Open up map options? 4v4 on Oslo Highway?

Postby Super67 » Fri 26 Apr 2013 08:30

Maybe 4v4 on all maps or something because im sure there is alot of friends playing in teams of 4 and that limits them to just one map right now. Im fine with this, if its only because its beta but we are getting sick of playing the same map.

4vs4 8k points on Highway to Oslo... Perfectly balanced game mode if you asked me. Not.

4v4 250 points per player is perfectly fine; the only issue would be the rapidly increasing income for every player on the map.

At some point, probably a few months after release, we'll see special modes (and no, I don't particularly agree with this methodology) that'll free things up a bit.

well i personally think it should be up to the players not the people wining about the spam. i like low point starts that removes the spam somewhat. however i do agree some players do spam wildly. but i think if you join a game you might wanna check the settings and see if its a weird game like really high points. what if my 8 or more friends want to do a spam fest, couldn't i do that if i wanted to? i used to be able to. not that i like that. but i think if u want to just zoom in and see wild t34 spams or mass arty spams. or 50 jets flying around i think it would be cool.

but again the point is that if u dont like the settings dont join the game. dont limit us by taking away maps. could u imagine if there is only 10 playable 4v4 or higher maps out of 30. so 2/3 of the game cant be played with your 4 friends. and every other map is just 3v3 or less or 1v1 only has 5 maps. never available to play with more players? i dont like this option choice. and i do agree that for new players walking into a spam fest, well that does suck.

what do u guys think?

Spam and points - things which doesn't help each other. You can spam with 250 pts. With units like btr-60.

If you can guarantee that no player will ever make a judgement call or complain about balance based on those games, well sure go ahead.
Of course this won't ever happen, so I'm all for enforcing the ways the game was designed and meant to be played.

The only argument against open map options is "people could complain". Some people will have to realise that people will ALWAYS complain no matter what and that is no reason whatsoever to limit the players gaming experience. But there has been an official answer from grandstrateger (CEO) that it won't happen until (long) after release.

Game balance has allways been based on ranked games since public games have a vast range of skill levels.

Given this simple fact the players should be free to play any combination of points/map in a non-ranked game as they choose.

As far as beta is concerned the limited map selection becomes a problem when one is stuck to specific player/map combos.

It aint broken why fix.
4 v 4 HH or HtO wasnt broken in WEE. Only some people complained but the fault does not lie with the map, the settings, it lies with the people. some actually enjoy the intensity of such games as it requires a fair bit of teamwork to play such intense games.

this needs to be opened up because I only play 4vs4 games and now I have 1 map to play WTF

I thought we got 30+ maps to play on! well I guess not if you don't play 1vs/2vs2 games......

OPEN IT UP EUGEN! let the player decide

and not a couple of months after I shelved this game because of the lack of maps..
