I'm in the process of trying to outline all of Chaos Reborn's many game modes for some updates/revisions to the Chaos Reborn[Wikipedia page]. I've about thrown my hands up at being able to do so in a way which meets Wikipedia editorial best practice standards... because there are so many game modes and their variants. It's dizzying. Adding more won't necessarily make things better.

Basically, we're at the point where we can't pay Peter unless we rob Paul. So who do we pay, and who will we rob?

Are you not in favour of the Demi God Custom Game Modes then?

It depends what your preference is for in the first place, if you want to play 3 min matches... less is just less.

Indifferent. My understanding is that the Custom Match UI only gets very complicated for Demigods and Gods, who are among the most experienced and/or committed players. And the new Demigod+ customization options are not exactly creating a new game mode option tree which might keep new players from finding each other as they search for games down different rabbit holes; rather, they are providing more bells and whistles with which experienced players can entice new players to go down an existing rabbit hole to play a current game mode.
