So I was having this conversation with the Hardcore sub-community (special interest group!) before PSN went down and totally mucked up our schedules about adding some more hardcore game modes variants.
Now that this is out of the way and the PS3 has the latest updates, I want to get back to this idea.
Back then, I was vibing on one idea proposed called Hardcore Flags and Hardcore Bombs. Now, like anything, this means different things to different people.
First, let me tell you what I think these are.
Hardcore Flags - a moshpit of all flag based game modes, only with hardcore rules applied (no hud, lower health, etc).
Hardcore Bombs - a moshpit of all the bomb based game modes, except Sabotage (so Search and Demo), only with hardcore rules applied (no hud, lower heatlh, etc).
Keep in mind that the simpler the requirements the more probability this has of happening. If you start giving me a list of Perks or Weapons you also want banned, you lower the probability I can get it done or will want to do it.
It would also be good to get a map list together. Think of this as what maps you DO NOT want in each of the above playlists rather than a list of maps that you DO WANT. This is easier for us to manage. Playlists should have lots of maps "in general" but we
are happy to take "a few" out that just don't play well for the game modes in them.
As always, I am just going to ignore any off-topic replies at best and ban trolls at worse. I'm not trying to be a jerk about it, but the Forums are very time consuming and I have a very limited window of time to get feedback from the hardcore community about
this, but since it's been over a month since we discussed it any real way, I need a "refresher" on where we were heading with this idea.
Would be good to hear from some of the advocates / champions of #morehardcoregamemodes. I'm sure I will remember your forum or Twitter name.
