I like updates! Looking forward to seeing what marine nerfs are coming cool stuff is cooking, keep it up!

EDIT: since people are speculating in here, I hope some of these get in:
  • A regular map rotation, and some more/updated maps.
  • NSG-23s for W-Y PMCs. They just look cool.
  • An option (maybe an admin thing) for PMCs to turn the Sulaco's defensive system against the marines, if RP allowed for it (changing sentries to fire on marines, locking them out of key areas etc. Also W-Y autoturrets, bigger and more powerful than USCM ones.
  • Some more options for specs, maybe a flamethrower with back-mounted fueltank that can spray more and do more damage than an M240
  • Predaliens, to steamroll the ever loving shit out of everything
  • Skill system, greater clarification on what each role knows and can get away with without being banned for meta.
All-pie-in-the-sky stuff. I'm just glad to find a great server, even if it makes me salty sometimes. Thanks again!
James "Car" Irving: You don't need to be the best to be a hero. You don't even need to be smart. Being a hero comes from the heart. That, and a pack full of napthal and hand grenades.
Edward Roth: The promotion and transfer to Military Police was great on paper. The living hell of keeping a ship full of trained killers running smoothly wasn't on that paper.
Mary Adams: She didn't want to be here, but how else could she get to finish medschool? And who the hell else is gonna know the difference between Tricord and Kelotane?
Kimley Greco: Too cool for school, wears cans like a tool.
Xenos killed with a welding tool: 1
Times blown up self or others with grenades: Lost count.

Didn't make the connection till now.

The reason why Apop chose the 20th of april as the official date, and the date for the release was: 4/20/2017. 420.

The whole bit about people arguing about when the official date was is a red herring, and obfuscating the truth by writing "20APR14" instead of 4/20/14 like a normal person was meant to further mislead us from the truth:
Marijuana added to the server confirmed.
TLDR: Go back and read it. I spent time writing that, ya know.

It's also got a BRAND NEW set of edgy anime hairstyles I think everyone will enjoy as well. Additionally, we'll be using a new, better version of vorestation's devouring mechanic

Oh, and wait till you see the new tail sprites we've got. They are pretty CRAZY.

When's the update?
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.

Well then, that's an announcement I expected ;)
CM was obviously inspired by Starcraft: Ghost opening. At least when marines takes too long to deploy.
