    I suggest everyone has two deaths allotted,, and any over two will forfeit ther coins for that match! Should help curb some of the super suiciders.

    Still no devs comments on this...TDM on ranked is a joke. I ain't got two ships to play, i only like speeder. I don't want to be forced to play two ships...this is not the old battle bay i loved.

    Though it does fit with their recent P2W strategy.

    Maybe I was a bit harsh earlier and I hope I am wrong and the normal ranked battle mode will still exist next tot the new one.

    What I’m hoping is that since infamy will now be on the line, people won’t play like mindless berserker robots. Also, if HTDM is infamy based, I won’t be playing against @YSL, Weeze, AM, Charlie Conway and Godlike all in same team, so it may be easier.

    I wouldn't hold out hope. There is ZERO indication that normal(team elimination) ranked battle mode will still exist for infamy matches. The update video was pretty clear.
    Infamy Battles will now be Hardcore Team Deathmatch (with two ships needed to play)
    Casual Battles(non-infamy) will be the traditional Team Elimination(no respawn) battles.

    To me this is a huge mistake and basically changes BattleBay forever to a mindless respawn-fest.

    The only thing that seems in question is whether you will be able to equip the sames items to both ships. My gut tells me you won't be able to. The developers want everyone to be able to equip two ships and want people to spend money to do it.

    In the 4.2 Sneak Peek video they specially say that you MUST equip at least two boats. And if you notice when you die, you cannot select the ship(shooter) which you just died from.
    They also specially say that Rank Battles are now Hardcore Team Deathmatch.

    The funniest thing in the video is when the narrator says "Team Deathmatch" is their "Popular" new gamemode. LOL LOL. I don't know how he didn't laugh when he said that.

    We all know what is coming. The community was never asked for feedback on these changes. We just have to live with it.

    Er... Pardon me Rovio, but the amount of people griping about TDM being boring and asking for more CTF/Cap Or Kill events makes me doubt that... not to mention that literally everyone seems to hate TDM becoming ranked and Team Elimination becoming casual.

    I am waiting to see what the update is about, because my english is not good enough to anderstand all the changes about battle modes.
    I am a bit afraid because what i like is normal mode, and i agree with flint messages i read. I don't like deathmatches. I play them because we don't have choice, this is the place to win rewards (perks or puzzle pieces) and this is were to score the most for guild quest. And because of that the waiting period before normal mode become very long. Very frustrating. Developer should'nt think we all like tdm and that is what we want. Tdm is horrible game play, just running to the fight whatever the way it is, just respaw and run again... This not fun at all. Succes of tdm is really because we don't have choice to play it ! Ranked normal mode is the original mode, the one that make bbay succes. The one for Real warrior that are not afraid to play infamy. I'm not sure i will like the update but i wait to see it because i don't really anderstand it for the moment. I played everyday since maybe may 2017. But i didn't like most of the update and i'm scare it is loosing bbay DNA... Hope i'm wrong but i'm not scare anymore to leave the game if i don't like changes...

    Currently the speculation is torpedo/ mine shield and a new torpedo.
    The shield would be kind of cool but what else can be done with a torpedo that we don't already have?

    Possible has slight targeting systems or shoots a bunch of mini torpedos like a Gatling gun.
