Well I've been trying to advertise tremulous on q3 Razz and nearly got kicked for it Very Happy but then should we have like notices or something saying:

Code:
NEW GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ~cmac/trem FTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW


I started a server, waited for about... a while, enough for me to play quake and convert a couple of dudes Razz, so it seems maybe having a notice would help, I dunno

Trem has the official "Sage(TM) Seal of Approval(C)".

I think the only problem with trem is the maps. When maps get too open humans can just tech to jetpacks and are impossible to kill in the early stages of the game where aliens don't have projectiles - and since there is a sky and not a ceiling the aliens can't drop onto the human with the jetpack. Unless the jetpack weilder is stopped at a narrow choke point (which is impossible because humans are ranged and can push, not to mention micro) the entire alien base can be destroyed with a sole human carrying a blaster.

So the key is to select maps where the humans are forced into confined spaces.

hmmm the concept sounds similar to Warcraft Dota

Is it an FPS?

Played it today

its a pretty hectic game

still haven't figured out the tech/evolve system.

Tell me if i got this right:
Humans have to kill the eggs and remaining aliens
Aliens have to destroy the spawn pad things and kill remaining humans

tried to destroy the generator but keep getting fried by it.

I can tell you've never been good at RTS. It's all about the micro!

Because you haven't played good enough humans. Two good humans can make a tyrant go home crying... in a doggy bag :p

Well the tyrant was never alone, always had 5 or 6 other aliens bouncing around him while he charged and raped the humans.

Yes. There's more to good micro than just that, but that's essentially what it is. If you don't have a good team then that's about as close to micro as you can get.

how exactly does the generator attack? does it continously damage nearby aliens or does it damage in bursts on specific aliens?

haven't spent enough time attacking the generator to notice

Neither have I, but I assume it would target one specific alien until that target is no longer available, then select a new target to attack.
