Long games
Okay, so I just had a game that lasted almost an hour and a half. I felt like a champion, though, because I got to use 4 dual exos and our team came back from having one CC. I just wanted to know, how common are NS2 games that last over an hour? I mean by pub standards, not NSL.

Rare:

http://ns2stats.com/

That site has only recored 156 games between 55~60 minutes since the game got released, but NS2stats isn't on many servers.

Long games are more common during sales and free weekends.

So play a lot during those events if you like those match lengths, while I will try to avoid them.

The best part about matches lasting that long is all the pRes you get to spend on Exos/Oni XD

Unless it's a base trading game of silliness.

A few days ago I racked up over 1,000 points in an hour long game.

I love long 2-3 hour matches, they re generally super epic and fun to play.
Short disbalanced matches with fast rush to main base sucks imo...no fun.

I just had one of those... except by the 80 min mark I wanted to just concede cuz I was tired of retaking crossroads and flight for like the 6th time. lol

I've commanded a 2h 30m game before but I haven't had one close to that long for awhile.

Bah, we had 10+ hour games in NS1 sometimes :P

Not often at all. The aliens tend to win if they have an even slightly below average IQ level. They seem to have all of the benefits. Building fast, quick resource nodes, OP evolution, etc etc

Wait, I thought the current talk was that Marines where OP, did we change back to Aliens OP again?

He's got a mere 25 hours in gameplay.

Yeah..I got nothing more to say.

The side with better team players is OP.

If both sides are complete ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥s, and make it to end game tech, then marines have the edge, slightly.

I've played NS for 221 hours. I can say that if I beilieved either side was OP, I havnt seen it with the new patches much.

I've won with marines, I've lost with Marines.
I've won with Aliens, I've lost with Aliens.

If you're having a streak of losses of a specific side. could be a stacked team, try changing servers.
