That's Correct Zones IS the Best Mode

I like zones because there is always action somewhere and lots of objectives on the map.  Fighting over the zone and its ability to let you spawn in there, for me, is the most fun in starhawk.   You have drop pods flying down, spawn beacons going up, hawks bombing the circle, turrets going wild, dudes hiding in bunkers, and just epic action.....thats why I love zones!

DM is better :smileytongue: You don't have to worry about all the A2G "pilots" trying to prove they're better by getting non-essential kills in an objective mode rather than play the mode correctly or go back to TDM.

IDK,

 

I really like Assault and Arena and CTF too.

 

G.G's last night by the way, you guys showed up and everyone on my team quit, I was looking around and seemed to be all alone then like 5 of you guys raid my base and steal my flag, LOL.

 

Thanks for switching teams and balancing the 3 (Me and 2 levels 10's or something)vs 7(Alphas and level 50's)

 

I will say Zones is my favorite mode for dust I think, that map is really bad for most other modes IMO.  (Depends slightly on loadout though)

I believe an objective mode usually consists of caputuring or defending a flag, base, zone, area, item, whatnot.  TDM you can argueable say "well the objective is to kill them all" but it just doesn't really fit the popular consensue of what an "objective mode" is.

Were you speaking of anyone in particular or just yourself?

Oh for the love of all that is good and right in the universe.  Can we stop spelling Assault as Assult?

Please fix the darn poll, it has "Assult".

There's an A in there people.

Every mode has an "objctive" or it wouldn't be sides. If there was no objective then we could all just chat with each other and be on the same team with nothing to do.

An objective mode has something unique about it that needs to be accomplished in order to win; CTF (including Gatekeeper) has flags that need to be captured, Zones has points that need to be held, Assault has bases that need to be attacked/defended. There is almost always an attacking side (or part of the team), and a defending side (or part of the team), and you need both to win (although that can be argued in the current CTF, where you often just need to have a better attacking side than the other team). You do not need to get a kill in order to win.

 

TDM and DM aren't objective modes because there is no "objective" added to the game to accomplish to win. All you do is kill other players, which is present in all modes. Yes, the object of the game is to kit the score limit, but that is all you have to do. There is no real attacking or defending side (how in DM...?); everyone has the same role (although Starhawk, with its RTS aspects, does blur that a bit in TDM, you still do not see real attacking and defending sides of the team in TDM, as bases can always be rebuilt and are not necessary to win)

Don't forget zones is pretty much anti-camper.

 

But you do get those intense last stands, especially on the lateral islands on conduit, cove, and junction (only way in and out, besides the air, is the 2 bridges).
