-Overpowerd exo's
Flanking on Exos is massively op. You can wipe out entire marine teams in seconds. Shotguns are useless though as a rifle will pick you off well before you get in range. There's a bit of novelty fun that turns into stupidity a futility quickly.

Imagine some 20 Skulks all jumping around trying to bite one-another.

It would be the ultimate cluster♥♥♥♥.

I remember playing AvP2 Deathmatch, Xenos vs Xenos was a complete mess and even then, aliens had ranged attacks using pounce that one-shot drones and runners making predalien uber OP. Combistick pred vs combistick pred was fun but still silly. Only Marine vs Marine was competent.

As a result, the AvP2 community barely had any servers with DM. TDM was much better.

I doubt we will ever see it in NS2. Melee vs melee when skulks have such low hp, fades having too much hp, lerks being unkillable vs other lifeforms and onos taking ages to kill. This isn't even accounting for the immense speed that aliens have. They could just dance around each other and battles would devolve into air biting spam.

MvM mod itself is actually pretty good but definitely imbalanced and the current map pool does not work for it. It's nice to have the option but should never be considered as part of the main game.

My experienve with MvM (Not in NS2, but NS1 rather)

Damage needed huge nerfing.

It was however pretty fun.

I didnt even knew there was mvm in NS2.

AVA was in nS1 as a plugin for amxx(?). Thou I dont think it was very sucessfull at all.
