I dont know why UW..
Cant say i dont know why UW is having a hard time balancing the teams of aliens without just dismantling the team they are trying to balance, it used to be aliens were OP, now the Marines are and the aliens are just the marines pets at this point. Me and my buddies who play together in either just fun games, or to compete, are now having the hardest time winning as aliens, but flawlessly win as marines. But now with this recent patch and seeing that they nerfed the aliens some more, my friends are just about giving up with NS2, we enjoy being aliens because its a refreshing break from just another shooter. But when you play a game and all you do is lose without a chance of victory(unless the marines team is stacked agaisnt) then well you just get bored of it. what i would like to see that may fix it and make balancing teams better, is a personal RANK, and not one that simply "play longer and get higher rank" i mean, skill rank. With points being gathered for destoryed structures and players, as well as healing and fixing them as well as other players, then when you want to randomize players in teams, the server makes the best choices of the players by rank to balance them, instead of just flipping coins with everyone because that stacks more games than just everyone going whatever.
