Enjoying the game? Any questions for the vets?
Just curious if any of the newer players have any questions for us that have played some hundred hours+, and what you think of the game so far? Hostile community, friendly, confusing, etc. Any questions or opinions, i'm looking for them! Lemme know what's up, yo!

(I personally have 350 hours or so played)

How do you know who's winning? Is there tickets or somthing? I was playing earlier and it looked as though we were winning but we lost.. I'm enjoying it so far but I just need to keep playing and get the basics down.

Winning is kind of hard to tell depending on the match. The overall game is to kill the otherteams hive, or command center. Building on that, you aquire resources from building harvesters or extraters on resources points on the map. I'm sure you've noticed, or killed those before. So even if you own half the map, and it looks like you have a solid position, if they own the same part of the map, and make a big play to take out a big base, you can pretty quickly lose!

In a way, an evenly based match is an arms race. Who can get the bigger guns, and the bigger lifeforms first? That totally depends on their resource generation, not the kills. Someone who is 25 kills and 4 deaths doesn't mean anything if you only have two harvesters :)

The game kind of revolves around how well your team is working with your commander to secure the map. As i said, having two harvesters, even if you are doing really well on kills doesn't really translate to a win for you guys. It's totally about team work and taking objectives. WHen you have a commander with a mic who is vocal about what you should be doing (i.e. TAKE CROSSROADS SO WE CAN GET A PHASE GATE DOWN!) or something similar, the game really flows nice and you'll notice your team either working together to win the match, or losing engagements around the map and slowly losing the match.

The best games are the back and forth ones, where each team is constantly battling for one room or area, and even if you might win one engagement and put up a base, it doesn't always take a whole lot to take it right down and sway the match the other way :)

That makes sense now.. i believe we lost a base and it went downhill from there.. even though we had the bigger guns lol

Thanks

Not a problem! If you have any other questions feel free to ask! I think this will be a great thread for it.

I'm basically in love with the game.

But I do have one question . . . what's the point of even including the K/D ratio? It seems like it reward the people who go for the killing machines rather than the lowly healers.
Cannon Fodder 2013年12月5日下午10:49 
The K/D thing is more a relic from back say in NS1 (a HL mod from 10+ years ago). The official forums (in the UWE web site), there are some discussions about if this is needed. What ASh said is true about taking objectives, but K/D is also a good indication of how a team is tracking, in that if a team is constantly losing engagements (they tend to be losing ground (and resource towers)). So in a way the team with the better K/D tend to be doing better.

Did they every fix the latency and fps issues? I know that my computer is good enough to handle the game but when I got it even at the lowest settings I was having terrible fps and plenty of the people were on the forums about it.

Tech levesl and territory control. Both can change on the dime if you pull off the right attack.

Well yesterday I played my first few matches and I had a blast with the marines. What is better, to play as marine untill you are good at it and then go for alien or play both depending on the people in the server ...

Is it me or are so many people completely illiterate on the game?

It actually doesn't matter too much which one you try first but marines are probably slightly easy to start with due to their relation with other FPS. Both sides have an insanely high skillcap and learning curve though. Aliens require amazing reflexes, insight and intuition, movement and precision while marines rely on perfect positioning, aggression and aim.

I'd love to play alongside some more experienced players - the rookie servers I joined were mostly kinda "meh" since it seemed that nobody but that (enemey) raging rhino knew what they were doing. I had one game where a commander actually talked and looked like he knew what he was doing, but the aliens appearently had no commander or just rookies so it was very one-sided.
Anyone want a newb following him and trying to do exactly as he's being told?

Personally, i've never had issues with fps on a okay system (was an amd phenom II x4 @3.2ghz and 560ti.... now it's more powerful) and i ran on maxed settings around 40fps at all times.

They have made a LOT of strides in performance overall though, yes.

I'm always down to play! I'm not a pro, but I know -how- to play and shoot well. I'm more of a marine player than an alien, but I'm down for both, whichever you'd like to learn a little more.

Personally, I started out marines first. But once I got the idea of the game and what each building was, i played a good amount of aliens so I could really get a feel for what was possible with alien movement and what wasn't. I'm primarily a marine player, but it helps to know what good hiding spots are as skulks, the best way to try and avoid a skulk bite, and etc which I learned by playing aliens for some time. That's up to you, though :)

The game puts the shooting on the forefront with a strategy element as an important part of the game, but less so in your face. Obviously I've had games where one person will go 36-4 and loses, alternatively i've had games where our entire team is doing poorly score wise and it shows strategically because we can't hold any portion of the map. It's as team focused, if not more so that League and Dota because you will almost NEVER carry a game by yourself. In dota, and league, you can alwa

ys do really really well as a carry bottom or be a strong jungle to sway a game in your favor. In this game, you've got to have team mates on you... you aren't going to take out a room of aliens by yourself, and even if you do, you won't hold it by yourself with out some support.

It's really one of those where you look at it at a glance and think, that's just stupid, that can't work. Then you have a really really good game, and you just smile to yourself after a long win or a well fought loss.
