Not sure if there is an official discussion thread yet for this outside the stickied announcement trailer. Wanted to start a discussion on everyone’s first impressions of the new mode and any concerns or praises.
Personally I applaud them for trying to add a twist to the typical one flag CTF mode seen in many other games. However, the twist is one of my biggest concerns. One life for objective modes, especially with one flag CTF, will turn into a massive campfest. I predict camping of power weapons or areas near the flag spawn as opposed to actually trying to cap - especially with team eliminations counting for the same amount of points as a capture.
Additionally, 13 points to win is going to make the matches drag on if people hunker down with rifles. A minimum of 7 rounds to win a match (TC should look at launch version of escalation and why they changed rounds required to win).
Not overly excited or dissapointed for this new mode, just skeptical of how it will handle in the “rifle meta”.
