Based on the poll Naughty Dog performed on their site last month, they’re performing another test on UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves’ multiplayer this weekend.
As they explain on their latest blog post:
Based on this poll and other collected community input we have decided to try a couple things out. This weekend we are instituting a “Plunder Only” playlist based on the overwhelming feedback and we’re making one other (temporary) change as well. Rather than add two new playlists at once we are going to try an experiment.
For this Experimental Weekend only, player health in ALL game types will be lowered to 65% of the current player health. This is exactly the same as the Crushing settings, only Boosters will still be allowed. The experimental weekend will run from Friday, December 4 at 10:00 AM PST through Monday, December 7 at 11:00 AM PST.
