Why not add another pvp mode (but competitive), more points to take but slower gameplay (like hardcore coop). slower steps, more objective oriented. lets say 10vs10 for now as maps are big in the game.
died ? re-spawn when point taken and without full eq.
reason why im saying this is: in competitive gameplay pvp ppl are rushing and gamplay can get to let's say "less immersive".
take "rushing like csgo B style" out - and just try to make that mode and ppl will start coming back here. in previous version of insurgency ppl were more tactical. here is based on who will take point faster. not smarter. throw meat and maybe win. and that's the reason game is started to be more boring and predictable.
its ofc for scenario like push only for now. it would be easier for developers as they have bots in place but instead bots - put real players.
maybe less points - but u died and ur team didn't take point? game over. make it more hardcore(again) if u can.
