One of the major complaints in every FPS game nowadays is that too many gamers, who worry about their K/D’s, play objective modes. Why is that bad, you ask? This causes the core element of objective modes—-team play—-to be thrown out the window.

To combat this major problem, Battlefield 3 is introducing a team deathmatch mode, which, in the words of DICE’s Senior Gameplay Designer Alan Kertz, should “attract KD ppl away from objective modes.”

This news came from Kertz’s Twitter, where a fan suggested that Battlefield shouldn’t track Kill/Death ratios—-only Win/Loss ratios.

Kertz responded, “We track Kills and Deaths, showing the ratio is just a convenience. TDM should attract KD ppl away from objective modes.”

While there will still be K/D-focused gamers in objective modes, hopefully a team deathmatch mode will funnel some of those players away from the core element of Battlefield multiplayer.

I think this is a good idea in theory, but there is always a good possibility that it might not work as well as they hope. An example would be the Big Team Battle - bomb mode in Halo: Reach(I have forgot the proper name of this mode/modes). In some matches you get a team focused upon the objective, in others you find that you and a few are on the objective whilst the rest are focused on their kill/death ratios. However I do hope that this plan works in the majority of times, so that it is a more balanced online experience for those who play it.

I hear, Darkwings. You're talking about Assault, and yes, I've personally experienced carrying the bomb to the objective unsupported while everyone just tries to kill everyone else. And this happens to me a lot. Sad, that.

Thanks, that is the mode, where each side has a bomb, I was the one doing objective, managed to score one somehow. Rest of the team were to the side, totally ignoring the warthog which carried the bombs. It is annoying but still a fun game to play when I need something to do while I think.
