I just got into a 2v1, I was the 1, playing Rook. The thing that got me, is first of all we were playing with 3 people on a giant map (Zikurat) and the gametype was Dominate. For those of you who don't know what dominate is, it means you have to hold flags to win. I am playing Rook. On a giant map. Against two people (no ai). What the hell? Even the most retarded players out there could easily hold more flags in a 2v1. I can understand maybe a person winning by themselves in Conquest or Fortress....but in Dominate that just isn't even possible. I would have to spend every piece of gold I earned on teleport scrolls and capture locks to have a remote chance of losing with any kind of dignity.
How does this kind of thing even make it into the game? It was in beta right? Did anybody play the game during that time period? Not that it really matters, Pantheon is such a joke. I have never heard of an automatching system that will create 2v1s or worse yet, put ai controlled players in the game to feed the opponants gold. The only way to really play this game that is worth a damn is custom games, and it is still a pain in the ass.
I think this is the first Pantheon game I have lost...so maybe that increased my chances of getting a 2v1. But if 2v1s are going to be possible the 'Dominate' gametype needs to be removed from Pantheon entirely.
