Ya'll seem to drift and forget about the carrier :P

I suggest huggers don't have that stun timer when they are droped and should stay active (or at least reduce it). and just bring back helmets blocking a hugger jump.

I think carriers are alright now to be honest. They will very very rarely get a combat infestation and that's really their only problem, but because marine helmets don't block a hugger anymore they're extremely useful since they don't need to toss two in order to infest one marine. So a full load of 7 means you can toss huggers inside of barricades and maybe get a guy while pushing them back so they don't get hugged while infesting anyone your sisters drag back.

Like carriers are super legit just throw them at barricades and marines back way the fuck off, you can even throw them over.

Eggs are expensive. Fuck that.
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

True, but they did it so that the sentinels would have something to do (transfer the queen plasma) rather then just roaming until the 50 minute mark.

Hell, get two spitters to fill you up with juicy plasma and I can assure you you'll have tons of eggs.

Carriers regen plasma pretty fast too, I saw a round yesterday where a Queen got funneled so much plasma that she filled the whole front of the pre-fog area near tablefort up with eggs.

Yes we gave them the Catholic Priest style nerf they deserved to get.

Gone are the days of walking out of security five minutes in as a survivor and being simultaneously hugged by 3 runners. Now, you walk out and get slashed to death by 3 runners instead.

TL;DR: Suffering in a nest for ~5 minutes better than dying, bring back ASAP, priority suggestion.

Hugger combat was the bane of my existence when I started. All you had to do was go near one and BOOM you're infected. And since escaping from the nest is impossible, you're pretty much fucked
