So I was completing tribute orders against bots the other day and finished the fastest game of tribute I ever played. Has anybody done it quicker? Is this a new record? Do I win 5?

It amuses me how a big part of the community thinks Dominion is the fastest and easiest way to farm experience and steel when skirmish, elimination and tribute can give better results when you have a good team. Maybe these modes give lower rewards but you can play 2 or 3 matches in the time of a regular dominion.

It is a shame that all the other modes don’t have an equal players base.....I like all the modes

Maybe Ubisoft needs to put all the existing 4v4 modes in one single, and in the map selection players vote for the game mode (like we have right now for skirmish and elimination). 4 maps to select and 1 for each mode: tribute, dominion, skirmish & elimination

Nah, I've seen plenty of Tribute games not last a single minute. If your team lose their initial fights, then its always a possibility.

I wish the mode were more popular among the players. Can't even get a full 4 v 4 most of the time. I really do enjoy the game mode but I almost always have to resort to playing with bots, it's a damn shame.

Its always felt like kind of a novelty to me tbh, but its okay for a knockabout now and then. Or it was when you could still get a game anyway.

Thing is (and as this topic indirectly hints at) its even more of an uphill battle to face pre-made teams in this mode. But mostly it just never managed to feel like you were really playing 'proper' FH. Unfair I guess but there you have it...

Dominion is the best mode for solo queuing in my opinion, for those of us who don't like the slow pace of duels.

On consoles there is no way to communicate with randoms, which makes tribute frustrating compared to Dom as far as teamplay is concerned.

Tribute is a mode that pre made teams destroy in, that's why it's dead, solo players want no part of it.


This made me think of a xp and steel farming idea though, if you got a full pre made team for tribute, and let the other team take the flags and win every time you could finish matches in a minute.

I always felt the biggest issue with tribute was that you could be dominating for the entire match, but make 1 small mistake at the end and you were screwed out of the win.

Same here, not a fan of the back and forth nature of the game mode, it's more annoying than entertaining/intense, especially without a full pre made team.

No one asked for a CTF mode and that's why it has no players, there wasn't much interest in it from the start, not surprising that it failed the test of time.

This is true, but on the other side of that coin, how many people rage quit Dominion matches because they realise they're being stomped and can't recover? I think the fact that you can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat makes the mode more dynamic and exciting although I don't like games that go back and forward for the full ten minutes if I'm trying to grind orders out with bots.

Wait! How did you do this? When a team has 3 offers the other team starts breaking, and they have two minutes to steal an offer. How could this match last less than two minutes?

Once you get all 3 offerings, the other team has 40 seconds or 45 seconds or something to steal at least one to rally and reset the timer. We basically got all the offerings right off the bat and then killed the other team when they came to steal them and that was pretty much that. It happened again yesterday. The best maps for quick games seem to be Forest and Tower Ruin as the flag points are all quite close together and much easier to defend once you have them all than when they're spread out.

5 pounds is actually about 7.50 dollars Canadian so I wouldn't book any flights just yet. Also cost of living is pretty high here, and we probably have the most expensive cell phone plans on the planet, and booze is taxed by 40% from the government so that's expensive as f*** too.

BoGster where's your sense of Humor? it was at least $15 before Brexit! and you want to talk about expensive? trust me the UK wins hands down! 4 Billion Dollars for a 350 sq ft apartment in London at least

DD you notice he didn't defend their crazy Mr. "Peoplekind" PM?

Lol no one likes Trudeau, that includes most Canadians. What was 15 dollars? The exchange rate? I don't think it was ever above 3 to 1.

We get buggered on tobacco products, alcohol and petrol and our standard VAT rate is 20% so it's not especially good here either. At least kebabs are cheap.

Haha, well I don't really want to get too political so it's probably for the best :)
