    This is the petition for returning normal gaming mode on Turbine servers! It has been changed recently and now it turned into a pointless team deathmatch mode. I think it has deducted a lot from the game, there is nothing to be reached on those servers now! I'm sure it will kill those servers in a while. Stop killing your own servers! Return normal game mode on Turbine!

    I think he means no round end as such, so there's no point capping, it just becomes frag farming.

    (capping was stupid anyway b/c it's 24/7 and you get idiots who go Spy - Bonk Scouts that do nothing else but go for intel so I actually prefer it like this)

    If you wanted regular capping join a casual server?

    Noone at casual can play Turbine. And skill level is lower then here. I liked it on Skial. 32 or 24 no matter. It was fun. Now its not!

    It does not matter. Those stupid asses were have to change class and try to play "normal" or leave the server eventually.
    Now it will kill Skial Turbine servers. I'm sure of it.

    No cap limit. No round end. I think even no more scrambles.
    Its not fun anymore.

    Not gonna say I speak for most of the players, but I think the general mindset of the regulars on turbine is to just hold mid and kritz pound the other team into oblivion all while ignoring capping.

    We only had a cap limit during daytime and more than 20 players. I saw the server empty out when scouts ran and capped intel while everyone else was playing for frags so I removed the cap limit entirely. You can still cap if you want.

    Average game lasts for about an hour. You can be fed up frags during this period. While you completely removed the goal from the game now. I played almost every evening and we had great games. Now i cant see myself playing it. This game mode without the goal encourages mindless staggering around, nothing more. I mean, why to defend if there is no goal, why try and play if there is no goal, why to play engineer if there is nothing to defend, why try different tactics and loadouts if there is no goal? Its pointless.

    Try to play normal? If that's the case, go play Casual. You've played on that server for a while now, like I have, you've seen idiots go consistently for intel and do absolutely nothing else which contributes to helping the Team. That's what sucked the fun out of it, quite honestly I prefer it like this (as mentioned) and the servers will not die out b/c of a small change.

    People don't like change, it's a common fact so don't get your panties in a twist and chillax. (if things do go out of proportion Bottiger would deal with it either way)

    Scrambles do occur still btw.

    Oh, c’mon its not a goal. Everything has to have a goal, something you can achieve. It gives you motivation. Look at the games nowadays - every single game has achievements. Its not random. By removing the goal you remove the motivation to play. By removing the victory conditions you also removing emotions from it - sweet victory after a 2hour struggle or a bitter taste of defeat when you gave it all to the game. Also you dont have to become better to see yourself on the MVP list some day and it is also about emotions. All this makes the gameplay gray and insipid.

    Look, I get it, you're probably an old school player who has gotten used to it for so long now that when small sparks of change happen you go ballistic and immediately want it reverted. Not everything has to have a goal, some people just play to have fun and that's basically it or you'll get others who play just to frag like a mad man but at the end of the day it's just a server where people play with one another and leave after a while (then come back and repeat). You really believe a server would die out just b/c capping has no point now? You give up too easily, have a bit of faith.

    "gray and insipid." (reminds me of home when the rain falls, but when the light is out it's truly beautiful)

    It just were my favorite servers. I love Turbine, I love Skial. I had been coming to one of those almost every evening and i knew i’m going to have fun. It just does not feel that way anymore. I got your point though. Hope you got mine.

    I understand you, don't worry.

    Just for now see how it goes, if things do change like I said then Bottiger would handle it with ease.

    You can still cap if you want. It just won't end the round. People that want to play for objectives still can.

    Caps used to be normal during prime time hours and when the server had over 20 players. If you never saw regular caps, then the server was outside prime time or had under 20 players.
