I'm not knocking any of the current game modes. They all seem fun and interesting, but it would be nice to see a little more development as far as the game modes in multiplayer go. One scenario that seems cool to me would be an actual attack vs defense game mode. Even though there are both attackers and defenders in Dominion, it doesn't mean anything. Both sides attack points they don't have and defend the ones they do. It would be cool if one team was in the castle, and the other must siege the castle. You could also throw more elements into it to make it more interesting (like maybe the attacking team must first escort their battering ram or make the defending team retreat to the castle first or maybe if the attacking team makes it into the castle the defending team starts to break but can still win if they push the attackers back to a certain point). With that being said, I currently do enjoy the ideas behind the other game modes, but it would be cool to see some other competitive elements added into them.

Agreed, I talked to my friends about a very similar game mode you suggest and think it would be a nice change of pace to the current game modes. While I have no problems with the current modes, more variety is always nice. TBH I would be kind of surprised if they hadn't at least considered something like this given the general aesthetic of the game. Maybe a future DLC, or a nice little surprise they have been holding back until launch. One can hope.

I also think some sort of last man standing game mode would be cool. Like either a FFA 24 man battle royale. Or 12 teams of 2 or something. They would need some larger maps for something like this though. But I think it would be hard to make a game mode like this work within the current framework of their game. Like it could be done, but it wouldn't play very well and gank situations could get crazy out of control making it not so fun. But this type of game mode is usually quite fun and really gets the adrenaline pumping being among the last few players left after a 20 man slaughter fest before that.

Another game mode I would like to see is some kind of mini tournament mode for duels. Like you queue up for an 8 man/team single or double elimination style tournament bracket. Each round fought as a 1v1 or 2v2 duel.
