Apparently WG has removed from the game since one of the last patches the Assault mode on Sand River. I think there are a lot of players who did enjoy this mode on that map and I think it should be reintroduced into the game. 

 

Perhaps the map is not very balanced in this mode, but I think it was a lot of fun and even more fun than the other 2 modes. 

 

What do you think? Please vote if you like to. Thanks!

I like standard. That is for all maps even if I like assault better. i think that is fair that every map should be neutral, or to give equall chance for everyone. For example, I hate play deffence in Siegfried Line and somethimes I play 5-6 games in a roll like that. Pain in the @ss.

Assault gamemode itself is a real tragedy, which is a real shame, because when well implemented the mode has a lot of potential but as for now its mostly just a relic from the past which WG has completely, purposefully or not, forgot.

If your scouts are dumb you have no chance in an assault game.Its clearly a trash mode.But i keep it open for more top tier games.FeelsBadMan.

It's standard mode they should have removed as its poor gameplay, and reintroduced the old sand river map for assault and encounter

Nope, too unbalanced in favour of the defending team. But then it got replaced by the new Erlenberg Assault which is even more in favour of the defending team with an entire jungle worth of trees next to their cap-zone.

I think you voted Yes from defending team perspective.

Win rate for defenders was overwhelming.

Plus almost all games attackers were just camping until game ended.

 

I'm glad they removed it.

 

I don't understand why they kept Mines encounter. That's another unballanced for South spawn.

If they balanced it then yes, but an unfixed version then no, it was horribly broken.

 

IIRC the defending side had like over a 65% WR. 

 

Can you imagine a defending team on Sand River Assault with an Obj. 268v4 on that team, that is pretty much a 100% win. 

 

The issue with assault is most of the time it's too easy for the defenders to just camp and win due to bad map design, it could be a good mode but they need to fix the maps so defenders don't have such good camping positions so they have to come out and fight to defend properly.
