    Nesting Gameplay 2020 Discussion

    So as of January 9th of 2020 this was added

    Nests are now UNRESISTABLE. Upon being nested, you will be given an option to remain in your body or ghost. If you pick to ghost and is freed from your nest while ghosted, you will be brought back into your body. So the only way to get out of a nest is by someone else unnesting you.
    Making this thread for people to discuss and a poll.

    As for my own thoughts, I don't like it. It makes the game even easier to compensate for baldness compared to even the three second delay. Making non secure nests is now no longer necessary which means drones will build more poorly even more so then before (granted I GUESS that might be an extreme way to look at it). This also means no longer trying for coordinated escapes which while fairly rare were fun to try and do with others.

    EDIT:
    Alright after getting tackled ONCE by some shitter drone waiting behind a corner and then getting nested. No. Go Back. We deffo don't need this. Whoever thought this meem that I chatted in discord once was a good idea didn't think this through completely.

    It makes it too easy for xenos, to balance it I think maybe something like removing multibursting would help or somehow making it harder to get captures in the first place.

    I think something did have to be done though, nobody likes to guard nests, it's super boring and sometimes the only reward you get for standing there for 5+ minutes is a pissed off marine turned larva who just runs to the frontline and suicides to get revenge for being captured.

    I legitimately do not even understand the reason behind this. The sole purpose of sentinels is to watch hosts. Why bother anymore? Why dedicate and manpower to guarding the hives and the hosts when everyone can run straight to the marine FOB and blow shit up. Meanwhile marines have to divide themselves between FOB and the front.

    This is not a good addition to the game. You get captured you are essentially dead. No chance to escape. Might as well just quit and wait for the next round.

    I liked being able to break outta nest meant A.you make it back to marines (unlikey) B get caught and try again and again and maybe kill something then burst but now it sucks you can’t get out unless freed by some one else

    It's a really bad update.

    I've had crazy rounds where I'm able to escape from the Hive and save other marines.

    It's a great RP experience and loads of fun.

    I say this as a Xeno player too, it unbalances the game.

    Drones & sentinels just frontline like idiots now, a role already filled by the Hivelords and Spitters.

    The Host's in the hive need to be guarded as much as the Almayer needs MPs.

    It's makes for poor gameplay and diminishes the Fun.

    Game actually is less fun as of today.

    Apparently the nesting process is MUCH longer now, which is good

    The problem is that carrier still exists

    That means nothing, Xenos are still top tier at stuns and spitting for stuns.

    All it takes is a single Senti to spam stun a marine all the way to a nest and then leave, never to return.
