Commander Round Table - 6 Player vs 1v1 & 2v2

Postby Cobra Commander » Mon Dec 21, 2015 8:16 pm

This is a serious discussion so I have posted under this moniker and not Christmas Commander

The Commander believes that the demise of 6 Player Deafult and Totally Random has resulted in less powerful new players emerging, a standardisation of playing styles and tactics that have reduced variety, unorthodoxy and innovation thus overall creating less variety, speed and fun plus overall competition in Defcon.

Discuss whether or not you agree with Commander or please put forward your case that 1v1 and 2v2 have their own merits that outstrip the learning curve, tactics and playing styles produced by 6 Player games

I am very interested in the very first ever "Commander Round Table".

"Serious Discussion" on "Serious Topic".

In other news the servers have been dead today. Everyone out doing Christmas Shopping in the 21st C or something?

Well, I think the opposite..I think that 2vs2 is the most valuable innovation of defcon and finally the most interesting kind of match (if played like in ladders, with a shared team strategy). But sure ffa needs to be re-interpreted.

Your ideas relating to 6 player default and total random does not fall on deaf ears. Group 6 will discuss the addition of said servers and get back to you with our decision.

6 players default is the root and it was much fun basing backstabbing tactics.

It heartens me to see that old and legendary players reemerge to celebrate the superiority of CLASSIC Defcon - the 6 Player Default FFA. I felt alone for a while there :)

Count me in the roundtable!
