We've been playing Conquest on our 64 slot server since the game came out. There have been a number of requests for a different game type. So now, barring MGP moments, it is time to try a Rush Map rotation. Initially all original and Karkand maps will be running.
hmm, not sure about Rush as a game mode, but we need to give it a bit more time yet. As I see it rush doesn't work with only a few players. It's too easy for the defenders to take up strategic positions and camp, whilst the attackers have no choice but to move forward and in doing so give themselves away. With greater numbers of players I suspect it becomes easier for an attacker to be missed or simply for numbers to overwhelm if the attackers get their act together and move as a larger group. Plus squad play should come into things too if squads develop a good range of weaponry and skills, which is something we as a clan don't do very well.The question is therefore, how can we attract more players to our servers so in turn we have more people to shoot?
I made my suggestion last night

I said we need a mod to put naked women in the game

After tonight's annihilation my opinion is Rush might be a good gametype, but it's not my cup of tea. Sides need to be balanced with skills and weaponry. That is far more obvious than with Conquest. Conquest gives attackers potentially 5 places to get to, where Rush only has 2 and if they are lucky enough to get 1 of those then all attention is focused. If one team's skills, player ability weaponry and tactics are superior they will walk all over the other team. I accept that in real war that is the case, but here we do play for fun. I don't know what the answer is, but for me, Rush mode doesn't work.
