Express; DLC Moshpit; Hardcore DLC Moshpit

Hello-



I am working on the following updates for the next major Playlist revision and need some feedback.



=====Express=====

30 second lobby timer; no game mode that has a respawn timer; small maps; No Ghost; No Second Chance allowed.



Using the above basics, please confirm the fastest playing game modes and map combinations.



Please express as such to make it easy for me to follow you:



Nuketown; Dem

Nuketown; TDM

Firing Range; Sab



=====DLC Moshpit=====

Moshpit of game modes using only DLC maps.



In your opinion, what are the best playing game modes on DLC maps. For example, if you just love Domination on Drive-In, please express as:



Drive In; Dom



The first must be a DLC map, but can be any DLC from any of the 3 packs released so far, and it does not have to be all of them. If you are not a fan of CTF on Kowloon, then just don't include it in your list. It's not a problem.



=====DLC Hardcore Moshpit=====

For your Hardcore fans, the same as above only using hardcore game mode variants.



In your opinion, what are the best playing hardcore game modes using only DLC map variants. Just like the above, please express as a map and game mode combination. For example:



Kowloon; Hardcore SD



For these DLC moshpits, I really want the fan favorite combinations of maps and game modes.



I am also making changes to the Competition playlists, as well as the Hardcore category of playlists.



I am going to sticky the thread for 3 days and then lock it at the end of the week. We have to do this stuff far ahead of when you actually get to see it.

Black ops should've had an express game mode from day one but I'm glad it's finally being implemented... Just leave sabotage out of it!

And it's begun.

If you want a true 'express' playlist, remove all killstreaks.

If you are to make the conclusion that Ghost slows the game down, then why not remove all killstreaks?

That would give lesser incentive to camp, which would speed the game up a hell of a lot more than banning Ghost.



Edit: and you should remove snipers from an 'express' playlist as well.

Same mentality involved.

The only way to use it 'appropriately' is the same way you accuse Ghost of slowing down the game, so really, it's only fair.

Re: Express; DLC Moshpit; Hardcore DLC Moshpit

I posted at 2am and must've misread your post. Didn't notice it was only DLC-maps.

Here is the "correct" list.





Kowloon. HC DOM. HC CTF

Berlin Wall. HC DOM. HC SABO

Zoo. HC CTF HC DOM

Discovery. HC CTF HC DOM

Stadium HC CTF

Hazard HC CTF. HC DOM

Lol just have a keg on hand next to you.



@Vahn:

Obviously Nuketown anything will be fast.

Also, would you be willing to do the smaller boundary maps like in Wager matches? Because then you can use almost any map in the express mode.
