Defensive playing modes

Post by Ragnarok » Fri Apr 23, 2010 11:28 pm

Maybe there could be a mode where 1 team defends an area, and the other team attacks it. The defending team's base would have high walls, many sniping spots, and an underground passage going into it. The passage can be used by attackers to infiltrate the base. There would have to be more attackers than defenders. That way, it evens the odds. I always find it easer to defend than attack. The way the attackers win is to get people into the base and stay there. if the attackers are in the base long enough, they will win. The more attackers in the base, the faster it takes to win. The defenders just have to hold off the attackers fro a certain amount of time.

There will be walls and other things that can be used as cover for the attackers approaching the base.

Plus, the team shield idea mentioned earlier could help the attackers to advance on the base. But, as soon as the person with team shield gets into the base, then the shield doesn't work. But the person can leave the base, and the shield will turn back on. The shield will not go into the base, so the person can't just wait outside the base with the shield going through the wall.

Most of this isn't really an enhancement request. It's more of a map request. The actual game mode would likely be possible to some extent with a plugin as well.

The team shield isn't is something that won't happen, so don't bother with that. The rest of it could work though.

I was explaining how the game would be played, and what the map could be like and how it fit into the mode.

Right. A map and a plugin. Not an enhancement for the game.
