I like Rabbit Chase best because I have memories of times that I've played it (which were during very happy times) and also it is a ton of fun, but CTF is my second favorite as it is a lot of fun to try and get the other flag. Also, you can do neat tricks like a last minute save and be the team's hero, or other neat stuff. FFA gets boring fast, and 1 on 1 is amateur hour, although, I often times host 1vs1 servers just for the heck of it (and I have a 56k, so I take what I get :) ).

Rabbit hunt is just plain fun, and you can learn alot from a good player when he's the bunny. My lag times don't seem to bother people as much as in other styles, either.
CTF is almost exquisite when you can get a team that plays like a team and understands teamwork, but when it degenerates to basically FFA, with no one paying the flags any attention, it's time to leave.

I prefer Free for All, hands down. I don't know why, it's just that there's something about it that I love. I especially like Pie in the Sky, and Secretplace.

My favorite is CTF because i love watching everybody blow up when someone gets the flag, and also because geno is really quite effective! :wink:

I'm with lan56; Rabbit Chase, then CTF, then FFA. I have not played Hold the Flag though. I have not seen any servers playing that type of game, ever. Does anyone know of one?

Has anyone been around long enough to have played on my 100 shot rotating server? It was quite popular in the day; woulda been more popular had it not been for the lag. I hosed my boss's T1 one night with that server :-P

P.S. I voted HTF

hmmmmm, CTF seems to be overpopulating, does it involve more excitement? I play that style most, but it seems odd that it could be so much fun w/ no flagz, jump, and just 2 shots.
It requires much more skill than FFA, and i think thas y i like it :wink:
