Why does nobody play Rabbit?
Surprised and disappointed to find this is the case - after a hiatus I was pleased to see Rabbit mode having been enabled and excited to try it. Alas, no go.

What's wrong with the game mode? Being wildly chased by every other player on the server sounds fun enough to me - and Deathmatch seems popular enough and is nearly the same.

I hope hi-rez will make it official

As I remember, there are official servers, just nobody plays on them. Not sure why though.

Rabbit sucks when the flag carrier just evasively skis around rather than deathmatching. It's easier to get away and avoid chase in this game than previous ones.

I personally love Rabbit and would play regardless.

The reason the mode is deactivated is because there is, or at least was, an unresolved bug in rabbit where for some reason you could end up against the rabbit AND against the other players as if it were a 1 v 1 v X

It's deactivated? I thought there were still official servers up and running when I played today. I skipped into a CTF match rather quickly though, so I'm not entirely sure if this is accurate or not.

If it is hard to people to hit you on the ground, imagine how should be to these people to kill a good rabbit. That's because it isn't a popular game mode. Anyways, people with rank 30+ often play it in the pomf custom server.

yeah the pomf custom server is the only one i've played it on. it's fun... for a while.

I've played it very recently, and there was a serious bug with who was on your team or not. Sometimes you were chasing the rabbit and everyone else was against you for no reason, and sometimes you were the rabbit and had people on your team. An amazing mode, but there's flaws in the team selection system, so I think that may be why people don't play it so much.

I admittedly posted this thread without having actually loaded up the Rabbit mode myself. Now that I've seen it it becomes entirely too clear why it isn't played: It's broken. Rabbit is supposed to be rabbit vs everybody else, but instead it's a complete, random mess where people will get switched onto the rabbit's team and whatnot.

That said, I still doubt it would be played even if it worked because I don't think many players are venturing anywhere but CTF modes. It's a shame because Rabbit is actually lots of fun - you can test a working (modded) version out of it for yourself on APC's Rabbit server and others. Problem is, you won't find many players there.

Hi-Rez' rabbit version is a great disappointment for me as I've otherwise found their support for the game very good. Rabbit mode should never have been reopened, however, it makes no sense to enable a game mode that will only leave a sour taste in any unfortunate player's mouth instead of waiting until it is playable and releasing it with a genuine launch event.
