King of the Hill: Who Will Be Crowned?

I can't help but wonder about the upcoming gametype, King of the Hill. I understand how it will work from reading the rules, and I'm very excited about getting to play something new. But now I have to wonder about the strategy involved.

What weapons would be effective? Will it turn into Camp Barret, or will the hill be seated by frantic sprayers? And with a mere five seconds for a point, perhaps we'll see guerilla tactics used. Mini surfers that can snag points and be gone before anyone is the wiser.

I'm just playing with the thought and trying to think ahead. So what does everyone else think? Any idea for strategy? Feel free to pull from Halo experience if need be.

Post Scriptum:
I'm aware that this post seems premature, but honestly it could pay to give it thought now so that we don't flounder around when we get to implement this stuff.

Well mind you I'm leaning on the fact that "the joke" was part truth. While they denounced the issue for present, they did say that it was a sort of representation of "Michal's vision". Whatever the hell that really means.

I guess my point is that if we did get this new gametype in the future, what would it be like? WOuld it be good, bad or ugly?

it will die out, remember my words

What ever happend to point match?

And Rambo match is no fun, because everyone uses Barrets, witch kinda defeats the purpose.

and Inf is always fun.

I think this mode will do great. and i think i can smell King of the Hill turnys. hopfuly with some help from the people behind Soldat Events.

the whole confusion right before a new version is what makes this community worth being in :P

King of the hill seems like a nice game mode, especially if it's made with teams. I guess the balance would be allright. Barreters would probably have a hard time on servers with lot of people but so much easier on less crowded ones, as always. Possible problems with minigun surfers should be eliminated by some thought on behalf of the mappers so I don't think that would be much of a thingie.
