Long Games

14 replies 251 views Edited Oct 14, 2012

Anything above 20 min is too long. A 45 minute DM is the worst thing ever. Here's why. In the beggining, I do good. I get a good score, until the middle, where start getting killed a lot more. I get so bored, that I don't have a sense of urgency and awareness anymore and I get killed by simple mistakes. I got killed in the exact same way over tree times in this 30 or 40 min DM. I went 170ish to 77. I think this is terrible. Why? Because I died 70 times. If it wasn't so long and boring, I would have a good score. Another reason is that when I get a lot of XP at the beggining of a match, I hate when I have to wait 20 more min to earn it. I just want to take my sh!t and leave. This can be solved by having shorter time limits. I think they should disable them in TDM and DM only. In Zones and Assault, there's a lot of fighting over bases and they can keep going back and forth, which is good. I don't know about CTF anymore because of the new rule.

They nerfed the 5 min matches in the last update.  The 2 player games is still there, but its shaded out.

I never host servers, and I never see 5 min games. That would be a good idea if you weren't being a d!ckhead about it.

I agree 100%, insidious. 45 is too long and there is still too great of a chance for the game getting lopsided. Then players quit instead of being br for 45 minutes, worsening the balance. 15-20 minute games are fine. Most people can bear a bad game if they know it will not be too much longer until a new game.

Thanks mule :smileyhappy:

It's only with DM, TDM, and Bad Zones and CTF games. Still, 45 is too long. Getting BRd 10 min into the game is the worst thing ever. The quit penalty is useless, because people care more about K/D than W/L and skill score (at least I do). I lost my blue star and now I have a brown box. But I just might start hosting my own servers when I wanna play DM/TDM.

30 min. should be the max. I do think even that is too long for DM and TDM.

Exactle, i think TDM/DM should be limited to 25, Zones, Assault, and Gatekeeper to 30 or 35, but not 45
