So why play Dom if you aren't going to even try and capture a flag?

It really kinda pisses me off.

It's like people are allergic to the flags, especially B, which nobody seems to want to take ever. I'm the only idiot diving onto that thing and even with smokes, flak, etc it's really difficult to take or even maintain by yourself.

Why does this keep happening almost every game? I think I'm going to have to find a new game mode to play.

Because when people dive onto the flag with smoke, flak, etc it's really difficult to take.

Yeah, if everyone did that you'd never take it. I used to be the jump on with smoke and flak jacket but it's more useful to your team to, say, earn a lightning strike, strike all the routes from their base to B (i.e. the ramps in meltdown) and then jump on as they all try and run back to defend

Yeah, I'm not implying that I smoke and dive on every flag. What I'm saying is it seems to be only me trying to actually take B, regardless of how I take it.

I played a match on Nuketown last night where 3 out of 6 players on my team had 0 captures.

That means they didn't even take the 2 easy "spawn flags" at the start of each round

I never take the spawn flags. Helps me get a good vantage point on the other team as the head to b.

And also I've had many games where I never got one capture point. Defending is part of the game too.

I agree with you OP. My buddy and I used to only play Dom, but we found that no one actually plays it the way it should be played. A lot of people just run around like its team death match. Its brutal. I can commiserate with you.
