i think there are some issues i don't like in the latest patch, can't say any of the teams are OP.. the win rate is pretty much the same for both as before..

The only lifeform I have problems with are really skilled Fades. Everything else is where they should be. Game is actually a lot more balanced now without lolonosspam everywhere end game.

I see you have 2.5 hours under your belt. I don't know if this is the case for you but it happens a lot:

Often when there is a mix of rookies and skilled players on a server, most of the rookies hover around the Marines team in the ready room. When skilled players see that they will join aliens because they don't care which side they play. They don't do it to stomp on rookies, they do it because they see so many people want Marines. So Aliens tends to get stacked with better players because all the rookies are afraid to learn Aliens.

I would think the lerk is a little undered power, due to spores come late in the game, and almost useless due to the fact the other team has flamethrowers already.
As skilled fades go, thats just the game. Not much you can do about that. Just work as a team. I've killed skilled fades, after everyone had a shotty, and we all aimed for him.

I know, ain't it grand?

Personally I don't see much difference in power between both sides. I'd say that the Aliens are more powerful because an Onos, Fade and Gorge can wreck most bases from what I've seen, but really it comes down to how well either team can react to changing circumstance. Like Natural Selection, the most adaptable tend to have the edge.

Onoslol.

It depends on the commanders for each team. Better communication means better team work and skill development.

Game is balanced as is. I'm barely out of rookie uniform and I can see quite clearly the game itself isn't a problem. Fact is there is a massive gulf between rookies and skilled players. A single skilled player can dominate a server entirely untill the rookies learn to stop going rambo and team up. Aliens are fine, Marines are fine. Once the gulf starts to shrink then the games will be fine also.

I just started playing & this game is horribly balanced. Aliens jump around & 2 shot you. Have more mobility, more damage, more health, routes only they can use, etc. Seems like marines are just fodder for the aliens & nothing else.

Assuming, you're talking about skulks... even with no upgrades skulks can NEVER 2 shot a marine, it's impossible. With no upgrades a skulk can kill with 3 bites or 2 bites + a parasite.

I think you need to play the game more so you actually know what you're talking about before you make comments about balance. The game is pretty well balanced as it is.

It's impossible for an alien to 2 shot you. Even at armor 0 you would have 10 health left after two bites.

No i think that everything is balanced. The onlu problem in this game is stacking. Players that play very good always play in the same team so they can win easily.
