Rift’s current warfronts can be fun. They each have a different objective that plays into how the map is to be played. The issue comes from the fact that most players simply go for kills. They ignore objectives (some will actually go out of their way to do so), sometimes out of not understanding what’s going on and sometimes due to just not caring. As someone who runs a lot of warfronts, this has been a recurring issue. While some will be doing the objectives properly, the vast majority don’t. To help resolve this, Rift really needs a match that is based on one thing and one thing only: kills.

Sure, cycling through them is a possibility, but what if you could just jump into a single room where players all collaborate? Luckily, this is a reality!
