    I'm working on a new map, and I am playing with the idea that the first team to capture 3 out of 5 points in any order wins. It is an unusual concept I know, but maybe has potential.

    Can such a thing be done?

    Quick question. Why?

    There are many factors that can make this sort of map an unfair game.

    For example: What if a team is stacked? The other team wouldn't stand a chance, for there only needs to be 3 points capped. Whereas on regular CP maps, 5 points gives them a chance, let alone both teams if one isn't power stacked.

    I mean, it's a nice concept, but there are things you'll have to do to even things out for both teams.

    Have OnCapTeamX output to a math_counter (one for each team), have the counter's max value set to 3, have it's OnHitMax send SetWinner to the team_control_point_master. (possibly SetWinnerAndForceCaps, not sure which would be better for this case)

    Aha, thank you boojum! I'm going to test this out and post my results. :wow:


    @kirby: the project won't play out like the post implies. The points are not all available all the time so it won't be like a big room with 5 points for a scout swarm :)

    I was thinking about it, and I have a suggestion.

    Instead of making it the best 3 out of 5, just make it 3. But have both teams cap their own "last point" first, then to the center point, then to the enemy's point.
