    PROTECT YOUR KING

    Similar to CTF.
    1 player of each team gets chosen as "The King", this player is similar to a knight (difference should be; no defensive abilities, and a unique outfit, so the king can be distinguished), has 1000 HP, and 1 HITS every enemy, but as soon as the king dies the game is over, kind of like chess.

    The best tactic is to let the king stay inside safety, but you can also use him to advance the frontline, but due to the king having NO defense, he should be guarded, else his HP might drop faster than expected.


    What do you guys think?
    I think we NEED this game mode, the game's name is afterall; "King Arthur's Gold",

    It sounds clever, but in the end it will boil down to "attack with King until his HP is low, then retreat and turtle."
    Requiring a player to turtle for the sake of the team does not sound like much fun for the player in question.

    First off, the game's called King Arthur's Gold because there used to be a mode where you had to steal/get the most gold, almost like a race, also there was a SNES game called "King Arthur's World" which was a huge inspiration to MM.
    Secondly, 1000HP sounds extremely overpowered. Just like that one-hit-k.o. thing.
    In the end, it doesn't sound like you put any thought into balance. You'll have to mod this yourself if you want it.

    Some things can ofcourse be tweaked, dont you think?
    But yeah well don't actually give a f*ck if it happens or not, just had to share it.
    Its not like I spend more than 1 hour a day on this game anyway.

    Not sure if you're trying to offend someone, but the moment you do so, this thread will probably get closed.
    Children don't need to hear your filth.

    To the mod idea, seems extremely unbalanced, and not sure if even fun.
    The problems would be for example, what if the king is a faggot.
    Maybe voting for the king, yet still... Meh, I don't see this very successul.

    I understood most of this, and I came to the conclusion that this would be...

    Essentially Invasion with cores that attack.

    I like the idea, I honestly do. It's the fact that there are some things in pub matches that you can't stop from happening. One team could be playing legit while the other is digging a deep ass hole in their base, and hiding the king in there. Which I am assuming would not be the point of the game mode.But I do like the concept.

    What about the King being a npc (or even princess Geti) with a "retreat" behaviour (goes to closest room of its team).

    That gets me thinking... Why the heck do we capture flags, not princesses? What use do knights have in a flag? At least they can have fun with princesses

    I agree maybe it should just relying on the natrual map and no builders and all players spawn at th king and the map would be a giant dynamic map with all neutral traps and doors.

    I just wish there was a Kill The Princess where each team has a princess with a large amount of health and stays in one place, always, like a flag, and you must defend her, the first team to destroy the princess wins, there can be multiple princesses, basically sort of like the main gamemode from LoL. (which I don't play.)

    Honestly, I just want an Invasion or DTC (Destroy The Core) gamemode that can have multiple cores, that have a large health, and can heal.
