Poll: Public CTF Structure

Which one of these would you rather see for public capture the flag?

Competitive CTF - This is pickup style CTF. Each team has their chance to attack and defend respectively in two fifteen minute rounds. The team with the most points at the end of the match wins, and the map is switched.

Round-Based CTF - Both teams are on offense and defense. A round ends when a team reaches a small capture limit. The first team to win so many rounds win, and the map is switched.

Cap-Based CTF - Both teams are on offense and defense. The first team to reach a large capture limit is considered the winner, and the map is switched.

Vanilla - This is how CTF is played now. There are no capture limits. There are no rounds. Itís just straight out capture the flag until the time runs out and the map switches. Only choose this if you prefer it over the above modes.

Wouldn't "Cap-Based" not make sense at all since almost every CTF map is symmetrical and both teams are on O/D anyway?

Round based sound pretty good though.

EDIT:

Never mind, I was thinking you meant the SIDES were switched, not the map.

Isn't the only reason pickup games use Competitive CTF is that there aren't enough players? In a perfect world, they would be doing both attacking and defending since that is how the game is designed.

This man speaks the truth. The correct way to play CTF in FF is in an 8v8 format.

this has got to change capture the flag isn't fun enough as it is it needs more structure. also sentry's need more power this makes all classes usefull for attack. so either competitive which is a bit long 30 mins is along time. i voted for the round based, however there still should be an option for standard but i think if we have a structured mode the lower player count won't be such a problem and when the playercount goes up servers can switch it to regular ctf. the option is what we really need.

Bridget doesn't play FF, so he doesn't know how PickUp/Clan styled games work.

Bridget is a girl ricey why you call her he!? Also scout needs nerfed, hw guy needs beefed, sniper needs binoculars he might have them already not sure. Or sniper should be able to laser targets for air strike. Medic needs more O power maybe speed or extra conc, and get rid of jumppad it's gimmicky. Go back to teleporters for engy instead. Caltrops for scout.

The best way for the current amount of players would be a TFC style competative game. The map starts, and anyone can join either team, with unbalanced teams (3v4) having the more amount of players on defence (like TFC). If someone leaves you would just change teams to fill their spot. 30 minutes per map.

anyone played the map water wheel in tfc?

once you spawn, players wanting to play offense go through a door clearly marked offense and players wanting to play defense go through a door clearly marked defense. Same for both teams so it forces o v d. decent concept i guess.

it will still turn to dm but atleast it makes it clear for newbs and its better than d vs d!
