Battleplan 51: 6/22/17

Or a nod towards the addition of gear with flair.

Well of course we have a new one shot stun bug. We just got rid of the lumberjack blast one so this just took it’s place.

ETA 14 minutes from the time of this post

Don’t know about you system play on but pretty much everyone on ps4 that’s considered competitive falls into the category hobbit mentioned. We’re all die hards that will play regardless of the options available.

Except face off because ■■■■ face off (that’s more me than anything else though.)

What in the world? I loaded up the game and it gave me the little ad for Supercharge, but no Mini Match/Supercharge queue???

Good questions. Mini Match is a queue with voting. Supercharge WILL be one of the options, and the other two choices are split between our other four modes.

Quick Match should be voting on all the time, and is now only Incursion and Meltdown. If you want to play the other modes, then mini-match will be your best bet. Hope that helps!

So if I understand that right it means that capture and face off are now strictly 3v3 outside of private games, correct?

So QM is now pubstomp queue, try your luck in 3v3?

This configuration makes no sense.

How do you figure quick match to be pubstomp?

Full teams have literally nowhere else to go now.

Not sure why it’s still called quick match, but I’ll take it. Thank you very much @JoeKGBX. :grinning:

Well I think this is best solution presented so far. Solo/Duo failed (at least on PS4). This actually allows people that don’t want to fight full teams to have a surefire way to not fight them.

Plus I think 3v3 in Face Off and Capture fixes the number one issue of those game modes: Spawn Camping.

In the end this all just theoretical. I’m actually going to play the 3v3 modes before I give my final opinion on whether or not this was a good idea. But I’m feeling optimistic.

@joeKGBX @jythri
1)That’s an awesome answer but do you realize how unclear this was in your initial Battleplan post? Can you uhh - revise your initial Battleplan post drastically to say that QM has been changed to only Incursion and Meltdown plus is now able to vote?

  1. And also clearly say in the initial BP post that Capture and Face Off have been strictly moved to 3v3?

Or am I blind and it does say that somewhere. Surely you wouldn’t just leave some vital piece of information like this out of the initial Battleplan post…

I think all the above queue changes are definitely a major improvement btw…although it will stink having to deal with boldur and kelvin again in incursion!

I give most of the credit to @Tokesy97 and @SnekvaPrime for this AMA. Tokesy was the one most involved in setting up the AMA and Snekva was the one who took over asking the questions after Tokesy had to leave. I also want to thank the other Discord staff for making sure that everything was running as smoothly as possible during the event. It wasn’t a flawless event and I think we could still improve upon it. We’re taking people’s feedback on the event and are open to suggestions on how we can improve things for the next one.

I also want to thank @jythri for dropping by and answering all of the questions asked of him. We had a lot of questions and he stuck around for all of them.

Just here to say THANKS for the extra bank pages and gear loadouts. 10/10 would literally buy again.

It makes way way more sense to have capture and face off turned into 3v3 permanently for so many reasons. This is the healthiest landing spot for both of these modes imo
