Anyone Else LOVE CTF?

Or maybe just like? So far, I feel like this is the mode that BF3 has been missing. It requires teamwork like Rush, but isn't nearly as frustrating. Now I may be a little biased because this was my favorite game mode in CoD3 and most any other game that had it for much the same reasons. It feels more rewarding than Conquest and it really fits Battlfield well, especially with it being a BF1942 classic. Would anyone else like to see it return for BF4 and if at all possible in all BF3 maps? Could you imagine CTF on Metro? Talk about intense... Russian flag in the Cafe and the US flag on the Platform, getting it through the Ticket Hall would be hell! I'm interested to see what everyone else thinks.

I'm liking it a lot too, still no where near as fun as classic Conquest, but by far the best mode addition to any of the BF3 DLC's. It would be kickass to play CTF on some of the bigger BF3 maps..but not Metro lol.

They probably will add it to BF4!

Capture The Flag + Dirtbikes = Most fun I've had in BF3 in a LONG time.

So far I'm loving it, I think it would be really fun on pretty much any of the other maps (Grand Bazaar or Seine Crossing would be crazy!). For me it's hands down the best of the "add on" game modes, and is the only one I really think needs to be included in BF4 from the get go.

I like it, it's a nice change from my playing of conquest the majority of the time (I just recently tried TDM for the first time in many months, and some of the maps feel like new maps because of the sections played on). The maps feel of a resonable size in CTF, yet, there's always something going on - the game mode feels lively. Without the dirt bikes, i'm sure it would be much slower paced.

I think some who like it though just like it because it's new and/or there's achievements and assignments tied to it. I'm sure that in about 2 months, there will only be a few dedicated CTF servers remaining

No, it's a horrible mode, why would you want to ruin BF4 or all of BF3 with this garbage!

No, it's the worst mode ever! Burn in hell DICE!

i used to play warhawk all the time (FUCK BEAST game ps3 exclusive) and played ctf on that and it seemed to work fine, but on bf3 itt just dosent seem to work for me, too many dirtbikes and mines. ctf on close quarters maps or tdm sized maps would be great, but ctf isnt for me.

It's ok, not great. Every game I've played so far has been each team camping the other teams base.

lol, it's a multiple choice poll. The first three answers are for whether or not you like it and the last three are for whether or not you'd like to see it in vanilla BF3 and/or BF4. I should've added that to the OP.

Totally agree with everything you said here! Grand Bazaar would be great for it! I do hope BF4 has it, especially since it fits, it's not just a tacked on mode, it really plays to Battlefield's strengths, certainly more so than say, TDM.

It was great fun playing with you last night, btw! Those AT mines were insane, lol.

Pretty much, or C4 crazy. The snow map seems to be the worst with this.

I think it's a good addition(though I'm starting to hate the campfest). It's a nice break from conquest and rush, which I usually play. I'm getting worried about the possibility of staggering segregation, due the amount of different playlists available.

My favorite part of CTF is flying around in the chopper and seeing all of the C4/AT Mines highlighted. Talk about a clusterfuck of explosives! I'll stick to the skies instead of trying to navigate that mess!

silly me

i voted these:


although i dont really like it that much,

if the map sizes were halved (or the same size as tdm and close quarters maps) dirt bike quantity halved, tank mines disabled, then it would be ok

i still think it should return to bf4 anyway, it is a classic mode included in motst first person shooters, maybe they could replace it with squad rush, nobody plays that

CTF..... Can be really fun sometimes and make you wish you were on a competent team the other times. I like the idea of CTF but the lack of teamwork in most games is appalling. I found that most of the time when you get the flag your team does not back you up. On the same hand, I noticed that a lot of the time when the enemy has your flag, your team does very little to get it back. I will get the Medal and think about maybe going for the Elite Flag Attacker Tag but once those are had I will go back to playing Conquest

Also, any one notice all the AT Mine Specialists that came out for EndGame? I think someone needs to tell them you can only put down 6 Mines at a time and everytime you die you do not need to put down another 6 Mines unless they were all destroyed.

From what I've played, the camping was pretty bad. You get about 2 or 3 brave people on each team that leave the base and the rest just camp. I do enjoy conquest on the new maps though.

I say it would be worth it to stick out 50 flag returns in CTF, unless I happen to snag it off of someone I might settle for that.

^ Yeah, think I've only returned about 20 odd flags so far. Capping them is annoying as fuck most of the time.

Well after finally winning 50 games of CTF for the medal, all I've noticed is running after the flag shits on your K/D (if you really care about that) and instead just defending your flag and letting others for for theirs has proven really strong to me lately. I played most of my games on Operation Riverside on the Russian team, so I always like a noob..hid in the rocks in front of the flag with a M320 therefore basically made it impossible for the other team to cap our flag even once ..50 games will fly by and I averaged 5 K/D..6 K/D each game. Nebandan Flats is brilliant too but the other 2 maps in CTF are pretty shit imo.

I need to work on the 50 flag caps now think I only have about 10 so far and most of those are stolen off a teammate who died right next to our base returning it lol.

I'm not overly concerned about my KDR in regards to capping flags, but it does get exceedingly irritating that every time I snagglepuss the enemy flag, ours gets grabbed at the same time.

I'm digging' it. I hope it returns in Battlefield 4. I can't think of anything why this would ruin all of BF3.

Yup. I was in a game with gmurda earlier, and damned if we didn't have to kill the enemy flag carrier EVERY time we snagged the flag.

i think i have won like 30 games of CTF, and i try to make it my mission to cap one flag each game so I can unlock the dogtag by the time i get done. hopefully it works out. sometimes i dont get a chance to, as earlier with saint, i flew him to the flag all three times and he got all the captures. lol
