I decided to remove the interlinked economy/score system as it was too complex

I like multiple objectives, and the need for teamwork. (Which I could have read about in less time that it takes to watch a video.)

This should of been discussed during the multiple years of alpha, I honestly think it's too late considering how long we're waiting for a map and ranked, the devs have a lot on their plate without also having to brainstorm and playtest a game mode that may or may not work. By the time we have we would theoretically get this mode the game will be dead, or we will go back to Stopwatch TO if Invasion is TO that is.

Secondly I don't think eco rounds will be spectator friendly because:

1.I'm going to assume the eco weapons are 1handers, and 1 handers will rely on morph feint/feint stab mixups which will be aids to play vs and aids to watch.

2.Most of Mordhau's gameplay has been tuned around the 2handers in general and I think eco rounds will force the devs to balance the game drastically differently. As it stands what point cost should a bastard sword be in the current meta? It could literally outperform any weapon, but I guess team engagements change that dynamic.

I think hostage rescue would be a better format, could even call it princess rescue lmao

The comp mode that ends up succeeding (if any) will most likely come from a mod, which players can make/test themselves

1.I'm going to assume the eco weapons are 1handers, and 1 handers will rely on morph feint/feint stab mixups which will be aids to play vs and aids to watch.

As opposed to drag mix ups, which are worse for spectators

2.Most of Mordhau's gameplay has been tuned around the 2handers in general and I think eco rounds will force the devs to balance the game drastically differently.

Not really, larger weapons are generally more useful than shorter weapons. The game is still functional without everyone having 2h

yasssssssss i love it. i was also thinking about how there could be an interesting 5 v 5 CSGO style game mode in this game genre and this seems to be a very good conclusion to that concept

Has Giru already disagreed with the idea?

lol does he have beef with stouty. giru plays csgo (poorly) so i imagine he would like the format

It's just that you could always rely on Giru to disagree with Stouty. I don't know why. Or maybe I got the wrong impression because of a small sample size.
