Boring?
Anyone else think the game has gotten really boring? I can't exactly place my finger on it? Anyone else feel this way and figure out why you get that feeling? I'm sitting here trying to figure out why I play this any more. After the last few patches the game quality as far as matches are concerned have taken such a HUGE dive. The games are probably 1/10 as exciting as before. Those damn whips you can port into a base are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, they ruin the game a bit off the top of my head. Onos feel weak, were as before they felt powerful yet could still be killed, no I feel like an overgrown Gorge. All kinds of little things but they all add up to this feeling of bahhh.

We play it in the hopes of finding a rare match which it isn't decided in the first five minutes and actually sees both sides fighting for control. I agree there has been an element that has been removed by the patches. Earlier builds made the game fast paced and exciting. Now it lterally just a rinse and repeat game, where everthing has to be done one way in order to win. Maybe they will figure it out since the poulation of this game is declining.

Tends to happen when you play a game for so many hours and learn all of the ins and outs, so nothing is really NEW or EXCITING anymore. The recent gameplay changes haven't changed things so much that it invalidates this saturation.

Even now, I've seen Onos from one hive go on huge killing sprees and just be terrors in general against marines that are IN THE LEAD and own practically everything on the map, because they played smart and the alien team supported them properly. Far from weak.

Whips have been nerfed like 20 times since they added Contminate into the game, and I really can't agree that echo Whip bombs have ruined the game in any way when they're intended to be a mechanic to help break marine turtles which arguably ruin the game even more by turning it into an agonizing slog.

Holy crap, I think 617 hours in a game will give that feeling.

Sure it has... (at least for me)
Since the last patches the amount of really good games and awesome situations has dramatically decreased... Also the amount of possible winning strategies went from "endless" to maximum 2... the game has lost the dynamics it had... If you want all the lost strategies I know in detail, I can tell you, but that will be a looong post... there is no point in being commander anymore... you could print out the "main strategy" and pin it to the wall... follow it... most chances of win... before recent updates I saw so many badass commanders with tons of different strategies... all gone.

I played the game with a lot of fun - even when there was "nothingreally NEW or EXCITING anymore" ... Since the last patches this fun is simply gone and I stopped playing 2 weeks after reinforced... joining a game all 2-4 weeks to see if something has changed again... but no.

Also (but that wasnt the reason for me to stop playing)
UWE made a big mistake with the Linux port...
That was 100% useless... look at the steam charts.

Brought a LOT of performance and crash issues to tons of windows users...
And the game gained exactly 0% new players...
OR lost exactly the same amount of windows users they gained from linux... lol.

I have to agree about those whip rushes which can be blame annoying but honestly while there annoying there mainly used to break marine turtles.

Ever since they decreased the exo's armor everything in the game has felt more flimsy, I swear before onus was the tank of the battlefield now its more of an armoured car...perhaps its because of my excessive 32 player servers idk.....

I think it's pretty boring now because in most of matches the commander never commands just sits there building stuff etc. I'd command but I'm feeling quite rusty and I'm really bad at tactical decisions right now I think. :P Going to have to work to make it happen!

i think a big problem are the short matches. every match i joined the last times were just short as ♥♥♥♥. you knew in every match after 5 min who would win.

the new maps aren't as great as hyped up to be. I say stick with the tried and true and improve upon what already works. Also, I noticed an influx of cheats coming in to the game. I have a ton of time logged into this game so I can guarantee that a steep dropoff of players occured when bs hacks started popping out. If I wanted that, I wouldve just played a battlefield game. Oh well, off to support another indie company with promise. One more thing was the admin abuse by various servers. Players were banned for inappropriate reasons, which caused players to become very conscientious of how they communicated in game. I mean overly conscientious.

Agree, last few updates made the game sort of boring.

Less, strategy in general. Lower skill cap for marines. Just whole game feels simplified and dumbed down.

I'd just say about whips rush : rines got their arcs. Aliens need Biomass level 9 (or infesting by cysts but uh...), and rines need a lot of Tres, so.... Don't let aliens get a 3rd hive, and don't let rines get too many resources. That's all ;)

Yeah that line of thinking is called 'You being stupid and unadaptable'.

If everyone plays the exact same way every time, it should be pretty damn easy to sit down, think out the weak point, and then surprise the crap out of them. Oh that's right, you're stupid and unadaptable.
Rainer Baedal Oct 19, 2013 @ 12:05am 
I'm not sure about tactics, there really doesn't appear to be anything else except for one direct line other than failing to follow that line. There is no adaptation or strats left. Gas? Fire? Grenade laucners? Oh wait whips...Jet packs? Oh wait you can already use lerks. What adaptation are you talking about there are no real major counters other than flame thrower now. Shift use to be a nice tactic place one in a good spot and spawn the crap out of something but hey removed that tactic and gave it to the players who can end up flailing about like ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

The only "counters" are telling people to go here or there, which are not in itself "tactics" rather than rallying morons to go in one direction.

it got boring for me after first 10 hours, only mods and modded server can make it fun for more than 50 hours. which is enough for such games
