The Premium content week has now ended. During the last week, out of the five new gametypes, Domination was by far filling up the most matches, while Attack & Defend was the second most popular. Red Rover was third, and Harvester and 1-Flag CTF traded places at fourth and fifth. The results of our Facebook poll showed a similar result, with 73% of the people who voted for their favorite game mode choosing Domination.
If you haven't checked out the new Start a Match yet, our Standard and Premium users can kick the tires on a non-functional demo to see the depth of settings available, while Pro users can create and play on matches of their own twisted creation. Start a Match can be accessed through "Play Online," under the "Home" menu. Response to our Start a Match changes have been overwhelmingly positive, with six times more people playing on Pro matches than in previous months. If you've had trouble creating Pro matches in the past, now is a great time to give it another shot!
Along with re-enabling Premium matches, we're also introducing today for the first time ever, Sampler Matches. These are Domination matches running Chemical Reaction, and are only available in select locations (Texas, United Kingdom, Germany, Argentina, Australia, and Russia) in limited quantities. We expect to mix these matches up from time to time, so be on the lookout for matches labeled "Sampler" in your match browser!
It was great seeing everybody checking out all the new content this week, and we're looking forward to continued fragging on our Domination Sampler matches!
