That was a good series of games last night. I commed a couple and didnt actually lose. Which is a nice change But I think I was lucky as my team seemed pretty good, I'm not entirely convinced I was doing much for them really. Need to practice marine comming though as that's still a bit unfamiliar to me.
And that tram game with the awesome skulk horde at the end was awesome.

As a newcomer to NS2 (haven't started it once), how familiar should I be with the game to not dismay my fellow RPSers?

Not at all! We try to encourage as many new players as possible, and are more than willing to do a little tutorial session to help explain some of the basic game concepts to get your started.

We are also very happy to let newbies try commanding. Comming in public games when you're learning is a nightmare, not just because people will yell at you that you're doing it wrong, but will often tell you off for building perfectly reasonable things/not pay attention when you do what they want/basically not cater to their every whim.
Also airtekh is sick of us bugging him at the start of every single game by this point.

It sure is hard to be Felisc around Sketch...
I found this wiki to be a good place to get some basic advice:

I actually recommend tracking down a 'pro' competitive game or too being commentated on on youtube. It probably won't look like what you're actual experience of it would be like too much, but it gives you an idea of what's important for your team to focus on and how best to use some of the trickier alien classes (fade in particular, a lot of new players will try to rush a base with them).
Also you'll be able to answer smugly when someone asks why your commander built an armoury next to a door on the other side of your base.

Sunday was a great night! Great games and great fun. NS is such a different beast when there's communication and some familiarity with the players :-)
Unfortunately I probably can't make it this week, what with the Easter and and all.
Of course spectating normal games is useful as well. And you get to move the camera yourself. However, on many servers spectating is considered bad manners, as it takes up a slot. Watching a league game or two also has the advantage that those games are usually very coordinated. Which means pretty much everything you see is practiced and purposeful.
We could perhaps have someone spectate and make a video of an RPS game some night. Even with commentators :-)
EDIT: Clarified a bit

Yeah, would be super cool with someone spectating and recording!
I really ought to learn some different tactics, as now I'm mostly just building stuff and asking people to defend somewhere, not really organizing attacks.

To be honest, I have to disagree that watching pro matches when you haven't even fired up the game once is going to help much. Sure, watching these matches is awesome for advanced teamplay and observing refined tactics/strategies, but it won't explain the basic things that you have to know, once you're faced with a marine or an enemy base. First you have to know what does what, then you can draw conclusions. Otherwise it would be putting the cart before the horse.
Anyway, Labbes, now that I have started to discuss this matter, please don't feel pressured into doing any of these things. I'm just discussing this as a matter of principle. You will be just fine without preparing, it will take a little longer to ease into the game, that's all.
Yes, a spectated and commented game would be awesome! Sketch, you're eloquent and got a handsome voice and are very skilled at recording... No reason, just saying!

By the way I'm not claming that Alien win from the other night, that belongs to Olive. We were well on the way to defeat before he took over.
Balmark does though, a lovely Cork brogue so it is.

Well remember he thought Houdini was German. A man of the world is our Felisc.

Research defenses against fades, or else Kwis will sculpt you into a statue of him self using your bones.
I'm kidding but he is a very good Fade so ask him tips
