    TW is way more balanced than HG was.

    I say GOOD JOB dev team

    Its forcing you to teamwork, instead of douching as in HG.
    I prefer TW myself, but I still would like to be awailable to play HG.
    at least on private servers.

    These are two completely different game modes.

    Can't really compare them.


    But I don't get why devs refuse to patch it back in. If everyone likes TW so much better etc. no one will play HG, and it will truly be dead. problem solved.

    and where the fridge is Fort?

    Fort was removed until it was tweaked to be balanced for TW.

    I loved Fort. But since the last update, everyone spawned in one place above the ground forcing to kill yourself using the "kill" command because all of the players were stuck... Hopefully Fort will come back and even better than before with TW.

    Eh, we looked into having both, but TW is essentially a built-up replacement of HG. It's Holy Grail version 2, the next natural progression. A lot of content will be built on/different/replaced in future versions - we're in beta - but only where we see no place for the old content

    The only problem I see with TW is that it takes seemingly long time for players to get the grasp on what is supposed to be done, and the fact that it's a FPS killer for many.

    Other than that, tops in my book!

    Well, Trinket Wars may be more balanced now, but it's not nearly as hilarious as the old version before Holy Grail when someone had to haul the booty chest around. I really think that mode was the best depiction of cutthroat greed in any game to date. Skirm running with chest gets throwing axe to face, viking picks up chest and instantly gets his head bashed in by an HK who in turn gets kegged as he picks up the booty continue ad nauseum.

    And so much people not even trying... Oh god that was horrible!

    Fantastic! A fearsome and formidable force; frightening to the frantic masses of folk. With full fortitude he ferociously forays the futile and foul faggotry that fills this fortuitous fix. But in de facto, this fiend is but a faint fluent flame. but i forfend, for i for surely sound like a fool, flaunting my vocabulary so foolhardily. some make me a favorite and others title me as a freak. but you my friend, may call me Fred

    Grail mode was pretty much the most appealing feature of PVKII for me. While Trinket Wars is certainly a game mode that requires some larger element of teamwork, you are simply kidding yourself if you think this game is taken seriously enough that the teamwork element enhances the gameplay experience. Most of the time, PVK is a game of chaos and playing for yourself.

    TW may be a good addition, but taking away HG was a mistake. I don't bother much playing PVK any more as a result.

    I'm quoting that. The old gamemod with the chest was funny. Grailcarrier being completely unable to defend himself, that were times. This one could get a come back in my eyes, as the chest slows the carrier down and makes him unable to run around like crazy.


    Besides that, I love Trinket Wars. I played quite some rounds and you see the difference in the teamwork. Those that don't work together get steamrolled by those, who play together. And when all three teams are trying hard, you often get results like 0 - 2 - 1 or something. That's actually the most fun, when every kill counts and the trinket carrier gets kills when the team only needs 1 point more.

    And despite what some people wrote in this thread, you really *see* more people working together. I rarely see any people running around alone. Most of the time, it's a real massacre.

    Unfortunately it's not coming back no use in trying maybe eventually we might get enough people to complain about it and bring HG back.

    It's actually fine as it is. I was just playing with some thoughts, but TW is really the most balanced mod out of all three grail / trinket mods. There is no need to bring an earlier version back to life.

    all in all tw is better than hg. much about strategy, teamwork.
    but for me it sucks when the talented player isnt the best.. if you know what i mean
    just my personal opinion. thats why i like cs or cod 1 and stuff

    There are some custom maps that are deathmatch. They're usually not too much fun because there's really no winning nor any point. Something like your team gets so many kills to win would be fun though.

    TW is the perfect team deathmatch IMO, it is all about killing people as a team.
    And LTS is also good to show of your warrior supremacy!

    i guess the problem are the 3 teams in TW
    camper, backstabber arr advantaged
    one team attacks another, 3rd berserks/shoots/kegs from behind
    finally often the best team doesnt win
    edit
    ..not only player but also team
    teamwork is too important in that mode for 3 teams. same in HG i guess.

    just a consideration

    Having an incompetent team can suck the fun right out of TW.
    LTS is my favorite, but it can get annoying after being killed by a large gang or some random occurrence.
    Don't get me wrong, I love the gamemodes that there are now, it's just I wouldn't mind seeing something more like a Team Deathmatch.

    Holy Grail as a Custom Game mode would be ok. I would play it, but TW is still my fav because of the teamwork with all 3 teams and not running after a Skirm with the Grail before 2.4.

    I could imagine team deathmatch with something eventually deciding the game, like a global event on the map. E.g.: Everyone who isn't in spot X will die.

    Crossfire for half-life had this mechanic, and it was wonderful. smile.gif
