    I think Oddball is a good mode if people actually play it. Most of the time people will avoid the ball and the ball carrier in favour of getting kills with x weapon type for the challenge and doing their own thing.


    I was on a mongoose picking up the flag carrier earlier at the enemy base, together with a few other team mates. Some bellend jumped on the back of the mongoose stopping the flag carrier getting on, so the other players all started trying to melee him to death (I’m not sure if you can actually do that but it looked like he was taking damage from melee whilst on the vehicle). Frustrating.

    Oh god, this just reminded me of a CTF game I played last night. I got the flag and a teammate was waiting in a Warthog.


    Now I *think* you can get in the passenger seat holding the flag, right?  I didn't realise that at the time, so the only thing I could think of doing in the heat of the moment was to jump onto the gun platform and try to balance on it as it drove off. Needless to say, it didn't work out.


    Absolute eejit. Glad I wasn't on voice chat.

    I think even on games with objectives if one player in your team is decimating the other team you’d have an easier time achieving the objective. I think the only game mode where this would not work is controlling the zones. 

    Yep, a good point. And there are definitely times when I'm happy to play a more supporting role, especially in Oddball or CTF.

    Yeah they shouldn’t be tracked in objective games and like you said it’s always been the case. In Halo 2 you’d always get someone from the other team in the post game lobby saying that although we won we were shit as they got 27 kills like it mattered in that game type 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Isn't part of the problem that the K/D ratio seems to have a greater influence on points scored within games (and therefore placing in the ranking table) than actually taking care of the objectives?  I've had a number of games where I've had loads more time with the Oddball, or captured more zones/flags than other players, but place less well because I'm not getting as many kills in the process.

    I've played plenty of stronghold matches - though I tend to go for ranked rather than quick play.


    It's the best game mode IMO.


    I really like Stronghold too.  Maybe it's because I only join games on my own, without voice chat, which means I'm always on the back foot with something like CTF if the other team are working together.  But because Stronghold splits the focus across three areas and always keeps you moving around it feels like it's less predictable and harder for a team to dominate.

    There's no skill required at the mo, as the faster car always wins in a straight line.

    That's going to be the case more often than not, but a slower car can win - for example if the faster one keeps hitting trees or whatever.  In FH4 there was an achievement for beating someone in a head-to-head that had a car much better than yours (i.e. a certain number of levels higher).

    Astroneer provides an easy way to get the Top 10 Co Op achievement. Start a new game, open the menu and change outfit. That's it.

    As someone who dislikes having incomplete games on his xbox gamercard, this month's selection for the Top 10 challenge is a nightmare ... full of bloated, online co-op, open world, second-job games that I would never go near. I guess I'll have to do without those 2500+ points this month.

    Astroneer, play via cloud gaming. Takes 2 minutes.

  7. I found Poseidon's dash boon (Tidal Dash) to be really good for clearing the Temple of Styx rooms, especially with Typhoon's Fury, which does extra damage for slamming foes against a wall. One time I also had Second Wave, which slams them a second time.


    I don't think it's possible to get the Satyr Sack 1st time (I think I got that from watching a 'devs react to speed run' type video).  It's always the 2nd or 3rd path.

    Has anyone done the Kennedy INtl landing challenge?


    My landing gear don't open unless I do it in the first few seconds, and then when I go to land the voice screams 'landing gear' when they're already down

    That happened the first time I tried it, I guess I left it too late. Ended up trying to ditch in the water, Sully-style.

  9. It's a really odd point, that completely ignores some really important reasons for choosing to eat out.


    You could make that argument about any type of food (that you can make a 'better', cheaper version at home), yet people still want to eat out.
