This is basicly the same as the "How to Be a Better Predator" Thread i started, i am fairily experienced as a alien, but some people stump me...' For instance, im still on the demo so i only have drones, i have NO idea how to kill this group of friends, they have come up with nearly a flawless stratagy, they all get a smartgun ( the server they are inb they start with all weapons for all sides ). They get in a square, there was 4 of them, i wont give out names, sometimes it was a triangle and one was in the middle with a AP pistol. ( It looked awesome they were like formations in the middle ages ). Although it was cool it was practicly impenetrable untill they ran out of ammo... You see i pounce at them, and pounce at them, NO avail they own me every time, ive killed one or two before, but the other two held there ground and soon there comrades were back with full ammo again. These guys must have one hell of teamwork, i just wish my team would have the same teamwork... this map is usualy only Alien vs Humans on the server, when theres Predators the preds make it easier, but the predators get killed by aliens before they can net any humans.... So Basicly i am up aganst one of the strongest forces on that "ALesserHope" lol. Also you guys can askl stratagy questions and i will try and anser them.
Wow, sounds like a good tactic. Have you tried wallcrawling above them and pouncing directly into their midst? Friendly fire is a beautiful thing...

Yeah, it sounds like a good tactic, I on several occations as a drone killed several people close together before they even knew what hit them, but they wheren't in formation, so I dont know how I would stack up against these people.
What I usually do as a drone is to pounce on someone, and if I dont kill them from the pounce, I immediately jump over them and claw them from behind, its worked well for me in the past, but of course no tactic is perfect, you just gotta find the weakness and exploit it.
Hmm, couldn't you try to coordinate an attack with another alien? Two aliens would probably be a bit harder to kill then one. Also, where do they usually defend? An open space? An enclosed space? If they're actually using team tactics, then they must have an area they prefer defending.
I just wait untill a alien attacks and go with him from the other side, lately they have been using th triangle formation, u see, theres 1 guy in the middle. hes using a pistol, and when the guys get attacked he attacks the alien... thats why i cant get them, this is alesserfate, itsincredibly hard to wallwalk them, there aint no where to wall walk.
Lol every time i post somewhere the forum dies, in other words... BUMP!. Now, basicly the place they defend it ALWAYS right here I Run like hell everytime they go there. Well i can come from up above on the ledge ( on the left on picture ), but i always get mowed down, because they see me when i move, and theres NO way around it. Also the that Friendly fire thing? as a Predator the enemy was on the otherside of the map, all i had to do was net one, jump in hit him once and they killed enough of each other for me to mop them up. it was great.
That pic is a bit small. Maybe I'll have to get the demo and help you out lol. What server do you play on?
Going back on to strategy, so you can't wall walk, and you can't lure them out of formation... Have you tried "scaring them" as in, doing what an Alien does best, hang at the edge of their vision (and range) until they get paranoid and start looking everywhere at once, then atack in the confusion.
Usualy this guy named "Stormtrooper" hosts a server called "Aliens vs Marines", but he hasnt done it lately, but i want to try to be a marine and teach some people that stratagy, and see if i can perform it as well as they did with help. As for Scaring them... ill have to try that?, do you know the map im talking about right?, also, when some of them dont show up its easier to kill them.
Well, you have the demo, and I've played it, and there is only one map lol. It seemed dark enough to scare someone in, if they're a bit unexperienced, or unalert. How is yours so bright?
It seems brighter than all those other maps, and did u know if you turn the brightness up on your monitor you can ( EASILY ) see the enemy in dark spots.
