...is how much the 1.2 patch sucks. The 5 second respawn time ruined CTF.

5 sec respawn time is set by servers not the patch

Kleptic3530d ago

yeah...with 1.2 though they made all official servers 5 second respawns though...it used to be 3 I thought (a number you couldn't set on your own servers, it was just increments of 5)...

I wouldn't say it ruined anything...if anything I think it helped...charging into a base and killing a guy...grabbing a flag and getting to a jeep...only to have the guy you just killed immediately bakc and knifing you out of the Jeep was pretty chumpy...the short respawns was almost an incentive to base camp to get a high score...I can't tell you how tired I got of CTF when there would be 15 guys just running around their flag...and would have 1 occasional dude going for our flag...it just makes it a messy TDM where you have to travel across the map each time to find the enemy...

also though...I haven't had much time with the expansion yet...and I have to admit...I haven't had ANY fun with it either...everyone just wants to try the dropship...and I haven't seen 1 person use it effecitvely...the new map is great...the dropship will be cool if people learn what to do with it...

played 2 out of probably 14 CTF games where dropship was used effectively, but when both teams use it well, it becomes reallllly intense and fun. I say give it some time for the average player to get used to the idea of it. Dropships picking up flag carriers, dropping them off 1/3 across the map before being blown to bits or retreating, and dropships protecting bases with warhawks and tanks everywhere is just insane.

$7.99 is a bit steep for the add on.

Nice review. You should check this out if you haven't already.

Its a great weapon if you have a good team. flying it alone is nothing compared to having 6 people inside firing swarmer's, lifting a tank with 2 people insode while I unload firepower of gods wrath on the other team...
