I don't think the most people know this and I just found out about it so I thought I'd post it up. I was wondering why there were control points(those big pillars) in modes other than Annexation. The game's manual states:
"In any other Control Point game mode, Friendly control points grant your entire team bonus effects such as Speed Bonus, Damage Bonus, Health Bonus, or even an XP Bonus."
Just to emphasize the importance of capping them asap because players tend to leave them alone during TDM or SharedStock. I just played a TDM on streets by myself against 3 players and I won by about 15 points--I had all three control points most of the game ;)
...and thats 'another' plus to movement speed for those of you complaining that its too slow.
