    Throwing when entering EVAC

    Post by Probe on Fri Feb 13, 2015 12:32 pm

    Gamebreaking bug that has existed for a while but it ruining a lot of games. 

    If the Thing throws a marine while they are standing on the EVAC hatch, entering EVAC, the marine's vision will swap to the EVAC but the marine does not enter. A variety of things can happen from there. The marine can live through it even though they can't see themselves, the game can just break and never end or the evac will eventually decide the winner. 

    Ways to fix:

    Make it so marine's entering EVAC cannot be thrown. (Preferred because then 1v1 marine stands a chance. Otherwise Thing can just camp entrance and throw you away whenever you try to enter. Fucking annoying)
    Make it so if you are thrown, entering EVAC is cancelled. 

    EDIT: Clarification: When the marine's vision swaps to EVAC and they don't enter, they can't change their vision. They are stuck looking at EVAC even though they aren't in it.

    I go with option 2. Cause it's even more annoying to get 1v1 by a marine who, all they did was run around ragnov or another map.

    Really, the evac should only provide an advantage for an end game group of marines who are looking to force an ending. Not a lone marine who may or may not be able to hide behind some vents. Or throw a well timed grenade to kill the thing as he enters evac. It's going to be fucking annoying for once side, but it is more balanced to allow the thing to throw because it has a limited amount of uses and a cooldown, rather than just turning it off because a marine was able to stim to the evac.

    I'd actually agree with Proteo.

    My only concern is that it essentially means that whenever there is one marine left he loses the game even though he survived through everything and he dies simply because his teammates died. There's zero way to win when EVAC comes and there's one marine left.

    Yeah. But there's only a handful of marines able to Solo the Thing.
    I mean, if a marine really want's to get on that evac and he is the last one, wait until there's like 2 seconds left, stim, and make it to the loading. Thing won't have time to kill you, and even if he throws you, you should be able to win because the thing didn't kill you in time and he didn't make it to the Evac.

    I'll usually enter Evac at the 5-7 second mark, just to be safe. I'm sure most thing players would too.
    But yeah, usually if the only one who is alive is a higher ranked Marine, his job is usually to rally the marines and make it fetching hard to lose them. Kind of like Yoall, master of mindfucks. Followed closely by Panda
