so i generally like the horde/survival modes in games, so why not make it happen for dreadnought as well....
have a normal team of 5 defend one or several objectives from waves of AI enemies that get harder each time, maybe the last wave can have a boss-ship bigger than the dreadnoughts :D
this might also work with pvp, having an enemy team trying to take down several objectives, there'd have to be certain advantages/disadvantages to being on the offense/defense
(there is allready a thread covering something like this right here )
allthough i thoroughly enjoy the 5v5 arena concept, sometimes it feels like i need a bigger scale match, it gives you more tactical options and variations (also more pewpew)...
of coures you'd need to put in regulations on how many ships of one class can be used by a team at a time
these are just my rough ideas, discuss, critisize
