New Game Mode : WAR

Sorry for another game mode post, but I think this one's actually good...

So there are 2 teams, Alpha and Bravo. The teams fight on a map which has the teams' spawn points on opposite sides. When someone dies they do not respawn. When one team is all dead a point is added for the winning team and everyone respawns at their own spawn point, including those that survived.

I know this is a bit like teammatch with survival mode on, but you cannot make only 2 teams. Also spawnkilling is a problem in regular maps, by putting spawnpoints on opposite sides it would be impossible to spawnkill. In survival mode it's annoying when people change teams to respawn.

I think a good name would be WAR...

Yeah, it would be a lot like Teammatch. Couldn't it just be a certain sub-mode for teammatch. Sounds like a good tid-bit.

So basically its a suggests michal to make it so you can change the number of teams on team match?

Yea, and with spawn points on opposite sides of the map.

well team number selection's been suggested, and alot of maps have different teams spawn at different points.

I also think a key element was the idea that the team with the last remaining player would get a point for their team, kind of like a cap in ctf. First team to n wins. I guess one could consider it similar to survival teammatch, but I like this more. It's simpler.

its basically survival in a nutshell.... except u get a point in team match i like that idea better same with in normal dm

Its not the same as a teammatch with survival because both teams don't spawn at the same time. I like how both teams would rush at eachother.

oh yes that do, right in the beginning especially.

perhaps survival should be changed so that it "is" WAR mode? Just have the teams be a selectable amount, then if you put survival on, it uses opposite corners and gives 1 point for a team survival....etc I really like the idea, w00t
