    whilst the idea is great, i love it, i can see some issues. your squad is being wiped, so you throw your SL inside a cryobag and the dropship picks him up...
  • Dirty Old Harry27 Jun 2017, 14:02
    There's a chance it picks him up, it's random.
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:03
    Yeah thats why it'd be better with a beacon tied to the statis bags or whatever better thing replaces them. Getting replisned only by a DS drop bringing the bags back or a medical crate.
  • TehSpoderman27 Jun 2017, 14:03
    That sounds pretty dumb
  • Dirty Old Harry27 Jun 2017, 14:03
    But look at coastguard rescues with helicopters, they use a bed and winch so this makes sense.
  • TehSpoderman27 Jun 2017, 14:03
    I dont want a chance that i wont get picked up

    from the way its written, if theres only one cryo bag active, itll 100% pick him up
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:04
    Idea has been floating for days in the noggin. You should be able to snatch a marine or two from the frontlines on a fire mission. But you shouldn't have time to pickup a squad on the same run you would blow the crap out of a mountain on a missle run.
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:06
    Not a huge fan of the random part either. As it is on the PO's console I see, Charlie SL laser (Barrens). I figured the medevac would be the same. Charlie Medbeacon (Tablefort)
  • TehSpoderman27 Jun 2017, 14:06
    You think there should be a third flight path thing on the console?
  • Casgair27 Jun 2017, 14:07
    Yeah, while the random pickup seems a little goofy (why not just have something like laser targeting for the new DS firing), it's not a "random chance to pick up" so much as a "random chance to be chosen among stasis bags"
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:08
    Nah. The word Firemission can easily be swapped on the console to what the wiki calls its Close Air Support
  • Casgair27 Jun 2017, 14:10
    What would make sense is Winch picks up bag/bed (Or winch is just equipped with bed) -> Doc on DS presses lever to bring patient to DS "floor" -> Patient is brought on board "via conveyer" (read: coding magic/zlevel nonsense) -> Pilot picks up next patient & process repeats until all injured are evac'd
  • Casgair27 Jun 2017, 14:11
    What I don't like about this suggestion is that it's impossible for the aliens to counteract this; if Ayys were NPCs then I'd be all for it, but it otherwise seems to mess with balance
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:12
    Thats why I don't the idea of being able to fire the weapons at the same time.
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:13
    I'm not a medic marine how many statis bags do they get?
  • TehSpoderman27 Jun 2017, 14:14
    I think like 5 maybe?
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:15
    Perhaps a balanced procedure would be like it is for the SL's beacon. Medic straps you in the bag, beacon is active, the spinny thing over the medic's head activates and he can't do anything until its done. While the spinning thing is going thats the window for the bag to get picked up?
  • Casgair27 Jun 2017, 14:16
    I think you can manage more if you really try, but I can't imagine the regular medic taking much more than 3.
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:16
    PUtting the medic out of active healing so it won't be spammed, and would be used sparringly unless you have a hotshot PO that is running quick ops.
  • Casgair27 Jun 2017, 14:17
    Of course, if evac'ing became the new meta, probably 7
  • Ping27 Jun 2017, 14:19
    Medics get around.... yeah, 5-ish in the vendor, more if they go to medbay. They could regularly get 7 as long as medbay remains open.
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:23
    So average of one maybe two good medics the whole round one of them would be evacing folks either way this jsut keeps in close to the front while stuck trying to load up the wench?
  • Chuckachu27 Jun 2017, 14:24
    Plus medica near the LZ wouldn't even need to bother since with the engine upgrades the Alamo moves back and forth like greased lightning.
  • Casgair29 minutes ago
    Doesn't necessarily have to be near the front, just as long as it's outside and fairly well guarded
  • Casgair27 minutes ago
    Done right (with my suggestions) it would mean that medics wouldn't really need to worry about marines that are practically unsalvageable - just have them popped into the DS and let the docs take care of it

  • Casgair25 minutes ago
    Was that during the wall round?
  • Chuckachu24 minutes ago
    Haha Yeah. If the beacons aren't ID locked they should be at least a time consumer so a random Ay could just rush by and ruin your day.

    Is there any way to pull text logs from that? I heard the Queen was ridiculous but didn't really catch much of anything she said
  • Jaketeaking21 minutes ago
    My post was last round, xenos finished with over 40, but the wall round, had about 4 queens, one spoke spanish. others didnt really do anythin
  • Winter21 minutes ago
    Wasn't there a trump meme queen that round?
  • Jaketeaking20 minutes ago
    Appaently there was also an NPC named trump
  • Casgair16 minutes ago
    And a large reinforced wall directly south of the river
  • Jaketeaking15 minutes ago
    Also for text logs you'd probably have to ask an admin, not sure if they would though
  • Casgair14 minutes ago
    Curses. So begins my long quest to become a staff member just to pull logs from a meme round
  • Jaketeaking13 minutes ago
    Eh, like i said just ask one of em, and they might. as far as im aware, theyre allowed to give that stuff as long as theres not an investigation going on about that round
  • Casgair12 minutes ago
    I'm mostly joking; would not go through all the hoops to become staff simply to log dive
  • Boltersam11 minutes ago
    So, quick note, since it was black goo causing the infections during the zombie round we had yesterday, I think we can safely say that they're Accelerant creatures.

    And how to do that?

    Grab someone and click on your sprite

    It slowly hurts and kills the person though, be careful.
