NO! It has to be an even number.

6 players + 20 kill cap = perfect

Too bad it won't happen due to some bizarre ND excuse ("technical difficulties" and/or lack of interest).

Also, it's very annoying the fact that the game finds 2-3 players (with DLC on) and yet, the match never starts (late joiners could always fill the spots).

I don't see why everyone's opting to change how power weapons spawn in FFA. We should have it REMOVED. COMPLETELY. No late spawning, no spawning, out of existence in FFA. Why?

 

People can easily just pick up a power weapon and quickly just make the most amazing freaking top-score ever. I've done it before. I hogged a T-Bolt, got 5, then grabbed a special pistol, then got 4. 9 kills, and the next highest is freaking 2. Feels great, but in the long run, OH so cheap.

I don't know...I am pretty **bleep** good at FFA with the power weapons mixed in.  Maybe cause I get them first?

 

It would be less stressful without them, and less fun IMHO.

RPGs and Hammers are for scrubs, the sniper, shotgun, and PAK90 actually take some skill to use and isnt just free kills.

Re: Remove Power Weapons from Free For All!

I wrote a long thread going over three simple but AWESOME fixes that would save FFA forever (barring the other issues that plague the whole game, mind you). It was lost in the transition from Jive to Lithium, but here's the list:

1. Increase the goal limit to 20 instead of 15. FFA ends too quickly and some people want a chance to get a Rampant in this mode Smiley Wink

2. Improve the spawns. This can be fixed by reducing the max player limit from 8 to 6, which could also make matchmaking quicker. An actual spawn algorithm improvement wouldn't hurt either, but U3's team is dwindling in numbers (probably due to U4, for all we know Smiley Wink) and they might not have the programming resources for that at this moment.

3. REMOVE POWER WEAPONS. They only seem to favor one or two lucky people in the match and screw over everyone else. ND changed 3TDM spawns to make power weapons in that mode more fair, now they need to get rid of power weapons completely in FFA because simply put, there's no way to have 6-8 people spawning by themselves on each map with any sort of fair equal opportunity to reach the PWs in time. It becomes a luck-based mode, and who actually likes it when a multiplayer mode becomes luck-based? Nobody, that's who.

Well that pretty much sums it up but... don't you think 20 kills is a bit high for new players? 15 limit is fine.
