View Full Version : Which mode do you prefer

06-17-2017, 06:21 AM
which mode do you like or dislike and why ?
i used to like every mode. Mostly dominion , duel and elimination.
since patch 1.07 i only stick to duel and brawl . Mostly duel . Sometime i switch to brawl to avoid dueling the same guy.

i thought this could be a good topic.

Why do you prefer a particular mode and why are you not playing one mode in particular ?

06-17-2017, 07:13 AM
lol This is gonna turn into a Centurion gank complaint thread xD
That's my reason for not playing too much of dominion, 2+ centruions really ruins dominion.
I personally like Elimination the best, but for some reason its always low activity unless event or order..

06-17-2017, 07:16 AM
Actually, I can find fun in all modes.

As long, as I play vs. AI.

Skirmish however, is the most fun and elimination is often a mixed bag, depending on the bits involved.

Duel, brawl and elimination are basically the same, only with raising player counts and one of them has stats and perks.

most fun i have in dominion

06-17-2017, 08:26 AM
Used to be vs Player Dominion, but S2 is cancer, so stopped it mostly.

Now vs AI Elimination. Most of the times all my ally bots lose and I end up 1v3 remaining which is actually pretty fun vs Bots.

The only one that doesn't crash or freeze. Training Mode.

Still enjoy Dominion more than any other mode, but since Season 2 having a good game is harder than usual. I always like Objective based modes, rather than just TDM dressed up in various forms, which is all that the other modes are. In Dominion, it's not primarily about killing people over and over, in all the other modes it is. I like having something to do, a goal to achieve, a contribution to make that isn't just relentless killing. Would love some more Objective modes, CTF / Siege / whatever.

I can say that I didn't play Brawl almost at all. So this mode is my least favourite one. I like play all the rest. I think I played Dominion mostly but that changed after S2 but it's not only because of new classes but also because people discovered that it's better to run and kill and take points as a result then the other way around (I don't blame people here but the design of current Dominion).

06-17-2017, 01:26 PM
Mostly Dominion and Duell Mode :rolleyes:

Rarely Elimination

Brawl and Deathmatch just for contracts, but never voluntarily ;b

1v1 = Turtle lords who play reactive.

4v4 = Roma invicta gank squads.

I'd say, my favourite mode, is the one where I need to escort the payload. :rolleyes:

I stared playing 1's in beta and into season 1, but that became very slow/reactive. Then i switched to 4's and dominion. Now, in NY, it takes me about 4-7 minutes to find 4's, bit i still enjoy it. Dominion is rough with cents, but it feels the most team oriented. Hopefully UBI does not continue to sacrifice the play-ability of a popular mode for the entire cast to preserve a single character's viability in a single mode.

06-17-2017, 07:59 PM
1v1 and 2v2

Elim= if your team sucks you suck
Dominion= no teamplay no fun
I don't even wanna try skirmish again

06-17-2017, 08:24 PM
Duel. 100%
4v4 is just too imbalanced. has been since launch.
i've explained why and it doesn't ever gain any traction.

06-17-2017, 10:02 PM
i used to love dominion and skirmish . but , its just since , they nerfed revenge you cannot survive when you are outnumbered,The revenge was there to give you extra armor to withstand many opponent.But now you can't take the extra hit when in revenge you die in 3 second .Some say dont find yourself outnumbered ... but it is easier to say than reality.

So instead of *****ing and moaning i keep duel and brawl and i have a lot of fun with it.I play everyday.

06-17-2017, 11:18 PM
Pretty interesting to see some of the reasons why you all prefer certain modes and avoid others - it would be good food for thought for the team to think about as we progress forward.

It's also unfortunate to see that some of you feel that you want to avoid dominions because of centurion. We want you to be able to play what you want - and seeing that there are these unintended barriers to your enjoyment is something I want to bring up to the team to discuss as well.

06-18-2017, 12:10 AM
Dominion vs AI. Wish the AI bots would be a little better, and the games last slightly longer, but meh. Also wish player bots would be dealt with - or even acknowledged.

PvP dominion is painful as there are so many centurions or cheesy tactics being employed. That class really needs to be nerfed as soon as Ubisoft is done making money off the unlocks. It's entirely ridiculous.

I hate duel - I like strategic options, in duel there are none.

