What are your favorite competitive game experiences and why? This can be a single game, a game mode, or just a really cool moment with your friends. The important thing is that it was a competitive moment that made you feel good or that you enjoy.
For me when it comes to FPS I’m really into the Kill Confirmed and Domination/Point Control modes. I find normal deathmatch way too chaotic and dependent on reflexes, so each of these give me a chance to think a little more tactically. Domination sets up little points of conflict that let you predict where attackers will be and then flank them or deny access to a certain area. Kill Confirmed does something similar, but the hotspots are instead around the tokens dead players leave that you have to collect to win. It really breaks up the pace and forces players to move in instead of staying g at long range forever.
I’m also fond of Puyo Puyo Tetris’ Swap Mode, where you play both Puyo Puyo and Tetris, with each respective board switching to the other every 25 seconds. It keeps you from dominating entirely in one game and allows some really incredible comebacks when you get into dire situations.
