Figured I would come back and bump it until I wait another year and do so again.
Eh didn't want to wait as long to see if it was ever added. Figure more people that see this means more support so here it goes again.
I agree. They should add at least one of these gametypes soon, as they were adding the entity support about a few months ago. (why else would they do that?) Like TheMuffinMan said, I hope it is Harvester, it`s such a unique gametype, and probably creates more suspense during gameplay (more skulls, more risky) than any other gametype.
I always wondered why Cobalt Station didn`t recieve One Flag / Harvester support in the aforementioned update (it still got Overload support btw). Sure, it`s the only asymmetrical CTF map in QL, but that doesn`t mean it can`t support those two gametypes. You could put the white flag / obelisk where the RL is or RG is, either way would work. It could make very interesting games.
- TA gametype support on most maps lacking it. (sponge says it's because bots break without it, I think that's just a cover-up!)
- Gametype info on main ingame menu for all 3 TA gametypes.
I got a strong feeling we'll see one of them added this year sometime. But hey, what do I know! If the community has it's way then they'll add Defrag instead, which would be a shame since the Defrag community is still quite active and therefore if you like Defrag then just go play it and quit asking for it to be added to QL. Team Arena on the other hand, was pretty much dead to begin with.
bumping this once again as every time I do the idea gets nothing but support.
Sadly no support from last bump but here I am again as I saw giantbomb do a TNT of unreal so it made me want to play some Quake.
The TA gametypes are a tradition in Q3A. Even most TA-haters probably found the gametypes for the mod enjoyable, and QL would benefit highly from having them introduced.
I hope we get at least one of them next update, since that is going to be the 10th update marking the one-year anniversary of QL going gold.
QL hasn't even gone iron or aluminium, nevermind gold!
Unfortunately the dev team whole-heartedly believes that adding more gametypes will split the community. Where I'm from the situation is that QL is CA and duel servers, and every now and then one of the other gametypes. Adding more gametypes will only add more options for what to play instead of crappy CA, that's all. No splits, just more options for people like me who crave variety and strategic games, and who want to see this game become more interesting and playable than it is right now.
