They should create a 5v5 Social Playlist or use the QuickPlay playlist for Social Slayer, CTF, Assault, Oddball, Breakout?, and then move Grifball into that with the option to vote on game mode and map. It would help with introducing new players into the main/popular game modes as well as move lower populated playlists from cluttering the selection and giving them new life.Mat Locke wrote:Too many playlist period. That is the main problem and those who actually want a social experience of the game to play with their friends without tryharding in ranked are forced to the only comparable playlist BTB. Why not go back to having a social slayer and social obj and then having ranked versions. I don't enjoy having to hop into ranked when i only really play the game a few times a month. I want the core experience without having to jump into a ranked match.
With the number of playlist you seem to be just fragmenting the player base even further. Use some of those other playlist as like a weekend special here and there. With the way the game sits now, I just don't see myself playing the game more than a couple times a month as there seems to be no real focus on what can be done to build the playerbase back up and just throwing out playlist to appease small groups of players. Simplifying makes the game far more accessible rather than just a quickplay playlist. Go to 4-5 social with an additional rotating playlist and 4-5 ranked play list.
