Can we give at least one of these a shot?
I thought about multi team TBDs but the factor I always ran into is that some of the teams would be at a disadvantage due to where their base was located. Now I realize that the disadvantage could be mitigated through various map designs or power-ups, but the balance becomes increasingly harder. You either end up with bases in the center of the map, basically like 4 in a row, in which the center bases are obviously easier to bomb (get hit from both directions). Or you have altitude differences in which some bases are up high and some are low in which case the lower bases are obviously easier to bomb. If you have a good idea of how to make this work then let me know.
As for team FFA, I think we have all been calling for Team Death Match for quite some time. I think that Lam has it on his list of things to do, but I can't be sure.
