Skulk bites that don' t work?

Skulk bites that don' t work?

Yes, it's true. I noticed one game that I was biting a res node and doing no damage, so I experimented with Proximae and Yellow Asterisk, and lo and behold, I was able to do it again.

It is not a range issue, as I get right up to the node as far as it will let me; I think you need to be straight on, though. And then I start biting, and nothing. No damage, no sparks, nothing. You can do it all day, and you will do no damage.

I'm not real good at duplicating it, but now that I know it's there, I'm starting to notice it more. Pay attention to your biting.

I hope this doesn't also happen when biting marines... :(

ditto here too. I remember during one of the mega games on friday that 3 of us were biting a res node with zero health and it didnt get destroyed.

Is this a known bug, or do I need to look into this?
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.

I've noticed it as an issue when you are TOO close to something. Usualy backing up a bit or strafing fixes it.

Couldn't find any info on it, so I posted it to the NS bug forums. We'll see.

So that's why I can't kill jack as a skulk since 2.0 was released.

whew! And here I thought it was just me. :D

You are not the only one Santal'. I was never a great skulk, but now something has changed so that I feel like I miss 90% of the time when biting a marine. :(

See thats weird because since 2.0 came out, I feel that I have become a better skulk.

Ditto to Ender... I can go on an truly unholy tear as a skulk in 2.0. My previous efforts may have been good enough to be an affront to God, but they weren't nearly as evil as they are now.
