Anyone who knows who I am or understand the FuQ lifestyle, should understand why I don't understand CZ.

Could someone break it down full on nooby boobie for me? Also, is playing without a time limit really the norm?
Do points matter at all?
THanks for any help on this game mode.

Well it ain't graffiti that's for sure haha. The reason why people like to play control zone is that there is more interaction between the players. It's all about the mind games, for instance the 1x zone at the start of airport. When you want to grab it you have to turn back to get the other zones. The opponent has to guess will he take the left side, the right side, will he go through the toilets, over the lamps or will he make his way out through the helicopter spot. That interaction is what makes the game fun, CTF and KOTH are similar in that sense, but a bit more linear.

There are several reasons why people play these games without a time limit. First one is that when playing it with the mindset I described above, it makes more sense to collect all zones, rather than to play for the point multipliers. Also when you set a timer you basically don't want to have the key when the timer hits 0, because the only way to win with the key is to outcombo him while being at constant risk of losing the key. Also games like CZ and/or CTF can get really intense before the time is up. It's a huge anticlimax if you just won a hard fought game and then the other player just picks up the key/flag after time and makes a couple of xtc or xtz, which basically any decent player is able to do. Not to mention the time the other player(s) have to wait for this guy to finish his combo.

So yes, CZ is often played with 1 times all zones (sometimes 2 times all zones). And CTF is often played 5 minutes or first to 5 captures. Both without any extra time captures/zones.

Yes, but why is the rum gone?

Good info, thank you for all of it. Tell me something, does the team who captures all the zones automatically win? Points don't matter at all? And as long as I have the key, I can take any zone back from the other team? I dont need more points and the key, is what I am asking there.

Yeah the points are irrelevant. All you need is to control all the zones.
