Title: Siege Focused Update
Post by: Saga on February 23, 2018, 11:30:41 pm
The following suggestions are meant to enhance the siege mode in a way that improves it for both casual and competitive play.
I believe if done right the siege mode could (and should) become the most popular public gamemode.

Feel free to discuss bellow.


I would like to suggest the following changes to the existing mode.

1) The individual respawn limit will deter defending players from wasting a pool of lives and will prevent griefers. This has been brought up many times on the forums.
2) The current maps do not play out well, they feel too much like the regular battlefield mode. More details bellow.

Additions to the Siege mode

Why Siege?

Perhaps an update for Siege can be combined with the Prussians? That way the hype for the Prussians will bring in more players, then retain them through a newly updated game-mode?

The current siege maps don't really feel siegey enough. I'd like to see bigger maps with multiple layers of defense as well.

I agree with everything on this post! +1
Although, I do like the Fort Christina map. The fort itself does need to be bigger, and few more guns on it wouldn't go amiss.

Maybe some earthworks around the Fort to give defenders some more space

I understand that Holdfast is still in Early Access but I keep going back to Napoleonic Wars siege servers because they are just so enjoyable and different with each session. I hope to see that here too. +1

In time I want to see more detailed siege maps. Forts, fortified coastal forts, towns, anything that might be fun to attack or defend. *cough* Alamo *cough*

Yes, if there is one thing I love about NW, it is the sieges. And yeah, when the map making tools are released for Holdfast, someone's gotta make an Alamo map.

This would also encourage people to play sieges more often. At present, the siege servers are empty.
