Don’t see what the issue is. MS doesn’t want indies to treat the XB1 as a second class platform.
Just look at the mobile space. Games launch on iOS first, then Android, and if the developers get really bored, Windows Phone. If somebody is REALLY into mobile games guess which phone they aren’t going to pick…
If somebody is REALLY into indie games on consoles and they find out XB1 always gets those games after PS4 then guess what? MS isn’t saying put them on a pedestal, they just want equality.
Attrition is the equivalent of Team Deathmatch, with a catch: enemy grunts and spectres also count toward the point total necessary to score a win.
I would have to argue that Pilot Hunder is the TDM equivalent while Attrition is an objective game mode: objective being to farm grunts and keep enemy pilots from farming grunts by killing them.
Hopefully all the lone wolfs who treat every mode as TDM stay in the Pilot Hunter playlist…
