Blitz — how does it work?
And now a little tutorial about Blitz…
Just like Capture the Flag, this here is a team game as well, meaning players will be split in two teams once again. For changing teams, etc. the same applies as for Capture the Flag!
Ok so how do I explain this. One of the teams is the „attacker“, and the other is the „defender“. As the defender, there will be a checkpoint and you must make sure that the opponent team doesn’t drive through this checkpoint. This checkpoint will be in the middle of an area which is marked as blue on the map. And the sky will be blue too, I mean as long as you’re in that area (it’s like a big blue bubble), there will be a blue filter of all of what you see. A bit like in the „nightmare“ mode during missions. And what’s that blue area for? Well, inside this blue area, opponents can’t shift. So they will shift outside of it, to take a car, then they will drive in the blue zone (where they can’t shift) and finally attempt to reach the checkpoint. As soon as you touch them, they are eliminated. There’s usually a lot of small streets leading to the checkpoint, so you must make sure to „protect“ everything. For each car that drives through the checkpoint, there’s some points. The ultimate trick here to avoid cars getting to the checkpoint is make road blocks, possibly with heavy vehicles, and then once they are about to hit the road block, or trying to get through it, shift into that vehicle which will automatically eliminate them since they „touched“ you. However, YOU can shift in that area. It’s only for them that it isn’t possible. It’s pretty simple actually. And for everyone point they make, the „zone“ will become smaller, meaning they can shift nearbier and you won’t see them coming as fast. Because they will be closer to the checkpoint. So it becomes harder for you to have control.
And now the second part, when you are the „attacker“. Basically, the „blue area“ will be red this time. It’s inside the red zone that you won’t be able to shift anymore. You pick cars from outside that zones and then try to find your way to the inside of it, to get to the checkpoint. Obviously this time, you will need to avoid getting touched by the other team. If they made roadblocks, and nobody is in the cars, a heavy vehicle to get through is good. Same thing, for each point you make the zone becomes smaller, so it’s easier to make points.
Well, I think that’s it pretty much for this one. As for the points etc, it’s the same like Capture the Flag.
