YOLO. or do you?
Please explain to me the draw of game modes like Arena, and Saxton Hale? Neither of them are very fun for me, and I find them a bit ridiculous. I don't mind Arena mode so much, but I find Saxton Hale to be nothing but a frantic search for a good place to camp with as many other players between myself and the SH as possible. My only complaint about Arena or Death Match is that, at least in my experience, I haven't played a game with a kill cap. Like "play to 25 kills" or something like that. I really appreciate the unique gameplay of Team Fortress 2 and I'm not asking for anyone to turn it into a different game, I just find it odd that I haven't encountered a more traditional death match mode.
P.S. Also, excuse the rambling, but what exactly is the appeal of Saxton Hale? I seriously find myself hugging the wall and firing rockets through crowds of team mates. I've played a few dozen matches with 0 success.
