  • Re: Make Sabotage Ranking System More Clear

    We're just talking through ideas. I mean, after all it is a forum.

    played a game of Sabotage, it ended in a loss since I had no clue what I was doing since I was so used to the good ol' days of beta where you had two lanes and area's for traps and could fight the other players. Do they plan on bringing that back as its own game type cause I'd love that. If not, that saddens me as those where the good times.
    The developer stance is that Siege, the game mode you're referring to, will not be returning. However, other game modes that are PvP based may return - we've seen that with Sabotage. They left the potential for there to be game modes after sabotage too, but I imagine it'll be awhile if that's the case (given sabotage just came out this week)

    So to give you a very concise answer: No, Siege will not be returning.

    AFAIK, there were a number of factors. But in the end, Robot had to choose between game modes because they conflicted with each other (If we do this for Siege, it'll mess up survival. And vice-versa). They looked at currently active stats for survival vs. siege, and survival won. Given that survival was in an awful state then (seriously, I couldn't play it myself it killed me) that's saying alot.

    I can't tell you for sure what killed it, whether it be premade groups of 5 (some argue this), the complexity of it to pick up for new players (my argument), that defense "wasn't fun" (some others argue this), or whatever. But in the end, it performed worse than survival, so survival stayed and siege didn't.

    Even until the end of our universe?
    One can assume.

    I played a bunch in BETA, I payed a bunch in for heroes and such and decided I'd play after launch, after they did the big marketing push and got alot of new peeps in. I log in today, buy up all my favorite old heroes and for the life of me couldn't find siege mode.
    Siege was removed back in December. Specifics of why the mode didn't perform 'up to snuff' are up to interpretation, but basically they compared siege and survival (they had to choose one, as they were fighting each other in content) and survival came out as the more played mode. With that, they got rid of siege and focused on survival.

    With that in mind, Sabotage is a more relaxed version of PvP (kind of more Team v Team, not so much Player v Player) - you should check it out.
  • Re: Dem Bolt-Ogres

    AFAIK, the devs like that rift rush stays on after something passes by the rift. It encourages you to build a killbox that isn't literally right around the rift. Personally I just wish they'd tone down the ogre run just a little bit. I'm ok with the running, but since when did ogres set the world record for the 100m dash?
