Dodgeball How To Thread - ND Please Make It Permanent

Wow!

I had to stop for a moment just to make this thread. If you haven't tried this Lab out, I highly recommend it. Truly awesome stuff. Naughty Dog, please, please make this a regular option for us. This is the most creative and unique mini-game experiences I've ever come across (it kinda reminds me of the old Tekken Volleyball days, but better).

Please show your support below if you would like ND to add this mode permanently.

For those who are curious, here are a few trivia fun facts for this Lab:

 

  •  Yes, Boosters are turned on (no kickbacks)
  •  Yes, you can toss grenades back
  •  You can pick up Bomb related Kickbacks (e.g. Mega, Cluster, Carpet...)
  •  Megabomb spawns on top of the right tower (when facing the net)
  •  Clusterbomb spawns on top of the left tower (when facing the net)
  •  Carpetbombs randomly spawn in the first row of grenades on the ground closest to the net (need to have this confirmed)

Good strategies to keep in mind include throwing grenades into the 5 squares along the enemies back wall to kill enemies as they spawn, throwing/bouncing grenades on top of the towers, throwing/bouncing grenades off the floating mini-ledges above to catch enemies camping by the net (post more strategies below)

 

You can leverage this Lab to help you level up boosters rapidly, think, explosive expert, explosive shell expert and regeneration among others (I leveled regen from base to gold in two matches)

I love the new lab the novelty of it wore off though but I do enjoy playing it in a party with people who knows what they are doing.

I don't think this need to be a new mode since they have already stated they will be releasing all the BMM for free soon, also we don't need new modes in general the player pool is segregated enough with DLC & the fact the player pool is small.

The only way this would ever be a permanent mode is if Naughty Dog did a "Minigame" mode, like you said. Of course, we already have the lab, so that is your minigame mode.

ND have said through one of their Q&As that they will be releasing Block Mesh Maps into the custom games, when? idk, they'll most likely say more about it during the upcoming 1.16 patch notes sometime in February
next time you have feedback on a block mesh map keep the discussion here: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/UNCHARTED-3-Drake-s-Deception/The-Block-Mesh-Map-Thread-DODGE... (we shouldn't have multiple threads on the same topic)

Just throw the grenades straight up in the air. Literally straight up. Or put a slight angle on it if you're near the back of your base. They land on their heads and explode almost instantly.
