Despite being the community’s second favorite Arcade mode (source : a poll made by Jeff himself : Poll: What's your favorite Arcade Mode? ), Total Mayhem hasn’t been playable in the Arcade for over a month, not even in the daily rotation.
Now, what bothers me is the fact that Jeff mentioned not so long ago that he would straight up remove Total Mayhem if he could.
So… What if we reached that point ? What if this gamemode had effectively been removed forever solely because Jeff doesn’t like it ?
I feel the Arcade is slowly but surely becoming 50 Shades of Deathmatch, and I don’t like it. Actually creative gamemodes, like Mayhem, Low Gravity (these two being the only two Arcade modes to actually change the game’s mechanics instead of just the rules) or CTF are appearing sporadically while you can make sure there will always be Mystery Heroes and some variant of Deathmatch (sometime even two) in the Arcade.
Personally, Total Mayhem is my favorite gamemode, and in fact the only one I still fully enjoy. The day they remove it is the day I stop playing.
Maybe I’m just being overdramatic, and it will come back like tomorrow, but still. I’m annoyed at the Arcade getting a little less creative everyday.
