    TDM and Conquest seemed to be the only modes that really got played very much in WFC. Has anyone tried the CTF or Headhunter modes yet? I haven't but I will probably try those out next just in case they die out quickly. I'm mainly a Conquest player. I think I figured out that I like it for two main reasons.....it gives you lots of XP and dying (which I have a tendency to do quite a bit in some matches!) doesn't affect the team as much as in something like TDM.

    Everybody just plays every game mode like it's TDM anyway.

    Well the at least one of the basic objectives of any mode is "kill the guys on the other team". Some modes just have other objectives added.

    I've never been a fan of CTF in any game but I tried a round (for the achievement and failed). It wasn't much fun to me, you can't carry the flag in vehicle mode (for balance reasons). You can sprint but, like stated above, my team was playing it like TDM and completley ignored me as I ran by with the flag. I couldn't get very far since the other team would atleast cover their flag carrier.

    Headhunter is just TDM with more points scored for collecting heads. I seemed to get killed from behind a lot more because I was focusing on getting the kill and collecting the head. It also displays a markers when you have heads, which makes it nearly impossible to retreat.

    With a coordinated, or at least sensible, team they're probably fun.

    CTF's an XP booster's easy gametype. Both times I've played, either team would score once. Then the opposing team (winning or losing) would keep us from scoring afterwards for the entirety of the time-limit by forming a defensive perimeter around their flagbearer at their spawn and simply killing anyone who got close enough to kill him without actually chasing down our flagbearer, just so they can get as many kills/XP as possible. Even when the room was cleared they spawned close enough that they could get in from any direction and kill me/us while we were trying to return the flag, before the progress bar got even to the halfway point most of the time.

    Never playing it publicly ever again. Looks like a game mode I'll only want to play privately if this keeps going on.

    Headhunter will do the same to me as reach, just anger me when i drop all the sparks,

    BUT I was really enjoying CTF earlier. One game I managed to return two of the flags on a fairly large map, shame I didn't get the third one though, need to work on getting that acheivement

    I play Conquest because I find TDM frankly boring as fuck. Deathmatch modes are just straight killfests, and get boring real fast. Conquest you have to think, and you have to balance bloodlust with an ability to get the objective points. I think killing is still VERY important in Conquest, but you cannot treat it as a killfest otherwise you're not being very productive.

    In any shooter, I've always preferred the objective based game modes rather than straight deathmatch game modes.

    This.
    TDM: Kill enemies.
    Conquest: Take nodes and kill enemies taking yours.
    Capture the Flag: Protect your flag and take enemy flags, and kill enemies stealing your flag.
    Headhunter: Kill enemies and take their sparks to a node.

    I haven't played Capture the Flag, but Headhunter is my favorite game mode so far (with at least two other players in my party). Solo? I'll just play TDM.

    I find TDM boring. Conquest used to be the only mode I played, but now I'm also liking CTF. Guess I've been lucky with matches.

    My favorite WFC mode was Power Struggle, but I was only able to play it for the first two-three months. After that, a full game rarely started.

    I've never gotten to play in CTF or Headhunter, they never seem to run.

    Hell, TDM and Conquest have their troubles, as I've alluded to elsewhere.

    Just bumping this thread up to say, that Headhunter is a pretty fun mode. Just tried it out today and was having a blast. A great full game too.

    If any of you haven't yet. Give it a shot.

    I saw a video and it looks a bit boring and generic to me.

    I hate goal missions where you still need to survive. In fact, I hate having to survive to win, since I'm bad at it.
    Plus, I just don't like the general thought of having to steal your enemy's sparks.
