Match Play needs another overhaul
« on: March 08, 2023, 01:21:57 PM »
Something needs to change with Match Play. It's just   :bhead

Here's a list of issues to make this easier.

1. 2v2 and up don't work. Tried to have some 2v2 duels the other day, it would not spawn us.

2. Once you do a 1v1 match, the map gets stuck and you cannot zoom in and out.

3. There is no where to just take off and fight with others. You can go into the area with the drones, but you cannot remove the drones. The Hurri 1s are like freaking Knats.

4. The scoring is stupid. You shoot down 10 planes and maybe Increase 30 points only to die once and lose 40 points. Doesn't make any sense.

5. No more canyon fights or anything like that.


So my point is, Match Play really needs another look at.

Can't we just make it simple?

1. Remove the scoring, it's absolutely pointless.

2. Have a separate area where furballer types can fight without the drones. Keep the air spawn though. All green chess peices if possible to avoid ganged. No bases for landing or vulching.

3. Keep the spawns and 1v1 thing. That's one of the most cool additions that was brought. Need to fix the 2v2 + matches though.

4. Make the drones fly to the planes actual capability and add more types of planes. The Hurris are tiring. This is actually great for practice but the Hurris are probably too tough for most players and again are like Knats.

5. Fix the map bug.

6. Allow players to roll down south where the canyons are so that people can have canyon fights again.



You cannot just tell people to "start a custom map". It's not that easy. Things have to be set up. The players have to download it. You can only really see it if the All tab is selected which no one sees. It would be far more beneficial to just have a server map ran by HTC that was free for people to quick fight and jump into a furball without having a clue what to do and just get to fighting. There needs to be a fun room to go to when the MA is not producing and the current Match Play just isn't working.

Thank you for the consideration!

As the former MPA association Discord host I say +10

The MPA could be so much better and it needs another look and overhaul.
