[Across all leagues]
- Ink grenades proved rather annoying due to the changes EPIC made to them so they will be removed from out leagues.
- All new maps (Azura, Bulletmarsh, Rustlung, Clocktower, Blood Drive) will be included next season
[Mixed Modes League]
The general consensus on mixed modes was overall good, however there were some issues raised in terms of game mode frequency (Execution and Warzone popping up quite alot). Hence, this time around we've decided to "mix" things up abit better.
- Capture the Leader (CTL) and King of the Hill (KOTH) will be included every week, and Execution, Warzone and Team Deathmatch will be on rotation now instead.
- Team sizes will remain as 5 players versus 5 players (5v5)
- Sawed-Off shotgun is banned
Mainly just changes to weapons in this league, as once again general feedback the rules etc was good.
- Retro Lancer is now banned from this league
- Sawed-Off Shotgun is again banned
- Hammerburst Rifle will NOT be removed
- Team sizes will now change to 4v4 in this league to achieve that Classic Gears feeling
And Finally we're pleased to announce that we are bringing you a new league which will debut in season 2
This will essentially be the same as mixed modes in terms of rules and game modes played, but for all of us (who hasen't?) that have played the Alpha playlist that EPIC gave us, you know that there are substantial, favourable differences and we will most certainly be following suit.
- Game modes will include, KOTH, Warzone/Execution and TDM. There will be no CTL!
- There will be weapon swaps in this league (TBA) so watch this space...
- Team sizes will of course be 4v4
- Lancers and Gnashers will be the only starting weapons. In other words NO Hammerburst, Sawed-Off or Retro
Thats your lot guys, but I still have some last tidbits of information to pour on you. We will be opening registration starting this week and we are planning to kick off season 2 the week begining 9th January.
So hurry up and get your teams signed up and lets make season 2 as successful as season 1.
