    Hello CTFers!

    Over a year ago the CTF committee did a Q&A session to have some communication between players and staff. Now that a major update has come out, and a new map wave will be starting, we think now is the perfect time to do another Q&A session. You can ask any question you want, whether it's about teams, updates, classes, reworks, opinions, etc. We'll try our best to answer all the questions you ask. You can ask these questions by either replying to this thread using the format:
    or, if you want to remain anonymous, you can respond to this form.

    There will be a 1 week time period for you to submit your questions. After Monday, April 29th, we'll no longer be accepting questions. At this point, we'll process the questions and find an appropriate time for us to do the actual Q&A session. We'll answer the questions in a stream, host TBD, and after we answer all the questions from this thread and the form, we'll then take any questions from the live comments.

    Until next time,
    CTF Staff Team.

    I know there has been a lot of mixed feelings about the Engineer rework, while I would have preferred this rework become its own class entirely, and find a better way to rework engineer in a similar way to its previous incarnations.

    - Do you plan to rework necro by removing its mobs and changing it completely while keeping the necro theme (as it was suggested in a few reworks) or by making them more useful and fix mob AI (idk if that's possible though)?
    - Don't you think that the current engineer doesn't really seem like an engineer anymore? And if so, what are you going to do to fix that?
    - Do you plan on adding (or thinking about at least) a new healing class, with medic being the only healing class?

    Would you consider taking engineer in a different direction and giving the grenade launcher it’s own class?

    I’ve heard complaints about defense being too strong now. Would you consider adding a new offensive class in the future? If so what are your ideas for a potential offensive class?

    What are your ideas on “reviving brawl/CTF”. For example, adding some sort of advertisement in the form of more beneficial rewards from voting or hiring some big youtubers?

    In the time leading up to the new update there was a fair amount of discussion on stalemates. Although the new updates (mostly scout) probably help recovery, I don't think this will overcome medic being too strong at support and ninja being too strong at killing every recov class (not that we've had officials to find out yet zzz). Does the staff team plan to revisit stalemates? Does it consider the update has done enough to fix this problem?

    I suppose more generally, where do you think the game sits in terms of balance and what are the biggest outliers at the moment?

    I think a good way to get more exposure for ctf and brawl as a whole would be to do a "catching hackers" series, as those are generally pretty popular on youtube. Would anyone on staff be willing to attempt that?

    -What do you think of a class or mechanic that can accelerate cooldowns on abilities (mana bar + timers)?
    -Any ideas on new events or booster packs for the future?
    -Albeit farther off than the pressing concerns of reworking Dwarf and Necro, what are current thoughts on any Elf tweaks?
    -Any current ideas for advertising / increasing player base?
    -Very large lack of bans lately and an understandingly decent amount of regular players hacking. Even though it is very hard to ban people with the current policies in place, will the low ban count change in the near future?

    Some fun questions:
    -CTF Staff Member's favorite / least favorite maps
    -Best player of each class right now
    -Best custom weapon names you've seen

    What are your plans for the Elf buff / rework? What is your opinion on the wind rework formula that 915 submitted to redslime earlier this year? When do you see the buff being implemented?

    Thanks.

    With the new Brawl Hytale discord server, will Brawl be transferring Hytale 100%? If so, will stats and purchases be carried like the McPvP - Brawl transfer?

    Why isn't there something in the brawl shop that you can purchase that can give you the option to toggle from the banner flag and the wool version

    Perhaps make it work as when you toggle from flag to flag, your chosen flag will go into effect after your current match is over
