The Capture & Hold mechanic needs an overhaul.
I agree.

Perhaps if every base that was captured provided a different bonus to the team that controlled it.

For example: More shields, More speed, More accuracy, More healing and whatnot

Also, one a base is "captured" defenses should spawn. These defenses would need to be taken out, BEFORE the base could be flipped. This would prevent that run-by flipping and add additional strategy to the game.

Finally... make it so that the losing team gets.. NOTHING. That involves daily's as well, to a degree. If you want your daily 3.. win or get .5 credits toward your daily 3. That would take it 6 rounds instead of the 3. This might discourage some of the AFK'ers a bit, because of the extra time they would have to invest.

These are just spitball ideas..nothing really deeply explored..but it could be better.
