Default New game modes

Hi.
I thought about new ideas for game modes.
in every idea I will explain-
A.how to play the mode
B.basic mode configuration (for map makers)

"Defence/attack-ball" mode-
Will be played with a blue ball and 1 red goal.
the red team will have to defened their goal while the blue team only have to attack.
After each goal the team will switch place- in this example- the blue team will be on def and the red will attack
Every turn will have limited time. if the attackers didnt score in the time limit- its count as a point for the defence team.
When 1 team score 6 points- the game is over.

basic map requirement (mode configuration):
-1 team X ball spawner
-1 team Y goal
-2 spawn points- one for each team

~the game will be saved as dab_mapname

"CTF" mode-
Capture The Flag-
Will be played with a regular ball but without goals.
The team who can keep the ball in their color (red/blue) for X time- wins.

basic map requirement (mode configuration):
-1 netural ball spawner
-2 spawn points- one for each team

~the game will be saved as ctf_mapname

"juggernaut" mode-
Will be played a ffa with ball. everytime a players hld the ball he is the juggernaut.
in order to get the ball you have to kill him. (he wont pass it to you )
the player that will hold the ball for X time wins.

basic map requirement (mode configuration):
-at least 1 netural spawn point.
-one netural ball spawner

~the game will be saved as jug_mapname



"Race" mode-
Will be played with hoops as checkpoints.
Like ffa, there wont be teams and every player will get his own color.
players will be able to kill each other, and every time a player dies, he will respawn in the previous hoop.

basic map requirement (mode configuration):
-at least 1 hoop (end of the road. every other hoop is a check point)
-netural spawn points (number of hoop +1 starting spawn)

~the game will be saved as race_mapname

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think new game modes will contribute to the game and will replace some old, unplayed modes as TDM (is there even a server running TDM?) and even if only one of the above will become an official mode it will be awesome...


thanks,
Bio

Note:
take each mode as a different suggestion.
Even if you liked only one of them please comment.
You can suggest improvment ideas if you want.

I like the ideas.
CTF, DAB and Jug would be great. The race mode would be more chaos than anything else, i guess.

Capture The Flag seems the most probable of these suggestions.

dab sounds like 1dm meets ball, which I can't see a lot of people going for since ballers tend to enjoy spawning more than once per round.

juggernaut would require an ffa mode that allows for a ball and records individual ball possession, which (I believe) currently is unsupported

race mode sounds like a lot of fun, but would require the developers to construct, implement, and test a "checkpoint" mechanism at each hoop.


I actually really like your idea for Capture the Flag. Would just require slight modification of ball maps to remove the goals (1dm/TDM maps would work here). Maybe increase respawn times to that of TBD as well. A measurement of team possession is already in place, so this game mode really wouldn't require a great deal of work to introduce

just want to make out the point about DAB-
you can spawn many times. the issue is about the atk\def teams.

lets say im in the def team.
i can spawn as many times as i want and my ONLY goal is to defened.
how?
since there is no other goal than mine, it will be stupid to run with the ball to the other side, cause ill get killed.
instead, the "defence" team's goal is to push the ball away from their goal until the time limit is over.

JUST DEF.
if you die- RESPAWN

Pretty sure zero new game modes will ever get implemented.

Good ideas though.

WE need to do something if WE want new official modes.
I cant do it by myself. no one will listen to a single man, but if loads of players ask for it, it will have a bigger affect

It could be fun to talk about new game modes, but it just doesn't worth it for Nimbly to design one.

Wrong, it will have the exact same effect.

And still- Dont be so pessimistic...
most of the people I asked (here + in-game messeges) actually like those ideas.
If we will just say "nah it will never be officail" or "nimbly game will never do it".

Then it won't work...

So if most of the community want "CTF" mode, then we shouldn't give up so fast...
