View Full Version : "Battlebox" server on hyperlobby- true teamwork game design!

The last couple of weeks "Swiss Cheez" (his call sign) has hosted a hyperlobby server game that he has called "Battlebox" that absolutely rocks.

Games are designed for teamwork. Each team plays until one team loses a total of 10 to 18 planes- then the game is over and one team is declared the winner, and a new mission is loaded.

This design creates a whole new dynamic. Careless flying penalizes the team. Individual scores are deemphasized and teamwork is in. Games are over quickly enough, say in 10 to 15 minutes or so, that you notice when the victory occurs, unlike say on Warclouds.

During the game, the server updates and counts down the score, saying "Red has 3 planes left," etc. Some of the missions have airstarts, which gets you right into flying.

All in all a great type of server, hope we can see more of them.

Nope, unfortunately.

I was hoping maybe that someone who has the means would make a similar one that is sometime.