06-18-2017, 03:01 AM
I like everything but Elimination, mostly for reasons already stated.

Duel-awesome. Although, ... I kinda' wish there was an option to play with gear stats.

Brawl-awesome. Adds a bit of opponent variety, and if I'm suckin,' I still have a teammate.

Skirmish-I don't really play it but for orders, but I don't dislike it. Unlike Elimination, it's very... genuine, real. It's a gankfest, pure and simple, and doesn't claim to be anything but. And, it's good for working on one's ganking skills. That may sound silly to some of you, but getting killed by a careless teammate's friendly fire during a crucial moment in Dominion is not silly. And it does happen. Skirmish is a real "take it or leave it" type of game mode. In general, people love it or hate it. I'm fairly indifferent, however.

Elimination-I really don't like it, and absolutely never play it but for orders. Even then, sometimes I won't. As someone said before, if your team sucks, you're virtually guaranteed to lose. You won your matchup? Congrats. As a reward, you now get to face three opponents simultaneously. Also, should you have failed to execute your original opponent and find yourself unable to control your three new ones, you'll get to face three opponents, high on winning and group mentality, as well as a fourth with a grudge.
Now sometimes I get into a lobby wherein everyone's playing extra honorably and refraining from interfering in 1v1s. This is nice, and it makes me feel like the community's not entirely made up of ****heads who inexplicably strive to make folks rage quit and sell their game. However, ...
Despite the warm and fuzzy that this evokes, it can take FOREVER. So, even when Elimination's cool, it sucks. IMO

Dominion-Ah, the crown jewel. The most complex and, IMO, best game mode in For Honor. It's like all the others combined. This is default for me. It's only if I'm not feelin' Dominion that I play Duel or Brawl. (Though sometimes I like to start with Brawl as a warm-up.)
Gank squads suck, that's all there is to it. The only advice I have for Dominion players facing gank squads is to really pay attention to numbers and icons. Sometimes gank squads get so wrapped up in killing that they fail to notice the score. And, ... Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em. (Sorry.) There's no shame in abandoning a point when you've got three enemies charging toward you and no hope of reinforcement.

Centurions-there's another forum post or 50 about how Centurions suck. However, I've not read any valid reasons therefor. I'm not trying to be cheeky, but seriously, what is your complaint about Centurions? I mean I know that facing an entire Dominion team of Centurions sucks, but so does facing an entire Dominion team of Shinobi! I'm somewhat ashame to admit, but I once played on a Dominion team of Shinobi. And, if there's a special hell for gamers, that match put me WAY closer to it. It was awful. The entire opposing team left, willing to eat the matchmaking penalty, but for one poor Shugoki. I seriously felt guilty, and I will never do that again. (Except maybe to grief some ***holes.)

This is off-topic and maybe a bit "salty," but at this point, I'm so past the character limit and that of readers' patience that I just don't care.

There have been a lot changes made to this game since its release, many at the behest of the player community. And, many of them have been for the best. All of them have required players to make adjustments to their styles. I figured out the guard break mechanic, y'all complained, it was changed, I readjusted. I figured out guard switch speed for my characters, y'all complained, now I'm trying to adjust to that. Maybe y'all are right, and these fixes need to be made. I just wanna' make sure that we're trying to figure the game out and exhausting all of out options before we demand gameplay changes from Devs. If ****'s genuinely ****ed up, then by all means, get it fixed. If you're just havin' a hard time with something, though, don't start ranting and raving on the forums, demanding changes that would significantly affect gameplay for EVERYONE. Do Duel Practice, watch a YouTube tutorial, READ THE **** MOVESET!

I'm sorry for... all of this. Feel free to hate.

Good fight!

all the modes fall short. Dominion is a very sad excuse of a big mode. We really would need something actually big and engaging. Like a 40 minutes siege with walls to break through. Right now we have just variations of 1v1 2v2 4v4 that feel almost exactly the same, and the 10minutes Dominion is nothing to brag about.

06-18-2017, 03:09 AM
Dominion and Elims. Duels are just boring turtle-fests and I really don't enjoy that, even if I play characters that excel at it (Warlord). 4v4 is just more fun and interesting experience.

