At this moment in time, there are too many people hosting captures rather than joining.

 

Just gone through 17 lobbies in a row with only the host sitting in them. If I'm lucky the lobby has an extra player in it which leaves soon after I join.

 

Oh and then launching session into a timed out error, oh lovely - Go straight back to storymode, do not pass begin and do not collect your $200. For an online game, I spend more time in storymode and error message screens than actually online.

9k to the losers is decent for those who are not a farmer  :)

 

9k for winning is almost as much as the prize for winning some races.

Best work around might be join a random race for example, and wait for voting screen to display a capture, prehaps then the lure of x2 rp and cash might be the carrot needed.

Just a heads up, but a 2v2 win on All Abhorred nets you $28k and 5k RP.

The capture mode with the buses is the worst one, it is back and forth destroying each other's buses so nobody ever got to deliver them

I basically treat that one like cod domination. Camping and sniping lol. I never move on that one.

 

Youre disgusting :)

 

OT, im in the lobby of a capture job and its taking forever to get enough people, COME ON PEOPLE PLAY MORE CAPTURE MODE!! (on free-aim)

Recently tried for the first time with my crew.  We had hoped to meet rival crews but every time a few joined they would leave straight away and we ended up having to share our crew members out with randoms.   

This isn't really a problem in general and no fix is needed in this regard, but personally I play worse against crew and friends, some sort of dumb mental loyalty issue where I find it harder to shoot at them so they own me bad lol.

Payouts are great against time spent and even better if the people you play with mix it up with missions, races, jumps etc etc.

This is one of the reasons that I don't host jobs. I know there's a TON of people that are hosting jobs at any given minute of the day. These people like to be in charge of the room and options. I on the other hand don't care about the settings and will follow whatever rules that the host sets....I just want a game with 8+ people. How hard is that?!? Let me see the open lobbies and choose one to join.

Having just played one myself, what a load of crap they really are. I don't care if their giving away a million dollars and 20 levels every game, I won't waste my time on them.

Seriously? What is wrong with the capture in which you have to get the briefcase from the end of the pier? That one is awesome. Takes some real teamwork. Oh, wait, that must be it, you want to Rambo everything because you are so good at the game.....is that it?

This was the one you have the bikes in the canyon. 2v2. Seriously why anyone would waste their time is beyond me.

Haha...that one is pretty fun. The NPCs make it way more interesting. That's definitely one for a larger lobby though.... :/

Because it's slightly more entertaining than the kill-die-kill-die-die-die-kill-game over that characterises most deathmatches. You have to actually work as a team.

 

If your team is stupid, however, then it can be pretty annoying when it feels like you're doing all the work.

God forbid someone have a different opinion than yours.  I think capture is fun, not as well implemented as CTF in other games, but fun nonetheless

Sorry. I find a challenge versus other real life players to be fun. What exactly did you not find fun about that one? What in the world was it about that one that makes pins in your eyes a better alternative?

I have loved capture from the start but only ever managed to play a couple of full games the whole time they have been out. Hopefully people will start playing them now

I must admit I've never played a capture game before today, and the only reason I played was it got voted for by the group of people I was playing with.

The one we played was at an airfield. Six of us. It was such good fun, it actually reminded me a bit of free roam to an extent and also needed a bit of team effort too. We wasn't on mics but I can imagine a group of people on mics speaking team talk tactics would of made it a much more enjoyable experience. It was on a timer of 10 minutes for the match.

And the best thing is it paid $22,000 to us for winning and about 3000 rp. 

I for one hope capture starts to take off now.

I did almost exactly the same thing last night on Post Op I think it was called. Three pairs each with a relatively high level (90+) and sub level 20 player.

 

I stood out the front of the depot with my Minigun and let my teammate doing all the driving :)

Kamikaze whoever is destroying the buses.  That's what I did and we ended up winning lol.

Played a round of capture today with a couple crew mates...absolutely shredded the other team. They didn't even look like they knew what the hell was going on. I'd play capture more then any other mode if other people actually did, so here's hoping activity starts to pick up. *crosses fingers*

"Capture mode" and "fun" should not be in the same sentence.

I played one time. Some bullsh*t where two teams had to steal greyhound buses. Nobody got sh*t and the time expired. Just auto aiming the drivers and spawning and repeat. I don't think a single bus got further than a block down the road.
