There is still no TDM on any community servers for me (EU/US East).
TDM was an excellent training arena, especially for new players to ease them into the game. It was a sort of shooting range with live targets. I thought it bridged the gap really well between offline practice and online play.
The atmosphere was much more relaxed than other game modes, partly due to fewer pressures on each individual to perform well. You could mess with all the weapons and attachments and try risky new combat tactics and shenanigans that you wouldn't necessarily want to try out in other arenas.
A happy side-effect of the awesome instant respawn was that I knew I wasn't being spectated, which I personally fucking hate.
I honestly thought NWI had saved the game from the jaws of death when they introduced TDM mode .
Please bring it back to official servers...