06-18-2017, 03:22 AM
Dominion and Skirmish, the other three modes are turtle central which is just as unfun as fighting a centurion gank squad

06-18-2017, 07:47 AM
I gotta say Dominion, because its the mode that suits my current level of skill -- or lack thereof. :rolleyes:

Of course, I'm not saying people who enjoy Dom are lesser in skill, I'm merely stating the obvious fact that the more variables and objectives there are outside of pure 1vs1 combat, the higher chance those that lack in skill -- like me -- find variety of other elements to utilize and enjoy despite not being as good as some players. In contrast, the more variables and factors are removed from the game, the more it becomes about pure skill, and I don't thin I'm competitive enough to enjoy 1v1s, 2v2s, or even Skirmish or Elimination.

For people like me, 4v4 Dom is just the thing. Plenty of different factors in game, being able to contribute to the team by smart playing, assisting, or being just a pure "ganker"... whatever you do, you got a chance to contribute to the team in your own way.

Why not making POLL instead in this thread ?

06-19-2017, 08:28 AM
Which gamemode i like best? One without centurions so we can have some skill in the game.:cool:

06-19-2017, 08:56 AM
I really liked Dominion before it turned into Skirmish.

06-19-2017, 09:02 AM
Duels and brawl. The players in these modes can be infuriating but I believe you learn the most here. I only wish the xp gained was higher.

06-19-2017, 09:47 AM
Duel mostly, though started to play Dominon vs AI more.

Was always put off gear stats being enabled. Now though the thought of multiple Centurions sounds rather dull.

I'm exactly the same

06-19-2017, 11:58 AM
I play Dominion PvP most of the time, plus some Duels if i fell like it. I don't like the other modes, and play them vs AI only to complete missions.

06-19-2017, 03:51 PM
Why not making POLL instead in this thread ?

i just have to look at activity level (On pc) to know which mode community prefer and it seem to be dominion and duel.So i don't really need to make a poll.

I wanted to know why people avoid certain mode . Like elimination and brawl are often low activity.

For me the reason is simple i don't like ganking either a ganker party or being ganked , i hate being interrupt by my teammate.I used to love to fight outnumbered but the new revenge system don't allow you to take much hit like the old version was . With the old mechanic i was able at least to hold a flag in hope to have back up soon .Now that the armor in revenge is almost as weak as the regular one it doesn't make much difference.

I would like to tell you a story happenned in early weeks of for honor :
In Dominion there was a PK who was picking on a warden , calling him no honor and stuff.After couple round of this i called a cease fire , then we all meet in the middle of citadel gate (away from minions) and let the PK duel have his fair duel with the Warden while we all bystand and watch. That was an epic moment of for honor.

Now people are overall so frustrating that this kind of small event would likely not happen anymore .Now I stick to duel away from general frustration .People in duel have a better attitude ,anyone who fought several match in a row in duel against a skilled matching opponent will love this game forever

06-19-2017, 04:53 PM
I enjoy duels and brawls the most. Bare bones combat is my preferred fighting style.

06-19-2017, 05:06 PM
I rly enjoy 4v4 modes. 1v1 and 2v2 modes are totaly not my style. I like the dinamic and fast gameplay of the 4v4 when u need to 1v1 some1 and all the time watch your back for another enemy player.

06-19-2017, 05:11 PM
my favorite mode is duel - man against man, blade against blade, no fancy gear. just pure combat.

second fave is dominion - I love the strategy and I also love getting killstreaks defending my zone :D I'm not scared of cent ganks or shinoobi cheese!

06-19-2017, 05:12 PM
I like Skirmish the most, it's quick, fun and I feel more relaxed, Dominion is also enjoyable and calm. Whereas Brawls and Duels feel too tense and make me a bit stressed out, lol. Same feeling about Elimination which is essentially the same as Brawl but with more people and buffs.

I essentially end up liking Skirmish the most, then Dominion. ;)

06-20-2017, 12:14 AM
Duels and Brawls are my jam, but I really enjoy Elimination as well. Skirmish is my least favorite, but maybe it's because I like the pressure of not having respawns. :confused:

06-20-2017, 12:56 AM
Skirmish is my least favorite
You are not alone with this :D

06-22-2017, 01:38 AM
Dominion is best girl, joking aside, it's my favourite game mode anyways. (when your teammates aren't brainless idiots and actually capping zones instead of dying nowhere near them to get "EZ" kills.)
