    Was wondering if it would be possible to make a KoTH map with 3 points, where the team with the majority of the points has their timer count down, and at 0 wins, and if a team owns all points the timer counts down even faster.

    It would be entirely possible, but would require some mathematical entity work.

    Something along the lines of using math_counters and logic_compare to figure out how many points a team owns, then using the inputs to pause/start timer, and to make it countdown faster, removing 2s every second or something.

    If you can't figure it out, I'm sure someone could better help you. But it's possible.

    So effectively the same as a 3-point Conquest-mode (from the Battlefield series), except with time instead of tickets. It is entirely possible, with the implications Aly set forth.

    BOOJUM, WE NEED YOU.

    I can attest that it's been done with two, though with a hilarious bug with the announcer. Since 3 would only make this bug more amusing, I am in favour of it.

    math counter ranging from -3 to 3.
    blu capturing a point adds one point to the counter
    red capturing a point subtracts one point to the counter
    when counter reaches -3, red timer is activated.
    when counter reaches +3, blu timer is activated

    The above system assumes that the countdown is only active when one team controls all three cp's.

    That, however, can lead to a very long game.

    There you go, vmf and bsp.
    There's a hidden visgroup that enables the "faster clock when owning all cps". I left this OFF because it's terrible, mostly becauTIMEHASBEENADDEDTIMEHASBEENADDEDTIMEHASBEENADDEDTIMEHASBEENADDEDTIMEHASBEENADDEDTIMEHASBEENADDEDTIMEHASBEENADDEDTIMEHASBEENADDED.
    Anyway, I left it there (hidden) because you might find something else to do with the "owning all cps" thing.

    (also math_counters??.. pfff, terrible)

    Ravidge, stop. Making fun of us for not knowing what we're doing with entities is Boojum's job.

    If it makes you feel any better, I had to ask boojum for help to figure out how to deal with the issue where the mid cp can potentially remain uncapped for the entire game (and thus the koth timer would do nothing on 0:00)
