Q&A #5 – If you had to pick a non-standard sauerbraten mode (or map), what would you pick and why?

This time we asked a question directed to the upcoming frag evenings:

If you had to pick a non-standard sauerbraten mode (or map), what would you pick and why?
(think about hold / collect / regen / collect / ctf / multi team / mass insta / or a weird combination)

Here are the answers we collected:


<mefisto> regen of course :D, reason why is, very few people are aware of how much fun regen is, because they only see it played by regen pubnoobs who only know how to rocket spam. When played with people who know what they’re doing, it’s strategically such a complex mode

<Deluxe> mass insta! mass games can be cool, both effic and insta (not ffa) Also, less common maps i like are simplicity and sauerstruck.

<Frosty> personally i would like to see a little more hold action and some good old-fashioned ctf with pickups

<Ace> regen phosgene is the obvious answer, a true battle of spawnluck

<degrave> surive at zomie waves, remodex support it

<Teabag> some kind of multi team protect, to make more maps playable and allow us to play with more than 2 teams in another mode than capture


In the fight against monotony, what would you have answered? Let us know your shameful, nasty desires in the comments, below!

    tacteams and if this would be possible tactics ctf of course.
    It’s a nice and challenging mode for team (2v2), although the weapon balancing algorithm is way bs.

      I totaly agree. tacctf would be awesome. It will need a luck and skills. I hope that mode will be realesed one day or someone will make it in a server addon. ;)

        Yes and probably, the map I would pick is a Twinforts. Probably would be awesome map for this mode. :)

    capture with multiple teams of 3 or 4 players could be a lot of fun
    also ++++ classic ctf

    Agree with mefisto, frosty and lokio. Regen capture used to be so much fun when some of the old guys like Blindabuser and Noobalicious played. We’d actually use teamchat to tell routes to travel, which bases to attack, from where to attack… now I have to deal with fucking idiot teamwounders.
    Even if teams really didn’t like hold and ctf, playing it would probably make teams stronger. Same as if they played capture, they’d build team coordination.
    +4 lokio. :D

    Since assassin mode is no longer supported I’d have to say I am a sucker for capture modes. Regen can be great with the right people, but for some reason the original capture is my jam. I’m not very good at it but I simply love the dynamics. It makes you move from base to base plus there’s the added benefit of health boosts and quad damage. One of my favorite capture maps (regen too) would probably be nmp4 but alithia could be an awesome map too if more people played it.
