TDM Length

Call of Duty Black Ops II Xbox 360

Yes please.

Make the total 100. (maybe 125 if 100 even seems to low).

TDM also needs 125 points per kill...and 50per assist (with 75 for emp/shock assists).

This will make scorestreaks more manageable without increased camping, and make the games more fun and exciting. With the scorestreak improvement 125 for overall team total might be the go-to number in that case.

I basically only play TDM. The low score per kill and low score for team total are always two things that bugged me in this game.

As an HCTDM players, I can't agree with this.

I find 75 to be a good number. One issue TDM always suffered from before this game was that, especially in HC, matches would often not reach the 75 kill limit. This game I find 9/10 matches at least do reach that marker.

75 is a good number imo. Its not high enough to drag the game out but not low enough to make the game too quick.

My experience has been that games go one of 2 ways: 1) One team is extremely far ahead and there is no chance of the other team winning or 2) games are extremely close and can go either way at the end. I rarely see those middle of the line games.

My worry is that with longer games you get a few things... More quitting, especially if one team is down by a lot. More Camping to reach that higher numbers. More scorestreaks.

I think bumping up the total would take away some of the charm that TDM has, some of what I love about it.

In HC I can see no increasing the game but with the quitting issue plenty quit in game regaurdless especially in KC and Dom so I don't see it would be much of a difference.

I see it quite a bit already, but being 75 the end is in sight so people sometimes just stick it out. Prolong it.. get more scorestreaks in the air... makes the issue bigger and more noticeable. Just my opinion.

I think an increase is long overdue, but only to say 90 / 100. It may help bring slayers back from objective modes and liven up TDM again.

If you're looking for longer matches with more kills / higher streaks play KC.

I agree TDM epically on small maps like nuketown are way to short. 100-150 would be a great amount in my opinion. There is a challenge I think to get either 20 or 25 kills in a row on TDM. It would make it less stressful if it was more kills in the game mode.

I don't know how you get matches that end so fast on tdm... Typcially the games I get into are camp fests that hi the time limit. If anything they should increase the points rewarded by 25% or give everyone in the game type built in hardline. IMO fast matches are good matches anyway. I'd take 5 min matches over 10 minute matches any day.

I think there's a difference between Core and HC, I only play Core and some matches are too short so 100 would be a good move without going over the top.

There's nothing to say Core and HC have to be the same.

Not sure about the standard playlist, but MTDM should not have a point increase ever. That game mode is painfully slow and would probably work better with a point decrease
