Weekly Bulletin for 1/30 (cliffnote version 2v2 playlist, slight ctf changes, griftball origins & file share search)

Full Article

2v2 playlist looks pretty interesting a decent mix of game types and settings (at least that is what it appears to be). I glossed over the griftball stuff, was not my cup of tea.

I'm actually happy with the changes they are putting in for CTF as well.

As for Infinity CTF -- You will get betrayed right by your capture point by a teammate looking to get an instant ordnance drop...not likely to happen with a full party but the rewards are higher now than they were before to do it.

And it's about time Exile and Relay were added. Exile is larger, but if Ragnarok is there, it should be too. Not sure why they kept Settler out. Plays much smaller than it is.

Grifball.

More Grifball.

Holy shit, Grifball.

 

Doubles, three kinds: Infinity Doubles, CTF Doubles, and Doubles Pro.

 

Forge maps are now in Matchmaking.

Two specializations.

Forge Test is going away, but some of the maps are being incorporated.  It's coming back later, though (there's still hope for SUPERMEGALITH, Deep.)

Team Throwdown is coming before the ranked stuff releases.  That's the name for the competitive, ranked playlist.

 

Spartan Ops.

More Spartan Ops.

 

In-Game File Share.

Also, they're reducing flag return time to 15 seconds on smaller maps.

 

Looking forward to doubles pro (set loadouts, no AA's, no radar, modified maps).  Here's to hoping that's what team throwdown looks like.

Sounds like all good things! I just wish they would get rid of the "kill" and "escort" waypoints on flag carriers. It would make CTF so much better. I also don't know how I feel about automatic ordinance drops for flag carriers. Seems like it would put the opposing team on their heels too much. Might be huge for momentum swings.

I'm interested to see the modified versions of Haven, Abandon, Solace, and Exile that will be used for CTF.

Haven's pretty easy.  Flag spawns are where the Needler and Sticky Grenade currently spawn.  343 was stupid to not figure that out.  You can play Oddball evenly on that map again with those spawns.

Thank MLG for that.
