What if forge wasn't in Halo 4? (pick your 11 gametypes)

Recommended Posts

Imagine that you are running a 4v4 Halo 4 tournament after just after the Majestic DLC came out - but the game was released without a working forge mode. What 11 maps / gametypes would you pick for your tournament?

 

Mine:

 

Abandon TS

Haven TS 

Skyline TS

Landfall TS

 

Adrift CTF (ugh)

Skyline CTF

Solace Slice CTF (ugggggh)

 

Abandon 1-Plot

Haven 1-Plot

 

Landfall Hill

Adrift Hill

 

This just reminds me of how badly we need forge..

You'll have to forgive my ignorance on this...  Does Landfall in its original form actually work competitively?

Ah, good point since theres no forge.

 

Its too big.

 

And solace slice would have to be a no go too because we couldnt change the spawns

If there was no Forge, we wouldn't be able to have Slice. We'd have to play normal Solace.

If Forge wasn't in Halo 4, I wouldn't play the game. The disc maps are subpar to say the least

I cant even play this game with Forge for TTD.  Playing them without Forge would be like H3 Default all over again

Slayer: 
Haven

Abandon

Skyline

Monolith/Pit/Vertigo

Landfall

 

Flag:

Skyline 5

Adrift 3 no at-home

Pitfall 3 or 5

Monolith 3 or 5

 

Ext:

Haven 1-Plot

Abandon/Monolith/Landfall 1-Plot

 

and to be quite honest, I wouldn't mind no forge maps... we actual have a surpisingly good amount of non-forge gametypes.

Has to be 5 Slayers and 6 Objectives

 

OP didn't specify and I dislike the current 5 slayer 6 OBJ layout considering how simple TS is in comparison to OBJ's. I only wanted 3, one to break each Bo5 and one for Game 11 but couldn't think of a decent OBJ without forge and without repeating a map more than twice. If only oddball throwing didn't exist and the ball didn't roll so much :(

No working forge mode?

 

>Stuck with horrible default maps and less horrible majestic maps

>Can't place weapons on said horrible maps/can't delete or alter random ordnance spawns on said horrible maps

>Can't alter spawns on said horrible maps

>Can't alter movement options, cover, or any of the like on said horrible maps

>Can't place lights or other callout tools on said horrible maps that have absolutely awful orientation

>Can't alter objectives on said horrible maps

I think I'll create v8 Reach instead and run that.

 

As for the 11 gametypes?

 

-Dammy TS (closer to original Dammy, not the full ****** clusterfuck that Kurtiz or whoever came up with for v7)

-Dammy KOTH

-Dammy Ball

-Dammy CTF

-Dammy asymm CTF

-Dammy Territories

-Dammy Bomb

-Dammy Stockpile

-Dammy Headhunter

-Dammy Race

-Dammy Infection

Pit/Vertigo

I just didn't want people to fill every slot with Pit/Vertigo since we don't even know how they will play in H4 yet (flinch 12 bullet snipes, new lift, entirely new map, etc). What would you replace Pit CTF with?

Keep in mind also that Abandon would not have the really good ring 2 spawns...and Haven not have the symmetrical spawns.

 

My gametypes

 

Slayer :

Skyline

Pit

Landfall

Monolith

 

CTF : 

Skyline

Adrift 3

Pit 5

 

Extraction : 

Adrift 2-Plot

Abandon 1 -Plot

 

KoTH : 

Haven

Landfall

 Adrift hill is surprisingly decent, you can't just sit back and camp the bases after you get a flag cap or two ahead like you can on CTF. I wanted to minimize Monolith gametypes because the mancannon from tower to tower would be impossible to remove. Mono Hill would be my next choice, though.

 

And Landfall Extraction > Solace

 

I picked Solace because without forge, we can't block off the back of the map (so the map becomes very large for 4v4). I had Landfall Hill > Solace before I realized that.
