Territory best gamemode and firefight is horrible with 64 players in Apartments.

Since it is an extra feature I don't mind it. And yes sometimes it is fun to just mindlessly kill with no objective in mind. I don't think I will be using it very often, but I see no reason to object to it.

Same with 64 Danzig on TE.
Most populated FF servers dont allow more than 40 players btw, just give it a try. TE always plays the same, this one doesnt and thats what I love about it.

My favourite mode is TE and i do like firefight, but Countdown i just don't like it that much at the moment.

Hopefully when the game is released a lot of the UK servers will play TE only maps as that is the mode i enjoy the most. :D

um.... Firefight is probably the worst gamemode ever made. If I wanted to play meaningless kill the other team without an objective games I would pop in a ****ty COD game.

+1 for FF. I don't know yet if I really like it BETTER than territory (doubt it) but it IS a really nice change of pace. I've only got about 3 hours in-game so far, but it's mostly been FF in apartments. It is a bit addictive.

It will be interesting to see how the different game-types populate servers when the final game hits, but at the very least a quick couple of rounds of fire-fight will be a good way to warm up.

Like Tripwire has been saying for months...now we have OPTIONS.

And options are good!

Firefight - probably fun when drunk. But the spawns are mega random.. I spawned in the same place with 4 germans.. and I was ruskie. Atleast that's how it seemed. X__x

Personally I would love to have the traditionally bomb and defuse / search and destroy game mode brought into RO2, I wouldnt play anything else if it was in there. Now I kind of have to even if I dont like it that much, because the game is just that good and I love FPS games with the WW theme.

At first I thought Firefight would be the worst of everything about CoD. The spawns can be a bit chaotic. However, I find at least there's teamplay and active roles being taken by players, unlike Countdown which is "hunker down and don't move regardless of whatever is happening."

This is what stood out for me as well once we started testing it. Aside from the chaos, it can be surprisingly tactical...

The spawns can be fairly predictable. Depending on where the enemy is at the time, I've had a good bit of luck being ready and waiting for them at their next spawn area.

(at least on apartments)

I honestly can't stand this mode. Everytime it pops up more than twice in a rotation I have to switch servers because honestly, I find it horrendous

I believe there's a bug with how spawns are checked before spawning. Basically there's no enemy radius check.

Still havent tried it; doesnt seem very appealing.

Nor has the idea of "constantly changing spawns" been a selling point for me. Brings back memories of MW2 and Black Ops.

Me: Imma clear this house!

Me: Sweet all clear, lets move on..

*Enemy spawns in the room i JUST cleared 5sec ago*

Him: YOU DIE NOW! BANG!!!

Me: wtf where did you come from?

I dont want them taking it out, i just hope it doesnt become the popular game type...
