As many of you will be aware, there's a gamemode in FH2 which I wrote and named "Gold Rush". It's a twist on classic CTF.

For your amusement, I present the following:

The first is from July '06, when I came up with the concept and created the Gold Ingot model, texture and code. This is a quick render of the model from back then, to show to the team and help explain the concept.

Second is from August '07, from during the later stages of development of Goldrush in FH2. This is very close to what shipped in December '07.

Finally, here's a capture from a video released two weeks ago at GDC '08 in San Francisco, from Battlefield: Bad Company. It shows a gamemode where (reportedly) you play CTF with gold ingots, and is called... Gold Rush.

Obviously I'm not accusing anyone of anything, I'm making this observation purely for your entertainment :)

To be fair, Ctz, I believe that screenshot is from a video of singleplayer, where the storyline is about a group of soldiers looking for gold while carrying out tough assignments for the US Military. I've not heard anything of a multiplayer 'goldrush' gametype, though such a thing would be amusing :D

The IGN preview says: "Gold also plays a strong part in multiplayer. The focus in Bad Company's main multiplayer mode--titled Gold Rush--is on keeping control of large gold crates. Gold Rush pits two teams against each other in a checkpoint-style mode with a twist. The defending team has to protect a pair of large gold crates, while the attacking team needs to achieve the exact opposite."

Which makes it sound a lot more like standard CQ.

Haha, wow.

Although tbh the plot for Bad Company was developed months before FH2 was released and Goldrush was publicly known about - I would be surprised if this really was ripped off from you guys.

(devil's advocate, I know, sorry)

This is like back in time when Galactic Conquest was in the babyshoes. Lucasarts sees the succesful release of the second big release of the mod and just a month or two later they announce Battlefront, which amazingly had a mode called "Galactic Conquest" in it...

Damn cheapers.

I don't think I've EVER seen or played this mode in FH2. Are servers even running it? It would be a ton of fun on a 32 player server, I think.
