New BBall game for 6 people

The map is ctf_ballin_mountain.

The classes are 2 Quick-Fix Medics, 3 Trolldiers and 1 Direct Hit Soldier.

Each team has a Medic who is the only one allowed to cap and you're either trying to crush the enemy or airshot them.

Heres a video of some friends and I playing this after discussing how it would work.

I'm calling it Screaming Eagles. Its amazing fun for messing around with friends or team building with your sixes team.

Is that a typo, or does only one team get a DH soldier? I'm sure I could find out from the video, but I haven't noticed a red DH soldier in the couple of minutes I've been watching.

Looks pretty interesting.

Ah. I guess I automatically assumed that six players equalled three players per team to the point that I didn't notice the mismatched teams while watching the vid.

It makes the Viewmodel smaller so I can still see it but it doesn't obscure the screen.

I also think it looks cooler.

1. Why is it asymmetric?
2. Why should I play this instead of normal bball?

1. Because watching a Direct Hit Soldier getting mantread is hilarious.

2. Because this requires your Medic to cap, so you have to protect him and he needs you to get up there. It makes you work as a team and helps with team practice.

Could there be a way for this game mode to have more than six players?
I know it might be unbalanced but 6 seems too small in my opinion.

It could do but it less of a gamemode and more a mess around with your team.

Now, this is a story all about how
My K/D ratio got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the Admin of a server called Bel Air

In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the trade ground was where I spent most of my days
Paintin' out tradin' scammin' all cool
And all sniping some noobies outside of the school
When a couple of players who were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little duel and my mom got scared
She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air'

I'd think it would be better if everyone was a Trolldier apart from the QF Medics.
