ESB Hardline Council #1 – Discussing Game Modes and Rules


ESB Hardline Council #1 – Discussing Game Modes and Rules

During this first Hardline Council we will be discussing a variety of topics, designed to give us initial ideas regarding what needs to be looked at, and how a Hardline ESB Ruleset would start to look like. We would like to invited all Xbox One and PlayStation 4 competitive teams to participate.

  • What Weapons/Gadgets should be restricted?

We’ve already had many suggestions, battlepack weapons being banned (Deluxe Edition Items), DLC (Like in BF4), high damage output weapons such as the AKM or certain enforcer weapons, high ROF weapons such as the K10, the idea of having an M16/416 promod scene only.

We’ve been listening but want to know more, what weapons and gadgets would you like to see banned?

  • Which game modes and formats should be played?

The eSport labeled game modes out of the box are Rescue and Crosshair, some like only one, some like both, some neither. There are still a lot of ideas about other modes that could fit the 5v5 scene such as Heist, Conquest Small and some even say Blood Money.

Should we go for a Rescue/Conquest Small/Rescue BO3 rotation similar to what we did in Battlefield 4 with Domination/Defuse and Domination/Obliteration. Should we go single game modes? or 3 Game modes per match: Rescue/Conquest Small/Heist?

How does the 15v15 Conquest scene from Battlefield 4 translate over to Hardline? Is it time to go the 8v8/10v10 way on console as well seeing how the current maps are set up?

Come with your ideas and let us know what you think should be tested out first as soon as servers drop for consoles.

  • Should certain areas of maps be off limits?

The main items that come up in these discussions are rooftops. Certain rooftops have stairs which lead up to them, some have ladders only, some have both, and some neither. Which ones should be banned and which ones should be allowed? Does the grappling hook remove some of the existing roof problems? Are there any other areas of specific maps that you believe should be restricted? Come let us know.


The meeting will be held on Saturday March 28th at 4pm EDT / 9pm CET.
