View Full Version : TDM Games are too SHORT!

I find that all of the TDM games finish in a matter of 3-5 Mins!
Hey, I want a longer game :P

You could increase the score limit; that would elongate the games :D

3-5 minutes if you're solo queuing, ~2 minutes if you're pub stomping with a group. Longer matches would be awesome!

Since the games pop pretty fast, it's not a huge issue. That said, I wouldn't mind higher scoring limits or blanket reduction in damage for PvP only.

Blanket reduction in damage only slows down your experience gain, short queues are fine, it's not like wow where some servers you sat for ages, that is awesome. But I would rather see longer matches and greater rewards, xp, keycodes, scrip, than a reduction in damage, that would just slow kills down and you get xp for kills. You never want to hinder the user, but rather, make their experience more fruitful, especially in a game that is not monthly sub, those games, they like to make things take longer just to yank some time out of you hoping to get another 15 dollars, aka running from place to place, no fast travel.

Normal matches should be around 10-15 minutes.
Shadow wars should be around 20-30 minutes.

Experience from kills is negligible. At higher ego levels it's completely irrelevant.

@Scorpio: I don't think they need to be that long. Being as short as they are, they're very casual-friendly or good for short play sessions. I'd hate to see that completely changed. Just a little longer would be fine. The low ends of your ranges (10 minutes or 20 for Shadow War) would be about perfect.

I'm 2068 EGO, it takes me about 6-8 games to level depening on how I do. The XP from kills is most definitly not completely irrelevant, as I level faster than the people I queue with if my score is better on average.

Edit: post sounded too EGOtesticle, this is better

Well, I think shadow wars should be 10-15 minutes also, I wouldn't play Shadow wars if it was that long. Too much time.

Yeah the games being quick tailor to players who don't have much time, and that's totally understandable. It takes all kinds.
