Please, everyone focus! Please fix CTF. Capture the flag is only fun because of the tension building cat and mouse game of when the other team has your flag and you can't score. We do not want to play GET THE FLAG anymore; we wish to play CAPTURE THE FLAG. iI can promise you that this will promote Longevity, we wont even have to worry about Sindwinder lock-ons because they will seem justified......

 

I hope I am not alone on this.


You know thats how I thought it was going to be when I first bought this game. That would be a nice fix.

They changed it because their statistical data showed that most matches ended in a draw (0-0).

Unfortunately it wasn't because needing to have your flag in place was a though requirement, like they thought, it was because a lot of players played CTF like a TDM. That's why they changed it.

 

Then CTF turned into a race for flag so, to fix what they broke, they implemeted the sidewinder lock-on thus further breaking the game.

How about the options for sidewinder lock ons and flag runs when creating the game?

I like this post ^ 

 

Tell me what you think about the shield being the problem instead?

 

It makes it difficult to get in, they slap turrents in there, mines, soldiers and Tanks. Making it very difficult to get in so people just sit back instead, if they took out the shield from CTF for good then I reckon it would fix everything, you can now destroy sniper towers, Tanks would be more aggressive keeping all the crap in the main base to a minimum and stopping people from sitting in these giant bubbles of invincibility just waiting for players to get close. It would give opportunities for sidewinders to come in and would attract people to attack rather then defend because of the good points you can pick up from destroying all the stuff in there.

 

like this you can take off the Sidewinder lock on and put CTF back to how it used to be.

That's a bit unfair to say then don't you think?

 

If you don't use SW's then it's okay to just make Hawks apsolutely a rape machine to them by allowing them to lock them on?

 

Hey Velvet, i don't use Hawks, so removing flight mode and stomp completely would be great!

 

Different points of view, i guess.

^ Rage...

I'd personally like options so maybe the option to have SW lock ons or bubble shield or both flags for capture.
