NG Update

Jul 12 2013 11:20 AM | V8Energy in News

I don't normally post updates because I suck at it but I decided to give it a shot since no one else would. Figured I have some free time from being unemployed. Job hunting is tough and frustrating. Once you lose your job, your whole life changes, you feel like a different person. Makes me think of Fun with Dick and Jane.


Hopefully I won't reach their level though.

Anyways, back to NG and NS2:

We've been experiencing issues with the servers, now I am working extra hard to fix them. The damage counter was broken and the console was filled with bunch of errors, that is no longer the issue.

Here's the current setup:

Server 1 - 22 players
Server 2 - 24 players
Server 3 - 24 players
Server 4 - 16 players

We're currently working on fixing the badges and the server status information on NG's main page.

Post any questions or stop by our IRC channel on irc.gamesurge.net #nationalgaming

Build 250 In Process

Jun 22 2013 09:38 AM | MrWoot in News

Build 250 is currently being playtested and the biggest change is introduction of the balance test into standard play. Word on the street is the changes will be implemented in the next few weeks.

From UWE:

Natural Selection 2 Build 250 is under construction! This is a real milestone build. Andi has been cranking on balance changes for months under the guise of ‘Balance Test Mod,’ and those changes are now going in to the game. Yesterday, the first iteration of build 250 was released to the wonderful playtest group. Obraxis led a few games, and the build is looking quite solid at this stage.

There’s no word yet on how long 250 will spend in the oven, but we are aiming for days, not weeks. Here are two games from yesterday, from both the marine and alien perspectives:
