I play skirmish only because I could care less about going after bases. I am all about the randomness of the hunt. And now there are no skirmish only servers from FM that I can play in. Now seasoned players and newbies alike are complaining their teams are not helping them capture and that they are just flying around and killing people and not helping "cap".
Well some of us dont want to capture, we want to play skirmish like we always do. Either that or we will just ignore the capture objective and just go for the kills. It is simple logic.
I would like to see skirmish only, battle only and assault only servers so that people who like particular modes of game play can play there without having constant whining from the team players who want to capture some base. I do not care too much either way because If there are no skirmish servers i will just ignore the captures 90% of the time and just go around shooting people since I know exactly where they are going to be heading towards... Just makes it all the more easier for me to get my kills. Not as much fun though because I like the hunt, the randomness of looking for someone rather than just sitting down with my beer and crisps waiting for them to come to me.
Can we get some skirmish servers and perhaps other game mode dedicated servers? Sometimes I am in the mood to capture/hold the base but that is rare. When i feel like it I go to those servers. However 95% of the time All i care about is kills.
You can set up a dedicated server to play whatever modes and maps you like. If other people think like you then the server will be busy. Shattered Horizon is primarily a control point game though. The official servers offer all game modes and all maps in rotation.
