    I may have missed this is the report, but how many areas of that map are there available for this mode?

    Please keep this mode how it is keep it restricted! It will be nice to finally play with no Rambo's. Now I would say have the battle 20 minutes long instead of 15 minutes. Also better bullet penetration on houses. This game mode will be perfect for unit on unit battle! No more just rushing the point! This gamemode is hardcore it will require a lot of scouting and very good tactical positioning. -Now we will really see who the better tactical leaders are.

    Really? We are making the ticket system and formations even more restrictive?
    We want less restrictive game play that actually encourages skirming and the solution is more closely packed lines?

    Let me see if I can adequately capture how this game is starting to make me feel ...

    WORD. That is the truth man.

    I am going to join in and say thank you to the devs. I have heard a lot of bitching but...hey that's what they are going to do..bitch and bitch because "It's not perfect" LITERALLY the same day the update happened. While I do have my own issues with the way the development of this game has been handled, I also respect that I don't understand what it takes to do this work. I appreciate the fact that you listen to us. For all those people who say that you didn't...well I can't help them not be pissy about everything. While I don't see how this game mode can even be viable until locked servers, I am thankful this update wasn't just a few fps change, and puddles that "squelch" as you walk lol.


    TLDR: THE COMMUNITY BITCHES TOO MUCH. THANK YOU DEVS.

    LMAO ... small groups of Rambos not working together is NOT a formation, is nothing new nor is it helpful.
    Bum rushing to houses and hunkering down to wait out the timer is such a change from bum rushing to a fence line or specific set of rocks, hunkering down and waiting out the timer.
    Yeah this mode is so different, unique and enjoyable.

    Well, it isn't all bad I suppose ... we can still head back to Drill Camp and oooo and aaaah over muddy footprints like before this 'game changing' patch. /facepalm

    No one is forcing you to attack an enemy in a superior position to yours.
