Make sure that your hive is ready to attack before you attack. The marine are weakest when they're across the river but not in the caves, and flanking/surrounding is your friend.

Once a the walls are up, act like a wave.
Call for your little babes to only attack on your screech. Wait for them to get close whilst being obscured, charge, screech, kill, drag/infect(both optional) before retreating.
Walls and sticky resin are your friends. Doors are weak and only serve to catch your xeno out in the open. Tunnels and resin.

The admins here are all generally pretty active members of the community. Hell, they're normally some of the most active.

try to controle your casts, having no boilers or no crushers is a veeeery painful experience, announce and time well your screeches cuz them john cena memes is what wins xenos rounds out of a hopeless situation sometimes, also EGGS EGGS EGGS it a simple tactic but very very important as eggs work as area denial, wastes marines nades bullets and gives you new xenos also its insurance if queen dies, also do not try to get out of your way to save someone even if its an ancient crusher, there is nothing more important than queen

Start:
1.Do a lot of eggs and c.r runners for the capture of monkeys (Very important!)
2. Triage the T3 on their individuals.
3. DO A LOT OF EGGS!
4.Collect servivors.

Good start - good win.
P.S: The young alien must not leave the hive after contact with the infantry. They climb on line fire and die from the weapon.

When in doubt, Lay more eggs. Keep this in mind and you'll be better than most queens.
There is almost no such thing as too many eggs.

Listen to me kid... a hive that needs the queen in the front line (excluding the FOB/nexus assault) is a bad hive. In order to be a good queen (which leads to a good hive) you need to COMMUNICATE with your hive. Not to boss them around but give general advice on: the time monkeys and humans can survive in your belly and when should they be regurgitated, use HIVE ORDERS REGULARY to give objectives for each caste and to have evolution requirements... for example: I want at least 2 from each tier 3 excluding prae which I need only one ( I don't care if it takes you a year to write it all down just do it, a empty or even worse a non updated hive orders will lead to a defeat). Don't be afraid to use hive announcements to relay messages. If a xeno doesn't listen to you intimidate her that if she doesn't do what she's told (like a sentinel refusing to guard hosts) you'll call queen mother to make her head explode (if she still refuses to listen actually report her to the admins). NEVER AND I MEAN EVER allow slashing before the marines arrive. Thank xenos who give you plasma and give a good word to those who successfully subdued marines, or if you win an assault saying: "good job sister keep it up" only raises morale.

I have finished games in under a hour and a half in high pop (80-90 players) with these tactics you'll do so as well.

I noticed that planting eggs in a pattern of
xoxoxo
oxoxox
is better then just mindlessly spamming them like
xxxxxx
xxxxxx
you cover more area with egg in less time, making it easier for xenos to spot ur eggs and decreasing the distance they have to go for them
I play Xeno 99% of the time. All castes.

Never actually thought of this, that's a really good idea.

Some minor idea there:
Frequently look at hive status, also never loose track of the chat.

I've seen queens completly disregard one or the other and completly lose the bigger picture of the fight, loosing due to their own lack of information.
I most often remind them of this, due to how I've been in several rounds where the queen was one of the 3 remaining xenos during a Sullaco rush and she didn't realise untill PMCs were pushing us back.

So yea, information is power. If you know what your ennemies are doing you already know more than they do, because you're planning and they're defending. Defense lose against strategic offense, defense wins against dumb offense.

Hope you have fun, see you around.
CM was obviously inspired by Starcraft: Ghost opening. At least when marines takes too long to deploy.

Stay with the crusher, tell him to follow you, crusher will be your best friend.
"In 100 years more we will be a story.In 200 years an epic period.In 500 years a medieval tale.
In 1,000 years a relic. In 5,000 years archaeological remains. In 10,000 years an ancient mystery.
In 20,000 years a legend like Atlantis. We are nothing. Life is so short and death so long. "

Everyone else handled command, I'll handle battle.

You use your tougher-than most exoskeleton and large healthpool to walk right up to the large Marine group, screech, and then get out of dodge. Once you screech, you're a slow-moving sitting duck, and nobody is stupid enough to get into melee range with you.

tell that to my combat knife alien skum

as for being a good queen, lay eggs, give orders, make sure everyone is doing what they are meant to and, if worse comes to worse and you need to go into combat, make sure you got atleast 3 aliens behind you when you go for the screech

Decide up front what kind of hive you are running. Make sure that you know the basics of the map.
Be good the chosen strategy. Decide how the various pieces of the brood figure into it. Your role is to let the others take their mind off things because they follow your master plan.

Have some hive orders already written up so you can copy/paste them into the client.
* Location of hive.
* Where to nest hosts. Where to nest aggressive hosts.
* Do you wish to micro manage upgrade/evolve or do you have some minimum requirements? Do you wish everybody to upgrade immediately if evolution is not available?
* Runners usually look for furries without much ado, but it's a bit unclear:
* Who watches the nested humans? Sentinels? T3's?
* How much roaming should the various tiers of xenos do when they are young/mature?

Pay attention to the chat.

Remember/note the designation (number) of those with key roles.
