So, TC just recently revealed that Control will return as a quickplay playlist and would be replacing Koth there. I wanted to give my thoughts on this.
I really liked Control when it was an event playlist and I still am eager to play it. However, I was hoping for it to become a ranked gametype and possibly replace Koth once the problems with the gametype hae been resolved. Imo, Control is better than Koth and potentially better suited for ranked because setting up defense around the ring is a bit more difficult when you need to have a player inside the ring as well.
Of course, whichever gametype is truly better is a matter of opinion. This is just my pov and the reasoning behind it.
Also, I’m a bit surprised that they’d just remove Koth from quickplay. Why not just have both Koth and Control come up in the voting within one playlist?
I don’t play quickplay much so I can’t say which gametype is the favorite out of the two within the dedicated quickplay community, but surely it wouldn’t hurt to have both in one ring-based gametype playlist. In ranked matchmaking having both in a single playlist wouldn’t work for obvious reasons, but it’d be perfectly doable in quickplay.
