@Rumba_Lumba can you explain what you mean by Team Deathmatch Reverse Stock/Stock?
Also people rave on the 5th slot since Tank commented on its existence with something akin to "it's there for a reason".
Stock = you get a "stock" number of lives. (example, 10 lives). whoever gets to die more often to get to zero lives loses. team deathmatch scenario: Each team shares one pool of number of lives (example: 10 lives across 4 members).
Reverse stock = fastest to get a certain number of kills win (example: 10 kills). team deathmatch scenario: trojans, in total, gets killed 10 times during the match. doesn't matter if one player gets killed 10 times and the others zero times, or 2 players get killed 5 times plus other two zero times.
so they're really pushing for another god?
i saw the E3 demo, MP beta, and the recent demo files and haven't come across any other gods besides the 4. i don't know if i said this already, but there's 4 magics per god, or at least 4 for Ares, 4 for Hades, and 3 for Zeus and Poseidon. i don't know if Poseidon and Zeus will only get 3 magics each (given how powerful Zeus' magics are, save for that one magic where you turn invincible for 2.5 secs or whatever crap it was. EDIT: it was an item, sorry).
what makes me lean more on the latter is that i've heard an audio file where the announcer says "Two Lives Left". I was thinking it would be for FFA, but i saw a BTS vid where there was Trojans vs Spartans, and the scores were of single digits.
also, there will be 4 items per god. i don't know the exact descriptions at all.
for example, with Zeus i got
"BurstHeal, Shield, Dash, Shockwave"
in the filenames. i saw this before the MP beta. in hindsight, BurstHeal is for the item that restores some HP (the battlehorn of restoration?), Shield is of course the one where you become invincible for 2.5 seconds, Dash is of course the one everyone uses for Capture the Flag. so you guys can just imagine what Shockwave will be, or at least i hope it gives you an idea of what it does.
I'm thinking that the 5th God slot will be empty on lauch day. Todd Papy has even said recently that he still doesn't know what they're going to do with it. Future DLC, most likely.
I'd like Morpheus to be there. He took a big part in the God of War story and almost destroyed Olympus in God of War: Chains of Olympus.
